3-4 PHILOSOPHY
‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ ‡ Unique Scheme ± can cause offensive confusion Find and Recruit Less Defensive Linemen Ability to put best players on the field (LB¶s) Multiple/Disguise ± slant to/ stem to/ movements to different fronts Nose guard increases pressure on center O-Line must face a D-Line that will 2-gap, shade,slant, or run games Creates pass rush mismatches (olb¶s on backs,guards,tackles) Offense has to account for 7 potential immediate rushers (five of them on the L.O.S.) Zone Pressure Package easier because LB¶s can replace pass zones rather than defensive linemen System- Can change the scheme and players are not phased by it Balanced ± Can ³mirror´ offensive formations
