Averages

The 4-3 Defense
‡ The offense may have difficulty getting a running back through this defense - and worse yet, in finding a receiver when there are four defenders deep down field.

Base 4-3 Alignment
‡ 1. Assume your defense faces a typical split-back offense. (Adjust the following formation to compensate for varying offenses) ‡ 2. Leave the CENTER unguarded. ‡ 3. Position a DT to either side of the center. Each blocks on the left side of opposing GUARDS. ‡ 4. Line the DE up to block the tight end head-up. ‡ 5. Position the other DE to block the outside shoulder of the opposing tackle. ‡ 6. Set two DBs in the secondary, aligned according to the called coverage. ‡ 7. Set three linebackers 3 to 4 yards off the line of scrimmage: one in front of the center, a second behind the left end, and a third in back and to the outside shoulder of the right end. ‡ 8. Position two safeties 10-12 yards away from the line of scrimmage, according to the called coverage.
