We don't need to....the defensive playbook (all three pages) was done color-coded in crayola......

You guys have it right that the 5-2 and 3-4 are basically the same defense. When we scout a teams defense we chart whether they line up in an even or odd front, not if its a 5-2 or 4-3 or 3-4 or 4-4. All our offensive guys want to know is if there is a nose or 2-techs. I have been scouting for 4 years now and basically we spend more time on coverages and tendencies than we do on alignment in the defensive front. This may have to do with the fact that we zone block so much and the assignment can change with how the defense moves moreso than how they are aligned.

Just last year we changed from a 4-4 (Texas Tech) look to a 4-2-5 (TCU) Not much changed except that we shifted our dt's into a 1-3 alignment. The olbs stayed the same except they were now called SS instead of olb's.

Coach Mac,
Regarding a 5-2 or 3-4, I want to know how the OLB's function. My distinction between the two focuses on that. If the OLB's function as DE's (in a 5-2), then that's important to me. If they act as LB's (in a 3-4), same thing.

Whether they line up a NG or a 2-tech doesn't matter all that much to me, because like you guys, we're a zone blocking team.

This just goes to further show how different staffs prioritize different things. One's not better than the other, just a different approach. Hope to hear from you more often, coach! Gig 'em

Boy Howdy, what a thread.

I learned that OL could read and that a hard drive by the DE up field really sets up the inside twist or the "Thumbs" rush as we call it.

Thanks guys.

Coach Ring...we don't have a defensive playbook. We just line up eleven sociopaths and tell them to find the football as fast as they can.

Gentlemen,

1) This is my favorite kind of thread.
2) Watching old Coach Fran footage...He & Torbush run a 4-2-5 look? Is this close? 4DT 2LB 2CBs 2SS/Rovers & 1FS? (Ignore gaps)
