There’s a few myths in coaching offensive line run blocking that we need to break through. Then we can start to build a better run game.
In this episode, we’ll talk about why you don’t need your Offensive Linemen to sustain blocks longer. Or drive their man down the field. And how you can make your less talented Offensive Line look like a group of All Pro’s with a few minor adjustments.
Coaches love to over-complicate things. In a lot of situations, the less complicated answer would be the better one. That’s often the case with coverage packages.
Aside from trying to run every coverage, many coaches are running a coverage that is much more complicated than necessary. If you’re in a league, conference or level where the teams you need to beat are run heavy offenses, Cover 3 coverage might be perfect for you.
I’m going to break down how to teach Cover 3 coverage for the 4-2-5 Defense, but the teachings are very similar no matter what defensive front you choose.

It’s nice to do a podcast where you don’t need any notes. You’ve talked about something so many times that it just flows.
That’s the Power Series for me. It’s the foundation of our offense, and has been for a number of years.
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll go in depth on the details for executing the Power, Counter, Power Pass and Counter Pass in the Pistol Power Offense System.
