Those base concepts aren’t enough? No problem.

We start with 2 quick concepts and 5 drop back concepts. But that won’t limit you when we start talking tags. Today we’re looking at 4 tags for each of our Quick Game concepts.

When it’s time to make a big play, this 3-4 Defense Zone Blitz Package is there for you.

The 3-4 Defense System that I teach in JDFB Insider offers a ton of flexibility, so you’ll want to use it. But you need to know how to use it.

In this podcast, you find out how to use your 3-4 Defense Zone Blitz Package effectively. How and when to call your Single Edge Pressures, Interior Pressures, and Double Edge Pressures.

This is an advanced stage for your 3-4 Defense System, so make sure you review the podcasts on the base fronts and base blitz package below.

You can also run all of these 5 man pressures with a Cover 1 coverage, instead of the 3 under / 3 deep Zone Blitz coverage we discuss in the podcast.

During the course of a football game, there will be a few situations that are very hard to prepare for in your practice plan. They’re those situations where the crowd gets loud and emotions run high.

How can you get your players to play aggressive football on Game Day? There’s not a magic drill to fix this.

https://joedanielfootball.com/membership

It might be the biggest frustration I hear from coaches on a consistent basis. “My players just don’t play aggressive. They aren’t tough. How can we fix it!?”

Most coaches are not approaching this question the right way. You’ve got to address the root of the problem when your players aren’t playing aggressive enough. And it’s not just throwing your hands up and saying, “Kids these days!”

Today’s episode is all about the 4 areas you need to address to get ‘more aggressive’ play from your football team. And exactly what playing aggressive football really means.

Go back in time with the Oklahoma 5-2 Defense Playbook from the 1985 National Championship Season.

https://www.footballxos.com/download/oklahoma-sooners-5-2-defense-1985-gary-gibbs/

We’ve been looking at a lot of 3-4 Defense lately. I’m hearing more and more of it. So it makes sense to go back in time and look toward the origins of the 3-4 Defense.

That means we get to break down a playbook! I found the perfect one with an aggressive defensive scheme from the 1985 Oklahoma Sooners. This 5-2 Defense has a great look at multiple fronts from the 3-4 Defense (or 5-2 Defense) and a coverage package that will fit right in for today’s game.

There’s some adjustments to be made. But it’s great to see how the defense fits perfectly with the Umbrella Principle and mirrors so much of what we do in the 3-4 Defense System.

 

Mar 15, 2019

This is the basic blitz package for the 3-4 Defense as we teach it in the 3-4 Defense System that’s a part of JDFB Insider.

First we’ll talk about the blitz package in the 3-4 Defense System and how the front, stunt, blitz and coverage all have to work together. This is going to be different depending on if you’re a 2-gap or 1-gap odd front.

Then we’ll look at those base blitzes, and why you might want to use them. And most coaches in the 3-4 Defense System want to use them on every down.

Finally we’ll talk about blitz technique considerations. Disguising blitzes with no show, show it and bluff looks. Blitzing on run downs vs pass downs, and training the eyes of your linebackers to read out of blitzes when necessary. There’s no reason to blitz a gap if they’re not running there.

You don’t need to have pads on when you’re teaching tackling to your football team. Find out how to get it done!

Teaching tackling to your football team and seeing better results on game day will done more for your football team’s winning percentage than anything else you can do. After all, this game is still all about blocking and tackling.

There’s an entire off-season for your team to improve their tackling. And with rule changes being put in place limiting live contact, you may be teaching tackling with no pads on all season long!

In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll share tons of drills you can use to teach tackling to your football players without any contact. And without screaming WRAP UP!

The Run and Shoot Offense set records in the USFL in 1984. Let’s see what we can learn from what they learned in 1985!

 

A few weeks ago I started looking at the Run and Shoot Offense. With the assistance of Jason Hahnstadt’s Demistifying the Run and Shoot Offense video series, I came up with a base understanding of the offense. But I wanted to go deeper.

Do I think the Run and Shoot Offense is the right direction for a High School Football team to go? Only if you have a background and a guaranteed Quarterback pipeline. Do I think there are elements we can take from the offense? Absolutely.

So I dug around through a few Run and Shoot Offense playbooks. Settled on the 1985 Houston Gamblers playbook with… wait what? Kevin Gilbride? No idea. That’s who’s on the front page. John Jenkins was the Offensive Coordinator after Mouse Davis had moved on to the new Denver Gold.

Yes, this is the first time we’ve ever talked about the USFL in the history of The Football Coaching Podcast. Coincidence, with the AAF coming around this year? Yes. Completely.

Anyway, here’s the links to the playbook and some other useful links for Run and Shoot Offense enthusiasts…

No matter how good you are, every coach is going to lose some games. But there is a silver lining to every cloud!

Every coach wants to win. And there are times when your job will depend on it. But every loss can’t be a soul crushing defeat that sends you into the doldrums for a week.

In this episode, we’re going to break down losing into 3 categories of losses. Then we’ll look at how you can best deal with each type of loss. You’ll find out how to get the most out of each loss, so that your team moves forward instead of bogging down and falling behind.

Give the same look to the Quarterback every snap using Roll Cover 3 coverage. Here’s how to do it.

The simplest way to disguise your coverage is to give the same look on every snap. One way to accomplish that is to align your safeties and corners across the field in a straight line - then adjust before (or after) the snap.

On this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll go in detail on installing a Roll Cover 3 system into your defense. This is based off of our 4-3 Defense System packages, but can be incorporated to any defensive package with a few adjustments.

Get the most out of your passing game drill progression by having a plan. Here’s how to have success in the air, faster.

Want to get the most out of your passing game? You’ve got to have a plan for your passing drills. There’s a lot more to it than just working the QB’s throwing motion, too.

A lot more, in fact. And a lot more than playing 7 on 7. In this episode, I’ll outline how to plan your passing game drill progression to work your most important route concepts to perfection.

We’re breaking down the Run and Shoot Offense. Here’s what I’ve learned in a very, very short period of time.

It may be football’s greatest mystery. The most complex offensive play design out there. For myself, it’s the single offensive system I knew absolutely nothing about.

Time to change that! This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast is a look at the Run and Shoot Offense. I’ll look at a few base passing plays and see what we can learn from this offensive system.

The Run and Shoot Offense is fascinating. I don’t know of any other system that has achieved such high levels of success without spreading like wildfire through the High School and College coaching ranks. Maybe we’ll be able to figure out why!

You beat them once. Or maybe you lost to them. But this is your second game against the same opponent!

Is your Goal Line Defense ready to make the critical, game winning stop? Probably not.

Your opponent drove the ball the length of the field. They’re inside your 5 yard line. It’s time to make the big stop.

Defensive Coordinators need to take a big step forward right now - and accept that getting the stop is not very likely. After all, you couldn’t stop them up til now.

But if you CAN make that big stop? What a momentum changer! So your Goal Line Defense needs to be ready to show up.

In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, we’ll install a basic goal line package for the 4-2-5 Defense that gives your guys a shot to be heroes (even when they probably shouldn’t be).

How can you have better practice planning in significantly less time? Here’s how to plan efficient and effective practices.

We’ve all been through those long practices that seem to drag on forever. It’s not productive, no matter how long you spend out on the field.

And then get home to your family earlier?

It can be done. But you’ve got to commit to a more efficient practice plan. In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll share with you how to get the job done!
