FBCP S03E06 Coaching Cover 3 Coverage in the 4-2-5 Defense

What’s the simplest, most effective coverage you can teach? Let’s take a look at coaching Cover 3 Coverage in the 4-2-5 Defense.

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.

QC 125 The Best Defense for Single Wing Offense

How do you stop the Single Wing Offense? What’s the best defense for it?

The Single Wing Offense is a tough one. It looks a lot different than what you might see week in and week out.

I have a little insider knowledge, as we used an unbalanced Single Wing alignment to run our goal line offense. You wouldn’t believe the looks your players have to deal with!

Today’s episode answers the question, “How do you stop the Single Wing?” It’s not as complicated as you might think!

PSSO S4E8 Breaking Down Frost’s UCF Offense And What Makes It Awesome!

What you can learn from Frost’s UCF Offense.  Get RPO tricks, the “Spacing” concept and “Shakes” route from these 5 plays broken down.

 

UCF under Scott Frost had one of the most prolific offenses of Division I football last season. So I decided to crack it open with an analysis of his first five plays of the AAC championship game against Memphis. In these first five plays I talk about the Spacing Route and why the progression starts from the sideline, the “shakes” route and progression, a simple RPO pre-snap read and why the QB gives it instead of keeping or throwing the bubble screen.

There’s always a lot you can learn from breaking down an offense, especially when you get the All-22 film with sideline and end zone camera angles. It just takes a long time to do it! So here’s a little taste of an upcoming new breakdown we have of every single offensive play from the game.
