Always a way to improve your game , even when you have limitations. Make the "outside of the box thinking" your benefactor not your adversary.

25 base defense

  1. 1. 25 D Defense used against spread gun teams with a weak running game. Or Defense has a limit on D-Line players. Roldan Leyba, Satellite HS. Satellite Beach , FL.
  2. 2. WHY • Kills inside run game, forces outside run by RB and QB. • Allows the use of Cover 3,4 and 2. • Allows 8 Defenders in Coverage • Allows Inside Stunts we call STICKS and Heavy Outside Blitz combinations, and Fire Zone against 50-60 fronts that will over- whelm the Offensive Line. • Forces RB in protection thus only 4 receivers can be used. • Mixes well with Base 43 and 34 Defense fronts. • Overloads field side Hash play without sacrificing and unbalancing the Defense front 7 or 8 • Easy install with three looks in the front.
  3. 3. Rules • Stay or Go Rule. OLB’s can attack or stay on outside to read play. If Team runs Zone read they read the QB. If team runs a pitch option they have RB. • Pick up #4.(RB) Strong and Will always pick up that RB who slides to lower flat even if Blitz call is on. • Trip receivers always check to our base Cover 21 call. Unless we have practiced another cover.
  4. 4. Personnel • Nose- must be the best and strongest D-Lineman • Tackle- Must be the fastest D-Lineman • Rifle-Strong Safety type and aggressive • Strong- outside linebacker who can hit and play TE 1 on 1. Will always have stay or go rule, pick up Number 4. • Buck- Agile Middle-line backer who can play hole coverage. • Mike a good strong Middle-linebacker who loves to blitz. • Will- a DE type who can play flat coverage and can read through and Key RB and QB • Wolf Corner/Corner can play cover2 read 1 to 2 or 1 to QB • SS can play 1 0n 1 with Slot and play Cov 2 and able to come up and force. • FS has to cover hash to hash easy in Cov 3.
  5. 5. Tackle and Nose play. • The Nose has to be able to 2 Gap read and get off his Man and make inside tackles. • The Tackle has the speed to force the blocking scheme and be the inside rush man. • They will only line up mid field 3 tech Outside shoulder of Guards or 2tech Head up on Guards(playing the hash) Nose will Line up on defense Head up on Center and play two gap. • With Tackle at 3 tech to field. • Calls are. Right Slant –Left Slant- Shoot- and Trash Bag are the Line calls.
  6. 6. Line call when Head UP only. • Slant right- The Nose and Tackle will slant to right. Nose will play Gap and over- which is play the gap at 1 Yard depth and play the next gap outside. • The Tackle will pass rush his Gap • Blitzes will be named to Backers names. WhaM , Will and Mike blitz. • Stick ,is a two Gap blitz. Like C gap to A gap move. • (see illustration)
  7. 7. Slant Right NT The Nose fights to 1 yard depth squares his shoulders and plays gap to outside / it allows inside stick from Will. W BM S Buck ,Reads and Reacts. 25 Base Slant Right WhaM STICK WhaM is Blitz call, STICK tells Will to go inside. STICK call only for S/W/R R Rifle, Reads and Reacts or in Cover Scheme. Will Blitzes two gaps inside
  8. 8. Slant Left NT The Nose fights to 1 yard depth squares his shoulders and plays gap to outside W BM S . R Any 25 call Blitz, Stick or Fire Zone can be called.
  9. 9. SHOOT Call is used to maximize Pass rush. This can be called on outside shoulder, hit the gap and go. • Can run Blitz, Fire Zone . • (please see illustrations on next slides.) • The alignment Of the Mike cause a forced blocking scheme and helps in the pass rush, freeing one rusher. The only adjustment is keeping the RB in for protection. ( This can open a screen to weak side) The adjustment is Strong takes TE man and Buck spies RB. Thus Screen heavy teams have a real problem with defense.
  10. 10. Shoot on 25 OUT with Buck Blitz NT W B S R TE M SS SS takes TE man- Strong Buzzes Curl taking inside route away from wide Receivers- 3 Man rush on Weak side. Mike spys inside blitz to center
  11. 11. Shoot on 25 Rifle /SS Fire Zone OUT NT W B S R TE M Fire Zone on TE side SS Strong Buzzes Curl and Buck turns and drops into seam reading TE taking Inside away. Cover 3 run behind Tackle cause the combo because of alignment of Rifle.
  12. 12. Shoot on 25 Rifle /SS Fire Zone OUT NT W B S R TE M Fire Zone on TE side SS Tackle cause the combo because of alignment of Rifle. Buck spys RB takes away weak side screen, strong side and middle screen.
  13. 13. Trash Bag • This call tells the Nose and Tackle grab the man inside you or head up and Bull rush him Back and Inside playing the outside shoulder Gap. • (see Illustration)
  14. 14. Trash Bag Call NT W B S R TE M Force Guards to Inside play outside Linebacker play can be Blitz to Read and React.
  15. 15. 3 Fronts to the Defense. • 25 ON- Nose and Tackle Head up on Guards • 25 Out-Nose and Tackle On outside shoulder of Guards. • 25 Over Right or Left- Nose on Center , Tackle on Outside shoulder of Guard- great on Hash Field side. • (illustrations next three pages)
  16. 16. 25 OUT NT W B S R TE M
  17. 17. 25 ON NT W B S R M
  18. 18. 25 Over (line in Middle hash on 60 front) NT W B S R TE M Buck plays Up on weak side. TRASH BAG is best Call for Line on this, it will seal Guard to Guard Gaps.
  19. 19. Covers • Covers Vs 2x2 –spread / Cover 20/30/32/34/31/40 • Covers Vs 3x1 spread /Cover 21/25 • Covers Vs 2x2 tight- ( with Tight End) 20/30/32/34/31/40 • Covers Vs 3x1 tight-( with Tight End) Cover 21/25 • Cover 20-21-25 (cover 2 scheme) • Cover 30-31-32/34(cover 3 scheme) • Cover 40 (quads ) • Can run Cover 1 and Zero also if talent allows.
  20. 20. We Pattern read using Triangles • Corners read 1 to2 or 5 to 4 . • Safeties read 1 to Ball or 5 to Ball • OLB´s read 2 to Ball or 4 to ball • Mike and Buck read Ball and cover Hook to Curl area or Hole. (NEVER LET SOME ONE CROSS YOUR FACE GO WITH HIM) • Cover 2 we funnel outside receivers inside and read thru to inside receiver. • Strong and Will have stay and go rule and pick up #4, the RB which can be numbered 3… this is just an expression I use.
  21. 21. 2X2 spread Cover 20 NT W B S RM 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C WSS FS
  22. 22. 3X1 spread Cover 21- Cover 2 with mixed Man cover NT W B S R M 1 2 4 5 Q3 C WSS FS Or best corner can cover Man we play the trips in half field or if on hash load field side. Rifle has #3 all the way.
  23. 23. 3X1 spread Cover 25- Cover 2 with mixed Man cover NT W B S R M 1 2 4 5 Q3 C W SS FS FS and W double cover- R buzzes the flat Mike hit high curl, Buck takes Hole Corner and SS play cloud to trip side.
  24. 24. 2X2 spread Cover 30 NT W B S RM 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C WSS FS
  25. 25. 2X2 spread Cover 31 NT W B S RM 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C WSS FS SS and R take Man on 2 and 4 receivers.
  26. 26. 2X2 spread Cover 32 NT W B S RM 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C WSS FS SS take Man on 2
  27. 27. 2X2 spread Cover 34 NT W B S RM 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C WSS FS R take Man on 4
  28. 28. 2X2 spread Cover 40 NT W B S R M 1 2 4 5 Q 3 C W SS FS TRIANGLE READ from all DB´s
  29. 29. Fire Zone, Blitz and Sticks. • 3 Plus 1 should always be the rush. Seeing that only three are rushing and the Nose is controlling. • 3 plus 2 is the best pressure package. • Using the Strong and Will in Fire Zone with SS and Rifle will stretch the offensive lines capability and make them keep a RB as a protector. • Sticks will allow the inside pass rush to collapse pockets quickly. This is a great way to play a pass heavy offense with a less mobile QB. • Remember you can't defend everything but you can control what and when you give offenses and cause them to alter and force the blocking patterns where it benefits the defense. • Lastly make your own front attacks that work for a particular opponent, my philosophy is take away their 10 best plays and make them use what they are not best suited for. • Roldan Leyba. all rights reserved roldanrene@hotmail.com
