1 coachcousins@yahoo.com 1 Defending the spread offense with the 3-5-3/3-3-5 Thomas Cousins

2 coachcousins@yahoo.com 2 What teams running the spread try to do. Get us to remove linebackers from the box and lose gap integrity. Rub or mesh our DBS when we are in man. Find holes in our zone coverage. Get us thinking pass and bust us with the run. Pick up our blitzes and give their QB time to throw. Reduce outside pressure by making our OLBS cover receivers.

3 coachcousins@yahoo.com 3 What we try to do to teams running the spread. Force the QB to throw under distress. Maintain gap integrity. Confuse the QB by disguising and changing coverages. Force the QB to try and find the holes in our zone coverage. Shut down the run by maintaining gap integrity, and in turn making the offense one dimensional.

4 coachcousins@yahoo.com 4 Our beliefs: We feel that we can dictate to the offense what they can and cannot run. We do not want to be counter punchers, we want the offense to stay off balance. We want the offense waiting to see what we are going to do next. We want to send as much pressure as possible. We will void zones in zone coverage.

5 coachcousins@yahoo.com 5 Vocabulary Sky- tells us that we are showing cover 3, but rolling to cover 4 with the whip and free safety. Will ILB has hook/curl/flats weak Banjo- when an OLB is called on to blitz but is responsible for a player in man coverage. The OLB will call banjo to either tell the free safety to take his man or banjo the blitz to the inside linebacker to perform. Cover 1- man free coverage. We are man underneath and our free safety is playing centerfield. Cover 4- true quarters coverage. Cover 3- three deep zone coverage Man- true man to man coverage. Cat- tells the will linebacker to slide out to 4x4 Sam and Will- our two inside linebackers Stud and Whip- our two outside linebackers
