1 Zone Blitzes & Coverages out of the 3-4 Defense Jim Hilvert Head Football Coach Thomas More College

2 Overview Why Zone Blitz? Keys to Zone Blitzing Teaching Blitz Coverage Two LB’er Blitzes Corner Blitz

3 Why We Like 3-4 Zone Blitzing Variations Defensive Ends Don’t Have to Drop Best Personnel on the Field

4 Keys to Zone Blitzing Communication – Safeties/DE/LB must talk to each other Collision WR’s – Be physical and re-route any vertical route Dictate where ball will be thrown – Don’t cover any route under 5 yds – Defend deep / Give up Flats Must work vs Run & Pass

5 3-4 Rambo Defense Rover – Strongside OLB Stud – Strongside DE End – Weakside DE Nose – 0 Technique Mike – Strongside ILB Panther – Weakside ILB Bob – Weakside OLB Whip – Safety away from Passing Strength Free Safety – Aligns to Passing Strength

6 3-4 Rambo Defense

7 Blitz Coverage = Buzz/Box 3 6 Players in coverage – 3 Deep are responsible for their 1/3 – 3 Underneath players are playing match up zone 2 SCIF Defenders (Seam/Curl/Flat) – I/S alignment on any #2 displaced WR – Responsible for collision on any vertical by #2 – Feel #2 / See #1 / Listen

8 Blitz Coverage = Buzz/Box 3 2 SCIF Defenders – Wall off any inside breaking route by #1 Curl Dig – Break on Flat Route when thrown 1 #3 Match Player – Opens up to #3 WR and react to route – If #3 goes out, “PUSH” and over take new #3

9 Blitz Coverage = Buzz/Box 3 O/S Deep 1/3 Defenders – Corners align 1x6 inside #1 WR – Slow shuffle out and must play 3 Step – Deep and deepest in their zone Middle 1/3 Defender – One Safety is a Post/Seam Defender – Will open up and run to middle 1/3 on snap – 15 yards deep after snap of ball

10 Coverage = Buzz 3/Box 3 3 Deep / 3 Under Coverage

11 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO SLAM IN BOX 3 – Mike will blitz strongside “B” gap – Panther will blitz strongside “A” gap – Nose will work away from Blitz – 2 way go – Stud and End are contain rushers Rover and Bob are SCIF players Whip is #3 Match Player FS is Deep Middle 1/3 Player

13 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO SLAM OUT BOX 3 – Mike will blitz strongside “C” gap – Stud will “Longstick” to “A” gap – Panther will blitz strongside “B” gap Should scrape right off Stud’s butt – Nose will work away from Blitz – 2 way go Rover and Bob are SCIF players Whip is #3 Match Player FS is Deep Middle 1/3 Player

14 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO SLAM OUT BOX 3

15 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO BANDIT IN BUZZ 3 – Bob will blitz weakside “B” gap – Panther will blitz weakside “A” gap – Nose will work away from blitz – 2 way go – Stud and End are contain rush Rover and Whip are SCIF players Mike is #3 Match Player FS is Deep Middle 1/3 Player

19 Tags for Two LB’er Blitzes Cross Tag – Tells LB’er to exchange gaps – LB’ers must communicate Split Tag – Tells LB’er to run “In/Out” Combo – Must communicate w/ DL Nose – Rome/London DE - Tracks

20 Tags for Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO SLAM IN CROSS BOX 3

21 Tags for Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO BANDIT SPLIT BUZZ 3

22 Corner Blitzes RAMBO WHISKEY 2 – Boundary blitz – Boundary Corner will blitz on snap – Panther will blitz strongside “C” gap We use Panther as a distraction – Nose will bull rush Center Bob will play Flat Mike must react to formation – Vs 2x2 work to weakside curl – Vs 3x1 work to #3 WR

23 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO WHISKEY 2 vs 2x2

24 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO WHISKEY 2 vs 3x1

25 Blitz Coverage = GOLD vs 2x2 6 Players in coverage – Corners play Man to Man – 3 Underneath players are playing match up zone 2 SCF Defenders (Seam/Flat) – O/S alignment on any #2 displaced WR #2 Out - Jump route #2 In – Squeeze and look for crosser #2 Vert – Collision and funnel to FS If 3x1 check Buzz 3

26 Overload Blitz RAMBO ROMO GOLD – 3 Defenders off an edge to RB – Ball must be on a hash Flutie – Field Boomer - Boundary – Nose aligns as 3 Tech away from blitz – Mike presses LOS and bails out Panther will rush outside to RB OLB to RB will delay blitz off edge DE will attack up field and then dip underneath

27 Blitz Coverage = Gold vs 2x2

28 Two LB’er Blitzes RAMBO ROMO GOLD vs 2x2 – “Boomer”
