3 Why we Zone Blitz Positives Disguise Blitz & Coverage Allow to Blitz w/o Playing Man to Man Allows to be Multiple = FUN Negatives Defensive Ends Drop Soft Underneath Weak in the Seams/Flats

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 4-3 Stack Defense Rover – Strongside LB Stud – Strongside DE Tackle – 3 Technique Mike – Middle LB Bob – Weakside LB Whip – Strong Safety Free Safety – Aligns to Passing Strength

6 4-3 Stack Defense

7 Coverage = Buzz 3 3 Deep / 3 Under Coverage

8 Blitz Coverage = Buzz 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

9 Blitz Coverage = Buzz 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

10 Blitz Coverage = Buzz 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
