2 Example of 2 TE Formations: “ACE”Double Tight I “Double Wing”“Trio”

3 Review of Gap Responsibilites B N M ABCBCA RL EE SB

4 Strategy Considerations How do we defend 8 gaps across the front? To load or not to load the Tight Ends? Playing the Counter & Trap: wrong arm? Defending 4 vertical threats vs. 1 back

5 Consideration 1:Defending 8 gaps Structure of the 3-3 handles all 8 gaps by base alignment: E EN LM R B C C S F 12345678

6 Loading the TE: 1.Walk Spur up to a 6 technique, and slants inside. Have a change up where he loops outside. 2.Put Lion/Ram in a 6 tech, walk up Spur, bring both. 3.Bring the Spur into a 9. 4.Walk the strong side backer over the tight end Advantages include having a player aligned on the TE Disadvantages include losing a flat defender in pass coverage & a “hang” player for counter. Not Loading the TE: 1.Maintain base alignment 2.Spur play 1 yard off and 1 yard outside the TE. Read near foot for down, reach, base blocks. 3.Spur play 2 yards off and one yard outside the TE Consideration #2: To Load or not to Load Tight End?

7 Loading the TE on either or both sides: 1.Walk Spur up to a 6 technique, slant inside End slants inside as well Spur and Lion gap exchange; Lion becomes run force in cover 3 3-3 vs. 2 Tight Ends: Loading the TE(s). E L S EN R B C F M

8 Loading the TE on either or both sides: 2. Walk Spur up to a 6 technique, loop outside and maintain run force End and Lion gap exchange; End slants inside to C gap Lion backer maintains normal b gap responsibility E L S EN R B C F M 3-3 vs. 2 Tight Ends: Loading the TE(s).

9 ELSEN R B C F M Loading the TE either or both sides : Put Lion in a 6 tech, walk up Spur into a loose 7, bring both. (Ram in 6, Bandit for opposite tight end side) “Smoke” (“Torch” to other TE) 3-3 vs. 2 Tight Ends: Loading the TE(s).
