Purpose for The Football-Defense Report

On this site, we discuss all aspects of defensive football.  Writing helps me to think more deeply about topics.  In addition, I appreciate comments and questions from anyone.  You can get a good idea about my philosophy by reading the articles here and by reading my free eBook, Defensive Installation Manual.  It helps to further my learning as well as other readers.

I have  written three eBooks on coaching defensive football:  Coaching Football’s 4-2-5 Defense, Installing Football’s 4-3 Over Defensive Front and Dominating Football Defense with the Zone Blitz.  I have also done a full Video Series on Defending the Spread Offense which you can read more about here.

In 2012, I came out with my first Offensive eBook, Spread Offense: The Running Game.

    How do you adjust your d-linemen/lb’s (let’s say a 3 man front) to nasty splits. Recommend splitting the difference to take away inside or something else?
