We get into huge arguments about defensive fronts. Ridiculous arguments.
You can’t stop [insert offensive style, formation, play] in the [insert defensive front].
It’s pretty ridiculous when you sit down and think about it. Good defense is good defense.
Alignments just put our players in the best position for success. And that’s all those numbers really mean – alignment.
Your actual defensive scheme is based on your teaching. Who has what, when this happens.
That’s why we use the term Align to Perform so much. Study tendency, know what they want to do, and put yourself where you need to be.
I’m not talking about studying every single tendency. I’m talking about the big one’s. Best plays. Favorite formations. Key downs.
Who are they?
I just want our guys to know our opponent. Know their identity. Everyone has one.
It might be a particular play. A formation. Often, it’s just a player.
Align to stop that guy.
Your kids have to understand your defense. They may have to learn some new techniques. You have to know that you have enough time and that the change is worth it.
But beyond that, anyone can run Multiple Front Defenses.
I’m not recommending it, nor am I recommending against it. It all depends on your personality, what your kids can handle, what your coaches can handle.
You have to make that decision just like you’d decide on any change in your defense.
But if you really want to do it… if you really think it will help… go for it.
And stop posting on my Facebook page that one defense is better than the other. You sound ignorant.
