As defensive coaches, we’re constantly stuck between keeping coverages simple enough for our kids to execute, and complex enough to make an opposing QB wrong.
In today’s episode we will discuss how to change-up from your base coverage, ways to disguise what you’re doing from play to play, and small tweaks that can change up your base to make it more effective for the team you’re facing without slowing down the play of your players.
We’ve discussed revolving offenses in previous episodes, and how there is no king of the mountain. However, the spread offense has held its own for several years.

Sometimes the season just doesn’t go your way. Every season, at every level, there are teams at the bottom of the standings. Every season there is even an NFL team who is so bad, they get the #1 draft pick. Most of us have had to deal with it at one point or another.

In today’s episode, we will discuss playing out a season that hasn’t gone your way, when to pull the plug, and what your plan moving forward should be.
