This is the basic blitz package for the 3-4 Defense as we teach it in the 3-4 Defense System that’s a part of JDFB Insider.
First we’ll talk about the blitz package in the 3-4 Defense System and how the front, stunt, blitz and coverage all have to work together. This is going to be different depending on if you’re a 2-gap or 1-gap odd front.
Then we’ll look at those base blitzes, and why you might want to use them. And most coaches in the 3-4 Defense System want to use them on every down.
Finally we’ll talk about blitz technique considerations. Disguising blitzes with no show, show it and bluff looks. Blitzing on run downs vs pass downs, and training the eyes of your linebackers to read out of blitzes when necessary. There’s no reason to blitz a gap if they’re not running there.
