The 3-4 Defense is one of the most popular schemes being used in High School, College and the NFL today. Unfortunately, just saying that you 'run a 3-4 Defense' won't tell anyone else a whole lot.
Sure, you use 3 down linemen and 4 linebackers. But they can be arranged in a huge variety of ways. And flexibility is one of the strengths of the 3-4 Defense.
Within JDFB Insiders, I teach The 3-4 Defense System as my own preferred brand of the scheme. It's not too complicated, and grew from our 4-2-5 Defense playbook.
Find another coach running the 3-4 Defense. It's likely that his version will look different.
You might 2-gap the defensive linemen. Or base out of a different coverage.
Or you might not call it a 3-4 Defense at all. Maybe you call this a 5-2 Defense. They're the same.
