It’s all about building your overall defensive structure. Your philosophy, your core teachings, your basic principles of defense are centered around your coverage and your front. Unfortunately, the fun stuff like your blitz package, your line twists, your disguises, do not figure into your basic defensive structure.
We have talked about the fronts, but it’s important to remember that your coverage determines the front. In this installment of our Coaching Basics series on Football-Defense.com, we focus on the difference between Man Coverage and Zone Coverage.
When deciding what kind of team you are going to be, you will need to choose between being a Man Coverage or Zone Coverage team. Each has it’s advantages and disadvantages that we cover in this video.
We also include some live game footage to show the difference in a “Man Turn” and a “Zone Turn.”
