  1. I am looking for a base d with at least 4 backs that will hold up against the run. Any thoughts?

    1. There isn’t a defense with 4 or 5 cornerbacks that will hold up against the run. Unfortunately something like that doesn’t exist.

  2. I don’t see the 3-4 Bear in the KC Defensive playbook. Am I missing something?

  3. could you tell me in your opinion what the best formation is out of this ebook? i need to really learn one & know what to call in every situation

  4. I have a friend that plays on the defensive end himself and as soon as the balls snapped he comes flying around the corner like a bat out of hell how does he do it is there a presnap speed burst or a combination of pass rush moves I really need answers please

  5. Hey guys you doing great job. I love this defence ebook. Currently i having little trouble with people playing double drag routes (mesh play). Can you give me some advice how to improve my defence againts it. What formation (play) from you perspective works best?

    1. Hey! I’d recommend a cover 2 hard flat and put one of your defensive linemen in a QB Spy. It won’t stop it 100% of the time, but you should be able to limit it to about 3 yards

      1. Ok thank you for advice i will try to work on it.

  6. I do money games a ton and I want to know what will be good setup to stop the pass without blitzing

    1. If you don’t want to blitz, you will generally want to only rush 3 people and drop 8 into coverage. After that it is up to you with where you put zones or who you put into man coverage.

  7. Ive got a random question. How often does everyone guess “Pass” when on defense? Ive always used it most of the time but whenever I go to run the ball against the other team it is always telling me that I shouldnt run on them. Hope this makes sense.

    1. You should use pass commit when you think your opponent is passing or in a situation where even if he runs and you pass commit, you think it won’t be a big problem.

  8. I’m having trouble stopping the jet sweep out of 5 wide receiver sets any suggestions

    1. That is a really hard play to stop especially because you must respect the passing attack from that formation. My suggestion would be to shift your defensive line and linebackers to the side that they will run it to. It wont stop it every time but it should limit the big gains.

  9. Hey I was wondering how to stop hb stretch , tosses, and qb sneak if you guys know how. Keep up the good work guys you have helped me take my game to whole new level TY!

    1. Generally something like a cover 4 is a safe way to slow down most runs. To stop outside runs you will want to call a “wide” formation like 4-3 Wide. FG blocks generally do a good job of stopping qb sneaks but only run that on the goalline because otherwise you will be giving up easy touchdowns.
