3-5-3 Defense vs. Dbl Tight I Formation
« on: August 26, 2015, 05:05:20 PM »
We were all set to run the new Killer B this year but it was decided for us that we would run a version of the 3.5.3 Defense.  I am looking for advice on defending this formation in our first game this weekend.  They dont pass very much if any and its a pretty plain jane offense from what I can tell.  They run bootleg L/R, Power Lead/Dive L/R, Counter to the WB L/R and some Speed using the Slot L/R

                 $  (10yds)
C                                 C (6X2 from LB's)
                M
 LB     W            S    LB (W/S are stacked 3.5yds deep LB's are (1X1 EMOLS)
          T      N     T   
       X X X O X X X
     X          X
                 X
                 X
Offtackle L/R (move WB right side)

                 $

C                                  C
               M
 LB    W            S       LB
         T      N     T
       X X X O X X X
                 X           X
                 X
                 X
Naked Boot L/R (move WB L/R)
Counter L/R to WB

               $

C                                  C
               M
 LB    W            S       LB
         T      N     T
    X X X O X X X
 X           X                     X
              X
Speed to the Slot L/R

Anyone with any advice on defending this, I input the way I see we will defend with what were running?

Thanks,
Chris

Bring LB's up to 9 techs.   Have them attack thru the TE.... It works best if they are your toughest kids.

Tough to say as our version of the 33 is quite a bit different from what you are using ... but we are different because youth offenses are traditionally quite a bit different and more simple than HS or College offenses where the traditional version of the 33 was 'invented' ...

We have our DOGs (LBs for you) work hard to keep outside arm free while squeezing and attacking the deepest back coming to their side ... their main focus is to make the runner change directions ... so either bounce really deep if you try to get outside or cut back up into the 'alley' where our pursuit can handle their business ...

Noone can run between the tackles because we are blitzing all 3 LBs (from the heels of our down linemen) at the snap so we fill all 6 interior gaps with bodies ... forcing them to bounce into our DOGs, CORNERs and REAPER coming downhill to meet them at the LOS ...

Feel free to check out our version of the defense at this link ... http://coachsomebody.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/33-Stack-FREE-Play-Book.pdf

Defend 3 verticals and put the rest in the box, I would jump in and out of under and bear Fronts if you have them.

33 needs to be multiple when it's trying to defend something other then spread  imo
