There are MANY coverages for different situations.  Tampa 2 is only ONE of them (NOT a complete defensive package in itself)!

I played for a cover 2 4-3. Team in college.

We were pretty aggressive vs  closed sets. Any coverage in theory works when every understands how they fit vs run.

We never ran fire zone

Vs a run dominant team we had double calls. Cover 2 vs closed set...cover 3 vs open set.  When we played James Madison in one of those gimme money so we can kick your butt games we ran a lot of "63" cover 6 vs single closed cover 3 vs open.

Two of Dick LeBeau's DEFENSIVE SIGNAL CALLERS played for me in High School.  Darren Perry (F/S CALLED Steelers' defense from 1992-1998 AND coached the Steelers' secondary from 2003-2006) & James Farrior (ILB CALLED the Steelers' defense from 2002-2011).

They have given me DETAILS of the defense (DVD; power-points; etc.).  They checked out of most "pressure-packages" vs. teams that used 7 man protection (like WE do).  They preferred it vs. 5 & 6 man protection teams.

This sums up the feeling:

Attacking the Zone Blitz

By Bruce Arians
Offensive Coordinator - Pittsburgh Steelers (NOW HFC of AZ Cardinals)

Every year we all come up with "new" and improved ways to out-attack our opponents. The zone blitz of the 1990s is one such defensive innovation that has created havoc for quarterbacks at all levels. Historically, QBs have been taught to pre-snap read safeties to alert themselves of the potential of a "dog" (LB) or blitz (DB). The difficulty caused by the zone blitz is that effective use of the package does not allow the QB to trust any pre-snap gathering of information by alignment, making him a totally reactive player and essentially putting him on the defensive.

Coaches must have excellent research and prep on what our opponents do by formation, tendencies, and personnel. As we prepare our game plans, our job is to arm the QB with the knowledge necessary to "attack the defense," rather than sit back and be attacked. Providing our QBs with a thorough idea of what coverages an opponent's defense will be in, their intentions, and tendencies in specific situations vs. specific formations, is the key to counter-attacking. The following are some examples of zone dogs and blitzes.

Offenses during the '70s and '80s had the tendency to free release four or five receivers, with the QB responsible for handling a "hot" LB or DB, and with a sight adjustment by a receiver or a built-in quick receiver route. Too often with the use of the zone blitz, the defense is able to trap the "hot" receiver - exposing the quarterback to being hit hard and often.

When an offense free-releases three receivers to the strength of the formation, the defense can create and trap the hot receiver, TE or TB. By showing a two-deep alignment, the QB has no pre-snap read for the two-man blitz or dog. The strong safety (linebacker) takes away the flat-breaking route and the weakside LB runs to the TE look-in route, forcing the QB to throw away the ball or eat it.

Vs. the one-back offense with four free receivers, the Cover two zone dog creates a "hot" one side or the other, with a DL and corner trap on the in- or out-breaking receiver.

Sometimes the best way to beat a new scheme is to look back at the past. That's where being true students of the game comes into play. We need to re-examine the old playbooks of the '60s and review the plays that called for backs and receivers to "check release" - still allowing the QB five potential receivers, but protecting him from seven defenders. These can be very effective vs. the zone blitz.

Offensively, we need to take a look in the past and give the QB protection, then release our five receivers.

Once we protect the QB, we can now exploit the big holes in the zone defense.

All that is left is deploy your receivers in places that are good vs. the dog or blitz, and, also, will work vs. coverage employed. But that's another story. Remember, never lose the attack mode on offense.


PS:  Run an option - it is MURDER vs. Zone Blitz!!!

Thanks for the post ... learned somethin new today.  My question is regards to this statement.

"They have given me DETAILS of the defense (DVD; power-points; etc.).  They checked out of most "pressure-packages" vs. teams that used 7 man protection (like WE do).  They preferred it vs. 5 & 6 man protection teams"

How do you identify or start to identify the # man protection.

Ide assume it a scouted key e.g.. personnel ...down ...distance ect.

Any keys given pre snap?

Good old fashioned Film work (breakdown by D&D; personnel package; tendencies in specific situations vs. specific formations; ETC.). 

PS:  It is similar to the work we do for our offense in determining calls vs an opponent's pass coverages.

What we look for in breaking down an opponent's offense via film.

ATTACHED is a form we got from the Steelers, & used on the COLLEGE level.

The Steelers' BASE coverage concept is Cover 6 = "QUARTER-QUARTER-HALF".  They want "Quarter" coverage to the TE side so they can get S/S Polamalu down in fast run support to the TE side.  On the SE side they play "Half" with Corner Ike Taylor up in run support.  They also have the traditional Cover 2, Cover 3, Cover 4.

PRESSURE PACKAGE:  (ATTACHED IS AN OUTLINE):

PS: This is all I can share of their defense online (due to "confidences").  Would be glad to talk via PHONE about it to anyone interested.
