We play our Hound aka FS at 7 and 1/2 Over Nub Side Guard in Base .Obviously based on situations it can change. We have our hound key guard when he's step stepping (Read Steps )within those two steps he's able to get get a clean run read and fill A B to C with no hesitation always getting his nose in on run play. Those same read steps also allows him to get his pass clue and key when when constantly working technique.

I know what flows rules are. But is it the same thing as pattern match?

no, pattern matching is a pass coverage philosophy.

how so? pattern matching is covering the pass through the distribution of receivers.
flow is understanding your run fit based on the backfield action.

i mean i guess they are the same thing in the way that the run and the pass is essentially the same thing......

flow rules are  essentially linebackers and a safety  taking #s 2,3, 4 and after distribution.

i dont follow that logic. no one is taking anyone.

most of the time flow rules are gap rules:

Fast Flow To - fill & spill
Slow Flow To - scrape & chase
...etc.

That is what I thought as well. Sorry for the confusion. I think pattern match and "flow rules are the same thing and for the reason I gave you. I was just wanting to confirm. if you find something let me know. Thanks for the help.

Running the 353. I have not played a Single Hi Safety in probably 8 seasons.

I am now reminded what a waste it is to play this way.

How can I play him as a Monster in a 35 Defense?...or something other than a 3rd level defender?  I have so much going on with the Spurs and the OLB's already....it seems like the FS might get in their way if I bring him down as a 2nd level defender.

Any thoughts?

Invert Cov. 2 Robber against 2 back!

CBs drop to deep 1/2 and stay over top of #1 when they read pass.  The S basically reads the EMOL for a run/pass read.

If it's a pass read, he gets over top of #2 vertical if he goes past 10 yards or so.  If #2 does not go vertical, the S then just gets underneath #1 on the post.

The run defense is where this really helps, though...

This coverage allows your FS to cheat up and still be a "3rd level" defender, aligned at maybe 7-8 yards deep and behind your MLB or over the strong G to run the alley.  Think of him like a defensive version of the I formation TB here.  The MLB would be the "FB" and take on things in the hole with your FS cleaning up anything that slips through.

If it's an obvious passing down, you can have him play the MOF in Cov. 3.
