Coaching the 46 forever....you?
« on: July 03, 2018, 06:20:54 AM »
Its been well over a decade. In fact I fell in love with 46 in 1985 and have studied it all.

We again are basing from my 46 GUTS defense which is super simple and great for our small school roster. Every year though, I revisit Rex Ryan stuff.

Who else is running a 46 ( not 4-6)?

Steve, I have always wanted to run a 46, but the league rules make it pretty much impossible to run it...I have to have every player with a starting position and they have to play the entire game...so that means I won't have the horses to run a 46 :(
None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

Still running it although we have dabbled in other stuff here and there.

Great Defense.

Better people....no matter what you run, better players on the other side of the ball is always the biggest problem.

Schematic issues arise when players dont do what they are coached to do and you end up running “ an alignment” but no techniques or reactions are evident....

Small schools like my own, may have issues with depth and must cross train several players.
