Trips open, or backside TE? Or is it Trey?

Bump your backers & play 1/4 1/4 1/2 behind them. Have the OLB drop horizontal looking for the back.

Bump & 1/4 1/4 1/2 very easy now & still gap sound. Not a lot of adjusting to do.

He plays 1/2 deep, virtually manned up on the TE. He uses the hash as his landmark.

Regardless of the front we see 1/4 1/4 1/2 to trips almost always. We do have things to beat it, but if you don't plan for it it's difficult.

Are you sure this is the alignment? This is not trips as the #3 is not eligible. I agree 1/4 1/4 1/2.

I just thought it was a typo. I assumed #3 was off.

That's exactly the Bump adjustments for the backers I was trying to describe!

This season, we are strictly a Cover-0 team. Corners get #1, Safety takes #2 and Sam will Cover #3. Bump & Run any reciever on the LOS (inside shade) Safety plays about 7 yds off and Sam plays about his normal Linebacker depth, inside shade.

Backside is an Auto Blitz by the corner if there is a TE and Will covers the TE. If that reciever is split out, the corner will be inside shade, B&R.

Any side there is no TE, the DE will attack the near hip of the back.

Honestly though, my best pass defense is the simple fact that most 9 yr. old kids really can't throw that well.

We are a 53 team that slides our defense to an under.  So what we do is we call the strength opposite the RB so our DE on one side ends up playing like a 34 LB and end up playing Cov 3 to it.  Depending on what their passing game and run game is we adjust.
