5-2 Normal

INTRODUCTION:

With every patch the game changes. People look for new things on both sides of the ball. Most people follow the lead of others. Here we went outside the box to find the next dominant formation in the game. While we consider running this defense to be more advanced than a lot of set it and forget it defenses – we feel that utilizing this will bring many many rage quits in your future. Please be mindful and watch every video as we go into deep analysis on how to run this defense correctly.

Below you will find each play with its own section laid out within tabs. When possible we will also go over an advanced strategy that may require more adjustments, a complete understanding of the formation, or quicker fingers to complete the play. Make sure to learn the entire body of content to ensure that your defense is starting to lockdown.

In this group of tabs we will go over plays that we blitz out of. Our main play here in Pinch, which is a Cover 0 man blitz. Because of this you will want to make sure you are comfortable with that shell. Additionally we discuss changing coverage shells to disguise coverage and use other stock plays to generate pressure as well.
