Quarters Normal is a formation that truly is timeless. Each and every year there is a viable scheme from the formation, and then there are always a large group of people that have no idea what they are doing and use Quarters 2 Man Under as their hope and pray defense. This article focuses on bringing you a scheme that you can run from Quarters Normal that will not only be great coverage, but also pressure from either side to keep your opponent guessing. This was supposed to be an update to our Teardown Defensive Guide, however in honor of 10k Twitter followers we decided to release it for FREE on the website.

PLAYBOOK: Any 4-3 Based Defensive Playbook

First we look at some common coverage adjustments, and then we will branch into pressure from either side of the field, and finally a setup that with a good amount of speed will bring pressure from both sides. Run defense from Quarters Normal is fairly decent on its own simply because of how wide the defense is, but if you know how to shoot gaps effectively it can also be stifling between the tackles as well.
