3-3 Stack Against the Pass
Rick Streiff Head Coach
Adam Barth DC
Defensive Line Play
• Pass Rush Technique:
-No lanes just get penetration
Heavy Call – Ends stay outside – keep QB
in pocket better runner than thrower
• Jet call – first threat technique – C gap player
Sam/Will Linebacker
Pass Read QB off the line:
-Drop on #2 depth of 5-7 yds.–cover the
Hook first then to Curl no deeper than
10 yards (main responsibility for
stopping outside screens)
-If there is a full Sprint/Boot to: Sam/Will
have contain-go take QB
Sam/Will Linebacker
-“Outlaw” call– if #2 is too wide or if there is a
Trips formation Sam/Will makes an Outlaw call
that sends End to Sam/Will’s side into the B gap
and widens Sam and Will’s alignment
Blitz Rule
ILB will make “me” call and will blitz in place of
OLB (Snake/Bear) when there is a wide #2
receiver.
Mike Linebacker
Drop over #3 receiver
Low Hole player – cover receivers in the hole at
a depth of up to 8-10 yards.
Unless S/W blitz then fills their Hook/Curl
Spy on QB
Snake/Bear
Cover 4: Open to #1 and try to get under #1. As
OLBs start to drop they must listen for “FLAT” call
from the Corner – take a shallow flat path and
sprint to smash the #1 receiver on a quick route.
(out/hitch) Corner should make other calls like
“IN”, “OUT” or “DEEP” to tell the OLB what route to
expect from the WR.
Continue to Sink or trail #1 until flat is pressured
by #2 or 3. If #2 / 3 runs to the flat, widen with him
but stay on top of the flat route and break on the
ball. Be able to break up on the short route and
back on any deep route. -If the flat route converts
into a wheel route up the sideline the OLB must
run with the wheel.
Snake/Bear Cover 2
Cover 2: Align head up to outside shade of #1. OLB, at
the snap will keep the butt to the sideline and quickly
sink. Read EMOL for run/pass.
If they read pass, use “Read Squat” technique which
means they outside trail #1 (butt to the sideline) as
long as #2 is going vertical or inside.
If # 2/3 comes outside the OLB will squat-reroute #1
inside and level out over #2/3 at 10 to 12 yards and
stay on top of the flat route and break on the ball. Be
able to break up on the short route and back on any
deep route.
If the flat route of #2/3 converts into a wheel route up
the sideline the OLB must run with the wheel.. OLBs
still have Contain and CRCB as they did in Cover 4.
Play Cover 2 like Cover 4 but from a wide alignment.
Blitz Call
Blitz Rule :ILB will blitz in place of OLB
(Snake/Bear) when there is a wide #2 receiver;
“me” call will be made by ILB w/ wide #2
Corners
Alignment:
*Cover 4 -Split #1 and #2 (does not have to be
halfway in between) at depth of 7 yards. If
Corner has FS help to his side he can align wider.
(5 yards inside #1, 7 yds deep; no more than 4-5
yards inside of the hash in a tight #1 alignment)
Corners
Read: Key QB to backfield action.
-Backpedal and play pass first –stay deeper
than the deepest.
-Roll coverage with sprint out or boot away
3 Step drop: be ready to break on ball at the
interception point (where ball will be, not where
man is when ball thrown)
5 Step drop: back pedal until cushion
threatened; open and play as deep as the
deepest while ranging
Corner – Bunch Technique
• Tight Wing or Trips Bunch
Pass- Outside Vertical on pass
v. single Tight End (as in Twins Formation)
Pass- #1 Vertical
Corners
Cover 2 or 4
-Deep half of field – coaching point: after read…
Range, Range, Range-break on QB draw back
*Bunch
against TE only side set or tight wing– play like
FS -- key TE and fit the C gap. Also look to fit
inside vs Bunch Triangle formation.
Free Safety
Alignment –8-10 yards deep over C/G gap
to 2/3 receiver side
If 2/3 rec. side is to boundary go to wide
side (based on game plan)
Reads: Key OG to 2/3 rec. side (high
hat/low hat for run/pass read)
Pass Read
Cover 4 – Robber technique vs 2 backs in the
backfield
Robber technique vs trips Rob #3
Read OG/uncovered lineman run /pass; if pass:
key the route of #2 rec.
If #2 goes vertical – F/S takes him
If #2 goes to flat – F/S looks to #1 – rob
curl/get under post
If #2 drags across – follow and cover the drag
until LB confronts him; look for something
coming back; then sink to low hole
Free Safety
Cover 2 – One back
Play the High Hole. Sink until pressured to the
deep hole –then key the route of # 2 or #3 ;
range as deep as both #2 WR’s
