  1. Will there be QB sneak/FB dive defense in the future? 🙂

    • Sorry I just seen this, but Jiggs is correct about nickle 335 if you decide to use the bengals book with this… and thank you Jiggs for answering that, i also have sneak d from 46 normal and 43 over ill add that soon for you.. thanks for pointing it out

  2. Michael, for FB dive, use nickle 335 normal, 2 man under… the blitzing LB comes in clean if you guess which side he’s running it to… flipping it works fine too, as needed (and nobody moves)

  4. what are you recommending for consistent run D?… i know on the destruction guide you mentioned the A-gaps were consistent run stoppers… but lately im getting gashed with tosses… and counters left from under center vs. that 46 normal setup where you bring the left of screen lb wide.

  5. Jiggs for tosses I always go to the 5-2 Fire Zone 2 and base align,and edge rush and user the mlb to clean up any inside runs. Works very well. Thats just from my personal experience.

    • 52 in general defends run very well but if you try to run that too much vs high level players your getting gashed with passes… Including the blitzes that are going around from it..

      • You are right thats why I only use it when someone is abusing the toss. Normally they come out in the same formation so when they run it so I know when to call it. BTW when will you be dropping that mini quarters scheme?

      • Yeah, I was referring to sets from this guide. … Base 46 still does a good job vs. the run, but I was wondering if you’ve found any adjustments that help even more.

  6. On the 46 Normal A Gap, I’m finding better success just nudging the MLB to the right a step, usering the FS…

  7. Relli, what are you using for run defense from this guide? Or from the Destruction guide?

    • Depends, are you having trouble with gun type runs or undercenter?

      • I use 46 normal A-gap setup, and that does a decent job. Unfortunately, my connected franchise league cries “illegal nano!!!” whenever anyone gets A-gap sacks on passes (of course, lobs, drags and FB dive spam is perfectly OK)… Anyhow, tosses from under center and gun inside zone stuff continues to be tough to contain. That is, doing so without completely compromising coverage behind it.
