What we start with is Cover 3 and the way that I drew this up here is very simple, very basic, what we’ve done is we’ve taken this this boundary safety here, ok, and we’ve rolled him already in the center field here. Ok, and the free safety is already pre spun, he’s already down. Ok, and typically where we like to align him in a true Cover 3 is on the inside shade at #2, right here ok. His responsibility is curl 2 flat, so he’s the curl 2 flat player. We’re going to look to try to collision #2 if he goes vertical, um he’s never going to compromise and work back inside if if 2 works inside of him, ok. His responsibility here is curl first and then he’s going to the flat second. Um, the word that we label these things, and we just kinda started doing this a little differently based on our personnel this past spring, is these 2 guys here are strong safety and our weak side linebacker. We said in the spring that our strong safety is going to go to the split end side so he’s going to go away from the tight end and we took our will linebacker and made him go to the tight end. So that’s, right now that’s what we’re doing in regards to their alignments. Now that strong safety is still, you know he’s a defensive back tight, but we want to take our linebacker and put him to the tight end side and worked out pretty well for us this last spring with what we’re doing. Um, so this is the basics, the fundamentals I’m sure everyone does a variation of Cover 3.
