    (I'm sure most of you do though) there is a nice article on wikipedia.

    (I love actual football talk)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_football_strategy
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_football_defensive_schemes

    And here's an interesting link on zone blitzes explaining zone blitzes.

    Decent article, though it should mention the Tampa 2 requires much more coverage by the linebacking unit in general with the outside backers often pinching inside to help defend the short zones, and thus requires far more athletic linebackers to be effective (especially at the edges). Not many teams have used it effectively, besides Tampa, because not many teams have a Derrick Brooks to help out underneath.

    this is the kind of stuff that I have beeen advocating to be put on a separate thread or sticky as reference material.

    I don't know if that will ever happen though.

    Patriots-80, I wish there were more posters like you left. Good find! Educating read.


    Now let's all go back to trading agents home phone numbers and license plates.

    Thanks Dryheat for the link. I didn't have that one.

    Wouldn't it be great PatsNut if a mod would create a sticky post (even if its tucked away in the draft forum) that had a bunch of educational references links?

    Heres some more stuff.

    Gap techniques. I'm fairly certain the Pats letter their holes like this. A gap and so forth. I know I've heard BB dicuss the 3 technique or 0 techinque in the past when talking about a D line player.

    Pretty informative site. Lots to read.

    Bob Davie had some real good stuff for free, but now its all ESPN Insider pay material. Its only $40 or so bucks for the magazine and you get access to his archives.
