The base 43 front alignment has been the foundation of Al Fracassa's Brother Rice vaunted defensive attack for years. Now you can learn all the critical keys for implementing a 4-3 defense into your defensive attack. Brother Rice assistants Larry Zimmerman and Jamie Boerkel share insights into what it takes to build a dominating 43 defense and how to teach key strategies to make it effective. You'll get detailed information on game-tested 4-3 defense techniques such as defensive-end play in the 4-3, keeping tight ends from sealing the Mike linebacker, engaging the tight end as he comes off the line, keys for developing \defensive radar\" when the offensive front is in a two-point stance, stopping the quarterback trap and more. As a bonus, you'll also get inside information on getting nine players in the box in Match 3 Cover to stop an opponent's running attack. Another version of the 4-3 defense shown is the Bear Defense, which works well in the red zone. By watching game footage, you'll witness the Bear Defense in action and learn the best ways to make it successful. You'll also get in-depth knowledge on defensive backs, coverages, the Cover-2 Shell (a zone with the safeties over the top), Cover-3, Cover-4 and more! 43 minutes. 2007. DVD.
