The Ultimate Guide to NFL Defense

"Defensive football is every bit as exciting and interesting as offensive football. Some of the greatest (and most eccentric) minds to walk an NFL sideline got their start as defensive innovators. Greasy Neale, Tom Landry, Bum Phillips, Buddy Ryan, Bill Parcells, George Allen, Don Shula, Tony Dungy, Bill Belichick, Dick LeBeau, among many, many others cut their teeth as defensive coaches.

If you've ever been confused about the real differences between a 4-3 and 3-4 front, wondered what a three-technique tackle was, wondered why the 46 defense has become a rarely used historical relic or just want to learn a little more about defensive football, read on. While we'll liberally sprinkle some IDP applications in sidebars throughout, the primary focus of the guide will be to bring some love for defensive football to all fans of the game."

The Ultimate Guide to NFL Defense

==========================================

Although it is from last year, this article is a great outline of defensive techniques in the NFL today, and the history that led to them. I figured there would be some people here interested in such an elaborate breakdown.

Since the article is from footballguys, I'll take this moment to promote their fantasy football services. I've used them for several years and they're great. If you are serious about fantasy football (i.e.: play for money), you should consider getting a subscription.

Damn, that was long....football has been perfect to science. I don't know if you can write such a long article on any other sport.
