the zone and player-player!
Often, the offense will utilize picks (blocking the defender of the offensive player with the ball with another offensive player) against whoever is guarding the ball or even away from the ball. Often, the two defenders have to switch who they're guarding to keep the person with the ball from driving. When you switch, the offense often gets mis-matches (ie a quick, small offensive player guarded by a slow big player or vice versa, a big, strong player down low guarded by a short player). There is often a lot of confusion when multiple picks are used. Finally, and possibly the biggest factor is that it's exhausting. Rather than staying in one general region (like in a zone) you have to run all over the court to stay with your man.
= Football Defensive Plays = Our football defensive plays are designed to dominate an offense, with heavy pressure and coverage defensive schemes. After starting for 13 years against the best dynasties of all times (Washington 87', San Francisco 89', Dallas and Buffalo of the 90's, of all-times (Montana/Rice, Elway/Smith, Favre/Freeman, Kelly/Reed and Aikman/Irvin), Tyrone Braxton knows what it takes to STOP and beat an opposing offense. . Our plays are color-coded, easy to follow and highlight the key points of attack. We also have tips for defensive backs, EG:. * Stay loose and relaxed. Your arms should be dangling * Stay low and balanced; keep your center of gravity directly above your toes. * Practice back pedaling (drills) * Keep good footing and make crisp, clean breaks when QB releases the ball. * Be honest and don't guess - there is a big difference between guessing and anticipating. Sometimes over pursuit can be worse than under pursuit. Corner back is a busy position. Stay with the receiver and don't look back at what the quarterback is doing while in coverage. You don't have time and you will lose your footing, balance and focus. http://www.tyronebraxton.com/football_defensive_plays.html
