Not Too Late For Your Defensive Pressure Package

By FirstDown PlayBook on Oct 2, 2021

As most football programs near the midpoint of this season, the good defenses have most of the wrinkles ironed out. One of the areas that are still being tweaked week to week though are the defensive pressure packages.

There are several reasons for this. One of the biggest reasons is that your pressure package is often dictated by what your opponent does. The formations that they use will often open up opportunities for certain dogs and blitzes. Other times an offense may use certain formations that make it very hard to get home or be sound against.

The protections that your opponent uses is also a factor. Are they predominately a 5, 6 or 7man protection offense? Which way does the center turn in protection? Where are their hots and sights? There is so much that goes into this part of the game plan.

This is why once you break all of this down, it should not be hard to get to your defensive pressure packages. FirstDown PlayBook has thought of all of this and we make it easy for you to get to tons of defensive pressure help all drawn up bu NFL coaches.

It’s how you find these pressures that is unique too. As you can see by the pic, there are several ways to get to these pressures. Oh yeah, every one of these man pressures and zone dogs are drawn up vs multiple offensive formations. They also have defensive rules and coaching points.
