This is just the kind of forum a guy like me needs, someplace I can learn more about the technical aspects of the game, strategy, etc.

I really hope this forum doesn't get overrun with morons who have the football IQ of a slug.

unlike some multiple poster in this thread..

OK. hard to admit, because I've been a huge fan for a long time, but.....
Can someone explain the whole 1,2 or 3 gap technique thing as it pertains to the 3/4 vs. the 4/3 defense.
I've figured out that it's to do with gap "responsibilities", and that a "gap" is obviously the space between opposing O-linemen that a back might run through.
but when someone starts talking about a DT playing a 3 gap technique I'm lost. How the hell can one guy cover all that real-estate?

Your right. It's about responsibilities. I'll try and explain this the best I can. It'd be a hell of a lot easier to explain on a dry erase board.

Generally, the NT, in the 3-4, has 2 gap responsibilites, gap A, which is 2 gaps. (the gaps beside the center). The linebackers are responsible for A and B. The linebacker on the backside of the slanting nose (if the nose slants) is responsible for the A gap and the linebacker on the same side of the slanting nose is responsible for the B gap because the nose is slanting into that A gap. And the end is responsible for C-D gaps.

Its really difficult to explain while typing. If we were in person, it'd be a lot more clear.

Mainly because this game is not played too much here :tsk:

So, don't be ashamed to admit that... It's great to learn more from people who knows more than us.

I want to thank you all in advance for all the things I'm going to learn here
