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?

Is the guard or the tackle on the outside of the offensive line?

I have a question...... :clearsthroat:.........

Why do we have champ Bailey, and pay him what he gets when we have no defensive line?

:listens intently:

0,1,2,3,4,5 Techniques

0 Technique= head to head with the Center (responsible for both A gaps)
1 Technique= Lined up in the middle of the a gap (between center and guard)
2 Technique= Defensive lineman head to head with the Guard
3 Technique= middle of B gap (between guard and tackle)
4 Technique= Head to head with the offensive tackle
5 Technique= Outside shoulder of the Offensive tackle

the ones I put in bold are the Techniques that can be used in a 3-4 scheme.... just depends on the type of 3-4


Here is what West had to say... figured it would be easier to merge it to 1 post...

"6 would be inside shoulder of the TE (or inside eye)

7 would be head up the TE

8 would be outside eye of the TE

9 would be a LB who played in a space outside of the end man on the line in a twins look (doesn't matter if its a TE or not). The LB would walk out and split the inside receiver and the end man on the line"

What are the other 3?

Well, it all depends on if there's a tight end or not.

6 would be inside shoulder of the TE (or inside eye)

7 would be head up the TE

8 would be outside eye of the TE

9 would be a LB who played in a space outside of the end man on the line in a twins look (doesn't matter if its a TE or not). The LB would walk out and split the inside receiver and the end man on the line.

I was really only for the defensive line, But Im pretty sure a 6 technique is head to head with the TE and 7 technique you are lined up on the outside shoulder of the TE.... have no idea what the 9th one is though.

I listed 6-9 in the post above yours.

Its fine. I didn't know you intentionally listed the only one's that include the defensive line. BUT the 6-7-8 techs can double as a defensive line player as well as a linebacker. That is where the term "hybrid" players comes from. A player that is enable to play both linebacker and end in the 3-4 scheme.

In college football when kicking a field goal, and the center snaps the ball to the place kick holder, shouldn't the play be called dead because the holder's knee is on the ground?

:confused:

That actually came up this past year when a Colorado defender intercepted a fake field goal against Nebraska. It is dead if the place holder tries to advance the ball while still with a knee down
