Every young coach will be asked what defense the run: 4-3, 3-4, 4-2-5, 3-3-5, 3-5-3, or 52-monster? Man-blitz or Zone blitz? Box or Spill? These coaches will have a defense of the week, coverage of the week, and blitz of the week. They will tell people that they play the under front, the over front, the double eagle front and the okie front. Cover 2, cover 3, cover 4, cover 6, cover 8 and man free. Their kids will have no chance to play fast because the assignments are always changing, and more time was spent installing than practicing.
