Man to man defense

Don’t let this coverage scare you.

In this episode of the Talking Football with Coach McKie Podcast, I talk about how you can make teams pay for going Cover 0 and Cover 1 against you. Most Spread teams struggle when teams get in their face and go Cover 0 and/or Cover 1. Why?

Because of the mindset. You have to get excited when teams go Cover 0 and/or Cover 1. You must instill that mindset into your players. And you must have a list of plays you go to when you see man. It’s that easy.

What plays should you use? Crossing routes and pick routes. What kind of crossing routes? Mesh and shallow cross. Those two routes are a must if you want to defeat man coverage.

Then you must use motion. Quick motion with the wide receiver and fast motion with the running back. Get the defense to move with you. If they don’t then you have the advantage.

Last, you must use formations. I love Stack and Bunch formations. Gets the defense confused and usually allows one of your guys to come free.

Top 5 High School Football DVD

Coach Is Pissed Because He Bought Another Crappy DVD.

We football coaches love to learn. We buy all of the best football coaching books, the best Football Coaching DVDs, and attend the best football clinics. But sometimes we get confused. We see a great book, a fancy Football Coaching DVD cover, or a popular clinic and we want to get it. But the thing that holds us back is the fact that we don’t have that much money.

What happens if we spend 60 dollars and that highly rated Football Coaching DVD sucks? What if that presenter has a soft voice and covers the basics of a popular concept you wanted to get more knowledge in?

You’ll be out of 60 dollars and pissed the hell off.

But have no fear coaches. I’ve plucked down my wife’s hard earn dollars and I’m going to give you my Best Football Coaching DVDs.

Football Coaching DVDs Learn The Air Raid Offense

Learn From The Masters of the Air Raid Offense

If you want to learn the Ins and Outs of the Air Raid system, and don’t have 1,000 dollars to buy it directly from Hal Mumme, then this is the Football Coaching DVD for you. The coaches in this series are the ones who created the Air Raid: Hal Mumme, Mike Leach, Chris Hatch, and Neal Brown.
You will learn the Ins and Outs of the Air Raid from the Godfather himself - Hal Mumme. Coach Mumme will walk you through the drills that make the Air Raid successful: Noose & Settle, Pat & Go, Quick Game Drills, and One-on-One drills. He then will walk you through his run game and then talk to you about receiver play within the Air Raid System.
Next, you will learn from the Pirate Himself - Mike Leach. Coach Leach walks you through the Mesh route - one of the greatest routes of all time - and how to practice the Routes on Air drill. This one drill will help you increase your passing yards and completion rate by 50 percent.
Finally, you will learn everything from Chris Hatcher - head coach at Samford University - who played for Hal Mumme and Mike Leach at Valdosta State. He will walk you through the major Air Raid Routes - Shallow Cross, Mesh, Y-Stick, Y-Corner, Y-Cross, and Y-Sail. He will then walk you through the drills that make the Air Raid successful.
There are more DVDs in the collection. This is a must have if you want to learn everything you need to know about the Air Raid offense. This DVD collection can be your entire passing game.
Football Coaching DVDs Score Points Using the Inside Zone Concept

Learn How To Kill Opponents Only Running Inside Zone

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, we’ve got too many running concepts in this offense? I wish we could simplify it and only run Inside Zone.”
You have?
Great news. Now you can simplify your run game to the Inside Zone by watching this Football Coaching DVD by Coach Craig Buzea. Coach Craig Buzea - who in 7 seasons as HC has produced a 65-18 record - tells you everything you need to know about the Inside Zone,  and how to run it with YOUR guys. That means this will work for you even if you don’t have the 6’4 350-pound offensive linemen.
The best thing about Coach Buzea’s Football Coaching DVD is the Inside Zone Tags - 14 of them - and how he pairs his play-action and vertical passing game with his Inside Zone.
Football Coaching DVDs Air Raid Offense DVD

One of the best Air Raid Offensive DVDs

Okay, so you don’t want the Football Coaching DVD of Complete Air Raid Offense. I understand. Then I would strongly advise you to get the Chris Hatcher portion. THIS is the Football Coaching DVD that you can’t live without if you want to learn the Air Raid Offense.
This is the purest Air Raid Football DVD you can find on the market. Everyone else is running their version of what they think the Air Raid Offense is. Not Christ Hatcher. He is running the offense that Hal Mumme and Mike Leach developed in a small college town in Iowa.
Football Coaching DVDs Fly Football DVD

Beat Your Opponents To The Outside With This Football DVD

Look, I understand if you want to run the Spread Offense but are afraid to throw the ball. Sometimes you won’t have a quarterback who can throw the ball. That’s fine. That doesn’t mean you can’t run the Spread Offense.
This Football Coaching DVD by Coach Kevin Swartwood walks you through the Fly - aka Jet Sweep - offense. It is amazing.
Story time: My starting quarterback got hurt. So I had to play my backup quarterback for next week’s game. Did I mention that the back-up was a Wide Reciever? No? Well, he was.
There was no way I was going to throw the ball 40 times a game with a Wide Receiver at quarterback. So I bought this DVD pack and installed the Jet Sweep like Coach Kevin Swartwood teaches it.
The Results? 230 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. Not bad for 4 days worth of practice.

Football Coaching DVDs Air Raid DNA Football DVD

Learn How To Score Points Using The Air Raid at the High School Level with this Football DVD

This is a Football Coaching DVD that is found on Coach Tube and it is done by Slade Singleton. Most of you will know Coach Singleton as the man who was on my Air Raid Live Clinic. This Video Course is freaking amazing. Coach Singleton goes over how he runs his record-breaking offense and how he installs and teaches the offense. My favorite part about the Video Course is his breakdown of the Quarterback Sweep RPO. I’m totally stealing it for next year.
