Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic

The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic is short, informative podcasts for American Football Coaches. I record them in the car on the way to practice, so you're not here for the audio quality. And if you're not a football coach, you probably won't like the show. Just a warning. If you are a coach... you're going to get some great ideas.

In a previous JDFB Quick Clinic, we talked about running Cover 2. Great coverage, but not used a whole lot today.

When you do see it, you need to know the weaknesses. Where should you attack Cover 2?

In this episode I mentioned the Umbrella. I said I'd link to something on it, but I lied because right now I don't have anything outside of JDFB Insiders on the Umbrella. I'll work on that.

My name was brought up in a thread on Coach Huey. I responded, but really didn't want to get into it too much. Not my thing.

However, I did think the topic was worth addressing. At least, it gives me a good topic for the Quick Clinic.

You don't see a lot of Cover 2 anymore. But some coaches swear by it.

The coverage was the primary coverage behind the original Miami 4-3 Defense with Jimmy Johnson in the 1980's. 

That means it's worth taking a look at (they were really good).

Receivers don't always understand how important it is to run perfect routes. They're used to the back yard football routes (where the QB doesn't have any pressure). 

Some coaches teach yard depth. Others coach steps. Here's how we coach receivers to run precise routes.
