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.

Over-coaching your athletes might be the biggest problem coaches like us can run into.

You love the game. You’re not lazy. You’re actively engaged at your practice. And you see the details.

But that doesn’t mean constantly pointing them out to your players is the right way to get things done. In fact, it may slow the athlete down in their development.

Adding more movement to your defensive line can cause havoc for the offensive blocking schemes. And it doesn’t take as much as you might think.

Executing twist stunts is simple and involves teaching two skills: the Penetrator, and the Looper. Once your players know these two pieces of defensive line technique, they can execute all but the most exotic stunts.

Want to learn to use these stunts in your defense? They’re taught inside our 4-2-5 Defense System. You can get an introduction to the 4-2-5 Defense with my exclusive video series, Foundations of The 4-2-5 Defense System at http://425defense.com/podcast.

The Outside Veer continues to expand on your Option package. This play hits one man wider than the Inside Veer we talked about in the Quick Clinic on the Inside Veer Option.

The Outside Veer is great to use when you need to expand your attack and option a wider defender. It is particularly good with a 7-technique Defensive End in the 4-4 or 4-2-5 Defense.

One of my primary sources in putting this episode together was the Offensive Football Strategies book, a collection of older football coaching articles published by the AFCA.

Tackling circuits are a great way to get lots of reps on the single most important aspect of defensive football. And do it in a short time.

When you put together a circuit, it's important that you are trying to address only one significant problem with each drill. That will keep your practice moving along efficiently.

This is a great way to use your entire coaching staff, so that your players get to work with everyone. 

In this episode I also told you about a special gift for JDFB Quick Clinic listeners, my Foundations of the 4-2-5 Defense video series. You can get access now at http://425defense.com/podcast.

Taking it way back to the 1960's and the foundations of the Split Back Veer option offense. This is the original Triple Option run game.

And it still works today. Probably more so than ever. In different versions and variations, but we're going back to the beginning.

Split Back Veer is the Triple Option reading the first man over the Tackle. 

One of the resources I used in putting this together, and still one of my favorites, is the AFCA's Offensive Football Strategies manual. 

In this episode I also mentioned a special gift for JDFB Quick Clinic listeners, my Foundations of the 4-2-5 Defense video series. Visit http://425defense.com/podcast to get access now.

The only guy closer to the football than the Center, is the Odd Front Nose Guard. In your 33 Stack Defense or 3-4 Defense, the play of this guy is critical.

You can play him in two different ways. Either use a big, strong 2-Gap Nose Guard, or get your guy moving using slant calls. 

I mentioned an article from JoeDanielFootball.com on 3 ways to slant, you can check that article out here.

What’s the worst feeling in football? Making a couple of huge run stops on the goal line. Only to give up that touchdown pass to a wide open receiver in the end zone.

Down on the goal line we put a heavy focus on stopping the run. But the pass is going to be an option for the offense, too.

Today on Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic, I’ll talk about how to prepare your coverage to make the stop on the goal line - without sacrificing your run defense.

There’s not a tougher situation in defensive coaching than defending the goal line. After all, you wouldn’t be in this situation if your team was playing great.

But the Goal Line Stand can be a huge momentum swing for your defense. And you entire team. Not to mention, the opponent.

In today’s episode of The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic, we’ll talk about lining up in your 6-3 or 5-4 Defense to shut down the run on the goal line.
