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.

The Free Safety is a critical piece of your defense if you’re running a 1-high coverage. Cover 1 or Cover 3, this is the leader of your secondary. And a huge part of your run fits.

Listen to this episode to figure out which one of your athletes is the right fit for this position on your defense.

Time to get back into the film room. Now that we’re studying our film using Video Analysis Software like Hudl, instead of trading DVDs, you have a lot of information to look at.

Just don’t waste your time studying the wrong things. Or slow down your football players by giving them too much information.

Today’s Quick Clinic looks at breaking down your opponent’s top formations. What can you learn from them as a defensive play caller? What information should you give your players?

I also told you about my exclusive 4-2-5 Defense Video Series that you can get access to right now, at no charge. Visit http://425defense.com/podcast to get started.

Just a little walk down memory lane, back to the days of DVDs and DVD burners during the 2000’s.

The quality was definitely improved from the VHS exchange tapes. But DVDs came with their very own unique challenges.

Check out the first episode in this series, on the VHS days, right here: http://joedanielfootball.com/qc53/.

The Trap Play is one of the oldest plays in football. It’s a great play to use in any 2-back offense.

In the Inside Trap you’re going to be kicking out a Defensive Tackle most of the time. Check out this video for more on running the Trap Play: https://youtu.be/Anznn8oqm9I

The Trap is a great compliment to your outside running game. It’s a way to control linebackers. And one we use in the Pistol Power Offense System.

Prowling is using pre-snap movement by your Linebackers to cause some confusion for the Offensive Line. It was really popular in the 2000’s with the Georgia Military College 3-5-3 Defense.

There are some basic rules for prowling that your linebackers need to know. And don’t over-use it. Your linebackers will be worn out by the end of the 1st Quarter.

We still teach prowling in the 33 Stack Defensive System, available as part of a JDFB Insiders subscription.

I’ve been the video guy for most of my career in coaching. I’m into technology and it’s always appealed to me.

But there was a time when I did not get to take the laptop home and go to work. Back in my first few years of coaching, we were still doing everything on VHS Tapes.

You won’t learn anything from this episode of JDFB Quick Clinic. It’s more of a nostalgia thing. If you never lived through the VHS tape exchange, you might not get it.

But VHS was an important part of football coaching, for a long time. So in this episode, I’ll share some of my memories with them.

And their horrible, horrible quality.

Sprint Out Passing is a great way to change the launch point for your Quarterback. It adds another dimension to your offense, and it also really helps out a struggling offensive line.

Any team with an athletic QB can benefit from sprint game. But you’ve got to get the Quarterback outside for it to be successful.

In this episode of JDFB Quick Clinic, we look at how to protect your Sprint Out Quarterback so that he can threaten the edge.

Before you decide how deep the running back should be aligned in your offense, you have to understand the purpose of depth. It’s all about timing.

Which means your running back depth will be determined by a number of factors.

What offense do you run? How fast does your blocking take to develop? How quick is your running back?

Lots to think about, and that’s good. There’s infinite opportunity to tweak and adjust your running back’s depth and timing steps to get it just right. And you’ll probably need to do different things for different backs.

In this podcast I mentioned my interview with Coach Stan Zweifel, and you can listen to that episode here.

I don’t believe in teaching my players the right way to lose a play. So I don’t teach my guys to screw their shoulder into the ground when they’re getting the snot kicked out of them on a double team.

That doesn’t make my way right or wrong, but it’s important to understand. You defeat a double team by defeating one man, not two. And if you’re starting on our Defensive Line, you better be able to defeat one man more times than not.

Taking on double teams should be a point of pride for any Defensive Lineman. In today’s Quick Clinic, I’ll talk about how to make it happen.

In this episode I mentioned Rex Ryan’s book. It has a fantastic chapter on Defensive Line play that is worth every penny, no matter what you run: Coaching Football’s 46 Defense.

There’s also my Defensive Line Key Read Drill video. You can get access to the full video series here. (Watch the first video on that page, the sign-up will come up at the end)

This the third Quick Clinic on the different styles of old school option attack. In previous Quick Clinics, I’ve talked about the Inside Veer and Outside Veer as well.

The Midline Option might be my favorite football play. Though we’ve run it at times, and with some success, it never became a staple play.

Someday, I still think that it will. I absolutely love this football play. Listen to this episode of The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic to find out why!
