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.

What should the Press Box Coach be looking for? How can you help the Offensive Coordinator make better play calls?

The Press Box Coach in a football game can have a big impact. But it’s not an easy job.

A good press box coach has to know the offense. He needs to be able to communicate what adjustments you’re seeing from the defense. What wasn’t in the game plan?

More important, a good press box coach must stay calm and deliver exactly what the play caller has asked for. It’s on the play caller to communicate that.

Listen to this episode of the JDFB Quick Clinic to find out what jobs a good press box coach will perform.

We lost our Stud Free Safety. Is it time to change the Defensive Scheme?

You’ve just installed your defensive scheme. Last year it was a new staff, new scheme, all new. And one player really made things work. Now he’s gone.

Do you change the scheme? It’s a pretty common question. One we should all ask. Ultimately, you do fit the scheme to the players. But you do not change the scheme for the players.

We’re talking about whether to switch from a 1-high safety 4-2-5 Defense to a 2-high safety, Quarters Coverage Miami 4-3 Defense. Or to split field coverage in the 4-2-5 Defense. All on this episode of the Quick Clinic.

How should you adjust your 33 Stack against Spread Offenses? When is it time to ‘Break the Stack’?

 

The 33 Stack Defense gives you a ton of flexibility. Can you flex too much, though?

When it’s time to adjust the 33 stack against spread formations, how do you account for those outside safeties getting taken out of the box? Some coaches ‘break the stack’ by sliding the Linebackers. Other coaches never, ever want to break the stack.

Listen to this episode of the JDFB Quick Clinic to hear my thoughts on adjusting your 33 Stack against spread offensive attacks.

You’ve got to start right to finish right. What’s the ‘right’ way to start your practices and games?

We’ve come a long way in pre-practice stretching and pre-game warm ups. There’s still a lot of discussion about the right way to do it.

In this episode of The Joe Daniel Football Quick Clinic, I’ll talk about how you can get your team ready to have a great practice or start the game on a high note.
