Best defense against the Spread Offense (Florida type)



My bet is:

A 3-3-5 scheme. 3 DLs, 3 LBs and 5 DBs (3 corners + 2 safeties ) playing man to man coverage.

3 corners lock the best three WRs. The safeties can cover or blitz. The line and LBs pressure the line.


Lets discuss.....

consistently putting Tebow arse in the dirt is the best defense against a Florida offense.

If you do that you will get beat by the counter and draw plays. 4-2-5 could work. With a team like UF you have to respect the run or their front 5 will open some big holes.

I meant a Florida type spread offense in general.
Not Florida in particular.

4-2-5 sounds like the best you have to try to get to Tebow.

Talent is the only way and not many teams have the speed to do it.

One team that's had recent success against UF is Auburn. The Tigers held Florida to 17 points in both their 2006 and 2007 games. I understand the 2009 Gators are a different team, but nevertheless, the 2006-2007 Gators were Meyer-coached teams, and the 2007 team was led by Tebow. Might be worth watching tapes to see what Auburn did in those two games.

In the past, John Chavis has run a scheme with a dime package of six defensive backs, a single
linebacker, and 4 down linemen.

2007 Florida put up 24 and Tebow and crew moved the ball with ease during parts of that game.

re: Best defense against the Spread Offense (Florida type)


I think you have to go a little old school and apply option principles to stop the Meyer spread. I would our base defense since we have Coleman at LB, and use a Cover 2 so you have your corners squatted to provide outside containment. We always get burned to the outside because we use our slow ends to provide containment. Our DEs need to collapse in to help clog the middle and have our LBs scrape hard and plant Tebow everytime they see him. I honestly think we have to stop their run, and force Tebow to pass. Not that he can't but it increases the opportunity for turnovers (or long TD passes if we lock a safety on their best receiver).

The best defense against the spread is a good running game on offense. Keep the ball and limit the amt of time the other team is on the field.

You're absolutely right! It worked great in 2007.
