In other words, running this type of Defense will give you a numbers advantage to every offense. Then he moves onto talk about it being a 3-3 or 3-4 defense. He reveals the Xs and Os with the names of the positions and emphasizes that your nose guard has to be a beast. The way this defense mutates is that most of your players should be interchangeable. For example, a safety could step up as the linebacker or corner to cover for a blitz and vice versa. Having this interchangeability is key for running the mutating defense. He also reveals the rules, responsibilities, and descriptions of how these players should be. Then, he covers the base rules and blitzing strategies for the defensive line.
