I measure defense by no points on the board. I understand that teams kick field goals. But they have to drive to get into position to kick a field goal. Never give in to a situation. Try to make your guys play harder when they meet adverse situations and sudden changes. Defense wins championships. Offense wins games. Make sure you build your defense first. We run the "pursuit drill" to improve our defensive team. The defensive coach gets in the middle of the field, calls the defense, and then watches his team react.
I asked him what he thought was the most important thing about a defensive player. He said vision. A lot of people talk about a linebacker having a nose for the ball. He doesn't have a nose for the ballhe has great vision. I got to thinking about it. I had never been around a great defensive player who didn't have good vision. An intangible that a player may have can allow him to be productive if he is strong enough at being dependable. We tell our guys that there is no place for excuses. George Washington Carver made the statement that 99 percent of the failures come from people who have learned the habit of making excuses.
We go half line for 10 minutes. We have two quarterbacks running the drills. The most important thing is coaching the scout team. During the season we work twice a week on the option, going half line. On Tuesday and Wednesday we have the pads on, so we go 10 minutes per day on half-line option drills. We work very little on the double and speed options. We run the belly option. Basically, it is a quarterback sweep play. We pull the guard and log or hook the end. We can run the play to the strong or weak side.
