I Need Defensive Advice Please :-)

Hey guys, my defense continues to get burned by thesew sideline or not far from sideline passes.  You know the type, the opposing quarterback drops back and quickly fires to his far right or far left.

I do not use zone coverage, most of my defense is man to man and I usually have a good defense except against these types of plays.

What happens is they always get my defender on single coverage and then blow by him or simply get ahead of him. 

What can I try to

a) double cover
b) not allow them to get open

Thanks for any help you can provide and if it is possible can anyone send me a single defensive playt to try/test?

Cheers!

Chris

You can try a few different things to combat this. You can make a skinny zone along both sidelines, you can move the defender right up on the line and have him jam the receiver at the line, you can back him up so he doesn't get blown by or you can have him run to an area where the pass is likely to go and give him a receive command. All will help combat those sideline passes.

Live coaching in a league, or even better coaching with a good defensive coach can really shift your game into high gear.
