How NFL Defenses Fell So Far Behind Modern Offenses
Steven Ruiz at For The Win has put together an excellent series of articles looking at how NFL defenses tried to copy the Seattle Seahawks' Super Bowl-winning scheme ... and why most of them failed miserably. Part 1 (linked below) covers just what offenses have done to give defenses so much trouble. Part 2 looks at pass coverage schemes that should become more common in the near future, while Part 3 examines defensive line techniques. Finally, Part 4 discusses the ideal way to build a defensive roster in the modern NFL.
