Cover: developing cornerbacks to play multiple coverage techniques
Developing Cornerbacks to Play Multiple Coverage Techniques

with Aaron Henry,
Rutgers University Assistant Coach/Defensive Backs;
Secondary Graduate assistant at Arkansas;
played at Wisconsin for Chris Ash (3x Rose Bowl, 2x All-Big Ten)

The spread offense presents problems to defenses with its tempo and multiple formations. However, now the defense can fight back by appearing to play press coverage before every snap, confusing the quarterback and making him throw into coverage with the bait and bail technique or the cover 2 hinge technique. Rutgers defensive back coach Aaron Henry teaches you these techniques and more in this video.

Press Technique

Train your cornerbacks to dictate angles for the wide receiver to take. Coach Henry explains the press technique that is specific to Rutgers and how it differs from the way press is taught by most other coaches. Using simple, everyday drills, he shows you his teaching progression for the press technique that begins with the proper alignment and stance, and focuses on eye progression and footwork for the corner

Coach Henry believes in pressing with the feet by staying in front of the receiver as long as possible before using a kick step to go with any vertical release. In his footwork progression, Henry covers the:

  • Mirror step
  • Kick step
  • Switchback
  • Off hand jam

After teaching footwork, Henry shows how to coach the corner in playing the route by the receiver. Using the Fly-by and Stutter drills, you will see how to coach the corner to be in phase with the receiver and lean and locate the ball. When out-of-phase, the corner is taught to go chest to chest and play through the receiver to the ball. Coach Henry then shows how the hands are used as a bonus in press coverage, and explains how focusing on the hands too much is a major flaw in many cornerbacks that play press coverage.

The Finish

Coach Henry stresses that defensive backs must be able to make plays. He describes the techniques for the defensive back to use whether he is in phase or out of phase with the receiver. Using practice footage, Coach Henry shows how the finish should be coached against a fade route and against short and intermediate routes. You'll see the Hook & Swat drill that is used at Rutgers to knock the ball loose from the receiver while securing the tackle with the off hand. Using Coach Henry's techniques and drill progression, you will be able to teach your players to make plays and breakup passes no matter if they are in perfect position or not.

Bait and Bail Technique

Coach Henry concludes the video by showing you how the corner can appear to press, but in reality is dropping into zone coverage. See how the bait and bail techniques should be used to counter offenses that use deep routes to attack press coverage. Also, an explanation of the catch technique is included. The catch technique is typically used in the red zone where the defensive back must not allow a receiver to catch the ball in front of him.

Cornerback play is essential in the modern game. Coach Henry's coaching points and drill progression will enable coaches to teach their cornerbacks to dominate the competition.

Cover: kevin gilbride's drills and skills for the passing game 3-pack
Kevin Gilbride's Drills and Skills for the Passing Game 3-Pack
FD-04875A: with Kevin Gilbride,
former NFL coach and offensive coordinator for six NFL teams - spent over 20 years in the league;
earned two Super Bowl rings as the Offensive Coordinator for the NY Giants

To develop the complete player, you must be able to teach the complete technique. Long time NFL quarterback coach, Kevin Gilbride, does just that in this comprehensive look at the quarterback position.

Coach Gilbride takes you through various fundamentals that he has used to help quarterbacks such as Eli Manning and Warren Moon. His focus is on teaching the four most important considerations for building a successful quarterback: judgment, accuracy, vision and arm strength. He not only offers instruction for developing players' physical qualities, but also the mental aspects of the game.

Building the "Ultimate Throwing Machine"

Coach Gilbride demonstrates his vast experience and knowledge in coaching up quarterbacks as he dissects every aspect of the QB position, starting with the proper stance and grip of the ball. Several key throwing mechanics are covered, as well as proper footwork and how to throw from the ground up to maximize power.

Drop Back Techniques

Each type of drop back is covered, including the 3-, 5- and 7-step drop, as well as how to throw on the move either rolling out or moving within the pocket.

You'll learn how to train your quarterbacks to:

  • find throwing windows
  • make reads
  • tie in footwork with route depth to improve throwing accuracy
  • adjust their weight distribution to create the optimal release

Mental Side of the Quarterback

Successful quarterbacks understand the mental aspect of the game just as much as the physical. Coach Gilbride lists the order of thoughts a quarterback should use every time he approaches the line of scrimmage. The quarterback must recognize the time, the front and the coverage before the snap. Following the snap, the quarterback will learn how to look off the coverage before taking their eyes to their primary key.

Coaches and players at any level will benefit from the experience and teaching from this two-time Super Bowl champion.

FD-04875B: with Kevin Gilbride,
former NFL coach and offensive coordinator for six NFL teams - spent over 20 years in the league;
earned two Super Bowl rings as the Offensive Coordinator for the NY Giants

Go on the field with long-time NFL quarterback coach, Kevin Gilbride, as he takes you through drill progressions that teach the quarterback position from the ground up. You'll learn all the tools that quarterbacks need to improve their mechanics, footwork, accuracy and decision making from the former coach of NFL players like Warren Moon and Eli Manning.

Footwork Drills

The entire foundation of improving quarterbacks is built on training them to be more confident on their feet. Coach Gilbride preaches the importance of footwork and believes throwing the ball starts from the player's base. The drills included work on foot speed, agility, hip movement and flexibility.

Multiple drop drills are shown as Gilbride coaches up the quarterbacks on the 3-, 5- and 7-step drops. Your players will learn why keeping their feet and body pointed in the right direction will help them throw accurate passes with more zip.

Movement Drills

Quarterbacks won't have the luxury of a clean pocket on every drop back, which is why learning to step up in the pocket and scramble to find open receivers is essential in the development of elite passers. Movement drills train the quarterback to move up in the pocket with a tight base, which allows for a quicker release of the ball. By training your quarterbacks to keep their eyes down field, they'll be able to scan the defense and spot teammates while evading pressure.

Throwing Drills

Coach Gilbride demonstrates a progression of drills to create the proper release at the end of the throwing motion. Quarterbacks are taught to push the ball away from the front shoulder and pick out a target on every release of the ball.

You'll also learn a vision drill that challenges quarterbacks to throw accurately and on time as a receiver races across the field between windows of defenders. As passers become more comfortable threading the needle in practice, they'll get more confident during crunch time in games.

This video is the perfect resource for any QB that desires to take their game to the next level. The drills and techniques taught by Coach Gilbride are certain to give quarterbacks the skills they need to successfully lead their team to victory.

Coach Gilbride's focus is on developing the complete receiver from stance, take offs and releases, to route running and reading and understanding coverages to create a better target for the quarterback. You will learn how to get quick separation and adjust to defensive coverages to improve the success of your passing game.

Stance and Release

Starting with the proper stance and how to get off the ball explosively in order to run the most effective routes, Coach Gilbride demonstrates successful release techniques against the hard press, soft press and lunge techniques commonly utilized by defensive backs. He discusses the importance of being violent with the arms, the pros and cons of swim and rip techniques, and foot patterns to counter the defensive back's strategy.

You'll learn the speed, jab, half diamond, drive and lunge release techniques to improve receivers' leverage and separation. Coach Gilbride explains the importance of the rip and crossover moves while staying low to the ground and maintaining balance. He illustrates the importance of moving inside and outside the frame of the defender and making cuts with proper timing and angles.

Route Running

Coach Gilbride explains how to make adjustments in response to defensive back positioning for the hitch, fade, slant, curl, and speed routes. You'll see players demonstrate when to convert, flatten, crossover, collapse a cushion, and use leverage to improve the success of the passing game. Coach Gilbride also pinpoints poor route running habits and what to do to correct them.

The techniques and skills contained in this video will improve your receivers' ability to create space and get open against multiple coverages. Practicing the explosive starts, separation and leverage techniques shared in this video will develop players into elite receivers.

Cover: phillip montgomery: baylor offense 2-pack
Phillip Montgomery: Baylor Offense 2-Pack
FD-04744A: with Philip Montgomery,
Baylor University Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach; 2013 Big 12 Champions;
2013 Offensive Coordinator of the Year (FootballScoop); coach of Bryce Petty, Big 12 Player of the Year; Robert Griffin III, Heisman Trophy winner; Nick Florence, All American; Kevin Kolb, Conference USA MVP; and Houston standout Case Keenum

Baylor Offensive Coordinator Philip Montgomery shares insights into a offense that has dominated college football for several years. Utilizing pace and offensive balance, Coach Montgomery's offenses have been lighting up scoreboards and racking up yards by the hundreds. In this presentation, he shares playbook-related drills to use in the step-by-step development of quarterbacks.

Quarterback Technique & Drills
With a balanced offense, you can ill afford to have a quarterback suffer through an off day. Coach Montgomery shows individual keys to correct performance and enable your quarterback to function at his highest potential. Learn small refinements like how to hold the ball in a way that disguises plays and makes quarterback movements more efficient.

Starting with the quick release, Coach Montgomery shares practice drills that he uses daily to train some of the top quarterbacks in college football:

  • Feet Parallel
  • Open Stance (easy way and hard way)
  • Walk Away (easy way and hard way)
  • Back Pedal
  • Walk Forward
  • Shuffle in Pocket
  • Lateral (easy way and hard way)

Coach Montgomery talks about eliminating steps in the quarterback's throwing motion and ensuring they are balanced when they throw the ball.

To demonstrate how these drills translate to game day, Montgomery shows game footage of Baylor's quick passing game. Throughout each play, he teaches the key points, timing and concepts for each throw.

Shallow Passing Game
Coach Montgomery also shares the philosophy and detailed coaching points of the Baylor passing game. You'll see:

  • subtle adjustments that go along with the shallow crossing passing game that will help the offense create explosive plays.
  • quick screens that are a major component of the Baylor offense to stretch the defense from sideline to sideline.
  • pass concepts to attack cover 0 pressure schemes to beat the blitz.

Regardless of the type of offense that you run Coach Montgomery's ideologies, simple rules and drills can be implemented to gain a leg up in the offense versus defense war.

Produced at the 2014 Dallas-Fort Worth Red River Nike Coach of the Year Clinic.

FD-04744B: with Philip Montgomery,
Baylor University Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach; 2013 Big 12 Champions;
2013 Offensive Coordinator of the Year (FootballScoop); coach of Bryce Petty, Big 12 Player of the Year; Robert Griffin III, Heisman Trophy winner; Nick Florence, All American; Kevin Kolb, Conference USA MVP; and Houston standout Case Keenum

The two most important aspects of a balanced offense are the quarterback and the running back. In this presentation, Baylor Offensive Coordinator and 2013 Offensive Coordinator of the Year Philip Montgomery shares specific drills to develop your running back. Reinforcing the concept that "you have to be able to apply your drills to what you are doing on the field," he teaches each drill and then uses game film to demonstrate how each drill shows up in a game.

Running Back Technique & Drills:

Coach Montgomery begins by working the mesh of the running back and quarterback. The mesh is the most fundamental component of the Baylor running attack. Everything is built from this foundation. Stressing specific steps and angles, he still leaves room for differing types of running backs. Using chutes, bags and personnel, he creates a game-like situation that can be controlled and critiqued in all phases. Uncomplicated drills are used as learning exercises to help running backs improve and develop their techniques.

After working the mesh, Coach Montgomery focuses on lowering the running back's pads and defining their footwork. These drills teach running backs to stay square before they make their cut. The longer the running backs stay square, the longer linebackers have to wait before they can commit to the gap. Using game simulation drills, Coach Montgomery develops the running back's technique by isolating each segment of the play so that it can be controlled and critiqued.

Properly defined techniques allow you to focus on what is necessary in this offense for running backs. This allows you to personalize and individualize drills needed to improve defined segments of the running backs' game.

Play Action Passing:
Help your run game succeed by keeping the defense honest and off-balance using Coach Montgomery's boots and "nakeds." Coach Montgomery uses game film to showcase play action out of the spread and eleven personnel with tight ends on the field. When a style of play or philosophy is broken down as thoroughly as it is in this presentation, it becomes easy to emulate the final product. This method of working with running backs is one you'll use again and again. It solves many problems regarding height of pads, mesh, power and making only one cut.
