Coaching 101: Beating the Seattle D

Posted January 27

The final installment of Coaching 101 breaks down what the Denver Broncos will need to do to expose the Seattle defense.

The Seahawks base defensive coverage is 4-3 up front and cover three — ya'll can look back on past Coaching 101's if you've forgotten what each of those defensive schemes are. 

But Seattle alters that base scheme a tad, they play a zone underneath, man on the outside and sit a free safety deep. 

How can Denver beat the pure athletes and great defense that makes up the Seahawks? Look for Peyton Manning to shift his halfback to the weak side, watch the video to get the full break down.

    To make the defense move from a man coverage to zone coverage with the backfield shift makes sense. I can see Peyton doing some short flare outs, quick curls, screens, and maybe drag an end across the middle. If his OL can do the job is the real questions against the top defense. If they can have success it will open up the running game. I enjoy all that you have presented this season Coach Logan.
