The Best Strategy Using the 4-2-5 Defense

The 4-2-5 Defense is basically the same as the 4-4 Defense except that we will be calling the two Outside Linebackers as the Strong Safety and the Weak Safety. Otherwise, there is no real difference between the 4-2-5 and the 4-4 defense. The following discussion will be about the base alignment of the 4-2-5.

On the Strong Side, we’re going to have a Tackle in a strong 3-Technique. Then we’re going to have an End at the 7 which is shaded inside the Tight End. If we’ve got a very good End, we could technically look like we’re strong enough.

We have the Mike Linebacker in a 30-Technique, outside shade of the Guard and 5 yards off the ball. This is where we’ll play A-gap.

The Strong Safety should be 3×3 off the End Man on the Line of Scrimmage (EMOLS). He’s our box player so he’ll run and we’re going to make sure that he’s going to force to play back to the inside.

On the Weak Side, we’ve got a Tackle in a 1-Technique. He’s going to handle the A-gap. Our Will Linebacker is going to be in a 30-Technique outside shade of the Guard. He’s going to handle the B-gap to his side. If we shift the two Tackles over, we can let Will run a 4-2-5 and give Mike a little more responsibility. These all depends on the types of players that we have.

Our End is going to be 50 outside shade of the Weak Side. Take your best athlete. You don’t need to know a lot and you don’t want to have to think too much. Put him on that Weak Side and then let him go. That’s a great spot to put somebody who is a great athlete. He may not be a true Defensive Lineman and may not be down to split double teams but he must be someone who can really run and can put pressure on the passer. We’re going to cut this guy loose and just let him go.

The Weak Safety is our box player on the Weak Side. The 4-2-5 defense is an 8-man front which means that we should be running some sort of a Cover 3 shell behind it as our base. Whether we’re running a one high, a man coverage, or a Cover 3, any of these is going to fit well with 4-2-5.

You can work things like a Cover 2 or Quarters Coverage with the 4-2-5 but it is not structurally setup for that. The simplest thing you can do is run a Cover 3. You could still adjust to all the formations when you get your doubles and your trips.

You’re going to have to take some time to teach the Weak Safety how to collision and carry a #2 receiver out there. You have to teach the Cornerback how to split two receivers running verticals in his zone.

So those are the techniques that you could teach. Since you’ll have to teach a whole lot of the Linemen, you’re going to have to work with the simple basics of the 4-2-5 defense.

Premier League Match Time: Birmingham Vs West Ham

Premier League Match Time: Birmingham Vs West Ham

Premier League Match Time: Birmingham Vs West Ham

It’s Premier League match time as Birmingham City host West Ham United on Saturday afternoon at St Andrew’s.

West Ham will look forward to the game against the Blues as one of three opportunities to get out of the relegation mine, with matches against West Brom and Blackpool line up after this one. The Hammers are at the bottom of the pile in twentieth place on the points table.

Indeed, manager Avram Grant’s fortunes are tied up with the performance of his charges in these three games, with the players reportedly unhappy about some of the substitutions their manager made in the game against Arsenal in match week ten. Nothing is going right for the team at the moment.

Thomas Hitlzperger’s injury has hurt West Ham badly as they did not have a back up plan for the unexpected eventuality. That said, the game against Arsenal was hard-fought and had they taken an early lead, they could have brought off an unlikely win on a day when they kept the Arsenal attack at bay for the best part of 87 minutes.

In fact, West Ham got their first opportunity barely nine mnutes into the atch when Fabianski between the Arsenal posts barely managed to keep a Scott Parker free kick out, after Song had tripped Piquionne to set it up. Mark Noble was another player who impressed on a day when the Hammers stayed positive against their more fancied rivals.

Birmingham are just five places ahead of the Hammers, in fifteenth position. But with two back to back clean sheets in their most recent Premiership games, the Blues are justified in feeling they are beginning to find their stride this season.

But a problem with Birmingham’s game this season has been their defensive mindset; they have concentrated on keeping their rivals from scoring rather than scoring themselves. This was reflected in the Blues’ opting to go with just one striker in Zigic. But Birmingham would consider themselves for not having a penalty appeal upheld by the umpire after a plapabe handball by Reo-Coker in Villa’s box.

The Blues’ goalless draw away against Aston Villa in match week ten was the first of seven Premier League matches when Villa were kept from winning against their derby rivals, and Birmingham will take that as a positive sign. Larsson and Carr were impressive for Birmingham, as was Scott Dann in the back. Dann was booked after he brought down Villa skipper Clark, and he must be careful in the Hammers game as his team can ill-afford to be reduced to ten men against Grant’s men who are desperate for their second win this season. Birmingham are always hard to beat at home, and predictably, bookmakers favour the Blues to win.

Ahead of the match, Birmingham have Beausejour and McFadden on the injured list, while West Ham will miss Hitzlsperger, Hines, Collison and Noble for the same reason. In addition, Faubert is serving out a three match suspension.

Birmingham had the following players in the first eleven in their game against Aston Villa: Foster, Carr, Johnson, Dann,

Ridgewell, Larsson, Gardner, Ferguson, Fahey, Hleb, Zigic

The following player featured as a substitute in the match: Jerome

West Ham’s starting eleven against Arsenal comprised: Green, Jacobsen, da Costa, Gabbidon,Ilunga, Parker, Behrami, Noble, Boa Morte, Obinna, Piquionne

The substitutes who played in the match were: Barrera, Cole, Faubert
