History and Guide to NFL Defenses

The NY Times isn’t normally the website that you think of having great football reporting, but they have an in-depth and educational series on the different defensive schemes in football over time.  Looks like it will come out in 7 parts and the first 3 are already published.  Probably more information that you want to know as a causal fan, but for those looking to understand a little more about the history and origin of the defensive schemes you watch today, the series is enlightening.

I will update this post as new articles in the series are published..


Updates based on additional posts
