GAP PHILOSOPHY - BEND, BUT DON'T BREAK
Players read and react to offensive reads. Each player has his gap responsibility. Linemen keep the line from getting to the linebackers and in turn the linebackers make the majority of tackles. However, the 20 is still an attacking defense. The defense is designed to bend, not break! We will give up minus two yards to a gain of two yards on the first and second down, which gives the offense 6 to 14 yards to go on third down. The 20 defense is easily adapted to all of today's complex formations and plays, making it easy for players and coaches to be successful.
