    We play Palms coverage and I have my corners playing a shuffle tech, but when we play a man concept we have to square up. What is the thought of playing a man from the same shuffle tech?

    I picked this up from Nick Rapone, who is currently the safeties coach at with the Buccaneers. He was coaching the Cards at the time. He said Patrick Peterson can’t backpedal. He played shuffle tech every snap no matter the coverage. He is an elite athlete so of course he can get away with it, but they never tried to change it. So I have brought the same philosophy with all of my corners ever since, and often times will coach up the individual kids to the technique they are best suited for. So if I have a tall kid who isn’t very fast, he’s working shuffle always no matter the coverage. If I have a kid with great hips and fast feet he’ll pedal out every snap. But I find if I go about it that way then I don’t have to worry about splitting indy time working each tech with every kid, they will just always work with what is best for them, and I really only spend time with everyone on both techniques at the beginning of the season when I can assess their abilities. I should also mention the Cards were a cover 4 concept team at the time, and my defense uses those same route matching concepts on a split coverage 4-2-5 so I know you can do both without a problem.

    I teach both Techniques but in all my zone coverages. I teach shuffle tech I think teaching shuffle tech in man to man is tough because I feel you lose your Wr and giving up leverage, but I could feel bias coaching at the high school level and knowing that kids can be undisciplined with there eyes, because in shuffle tech zone I’m reading QB eyes and man I want to know where my man is at all times.
