  • Breaks up offense working as a team

  • Frustrates ball carrier

Philosophy against the run

Reasons for Contain

  • Takes the width of the field down from 54 yards to around 5 yards

  • Significantly reduces chances of big play

  • Forces ball carrier back to the teeth of the defense

  • Enables fill players to come aggressively
