Welcome to the Nickel Normal defensive gameplan on Playbook.gg!
Within this gameplan you will learn how I like to utilize Nickel personnel as my base personnel, and how I will base my defense with a split safety Cover 4 look to lock down the field in coverage while maintaining the best run fit on defense with 9 of your 11 defenders able to key on the run!
As with any defensive gameplan, we typically get half of our viewers asking if a specific breakdown "works" from their defense. Normally, this pertains to a 3-4 player asking if a video out of a 4-3 defense will translate, or vice versa.
With this particular defense (specifically the coverage rules), you will be able to run this base coverage from a Nickel Normal defense, or a Nickel 2-4-5 defense.
Something to also consider is that you can run this defense from ANY defensive playbook out of the Big Nickel Over G!
