Madden 16 Champion, Frank "Stiff" Sardoni Jr. returns to Playbook.gg with his Big Dime 1-4-6 defense. You can find this formation in several playbooks but Stiff runs it out of the New England Patriots defense.
The defense is built around the sugar concept in which the MLBs are lined up over the guards. This allows you to dictate blocking assignments and get free runners at the QB very easily. The goal of the scheme is to bring extreme pressure and force your opponent to start blocking 6 or 7 on every play. Then, with an identical presnap look, you can successfully drop 8 or even 9 defenders into coverage and confuse your opponent and force them to make mistakes.
The biggest strength of Stiff's defense is its simplicity. The setups are straight-forward and you'll be getting pressure on the QB immediately as you begin to lab this defense. The coverages are easy to set up and Stiff has an answer for every route combination your opponent can throw at you.
