3-3-5 and 4-2-5
Anyone felt these out yet? Are leagues allowing them?
I haven't really used the 3-3-5 at all... but I've used the 4-2-5 a lot.
Doesn't seem over proportionately powerful against the run... but I haven't tried setting up blitzes to exploit the AI or moving people out of position yet. /shrug
Haven't played with those exclusive playbooks but I feel dirty every time I use the 3-3-5 package in the nickel. In my experiences its been stronger against the run than it should be, and that's playing the Cover 2 Buc.
The 3-3-5 is not exceptionally strong against the run IMO. I have used it from the nickel quite a bit. Seems more balanced.
actually these defenses are quite week its the 4-6 this year thats the do all shut don defense ive seen
I agree with bama. I've had alot of trouble against the 4-6 normal out of multi D book
People on OS are saying that the 4-2-5 is pretty amazing this year with decent athletes. I had a game where my power running game was shut down by it. I couldn't even run straight up the middle because a CB or S would come around the end to fast. If I tried to pass I was getting hit pretty quickly by blizting CBs and with how flawed CPU pass defenders are this year it was impossible to pass on it as well.
I have a lot of trouble with the 46 normal this year, also. Haven't played against the 4-2-5 yet, but I did use it my first game and it worked alright. Nothing amazing, though. However, I didn't have the absolute best athletes using TCU.
I've had both the CPU and users run all over me using the 4-2-5. I don't find it unbalanced in any sort of way, it has weaknesses like any other defense, depending on what play you're calling. The 3-3-5, I cannot vouch for but the 4-2-5 seems perfectly fine to me this year.
