    3-4 Defense Question

    I just recently started moving some of my OD defenses to a 3-4 but have some questions about the playbook.

    1. Why do I only have one option on kickoff returns?

    2. Why don't I get PR safe (two men back there to return)?


    Are they not there for a specific reason? A little lost, any answers would be appreciated.

    There are only two options on KR... either return or onsides, the other PBs just have 4 selections but IDK why

    Thanks. This is garbage, I like having two returners back there and like choosing the triangle button kickoff return.

    at what point do you move this blocker? If you move him before the snap that to me is a little cheezy and frowned upon in TF4. Not trying to call you out MR just wondering.

    Pulling the guy off the line is frowned upon but I was referring to the PR Safe Return (?). I figure I'm never going to block a punt so why bother sending all them guys. Put two men on the gunners and an extra for anyone that slips through and grab my ten yards, lol.

    Yeah, I know what you are talking about.

    The Punt Safe return w/ two returners, and just one corner on each gunner.


    It does suck that they don't have it in the 3-4 playbook.

    Is their only one corner on the gunners? I never realized that, lol. I honestly thought they pulled extra guys off the line to block. I need a bigger TV
