    We can run base 3-3-5 now? I was thinking of that or 4-2-5 but was told it was banned...

    Where did we decide that? The only reason I am using it is because my LB are shit in a jerzey.

    same, or mine were... but that would mean you would want to run a 4-2-5.

    I asked to use it a few times and was shot down...

    I practiced with the 4-2-5 and I don't like playing NT in a 4 man front.

    3-3-5 relies a lot on your LBs to cover. It is kind of over powered though, atleast in the past, so it wasnt allowed as a base.

    Make a ruling so I can figure out if I need to switch back to the 3-4.

    I thought the 3-3-5 was bannned as well due to its over effectiveness in years past.

    I do have 1 3-3-5 formation but it is essentially the 3-4 with one of the OLB's subbed out for a SS. I'd highly recommend checking it out.

    ya that is the base 3-3-5 stack defense... which is what is banned

    the 3-3-5 which is allowed, is the nickel 3-3-5 found in the 4-3 base and others

    Just for reference, I ran it constantly last year against Timpe (it was part of my custom playbook) and he torched it.

    I don't have enough experience running it to say if the over-effectiveness is gone this year. I am still concerned with the 5 DBs and the SSs (rover) being too close to the line of scrimmage.

    Shaun, in your honest opinion have you used it enough to know whether your defense is more effective than they should be?

    Honestly, I think it is fine. You can get different looks out of it, but the computer has moved the ball in a similar fashion. I used it mixed in last year against you, Emmdotfrisk, Jmustang1968 and Timpegoose with mixed results. J and Goose ran all over me last year with it.

    Passing, it is the same as nickle strong except you have a second SS instead of a nickleback.

    If the league is against it, I'll go back to the 3-4 (which I prefer, just don't have the personnel).

    ?

    You mean the same except for there are 4 DL and 2 LB in nickel strong while the 3-3-5 has 3 DL and 3 LBs?

    I honestly don't remember anything that didn't seem sim out of it. I actually threw the ball better in that game then I had all season, and running didn't seem unrealistic.

    Ya the 335 stack is almost like a 3-5-3. The ss come to the line like OLBs

    I don't know which version of the cheese-laden 3-3-5 I run, I just know it literally plays and looks exactly like the 3-4 except for 1 OLB is subbed out for a SS. It offers nice flexibility and for a 3-4 base defense team its a nice wrinkle. I wouldn't run it if I thought it was cheesy.

    The normal 3-3-5 formations are fairly cheesy because I feel like I should be able to run but the AI gets retarded and doesn't block correctly. Thats just my opinion, but I'm not overly against letting people use it to see how it goes either.

    Y1 I used only 3-4. I added the 3-3-5 because the spread teams were killing me.
