This page is to show you what the different formations are, and what they are mostly used for. This will only include the "normal" set, but there are different types of each formation, which move around the defensive backs and line backers.

Formations

3-4
4-3
46

3-4



The 3-4 formation is the base formation for some teams. You use three D-Linemen, one head up on the center and two on the tackles. The four Linebackers line up with two head up on the guards and two on the outside. There are 4 DBs. This is used when there are 2 or less wide receivers.

4-3



The 4-3 formation is the base formation for some teams. You use four D-Linemen, two head up on the guards and two outside the tackles. The three Linebackers line up with one head up on the center and two on the tackls. There are 4 DBs. This is used when there are 2 or less wide receivers.

46



The 46 formation is the base formation for few teams. There are four linemen, one free safety, and there are two cornerbacks, a strong safety, and three linebackers, all at the same depth. It is great for stopping the run.

Dime



The Dime formation is maily used when there are four wide receivers, and one runningback. There are four linemen, one linebacker, two safeties, and four cornerbacks. This is used to stop the pass.

Goal Line



The Goal Line defense is used to stop the run. You line up with five linemen, three linebackers, two cornerbacks, and one safety. This formation consists of a series of blitzes to stop the run.

Nickel



The Nickel formation is a lot like the dime formation. It is used to stop the pass, but the run stopping is not too bad. You use this when there are 3 receivers. Line up with four linemen, two line backers, two safeties, and three cornerbacks.

Quarter



The Quarter defense is only used when you know there will be a pass. You line up with three linemen, one linebacker, two safeties, and five cornerbacks. Use this when there are no runningbacks and five wide recievers.
