3. Radar Defense:

The radar defense is something that I am sure you’ve seen. It is where nobody gets set and moves around in a little area before the snap. The advantage is that the offense doesn’t get to make an accurate pre-snap read and call the right protection. The radar defense is chaos for any quarterback and offensive line.

The truth is that the radar defense is just like any other look on defense. Each player has a role to play, and a responsibly. The difference with the radar defense (or the amoeba defense as it is also called) is that the defenders give away nothing before the snap.

It isn’t something that the defense should consistently do. The offense will catch on to it eventually. But as a nice look to throw into the game plan it could do wonders for the Giants defense. The name of the game is to create hesitation. When a quarterback hesitates he gets hit, when an offensive tackle hesitates, he gets the quarterback hit.
