Bill Belichick breaks down some of history's best defenses

"I think a good defensive game plan is very important. It comes down to a lot of little things. One play, one call, one technique can make the difference in your season." - Bill Belichick

In the video, Belichick breaks down how the Steel Curtain of the 70s, the '86 Bears & the 1990 New York Giants. Each of these teams featured outstanding individual athletes; but the schemes each employed maximized the havoc those athletes were able to wreak.

One common theme you hear Belichick describe is how the defenses were structured to get the offense off of their game or to take away their best player / plays.

Good stuff here. Enjoy...
