“outside the box” with a simple system of

moving “in the box” either by pre-snap alignment

What I learned on the Niagara Regional Police SWAT team thirty years ago transformed both our philosophy on offense and defense between 1992 to the present. 

For example, our SWAT situations included location recognition, pursuit, converge, and apprehension - just like football.

In those situation, there was one specific goal with rapidly changing circumstances, and risk - just like football. We had to develop an action plan composed of strategy and improvisation (freedom to decide within structure to adapt to rapid change) - just like football. And our SWAT team had to be mobile, agile, and act with precision - just like football.

 

In 1992, our base defense was a conventional 4-3 (four defensive linemen on level one, three linebackers on level two) when a good problem arose - we had linebackers who were too big and too many defensive back (cornerbacks and safeties).

There was particularly an excessive number of strong safety types with minimal drop-off in talent among this group. Some were bigger, some were a shade faster, but all were nasty. They were basically a platoon of mobile, agile, and hostile players. None of them could sit on the bench - they had to be on the field. ...
