The 335 is a fun defense to read up on. Lots of different ways to play it, and Bronco is one of the sensei of it, he of the Rocky Long tree. It can be set up a lot of different ways, but in one mainstream version you are playing 3 safeties with one, essentially, set up just behind the LBs who is both a cover/rush guy. Or could be a nickel, more coverage, or maybe a little more rush with speed enough. That guy under Bronco back in the day was called a Lobo, sideline to sideline, impossible for the offense to locate for blocking schemes, and who had enough coverage underneath. One who did pretty well was named Brian Urlacher. That story was told to Sam Brady in recruiting, who had like a 110 Sparq rating. Just sayin'. GO HOOS!
