Term I heard when discussing defensive backs and coverage techniques.  Can some one explain what it means to get "In phase" with the receiver when picking them up in coverage, or a good reference to read up on it?  Thanks.

I'm no expert, but I did hear Saban talk about it.

The way he used the terms, in phase means you're in good shape and out of phase means you're in trouble and have to recover. 

He said in phase you play the ball and out of phase you run to the man to get back in phase.

D

This is primarily a man coverage technique.

In Phase referring to being in sync or position with the offensive player.

Out Of Phase meaning out of coverage position.

When a defender is out of phase he must battle to get back into phase first then defend.

Hope that helps.

fizz,

We are a man to man team.  We stress staying phase, once in phase we can then play the ball. you have to play the man first, get into phase...but what does that mean?

description of "in phase" for us:

we want the dback between the qb and receiver at all times. Always "under" the receiver but in a position where hes within a forearms length of the receiver.  INside ...under...forearm length behind.....between the qb and receiver..

we say "chew triceps" meaning the receivers arm is bit off by the dback when in phase....

Thanks guys. That clears it up perfectly. Can't worry about the ball unless you are in position to defend it. Helps understand the hand slapping techniques once in phase.

Thanks again.

Saban mentioned that donors would ask him why Alabama never seems to have DBs who are beaten make picks on balls that are way underthrown.  He said they're trying to get back into phase rather than playing the ball, because it's easy to misjudge the ball and only think it's underthrown and get beaten over the top for a score.
