Jaguars: Taking a look at the Todd Wash defense

Last week, I wrote an article about the Jaguars and their preference for the power run offense and what players are needed to make it effective here on Black and Teal. This week I want to look at the Todd Wash defense and what it needs to be as effective as it was in 2017.

This defensive is known as the “Seattle Defense” and was originally brought to Jacksonville by Gus Bradley. Basically, the premise of the Seattle/Wash defense is it uses an eight-man box to stop the run (one safety positioned close to the line of scrimmage) and a single high safety who can get sidelined to sideline in a cover three.
