Coaches spend hours and hours orchestrating offenses while saying that defense is mostly hard work. "Offense take s talent," goes the coaching saying, "defense takes desire." It is true; more can be accomplished with hard work over skill, on defense. But that is not to say that that coaches shouldn't teach defense as well as the teach offense. Most coaches teach defending the ball, denying the wing, playing the post, etc. I have not seen enough coaches teach defensive philosophy, tactics and situations as they do on offense.
