That all depends on the coach. There is no specific spot that someone stands on offense and defense. You will stand in different spots for different forms of defense and different spots for the type of offense you are running.
Good Reception? \n. \nIt counts as a completion. If both players have joint possession, the offense gets the ball.
Triple Alliance - defensive or offensive? . On paper at least, almost all long-term alliances are defensive - and this applied to the Triple Alliance, too.. Incidentally, in WW1 Italy fought against the "Triple" Alliance ...

Containment Policy . The Containment Policy of the Truman administration was basically an offensive threat to the expansion of the Soviet Union. It threatened to use force should the Soviets attempt to expand in areas that were not under Soviet control. Yet, it could also be considered defensive,… because it let the Soviets know that we would protect our interests in Europe and Asia, but not make the first military move. Containment would be a reply to any aggressive action by the Soviets. The policy was not only military, but also an economic and diplomatic policy. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Doctrine are examples of diplomatic and economic attempts of the Containment Policy in action. Korea and Vietnam are also military examples. (MORE)

The answer is "a good offense." Added : Ones mind is the primary self-defense tool. Use your ability to think, be aware, look, listen, and be familiar with common methods of attack. I would NOT recommend any defense tool or weapon, lethal or nonlethal, used for self-defense, which you are …not familiar with, have practiced with, are prepared to use fully, or understand the legal ramifications for their use. Remember, which ever weapon you choose for self defense it can be used against you, not dogs usually. A bat can be taken away from you and a gun or knife can be turned against you. (MORE)
Offense is when your team has th ball and trying to score. Defense is when you are trying to prevent the other team from scoring.
If you can take your opponent out, before HE starts to consider taking YOU out, you don't need any other defense... The quote is attributed to Clausewitz works 'On War', which is in turn based on the work of Sun Tzu and Mao tse Tung. In it he states that if party A does nothing but defend himself f…rom party B then he will inevitably be worn down and defeated as the attacking party B is free to constantly regroup and attack endlessly. The only option to successfully defend against B is to go on the offensive and remove B's attacking capabilities. In other words defence just prolongs inevitable defeat. (This was written in an age before nuclear deterrence (MORE)

White Foxes only attack their food and if they are defending themselves. White Foxes usually run from most predators if they know that they stand no chance.
The way gazelles protect themselves are not with their horns, but with their legs. I'm trying to say here, is that they run away from their predators as fast as they can.They also leap to go farther distance.
Well, you need to score runs to win, but one lucky swing can give you a homer. So if you look at it this way, if out of 27 batters, one hits a home run, you're ahead 1-0 if the other team doesn't score, which a good D will prevent. Also, baseball is the only sport in which the DEFENSE controls the b…all, so I'd go with defense, if you hold them at zero, you'll eventually score. (MORE)

How many players do you have to have on the line on offense and defense in football line on offense and defense?
There has to be 11 players on offense and Defence for every play. There has to be at least 7 players on the line of scrimmage prior to the snap of the ball. This applies to both offense and defence
Well, that is very simple. The offensive players attack the ball more and get more of a chance to score while the defensive players stay back and defend the goal and very rarely get a chance to shoot.
Yes you can. Deion Saunders who played for the Dallas Cowboys played both offense and defense.
When you are on offense your team is up to bat. Defense your team is pitching and trying to get 3 outs on the opposing team.
defense is when you are playing in the field. batting isn't really referred to as offense but when a team is at bat i guess you could say that.
yo wussup mang wus gud mang how ya doing. dude im black. what did yo expect word
Communist troops attacked Saigon, the capital city of South Vietnam, and thirty of its provincial capitals.
That is generally not the case. The best offense will usually win many games and get you to the playoffs, but the best defense always proves to win championships. Thus, the Boston Celtics have won while the Phoenix Suns have not.
Offence is when your team has the ball, and trying to score. When your on defense the other team has the ball, it's your teams' job to prevent the other team from scoring.

For on offense there are five linemen (Left Tackle, Left guard, Center, Right Guard, and Right Tackle) and there are 6 people that can touch the ball (one of which is quarterback) . the other 5 people can be any combination of Wide Recievers, Runningbacks, and tight ends on defense there are no req…uirements for what players you have on the field but usually there 4 linemen (Left and right Defensive Ends and left and Right Defensive Tackles) 3 Linebackers (left and right outside linebackers and a middle linebacker) and 4 Defensive Backs (left and right cornerbacks, a strong safety, and a free safety) (MORE)
there is a quarterback on the offensive team because he throws or hands it off to a player or he's able to run the ball. the defensive team doesn't have a quarterback becausethey don't have the ball then
i would say Spain with villa and Torres but Argentina are a close second because they have messi teves aguero milito England also haved an excellent offense with Wayne Rooney defoe and crouch all good players and Gerrard and lampard
While it is hard to say one has an advantage over the other because of all the variables, offense should have the advantage for a few reasons. 1) The offense knows the snap count. When playing defense you are constantly trying to guess when the center will snap the ball. So in theory the offensive s…hould be faster of the ball which allows the offensive line to engage the defense first giving them the upper hand. 2) Arguably the hardest position to play in footabll is CB. As a defensive back you have the challenge of guarding a guy that is usually just as physically gifted as you but taller. You also have the challenge of not knowing what route he is going to run. Its another guessing game that is very difficult. And the final reason it odds. If you take in to consideration the odds of guessing everything right, on every play, against all 11 Offense players, the odds are you are going to fail more than you succeed. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Jiu Jitsu is both defensive and offensive. But, I think that there is more offense to Jiu Jitsu.
Teams Switch When The Offense ether Punts It, Gets A Touchdown, Or Makes A 3 Point Field Goal
An offensive action is normally when you attack - in tennis (for example) if you were to play an offensive shot you would go for a big hit, or a risky drop shot. A defensive shot would be just playing the ball safe, making sure you get it in.

Well, women say a lot of things, but this joke is sexual in nature, and has to do with wat she says during sex, whether it be for enjoyment or not
The offense is whoever has possession of the ball trying to advance into their opponents endzone. The defense is the team trying to stop them.
Defence, the Cornerback is a position that covers opposing wide recievers. Because they often work on the corners or edges of the field (where the fastest receivers are placed) they are known as "corner"backs
Rabbits mainly rely on their speed and agility for defense. Camouflage also plays a big role. In northern, snowy climates the rabbits have evolved with white fur, contrasted by brown rabbits in the desert. As for Offense, they have none; they are herbivores.
Part of the reason the Saints lost to the Niners on Saturday is that their defensive game plan was too simple. They acted as if stopping Frank Gore would stop the entire Niners offense. They committed eight, nine, sometimes ten defenders to the box to shut down Gore and they left every single receiv…er in single coverage - even Vernon Davis. This was a bad strategy. You can't single cover Vernon Davis - can't do it. When the the Niners played the Giants back in Week 10, the Giants defensive strategy was similar - everyone stop Gore. They stopped him - he gained zero yards - but the Niners still won. Smith hit Delanie Walker over and over again with passes and at the end of the game, when the defense finally tried to account for Walker, Smith hit a wide open Vernon Davis for a touchdown. You can bet that the Giants won't over-commit to stopping Gore and the rest of the Niners run game - it's a proven loser strategy against this team. Here's my best guess as to how the Giants defense will play the Niners offense - they'll keep eight defenders in the box on most downs. They'll double team Vernon Davis at all times. They'll blitz on second and third and long. And they'll leave the wide receivers alone in one-on-one coverage. They will not let Vernon Davis beat them like the Saints did. That would be stupid. They're going to force Michael Crabtree and Ted Ginn Jr. and Kyle Williams beat them. So, those are the key Niners this weekend. Each one of them is going to have to play his best game of the season for the Niners to win. Here's some good news for the offense - Delanie Walker wrote on Twitter that he worked out Sunday and he's ready to play next weekend. Smith needs a secondary receiver to complement Davis and Walker can be that guy - last time the Niners played the Giants Walker led all Niners with 6 receptions for 69 yards. One last thought - this may be the perfect game for Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman to bring back the pass plays to Joe Staley and Isaac Sopoaga. Michael Crabtree is the obvious player you'd expect to step up as a secondary receiver, but he's got a tough matchup against Corey Webster - a very good cornerback who held Crabtree to just one catch back in Week 10. The Niners are going to have to be extra creative in the pass game to win this one (MORE)
