It seems if you set up the center and other pawns to block lanes as in basketball, then you can shut the lanes down for the offense and perhaps help your defensive position. Then you only need to be concerned about the knights.
Your opponent will not cooperate. They will crack you open and storm you.
This would work really well... in situations where you had all 8 pawns and your opponent had none :p
