In the closing seconds of an early-December 2018 matchup between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots, the Dolphins won in the most unlikely way.
The Midline is the “up-the-middle” concept for your offense. The most basic type of Midline play is a double-option between the quarterback and the B-back.
The quarterback’s read on the Dart RPO is critical to the success of the play. The QB has a pre-snap read and post-snap decision on the nickel or safety.
The inside power scheme known as a Wham utilizes a trap block, or “wham” block, on the defensive tackle in an Over Front.
Coaches looking for the right play call will always be right when running the Pin and Pull RPO concept. Whatever look the defense throws, you’ll be ready.
The RZ Switch Corner concept is a lot like your standard Switch concept, except that it places the Z and H Backs in the “switch” positions.
For teams that move fast and play faster, the Midline Outside Zone (OZ) is a tremendous asset. The QB begins by reading his first defensive lineman.
The Shovel Sprint Out is a unique play and wouldn’t necessarily fit into every offense, but it can have devastating effect.
This simple but effective RPO gives the QB flexibility to throw the bubble if the overhang defender creeps into the box, or to the WR split to the left if the backside safety crashes to defend the run.
This Cross Concept is a pretty standard usage of a Y crossing route, but gives the quarterback the opportunity to quickly read from left to right.
The Power Read is an outstanding play that uses a combination of a traditional power scheme and a read-option scheme to gain an advantage on the defense.
Use the split zone to create misdirection within the running game and maintain an effective passing game. It can be run from Shotgun or under center.
