Having a Counter Read in place with a Bubble on the outside of a spread formation “constrains” the number of players a defense can keep in the box.

This Speed Option Pass is an example of one of the most successful plays in football. The concept and the scheme are simple, and requires little teaching.
The Stick Draw RPO is one of the most popular RPOs in the game of football. This play is much like other RPOs in that it runs through the same progression.
One goal with our Smoke/Pop Gap RPO is to put certain defenders in conflict so they have to make a quick decision to defend the run or the pass. Our subsequent goal is to keep things simple to play fast. This is an example of a play that does just that.
Sure, this may be one of the earliest plays you can possibly learn in the pee-wee passing game, but the tight-end pop pass coming out of a stretch play can still gain serious yardage in the seam and create big plays.

SCISSORS – Gun Wing Right is a great shot play. It creates a situation in which the Z and H overlap, forcing the defense to choose which receivers get covered on the fly. Check out these X’s & O’s.
FLOOD – Split Gun Twins Right is like many other Flood plays. It uses a strategy in which the offense tries to outnumber the defense by sending more players to one part of the field than the defense can cover. Check out these X’s & O’s.
Like a variety of spread-to-run offenses, two-back shotgun formations have been around for some time. That said, this zone triple reverse from the Split Gun Twins Right formation is a reverse to behold if you get it done right. Check out these X’s & O’s.

Perhaps the most talked-about play in Super Bowl LII, Philly Special is a trick play designed to get the quarterback into the flat to receive a pass.
