The basic Reverse Pass play is important for any offense to have in its arsenal. The key to the Reverse Pass is great protection. The Z and X must also stalk the cornerback before they release their routes.
Two Back Outside Zone is a great quick hitting perimeter run with a lead back for protection and to gain numbers to the play side. It uses fast zone blocking to stretch the line of scrimmage, always looking for seams in the defense.
The Zone Read Slice is a downhill play that allows you to create double teams on the front with a read action in the backfield.
Force the defense to practice against split zone and triple option, and get some draw action, with this flexbone wrinkle.
This Outside Zone Play gives you a lead block to the front side linebacker while reading the back side end man on line of scrimmage (EMOLS).
In this classick trick play, the tackle must get enough depth to be behind the depth of the QB in order for this to be legal.
If you are going to run down-field RPOs, limit your quarterback’s reads. Lead Zone is perfect for any RPO. There is no read on the run.
In the Jet Sweep PAP Post Wheel, double run fakes cause the defense to step up to allow your receivers to get behind them.
If the defense is in 2-Man, the play-action fake causes the linebacker to set up allowing the running back to slip behind him.
The Vertical route on the Sucker Play clears out space for the Dig. The Hitch occupies underneath coverage and creates a natural rub as well.
Replace blitzes – or “creepers” – are four-man rushes that attack an aspect of the protection or blocking scheme by overloading a player or side.
On the Dart RPO, if Mike fills, the quarterback pulls and throws Pop or Smoke based off the Sam’s movement. If Mike scrapes, the QB gives to the A back.
