Not triple but I will implement the jet option and swing option once the core plays are down. I just have to much to teach to spend time on that expensive of a mesh.

B, once you get power in everything meshes, and you will see that the option is just a couple of tags and the fb assignment is like the funnel call.Simple! Oh if you can get the Stack  its,s  golden.jmo

First game is tomorrow. Finally, it feels like it has taken forever. I am pretty optimistic. They are a big school and way out of our league #'s wise.

Of course we lost two offensive lineman. 1 has a back issue and the other is sick. Down to 6 true lineman types. Just they way it goes.

Going to try to get some sleep. Pretty antsy.

Lost 16-13     
Kid play a good game. Lots of first game mistakes. We dropped three in hand interceptions. My TB did not hit his holes.  He may be going to wingback. Defensively we shut them down except for 2 plays. 40 yd td pass, my cornerback was there and got his hand on the ball tipped it to the WR. And one of my D ends did not do his job. Crashed in on the full back instead of going to deepest back, pitch to his side 20 yd td

Other than those 2 plays we kept them under 100 yds total.

My TB runs backward :( nice to find out in a game. Never did in practice. Even with 3 negative 15 yd rushes we had over 250 yds rushing.

FIRST PLAY went for a TD .....26 Blast. Had huge holes all day. Backs kept bouncing out into the trash.

May go to under center. Fumbled 3 snaps. Not sure.

Was a good day. I hate losing but last year against this school we were down 40-0 at half time. This was our first game their 2nd.

Cool note. The kids asked to do a 5 min Enduro right there after the game. Was pretty cool. Of course I'll probably get in trouble for punishing. Lol they requested.

B , great job. Yes the holes are there find a tb that runs down hill and you will triple your score. Is your centers getting plenty of snap? Put some one tough across him in snapping drills make him block down ,man and pass block. We do both utc and ds just for different looks, but ds brimgs a whole new rehlem to this offense. Just keep it going.

I'm burning a disk today and going to watch the game with the team. I think it will help a lot for them to see themselves. My left TE was in a frog stance and only got one pop with his hands and then stood there looking. Again not something we do in practice.

We do get a lot of snaps in practice, apparently not enough. We already have way more tools and are further along after our first game than we were after our last game last season.

We have our "rival" game next Tuesday. Against a team that hasn't lost in around 3 years. Counting youth and middle school.

Introduced the fence drill yesterday :) switched backs. I kinda feel bad about that. The kid had close to 180 yds rushing. He just will not hit the hole. All his huge runs were when he hit the hole. I introduced Cowboy yesterday as well. TB is now a wingback for the fly sweep.

Looks like we face a traditional 6-2 this game.

You could use him also in the Stack,and the I,s for jet and he,d be good also for reverse. A 60 don,t forget the edge tags,and you,ll wash quite a bit also.B, you ever thought about the Wham? suits a 60 well.Very easy install.

The next defense crashes the ends. Looks like they are a little shallower than Gregory's 6-3 but still crashing in.

I have issues. Blocking and running issues. Blocking is weak. Blocking in space sucks. Running just stinks. They will not change direction or run behind their pads to save their lives. I have a few that showed decent running "attitude " today. We'll see. In general the scheme worked beautifully my backs just wouldn't try.

Gained yards but not consistent. Scored on jet pass (thanks Durfee )

They looked like they were running a 4-7. Bringing 3-4 each down. Wish I could pass

Lost 6-28

Absolutely hate losing. Watched film and it wasn't as bad as I thought. We need to run with aggression.

Went back to basics this week. Although we had never left them. I just really emphasized technique all week. Repped as much as possible but went position to position and reviewed all details.
I have to do a better job coaching. Plain and simple.

At this point I am done with install. We can run the core with minimal confusion. We have installed cowboy fly, fly with naked boot, fly with quick slant, and a 31 base to fullback. These plays are iffy as I have to change qb's if I want to throw and for mobility. My Qb's need more technique instruction. My starter is hiding a shoulder injury I am pretty sure which is going to limit what I'll let him do. I have told them all this is 8th grade football and I will not let them ruin themselves for this level ball. I told him there is tuff then there is stupid.

Our conversation.
"What's going on with your arm?"    "Nothing coach".   "Why were you trying to do one arm push ups".    "My arm won't hold my up".   

"Hhmmm, and that's not a problem to you".   "It's fine when I throw".   "Don't throw with any strength anymore.  Tell me what's going on".     "Coach I'm fine, we have to many people saying they can't do this or that because they are hurt, I'm fine"

Love the kid but don't want him injured. I checked his shoulder no mobility issues no swelling. He says it doesn't hurt. Last year he had a stinger he got checked out for. And sat out some youth games. And he played lots of baseball this year. Not sure if he threw his arm out or what. Spoke to parents and the said he acted fine at home and no complaints.

He has really stepped up and worked hard for his position. I hate to demote him but we do need to be able to pass and I think something is up whith his arm. I am going to contact the parents again and see if they'll have him checked out. Like I said I want tough not stupid. I want them to play through dings but not injuries.

Focus this week is 26 blast, 35 gap, 28 jet, 45 counter, blue I 20 trap.

Durfee? My back QB relationship is to close on jets. I have made them stop the jab step. And tried having them "bubble" back abit as the take off. Any suggestions?

Again I have limited time and coaching. My wife timed the offensive line standing and talking for 9 minutes last Thursday. Spoke to my assistant coach. Trying to get that fixed. Out of the 24 only 8 are linemen so I am with 2 different groups of back and qb's. during individual times. (Which I have limited due to the line not repping anything while I am not there). Trying to rep with full team and half line so I can make sure it moves.

Boe, sounds like things are going well for you., great job. On jet put them at 7 yds do the same steps as 26 power when the left foot steps down hill go to jet motion NOW! So open with rt foot step down with left then get to jettin.Have you tried stack yet? 15 counter ,28 jet and jet ,26 power /blast and wham do real well, also will call a split in the stack telling the qb,to shift over and will run qb or fb counter and wedge,on the counters one of them will be the lead,after the jab step.

Thanks Durfee. I have started 0-2 but made a lot of progress. Both teams we played are top of our league. We knew it'd be rough. The holes are there. We were in both games. And moved the ball. First game we had over 300 yds total offense. The 2nd was a bit rougher against a very physical team. Much bigger than us and we had close to 150 yards rushing. Like I said this week is an opponent closer to our level. They are a mixed 7/8 grade as well.

I have not added stack or shift. I had high hopes of multiple formations this season. That just doesn't seam possible. Shoot I am tempted to go straight double wing.  To hell with what anyone thinks.

On my 28 jet I have the QB open step right foot,step left foot then pitch on 3rd step (as the right foot comes forward) QB opens running towards the sidelines with the fullback and the tailback.

I can see how stepping down with the left might give some seperation.

It's hard to feel good about an 0-2 start but things are much better than last season. I have to remember I have to overcome the losing mentality that has set root here. These kids completely expected to lose to their cross town rival. And I saw it in the game we kicked off first, they went 3 and out. We ran the ball down field and scored on a 22 yd jet pass. Kicked off stopped them again then we were driving down field and the big hits started happening and it was like my guys rolled over. They were sending atleast 3 every down. My guys held up and played hard the entire game. It just went to that they are bigger stronger and faster than us mentality. I called a time out and tried to get them back on track. Just wasn't happening. Halftime we stressed how much they had done and accomplished this year and how in shape and that they could be just as physical. Just wasn't happening. And honestly most of the other team were bigger than me.

Now were are back on schedule as far as a balanced playing field. We'll see how it goes.
