And your Double Wing, as well.

WOW... Coming from you man that means alot....  I just enjoy contributing to the knowledge base that IS this offense... I see less and less running in football as the years pass... The longer I can prevent that the better...

Not to massage your ego anymore, but Dave is right. You do a darn good job. I am sure you have seen that PW team from Philly. Have you played around with some of the formation tags like they do?

HAHAH thanks.. It doesn't. I still have just as much to learn as anyone else, I just immersed myself in it for a few years and the concepts hit me...

Yeah I have seen them.  I also saw the Union City team from a few years back that played in Florida with the DW (Calande I think) and they were killing everyone....

I do use TAGS but I only use six of them.  Three sets of two to do different things on the left and right..

ANGRY/UGLY unbalances my line with a Tackle over
FIRE/FLAME to put RT/LT Wing ON the LOS
BULL/BEAR to offset Fullback LT/RT

Those are all I use but I will go crazy with them at times to give a real different look. I will run counters to the Wing that is ON the LOS.  I will run Power with all three TAGS stacked so that we are EXTREMELY heavy right.  or left.... I run all my wedges from BULL because the QB doesn't have to avoid the FB on the handoff... simple things....

I'm having visions of going Angry Fire Bear and running power til the cows come home.  :P

You speak with fork tongue, Angry Fire Bear.  Cow not come home after you let it go.

Yeah thats the beauty of TAGS..... If I was a D coordinator I would be more scared of small variations like this than anything else....

If you run unbalanced power enough to that heavy side and then run anything left to weak it's a wrap....
