balanced?
« on: October 13, 2014, 03:33:30 PM »
We tend to face massed defenses similar to what is described in this manual. Usually a version of the 6-2 shooter, they're bringing 8 every play.

We started out with dcwt with the plan of going to the single wing should that not work due to massed defenses. It has been my experience inthe past that dcwt doesn't handle that well.

Changing worked but we wanted a better cross between dcwt and this single wing.

Our cross turned into a pistol double wing. You can run left right and middle equally, motion into a balanced line single wing, andhave slightly better misdirection. We could still go unbalanced but haven't yet.

If you know dcwt you should be able to see: 23, 24, 25&26 power, 36, 45, left 22 trap and right 45 kick. I think we did motion and run 16 and 15 as well

Played our final game Saturday. Lost a heartbreaker to a last second touchdown. Trying to get film

Still waiting on film, but I've had time to think. How feasible would it be to combine dcwt, dcrns and single wing?  I have read where coaches are already running beast with rns, beast is just a version of sw, only thing missing are the dcwt concepts. Replace the "quick" plays from dcwt with quick passes from rns. Might be a pretty solid offense if you could figure out how to mesh it together

Well, Ted Seay has promoted bunch patterns passing to the QB, WB, & strong side E in single wing.

Don't know that i will ever get a copy of our last game. it was filmed by a team in my org that was scouting our game. they would play the winner of our game for the championship.


one thing we had a lot of success with was lining up like this:

   oo0oooo
 3              4
     F1
       
We could motion and use 3 as a traditional blocking back and run 26/28, but if the coach noticed our unbalanced line and shifted to our strong side we could motion 4 across and then run 15/17. it was money. in our leage the onfield coach can't make any calls once the qb starts his cadence. once they shift we just motion the other way and they're lined up wrong. if we wanted to run up the middle, we just snapped the ball while 3 or 4 was almost at the hole. a lot like a dcwt power.

the more we played around with this "offense" the more we moved F. when we ran a balanced front we would usually line him up directly behind the qb, but as we went unbalanced we would move him to one side or another, depending on what we wanted to do.

also, we eventually ran a  "buck" style backfield action that seemed to work well. we would run trap to the fb and an off tackle trap to the hb off of the fake to the fb. you can see it in a couple of times in the video above.

Im starting to think "buck", belly, and power may be the way to go. all three series are formation independent. Just rambling here. sometimes typing it out can help think things through.
