Let us know.  It pretty much came from flag football.

First practice was last night.  It installed very easily.  The main concern I think I am going to have is spacing, because the NFL flag field is a littler more narrow than I would like. 

But I have a stud QB, and I have some stud receivers, so we will see, first game is May 1st.

Seems to me that winning is pretty sure in this 5 on 5 flag game if you have a stud QB and more than one stud receiver...

Pretty much every team has 4 or 5 studs, and then 4 or 5 whatever the opposite of stud is.  There is very little grey area, very weird player pool.

I looked it up on http://www.merriam-webster.com/ and the opposite of stud is:

dog, grotesquerie (also grotesquery), monster, nerd


So, we have studs and we have nerds.   :P

That would be a duts.

This offense is definitely not ideal for NFL flag.  It is severely impacted by the narrowness of the field, and you see some very vanilla stuff.  Team we just played... following route rules, hitch and go every time.  They lined up at about 3-4 yards head up on all 4 of my receivers. 

We have not played a team that runs zone, but we did scrimmage one, and it does much better against zone. 

For flag on a standard width football field, I think this O would work much better, might not be a good choice for NFL flag though.

It works great when you let the kids pick routes and just signal them. That way you can have them signal every time and then mix in concepts. Should have the defense guessing all over the place.
