Depends on what play & what blocking scheme.  The 5 categories deal would hold up WITHIN each seperate scheme.  That way, your coaches & kids wouldn't go nuts because a defender or two moved an inch or two (JUST CATEGORIZE INTO 5 LOOKS).  We don't use blocking calls per se, but it is EASY for the Center to call out OKIE, UNDER, EVEN. OVER, OR JAM (if you wish).

PS: WE have ONLY the ZONE scheme, & the GAP scheme (Counter/Power) & Pass Pro,  & this works out BEAUTIFULLY for OUR kids!

MUCH easier to discuss this via phone, because I don't know your offense.

Not in MY offense.

Here is an ATTACHED sheet from the Green Bay Packers (one of my former players is on their staff).

THIS shows how they write up OUTSIDE ZONE rules using those FIVE CATEGORIES.  It tells the player what block to use according to the category.  You could run a THOUSAND defenses aqainst them & this simple sheet is ALL they have to know.

Don't think I can give a better example.

PS:  You won't recognize what they  CALL their blocks, but they are ALL zone combinations used by every zone coach.  Once again - EASIER TO EXPLAIN VIA PHONE (but our kids picked this up REAL QUICVK)
you have those adjustment that I am referring to.  Not complicated if you understand those front families.

Correct.,  It is easier to work vs. 5 fronts than 30. 

Note:  Since they blocked OKIE & UNDER essentially the same;  EVEN & OVER essentially the same; & JAM usually stands by itself, they are using only THREE block variations (present in ALL zone offenses I know of, but this makes it MUCH SIMPLER than trying to learn all this vs ALL the possible fronts out there)!!!

PS:  85% of the time we see OVER/UNDER/EVEN.  15% = OKIE OR JAM.

PPS:  It's midnight & I am going to bed.  PHONE if need be tomorrow.

Most of the BEST coaches I know are now doing it.  I just got off the phone with a coach who wanted to know how we taught the "POWER" & "COUNTER" blocking.  This is an example I gave him of using the "categories":

1.  VS. ALL  "OKIES" & "UNDERS" = "TREY" (ON T & TE DOUBLE TEAM)

Who Blocks the S on Okies & Unders?

Bill

I was really hoping Coach Moore would take over as OC in Denver when Coach McCoy took over as HC in San Diego.

Dang It !

Collect moments, not wins.

Found these diagrams illustrating responsibilities for both GAP and ZONE schemes.
The sword is more important than the shield.

Denver Broncos bringing Alex Gibbs back as offensive line consultant

The Denver Broncos will bring Alex Gibbs back as an offensive line consultant, The Denver Post reports. Gibbs, 72, once served as the team’s offensive line coach from 1995 to 2003. The Broncos won two Super Bowls with Gibbs as the offensive line coach. Gibbs’ offensive blocking schemes assisted running back Terrell Davis and quarterback John Elway excel in the Broncos offense.

Broncos head coach John Fox said Gibbs would be “a good resource” and believes Gibbs can help the current Broncos offense. Last season, the Broncos brought in quarterback Peyton Manning’s former offensive coordinator with the Indianapolis Colts as part of a mandatory minicamp.

The Broncos were 16th in the league in rushing yards and 5th in total passing yards.
