Yeah, EBE is a VERY tough place to run DTDW. I know from experience.

If I ever move to the Town, we’re joining forces w/ some badass DWT + stuff. If we have to we’ll start from the Power T so they think we’re running wishbone. lol

DC Wing T Offense / Re: Facing this "D" in Playoffs
« Last post by dan82564 on Today at 04:57:37 PM »
After watching the game film again I noticed they go in and out of a TNT front. Looks something like this

...................................S..............................
.................................................................
....C....................B.................B.......................C
................B.............................................B
....................... .....T...N...T..........S..............
...........E.............T..G..C..G..T.....E
.................................Q...................W
...........................3.......................................................
.................................2....................................


Safety 8-10 yards off ball LBr's move around a lot. Sam LB lines up on strength based off of formation.  Based off of how they lined up on another opponents slot receiver, TE and Wing. I'm guessing they would line up like this against us.

Do you prepare particular bits of your offense for a specific opponent, or do you work on everything every week and then see what works in the game, and then run with that?

We have our base and tune add customize week to week depending on opponent film

We are basic out of some of the stuff our gap stuff not basic. Would we better with less? Depends. We have 3 mutiple year starting seniors on the line. Next year will probably run less. My header tells me he wants a new toy I give it to him. I'll advise if I don't think we can or are executing it. If I was header and had me as o line coach, I'd probably go with a little less. But it's been working out well.So it's a boon I'd hate to prepare for us and have been told it isn't fun.

Ya, I think the good coaches went to the JPW staff. They’re undefeated & running the SW.

Btw, looks like EBE bailed on the DTDW at my level. Literally the only reason I was worried about em was cuz they were running DTDW.

--Are you Gap On Down across the front?  Center and Tight Ends, too? No, in most situations for center is moma we like to get him to lb so if Theresa 3 tech to reach we have tackle do that block. Tight end rules vary depending on d. He'll double, tex or fan to force, go to lb. Depending on play backside end has rules too.
Our GOD is really an overall guideline rather than a blocking rule. We have specific rules for every gap hole. Then I tell them if you don't know what to do, ask GOD. Center asks momma.

 We wedge too, of course.

--From splits? Yes will wedge up to 16 inches. Drill baby drill.

--This all sounds great.  Do you find yourselves staying basic with each scheme?  For instance, when we were a Spread/DW offense, they robbed from each other.  So we could never be as good as a true Double Wing offense, and we could never be as good as a true Spread offense.  We were decent with both, instead of being great with one.  Do you consider your multiple-approach a boon or a hindrance?  I appreciate you taking the time.

We are basic out of some of the stuff our gap stuff not basic. My guys are very natural zone blockers we will see how next year's crop does.. Would we better with less? Depends. We have 3 mutiple year starting seniors on the line. Next year will probably run less. My header tells me he wants a new toy I give it to him. I'll advise if I don't think we can or are executing it. If I was header and had me as o line coach, I'd probably go with a little less. But it's been working out well.So it's a boon I'd hate to prepare for us and have been told it isn't fun.

We also have levels to encourage linemen to come to off season practice. Like martial arts belts. You can't learn to Jake break until you punch, you can't hand fight until you Jake break, same with run blocking. Guys want to earn their levels and participate.

Week 7...

The rain went away Saturday morning while we slept...we had to go indoors twice leading into the game to get any sort of practice in. The practices were pretty good...although we really couldn't tackle...

We are playing one of the week sisters in our division, actually the only week sister in our division...they have not won a game yet...and on top of that, we have played them 4 times over the years and the combined score we have beaten them by is 99-19...but last year, my Dawgs walked in expecting them to lay down for them, and they almost got beat, scoring in the 4th quarter to make it a 16-12 victory...I heard one boy say "it's only the Texans" and reminded them, they almost lost last season...oh, and these guys hate us...they think we teach our boys to play dirty...

Saturday morning, show up at the park...go through our pre-game, everything is going pretty well, except kicking...the kicks are all a little wonky....but I select the captains...the boys had already told me they want to start with the ball...we win the toss, and take the ball...they try an onside kick..we cover it at mid field and go to work...oh my film lady (who I happen to be married to) is late, so I have no film for the first drive...but we take the ball and shove it down their throats and score on WHAM...kick is good 8-0...

Film lady shows up in time to see our kick off 1st down they have five in the back field, so I push them back, they get 4 back, then a loss of 1, and then a false start...3rd and 17...they try to throw....pressure from up the middle and both edges...QB is hit as he throws and we pick it and take it to the house...we get a wonky kick and it is 14-0.

We try a medium range kick and try to beat them to the spot...it's close but they make a really nice play on the ball and their offense takes the field...we call a Safety blitz, and it works, they loose 5...but wait...our safety timed is just a little badly...offsides...1st and 5.then they lose 3, a gain of zero, a gain of 2, so they have 4th and 5...they go for it and lose a yard...we get to go on offense again...

1st and 10 from the 48...we call SLUGO...and the wheel route is wide open...43 yards to the 5...ugly throw or else the H catches it in stride and scores...he had to stop and wait for it :P we run WHAM again and get to the 1. We put the QB at X and use X as the QB (he is the back up) and call slant arrow...they cover it pretty well, so my QB decides to run...he gets stood up at the Goal line...but thats okay, my offensive line comes behind and pushes him in, another wonky kick, but it is good....22-0.

We kick off, they return it to mid field...1st and 10, they are going to throw again...they take a huge 10 yard sack...2nd down they get 6 back, third down they go backwards a yard...so on 4th down, they decide to punt...right to one of my return guys...and he returns it for a TD...another wonky kick...and its 28-0.

We kick off again...1st and 10, no gain, 2nd down, they muff the snap and we recover on their 31 with about a minute and a half left...first down, fast screen to H for 6, we try and call time out so we can move some ball guys around and let someone else get some touches...the crew doesn't let us because we are up by 28, we burn about 20 seconds figuring out they are not going to give us the time out...so we call the play from the sideline, jet sweep....goes for 19 yards as time expires...down to their 6...

Half time...at the half, they have run 15 plays and netted -17 yards and turned the ball over twice. We have run about 12 (no film of the first drive) and netted 123. And we are going to be in the fast clock the entire second half, the clock only stops if the losing team calls TO or there is an injury time out...we talk to the boys at half time, telling them to keep up the intensity, get the shut out...we also tell them we are going to get some of the receivers and backs that don't normally get touches, to get touches...

We kick off they field it and return it to their 35...run 4 plays for a net of 2 yards and turn it over on downs...

1st down, we run counter to our back up H, he goes the wrong way and gets 3 yards...they we throw a fast screen to our Y, who the QB doesn't fully trust, but he makes the catch and takes it 14 yards...then we run WHAM to H, and the F misses the WHAM, gain of 0...we try SLUGO again...QB just over throws it...so we line up for a 32 yard FG...another wonky kick...but they hit our kicker as he is landing...no flag...end of the 3rd quarter...they take over at the 20.

1st down...lose a yard, second down, false start...2nd down again...they run a counter off of jet action, everyone has overpursued...one of our safeties makes the tackle after a gain of 26...they have their first first down and a total of 5 yards total offense. Next play they get one...the play after that our MIKE beats his block and slaps the ball out of the QBs hand as he is attempting to toss it for a sweep...ball on the ground...MIKE covers it 6 yards behind the LOS...

We get the ball back with about 3 minutes left...we run 4 plays net 16 yards...and with about 45 seconds on the clock, I tell my boys to line up and shake hands...

One game left...if we win we are in the playoffs...if we lose we need help (the canceled game made everything crazy), guess we get ready to win this weekend...had to shake the practice schedule up...supposed to get another 2 inches of rain on Wednesday....

The biggest issue I have from learning from printed material is that I always end up with more questions after reading it.  (As anyone can see on this forum.). I find DVDs usually more helpful and though I still have questions, they're usually fewer.  I find that books help augment DVDs, not vice versa.  Coach Wyatt does a fantastic job with his DVDs and printed material.  So does Jack Gregory.  I'd take a look at what both have done, and see where you could do better.  It'd be a heckuva product.

The number one question I get at the clinics or from phone calls is, "How do you teach...." whatever it is.  Doesn't matter if it's about our Double Wing, Split 4-4, Turnovers, P.A.I.N! Program, drills or practice plan.  It all comes back to "How do you teach a kid to..."  If you can assemble something like that and put in on a DVD, I think you'll have something productive and really helpful, not just for youth coaches but for all coaches who are looking for more expedient ways to get an approach that is understandable to players and is easily taught by coaches.  Someone really should put out a DVD series like that....

We call that the HIM blocking scheme. Lol. You block HIM, Joey's got HIM, and Jimmy's got HIM. That's just lazy coaching. Must not be the same staff from 2016 WBR then. They ran a nice tight DW.

I hate the point system. It's supposed to create more competitive brackets, I guess. I haven't seen it.

IF I were a betting man, I'd bet that you'd be playing SCL in SCL. I could be wrong tho.
