Chalk Talk with Coach Flo


yeah you’ve reached the head coach’s
corner a chalk talk with Coach Flo we’re calling this.
I appreciate you spending some time we’re going to talk some football
and I’m gonna you know just briefly just I’ve been working in college for 27
years between being a head football coach and being an offensive coordinator
and a special teams coordinator and and all those types of things and coached
every position on the offensive side of the ball so we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna take some time a little time each week talk a little football we’ll talk
some offense we’ll talk some special teams will change it off week in and
week out and hopefully get some good feedback out there doing it so long
enough time I’m not wanting to say that I know at all I’ve done a lot of
research of how I really great coaches I’ve had a lot of really great mentors
I’ve learned a lot of really really great things and what we’re going to
talk about today is we’re going to talk about we’re gonna talk about an empty
passing concept that I really liked I enjoyed running in my time when I was
the head football coach with William Paterson University just tell you go
quick a quick synopsis a little quick about myself played football and I own a
college in New Rochelle and the late 80s played for coach Crocker I started
coaching as a student worker worked there until 97 left there 97 went to 90
went to FDU Madison and Morristown in 98 when backed Iona and 99 worked with Fred
Mariani from 99201 had a great experience coordinator special teams
coach the receivers back up my alma mater and then you know – I had a great
opportunity to go to LuAnn Patterson I had worked for Larry Oh Riko at after
you Madison the one season he had been over Hawaii
Patterson I got a chance to meet Phil Longo they recommended me for the
position and from there I spent all my time from o22 said
tene there from Oh 207 I was an assistant worked under Rico staff they
coached me ll like me L came in from Rutgers worked with him for three years
amazing experience working with him Eddie Stinson and a great group of
coaches coach stepped down at the end of the seven seas and I took over in a late
as the interim head coach and coach there is a head coach until 17 amassed
33 wins which is second all-time to Gerry Gallagher who is in the Hall of
Fame at William Paterson and you know just an amazing experience at 125
seniors in ten years and a lot of guys doing real well now coach and wise I
actually just posted a my coaching tree which will be on my website which will
be on this video which is Jeff camps calm pretty extensive coaches free of
coaches that are coaching high school football college football on all levels
also got some student workers and some young men that are working the NFL so
been doing this a long time been around a lot of people I thought this was an
opportunity to just to talk some football and you can shoot me questions
you have answers I’ll try and be as thorough as possible we’ll spend about
probably about close to about 25 or so minutes here go through the hitch with
introductory concept what I’m going to do is what I did was I kind of posted
here on the board we’re going to start with just some general stuff in terms of
how how we how we in my time at William Paterson as the offensive coordinator
call the offense so you call it any way you want this is how we called it like I
said I probably stole out of this stuff from other people research wise so we
ran a West Coast West Coast offense then then derived until the West Coast no
huddle and then we made it more of a spread but we always kind of kept the
West Coast philosophy the West Coast velocity in Miami had always been a
you always had to tighten and put in a flanker in a split end had a slot you
were multi-dimensional and running back so you could take you running back she
could put them in slots you can move them out as receivers you don’t really
have to change a person I don’t go to a four or five wide set so a lot of the
running backs we’d recruited we we knew we’re good pass receivers because we put
them out around a lot you know we were looking for guys that were going to
catch 50 balls over the course of the season and probably 150 times touch the
ball hundred times so that’s kind of the West Coast offense the offense in seven
my first seven out of ten years of William Paterson produced three
quarterbacks down the first quarterback Matt Marshall I broke a ton of records
quarterback wise he became the all-time leading passer he graduated run agrestic
came in from newton up in Morris County he was with me for five years he became
the all-time leading passer and and then we brought in to Austin fellows down
from Central Jersey and he had a great freshman campaign and he was Rookie of
the Year so you know we’re trying to do it the West Coast system and you’re
really trying to spread the ball sideline the sideline
you’re trying to spread the ball side on the sideline pretty much you know we go
with like a 15-year a box from the line of scrimmage a lot of short passes flat
routes swing route spot routes head routes slant routes a lot of short stuff
short pick pick pick pick always say always tell the quarterback take what
the defense gives you and that’s what we did we just took the short stuff and
then what happens what happened would be we play teams and
we play we’d come up and play press and then that’s when we take our shots so we
tried to dictate the pace obviously running the ball which we’ll talk about
a little bit and we’re gonna try and do is we’ll try and do a pass concept I’ll
do a run concept with you and then work on a different use of just video and
then I’ll come back we’ll do a little special teams talk special teams as well
you can answer whatever questions you want so just kind of dive in here a
little bit it’s a route trait you could do this two different ways
we did it as a route tree we also did this code words if you want to go really
really fast and then have wristbands which we’ve done you can cop a code word
so I’ll show you in a second when I drop the play what the code word is and then
what the route tree is the route sugar is real simple
zero down the nine your what your odd numbers were routes that went inside actually yeah your odd numbers were the
routes that went inside and your even numbers were the ones that went outside
with the exception of you know yeah somewhat so you got the zero was paid
the one cut was a six yard hitch the two three so 0 1 2 and 3 or your 3 step
routes the quarterback you know taking a three step drop and throwing the ball we
always said 6 yards we always said pretty much six coming back to five and
a half if it was a hitch that he would plant and come back down handle the bowl
will be in his chest the time had always worked out in the quarterback would take
one two three and throw the ball there was no wasted time there was no wasted
steps if you were throwing a hitch with your throat of slant one two three throw
the ball if you were throwing it out one two three throw the out another
difference the out was the out wasn’t a it wasn’t a square out it was just a
round out so you know it would be at about five and a half round yourself
into the route as opposed to running the square out the timing just worked better
with the round out so that’s how we call down for cut now you stuff to get to a
little more five-step concept your fork up was a fake 10-yard out rolling into
that 10-yard out for eight your five cut was a 12 the 10-yard curl pretty much
just a double round of the hitch so your hitch was really six coming back to five
and a half well your your your five cut was 12 come back to ten the quarterback
is taking a five step drop on that the six caught was a comeback was thrown it
to the sideline 14 coming back to twelve seven cut was a
dig so he would he would stem on the day graphics the receiver would stem inside
if he had press coverage get vertical and then forty and then twelve to
fourteen Matt twelve fourteen so he’d be twelve here he’d be fourteen there so if
you run pretty much like a post dick is what we called it and then you got your
corner out we said we said ten to twelve but we meant there were the same type of
thing you get a stem you come here at ten you stick in here in twelve you
stick it there you always stick your route you know where they’d work
rounding into the routes they were sticking around so then no I was skinny
post was a nine cut so you can call around stab way so I’ll leave it up here
for a second if you want to write this down because you’ll see in a second one
I talked to you about the route concept you could call it two different ways if
you want to go wristbands like I said which we’ve done we would have it on the
wristband we would just signal inverse being playing number 55 and then you
know players would look on the wristband and see 55 may see a route tree will it
see the play call using the round tree if you want to go really fast then you
use a code word and then the player is then have to know the whole play with
the code word which I’ll talk to you about in a second so that’s what that
was they have colors we use colors to to designate certain packages so for
example we’re going to throw a three step we use green and red we always said
red use the are to the right green would be to the left so that helped us with
pass protection as well which I’ll talk to you about in a second what what that
meant what the quarterbacks read was the color usually told the quarterback what
side he was thrown to where the read side was and told the line with the
protection was there’s a lot of things that were said with just one word which
obviously a lot of people are pushing now the one word type of system so you
have the colors and then you get your other colors arms as plaques in yellow
was a misdirection black and brown was run so our running
plays were Brown is the are and brown to the right use the Allen black to the
left just simple simple stuff make it easy for the pliers on a lot of times on
the wristband you know we’d have its section where the running plays there
right we’re colored in and brown on the right side of the wristband the colors
in and black they call it on the left side of the wristband was colored in
black so the players know immediately looked at the wristband once they looked
at the left side of history and they knew what the play was and it was going
to the left okay so that’s how your colors work out and then what I wrote up
here is code words that we use for our three-step concepts for them so saw a
three-step concepts we use college football teams so affordab zero round
was a fade one covers a hitch the two was a slant that three was it out so we
used for him Harvard Syracuse and Oklahoma
and there was a concept so if you’re gonna run double fades if you run double
fades and double Alps and that was four they were complementary routes which ran
on one side you ran to the other side now I was out of a two by two said if
you were gonna run Harvard which was which is hitches you were gonna run
hitches on the outside and seams in the middle which is pretty much the same
routes on the hash if you’re running Syracuse which was a to cut yet double
slant and doubles double diagonal and we’ll get into all that stuff if he had
Al Kut Oklahoma a double out double seems so three and one were the same for
the inside guy just different for the outside guy and that meant we mirrored
it so we would run one concept to the right one concept to the left so it was
the same content and why we do that was if we came out we call red and we were
throwing two right and maybe we were getting some sort of quarter quarter
half and we didn’t like what we thought to the right we didn’t have to check out
of the play get to another play quarterback now could revert to the left
he could just change the color he could say check opposite change the protection
and we throw to left alright so that’s pretty much the nuts and bolts of you
know three using some code words a lot of
stuff you’ve heard a lot of this stuff is just a lot of different everyone
picking something up from someone else I’ve been fortunate from from 2008 2017
we pretty much ran this type of system my last three years were a little bit
more triple-option because our talent or I would say our personnel kind of
changed in terms of what we have we more running backs you know this offense is
critical given tonight if you have a tight end you could run the West Coast
office as far as I’m concerned you love that two and three times so you have
multiple packages you know very similar to to what you see on on on TV and the
NFL with the teams in the NFL that you use a multiple package Tennessee is a
perfect example to three tight ends a lot of that that’s not West Coast system
so one tight end is ideal because it allows you to do some things which I’ll
show you in a second all right that’s why you know when team said to derive to
the spread and I kind of pulled the tight end out put another receiver sorry
so I’ll just move this side for a second so you could jot this down if you want
but like I said if you have any questions you shoot me an email shoot me
a text and I’ll try and help you out like I said had the opportunity 2017 I’m
sorry I forgot one one season 2017 season was my last season at William
Paterson I was still working full time at William Paterson till the end of this
past spring so the 2018 season our work that came for my buddy Danny Garrett and
I was the offensive coordinator there for him so I got a chance to learn a
little bit different system but work with some great guys and some great
young men so just trying to give back now to the game based on kind of where
I’m at okay so we’re going to move on to the next thing which is the concept
we’re going to talk about today so we drop the formation for it and I’m going to drop the defense we’re
gonna just start with a two shell and it okey three four Sam Mike well buck okay
okay so we’re just going to start off real simple okay so I kind of went into
the kind of talked about although I mean there’s so many more pieces to the
overall concept of the offense that I’m privy to and a lot of this massage to
take a step back you know it’s a good evolution of years for me personally
because I’ve gone from a running shoot system as a player with Rob Spence
coach Crocker I had then gone to working with coach Rico at at after you who
played for coach Mariani at Lehigh and he was running a little bit at West
Coast multiple stuff then I had gone the work with Coach Mariani the next three
years he was running that multiple stuff took a lot of that stuff back to William
Patterson when he did that with with Coach Errico again and when Coach Snell
came in we’re a little bit more standard personnel and then you know we kind of
derived to that so it’s it’s kind of been there the whole time
we’re just we’ve been very fortunate dumped some pretty good tight ends to
help us with the game so what we got here is real simple
we call this this formation for us we would call Ruby can’t spell we call it
Ruby that was just the formation for empty for us and you and you know I’ll
go through I mean all this is your plank or your Z’s your flanker you got your
split in you got your your third receiver we call them a W and you got
your tight end you’ve got your quarterback you got your now your R is
actually your running back so kind of getting back to our saying before it
allows you to stay in ten personnel and not have to take a guy out and the
defense changes their personnel it allows you to do things you can run Jack
sweet with him you can put an emotional run zone read you can run quarterback
read there’s so many things you can do
without having to change the personnel and if so many people hung up on let’s
if you got this guy this RT you know he can run and he can catch and he can Bach
and those are the types of guys you want on your system because it just makes it
that much harder to defend and then obviously the more guys you have you
don’t need this guy you’ll meet a W now now if you have a you have a two-headed
monster a tailback you know maybe one guys are really good runner maybe one
guys are really good receiver I was tell you put the receiver to the strong side
put the runner or weak side makes sense you can run Jeff sweeping this side with
cougar blockers going to the right you got your standard three-four defense
okay we got a simple empty concept okay so that’s what we’re going to talk about
for today all right and the empty concept is really simple it’s and I’m
gonna talk though as slow as I possibly can to help you understand why okay what
what we’re calling it is we’re gonna it’s going to be cold to whip nine five
get open all right so instead of Gio I’m not gonna abbreviate okay or the name of
this would be what we would do it would be it would be 55 as a number so you use
a number for it or you could just say the code word for this is cross and web
so cross the whip or two different options so there’s a cross concept
there’s a whip concept so the whip and what’s Wisconsin so there’s a bunch of different ways you
can go about do it so you gonna use a wristband we call it to whip 95 get open
and the routes were always always you always read the route concepts the the
the first part of the actual wording was always the two inside most guys so if
you were a two by two set it would be the two guys it was a three by one set
there’d be no inside guy it would be the number three guy and the outside guy so
in this concept because it’s empty the two inside guys and we were number them
we would say he’s one two three four and five and we always said that going right
though it was always strong strong side so if you want Ruby left it’d be one the
five going left to right it’s Ruby right it’s one the five going right to left
hopefully that makes sense for you okay so to whip is going to be in this
concept between three and four because there are two inside most guys on the
formation then you read the routes from strong side the weak side so here’s your
nine okay here’s your five and here’s your get open okay so in this particular
concept the players knew that they wanted to be the W because he was the
primary reading this concept so that’s how they just knew that it couldn’t be
nine five get open because you wouldn’t have an outside receiver energy or get
open round which I’ll talk to you about a second okay so that was the way to
call when you had an arrhythmia so this would be on the wristband and it with a
color for empty for us was maroon so on the wristband it would be colored in the
room it would say to wit nine five get open you want to go really really fast
you don’t have a lot of time you go 55 Wisconsin and that’s the difference
fifty-five Wisconsin why would you say 55 Wisconsin because Phi
would tell everybody that we’re a finite system means five guys out around it
would tell align the second five would say there’s only five guys protected so
that’s where fifty five was and Wisconsin was the round and you just
knew that Wisconsin meant to whip nine five get open so that’s when you know
you got players that really buy into the system and I really get it I’m gonna
found that players will pick that stuff up people say ah well how they gonna
remember that well they remember that and then there’s
a hand signal for all this so you know we were you know for us if we wanted to
run cross we would do that if we won the wrong whip we do that so if you want to
do 55 you know for us or empty protection we put if we’re going to
signal from the sideline we’d go here hands up on our head like this and that
told them that we were going to be in maroon and then we’d go chest here and
then we do this so this should tell you this 55 maroon 55 whip and that was the
concept that’s if you’re on two minutes system and you want to try and go really
fast so the concept really is simple you know we’re doing here is you’re trying
to read this window now obviously teams not going to play cover two to this you
know that probably may bring this guy down below this guy over you know
there’s other things they can do but I’ve my my time I’m seeing teams even
come out play quarters on the snap of the ball so what happens here is first
we’ll talk about the route what you’re getting is a two up concept so he’s the
tight end is to the strong side so he would always be the deeper guy and on a
cross route and the arm who’s on the weak side would be the under guy and
across route but because there’s no across that pretty much running to a
point we used to teach them run like you’re coming across the field where you
could tap the guy’s hand and go back so this guy here would take an inside
release to be in a SAM cuz he’ll be a five technique here and he would get to
a depth of about six yards and he whipped back flat this are
we would usually have more to walk because we could motion a little bit
back and forth we would do that to see was mana zone but we would tell that
aura to line up about two yards from the end man on the line so that he could do
the same thing in return okay you’re non-english it grew support
you speak was the skin call so he’s getting vertical to tank
speed post your five was concept five now understand this this round I’ll tell
you you can figure out a way to run this round you can convert every third down
conversion you got a guy back here that can make the right read you’re in good
shape because this is especially against the cover to look you can see the window
to throw the ball understand your Z receiver if you got you’re used to do it
was your ax was the guy that could take the top off the comers he was your fast
guy cuz a lot of times he’s your weak side guy your zine was your possessing
that I can catch the ball so this guy keeps this round skinny he’s got this
guy and this guy covered and if this guy is a threat to go vertical well he’s got
to bail out in the snap of the ball cuz he’s got to be aware of the deep bow
that opens up in low field you got double crossing routes these guys are
gonna squeeze and then they’re gonna return that’s what this guy comes into
play now if this Sam is on the ball fine but more than likely he’s gonna be out
here inside that’s what I would call to get open round so you want to get
vertical one two three stick here to make it look like you’re running out and
come underneath the quarterbacks read the quarterback would take the snap he
this even though it’s a five-step concept it’ll be a three-step read he’s
reading right in this window but this over here is only if there was blitz if
he felt uncomfortable I got to tell you it probably in all the years I ran this
route I don’t know if I had a quarterback throw over here once this
route was Matt if you wanted to check to a three-step concept on the backside
like an exit route so if this guy was there
I was squad and this guy was down pretty snap and you weren’t really comfortable
and you wanted to throw a hitch he could turn to the X on the left give him some
sort of hand signal aboard everything – right take the snap until the bowl left
that’s what that route was for but we wanted to run a curl to keep him honest
okay and then the quarterbacks taking the stand and he’s going one two threes
taking three steps okay next up he’s going one two three so he’s now in line
of throat he’s a righty he’s in line of throw to the right and what’s happening
is he’s reading this guy okay we call that we coach Coach hinky my
quarterbacks coach for the number of years and then coach aggressive who
worked for me would call in a Halle Berry readers you know based on kind of
you know you see its front you see the front you see the back whatever this
person opens up okay so basically what you’re looking for and
you’re looking for this defender to open and turn receiver goes underneath that’s
what the ball gets thrown so if you see its back you’re banging the ball in
there if you see it’s fun now you got a bike you got a bypass that neither throw
the post or one of the wimps more than like would still be the post but we
would always for the most part this guy here was a dynamic player for us you
know we ran a lot of go out go out go out go bubble or goes so this guy was
always opening to cover this so the quarterback then was buying it right
here in the hole sometimes he may carry it something then this guy break it off
and come here in the bowl you can see the hole I’m gonna feel really great
against cover to and that’s you know that’s the concept of that so now from a
protection standpoint because it’s funny you know I was always
always being an offensive guy you know when I first I cut off into tackle so
you know I was always sort of plays but I thought a place to throw how to
protect it first okay and as I became a head coach it’s funny I interview guys
that talk to guys and unable to talk about all these glorious concepts and
it’s okay how you gonna protect that and they look at you so if you can’t protect
it you can’t throw it okay so here you go you got your 55 concept which spent
five guys out on the route was the first five the second five told the
quarterback told the line by man protection so we did was if you had
fives on you didn’t matter if they were fives or fours
all right these tackles here were required to test it so although it was a
five-step concept they would get in their stance they would kick off the
line one good step and then they would play aggressive football so in this
particular concept they knew that it wasn’t necessarily five it was more of a
three step type of type of variety but he can’t get he’d get the end and nose
and then these guys would duel read or guards were usually are better athletes
up front an offensive line I wasn’t necessarily I shouldn’t say that cuz you
know playing tackle you gotta have good athletes so you just gotta be smart
enough to understand so women double read it so maybe he’d come out here
look here to here didn’t matter because that was the quarterbacks read so if
that guy blitz the quarterback threw the ball alright same thing here he would
step here look one two two all right in this particular look based on the way it
is you’re just gonna get a five-minute rush you know if they send a guy they
send a sixth guy and I which we’ll talk about in a second okay then the
quarterbacks got to adjust his read so to speak so for example if I’ll bring it
up now if a team were to do this and send him and this guy’s was running a
whip this guy would know we practice it that he would stop right
here and the quarterback would see to coming here and the quarterback instead
of going to this side he’d immediately citizen boom throw the ball right there
and we’ll just take the two yards okay such a to whip nine five get
open-concept all right and then like I said that’s how you recall always
remember you’re calling the route to whip inside most guys in this case it’s
number three and four and so on and so forth
alright so I’m going to just throw this up against the five a four-man front
protection wise okay so they got a four-man box alright now I said
something earlier about your tight end the reason why I was is beautiful to
have a tight end in this system is because if you want to keep the tight
end the block and have an extra blocker kind of messes around with the defense a
little bit especially if he’s on the ball so if you’re gonna protect this we
tell our tackle on or outside he’s got him on outside he’s got him he’s here
and then these two guys would be responsible for those two guys okay so
if we were gonna protect this just the way it was with no roll downs or
anything like that we know all that other stuff is gonna happen well we’ll
talk about that we’re just kind of giving you the generic sense of it that
was the protection okay all right so now let’s just talk about the course concept
and then we’ll talk about role in the covers and then we’re done for today
so the cross concept you called the same way now it’s called
to cross 9 5 geo abbreviate or 55 cross or Cleveland they cross and then the
code word was Cleveland and just like you had Wisconsin so the quarterback was
on the line of scrimmage for example before and we were going to run Jeff
sweep and he wanted to check out of it he’d go easy easy easy I mean we were
checking the play he’d go maroon 55 Wisconsin and like I said before if you
look at that you think maroon ok it’s an empty concept the line now knows that
got blocked those five guys that cut outs are done 55 now at Wisconsin total
with the route was to one side most guys whip get a skinny post a curl and it get
open around okay now you got your Chris concept so same thing we ask that our to
be in tight we had sort of about three yards from the end in our line of
scrimmage now we said if you remember what I said
before we said that we want the strong side guy in this case was Ruby right
strengthen her formations this way he’s gonna be over the round he sets the
depth at around the depth is about six we always tell the tight end that’s set
in the depth when we teach the progression it’s under over under over
you always hang that to the tight end under over under over under meant under
him but you want to try and get all over him all right under him over him just
like this so he’s at six and he’s at five and a half so the tight end because
he’s a strength guy he sets the depth the or guy sets the mesh so we wanted
them that come to the point where they were brush and rollers nospace got
understand with the whip it’s about running the whip all the way in and
whipping out to the point where they’re smacking hands with the cross it’s about
running to the point where they hit and shoulder-to-shoulder okay
here you got your nine skinny not over here well I keep it skinny so you can
occupy these two guys you got your five keep it tight
when I can play these two guys and here’s your getting up around that you
read quarterbacks reads right there all right so if they want to send a game
here and they want to switch you got to practice with your lines so it’s close
we would on me when I was a king that spring we probably spent a good ten
fifty minutes of practice me and Joe Beckham on my my great assistant we
spend switches at all and so just because he’s at he’s out here in a nine
and he’s got him doesn’t mean that I’m more than likely he’s not gonna slam all
the way in here but if he’s in a three he could do this and he can do that if
he’s a two I you know he he may not come across here you know he may stay here
but he could do this where he can go here anything so you’re gonna see games
you’re gonna see games teams is just not gonna stand there that’s not what
defenses do all right so now so now your concept same concept so this guy would
give vertical at about three steps and he spots the bend like he’s going
outside like he’s running at eight to ten you around we get him to open up and
Bank here’s the throw right here so now because the cross have a better option
so was whip he’s reading get open to post to whip because the whip comes last
it gets it clears out last but more than likely it’s gonna be get open to post
with the cross now he’s reading because of how it happens here to here to you so
because it happens quicker so now the R is actually imply we don’t really throw
the why because he’s going back in the other direction alright now I’ll show
you something really really sneaky so team what teams started due to us to
take this away and you know we got you know ryan greta quarterback at the time
they’re really nice job think it was Morris fell a couple years ago a long
time ago star a couple of years ago and then we’ll end on this note for today so
what happened was the team started to get alloy antsy
like we don’t want you to get that cross around we don’t want that gallop around
to be open we’re gonna force you to a post
well now you need a guy back here it’s got Seth you know he’s got he’s gotta
get enough for up some practice where he sees it and he sees that safety coming
down to rob where they’re going from some sort of quarters to cover one or
they’re going from some sort of cover to 2-0 whatever the case is so and you’ll
see like he watches them this guy watches the rough film he’ll know the
team’s will do this sometimes you’ll see this safety here shame or on the on the
end of the tackle so you know that they’re gonna roll the covers there’s
keys you’ll look for you know if you see this guy maybe he’s he’s there are
different levels he’s higher he’s lower stuff like that he still goes through
his reads so let’s say it’s to cross he’s on there he’s over he’s on there
he’s over did you get open size exaggerated there’s a skinny post
there’s a curl now it started to happen is I think we hit for me it for a couple
touchdowns later in the season in 2013 or 14 is now what happened was this
backer he was on the ball he would drop okay he would bow said we’d go to like a
cover three show almost we’re now a three robber where he was shooting to
take that away he even dropped he were dropped so their goal was to take that
right away so now the quarterback does II receiver I was telling players that
there’s the goal post when you run a skinny poster should be
outside the goal post as opposed to a post route where you want to be at the
post so we said one a post we wanted you
once an outside goalpost we said skinny you should be outside the goalposts so
now what was happening was you never do some straight game here you know we
would have it all blocked up we were five-man protection they were
just rocking the coverage and they were bringing this guy in here to take this
away and sure enough man we’ve heard Laura
here hit that skinny post with a Morrisville game two thousand thirteen
or fourteen we hit that twice four touchdowns and the safety just couldn’t
get over and enough time now obviously the quarterback throws the ball here now
the quarterback now the safety can get over there but if your receiver runs the
right route you practice this enough time that’s this that’s why we’re on the
nine cut the guy like sometimes guy like well why is here under the rock are you
wasting around no you run the nine cut so you can take you want to try and
occupy the two defenders now what I said earlier about the West Coast offense
what we’re trying to do we’re trying to spread the field vertically and
horizontally in roughly a 20 on box so on the routes cross route swing round
Swit round spot route slant routes out wells you name it that’s what we’re
banging in this box so you’re going to come out and we used to tell it tell a
quarterback all the time you make it six you make it four you may get eight you
may get two you may get one you may get a negative and after a while you’re
gonna get the 35-yard yeah you know uh everyone wants 235 yarder but you know
perfect example I mean look at Kansas City Kansas City is a perfect example
against um against Tennessee they took all the short stuff quarterback
scrambled it took the out stuff that took the outside they took it all what
they were trying to do is get Tennessee to get and demand coverage when they got
in the man coverage they had an advantage if you got a guy out here and
a guy out here that can catch the ball you got an advantage we had a young man
there for a couple years that was your all-time leading receiver at William
Palace and back-to-back guys the second guy got a tryout with the Jets this guy
over here very applier so if you got two guys out there
that are good players then teams got a you know they gotta make a decision I
make a decision but at the end of the day all that’s windows Ruxin is to try
and get the ball here so if it’s zone and you run this route so they talk
about that if it’s man they continue across the field if it’s zone then you
got to settle down you tell these guys settle down between the backer and the
background so they would run across the field they return and stomp and settle
and now the quarterback could look right in the window he’s right here looking
for the ball okay and that’s why we used to put him at two yards to put him in
motion and back sometimes cuz why you bill of tell if it’s a man or zone you
know sometimes teams would tip the hat you go motion this guy goes with you
you know George man okay so once again this is our concept we’re calling this
to cross nine five get open in this particular personnel because we have one
running back on one tight end we call this ten personnel
I’m sorry 11 personnel which basically means one tight end one one running back
we would like to try and stance as much as possible because it allows us then
the most in him in the backfield and then run powers and counters and jet
sweeps and all that stuff and then if we get this guy here is the runner too that
would be able to traditional 21 personnel which is a typical pro per
Sanel it’s amazing what you can do with standard personnel I mean when you don’t
have all those receivers this is what you want to look at when you don’t have
all those tight ends whether you take this cut out you put another receiver
that’s why we call it a multiple West Coast offense and that’ll be on the
screen when you see it on the youtube channel you’ll see kind of my experience
and like I said I’m not trying to think I know more than everyone else I’m just
sharing with you some of the stuff that I’ve learned over the years this route
here was Brendan but for us it was always that empty it was always our Ruby
it was just a matter of maybe we had a person
or maybe was on the line or off the line and you called it like I said three
different things you call to whip nine five get open or you could call 55
Wisconsin or you can call to cross nine five get open
you call that 55 Cleveland and then you always use the color maroon and then
that told everyone it was maroon was gonna be an empty concept so think about
this again and we’ll end on this so if we said maroon 55 was Ruby right in a
room 55 Cleveland the maroon told us we were an empty 55 said was a five man out
God man protection Cleveland and because it was Ruby right
he was reading to the right alright so hopefully you got something out of
today’s session and like I said I hope I hope if you have questions you just
shoot me information I’ll have my email on there and what we’ll do is we’ll come
back I’ll come back the next time and we’ll we’ll put some very issues off of
this will show you some different look protection wise next week off of this
and then from there we’ll move to little run we’ll do a little running concept
and then from there we’ll go to a special team so we’ll do a pass
we’ll do a run we’ll do some specialties alright once again Gerry flora
talk with code flaw
