Test of the Scribd Service

Gentlemen, sharing PDF documents and playbooks on the net just got a whole lot more interesting.

I present you with SCRIBD.  A basic account is free, and you can see what it can do below.

Enjoy...  but watch posting stuff that's copyrighted ...  they do take things down from time to time.

A link to the full-size document is HERE.  You can zoom in, scroll, and also get to the online document using the controls on the the viewer below, too.

Why You Will Never See Me Trying to Establish the Run from the ShotGun


Check out this video.  I guess you really do need a Tim Teebow to make that sh*t work...

Gee, that Midline is slooooooooowwwww....

Check out the stances of the linemen...  of the "Dive Back..."   they're all standing up, for Pete's sake!!!  No wonder I thought the slo-mo was first, lol!

Below is what Midline is supposed to look like...

Below are some cuts from when I was at MHS.  There are four freshmen on the OLine...  and you'll notice they don't stand up and play titties like the shotgun linemen do.  I guess that's why we had so much down-field blocking...  Of course, we're running ISV instead of Midline, but you get the point.  You don't have to have everyone block-back if you can hit it quick. 

Props to Coach Adams and Coach Crawford who were doing the line at the time.


One more thing to think about...  if your backfield ain't the fastest in the conference, do you want to run a slow-developing offense that hits East/West... or do you want to attack that defense North & South?

You make the call.
