If there any coaches that know me reading this, they are probably confused by the title of this article. I have made it no secret that I think we should go as fast as humanly possible when we are running our offense. So why would I tell you to get into a huddle? Because it works, it gives you an advantage, and it can slow the defense down.
My favorite pass concept of the past five years has to be the Double Post concept. A well run post is one of the most difficult routes to cover, so my thought is why not run 2!? The Double Post concept is something that has been around the NFL and College for a long time. In the West Coast, it is run as a Dino Double Post and a wrinkle on it was made famous by Steve Spurrier and the Florida Gators.
We have been running some form of packaged plays since 2013 when I saw a clinic talk by Mike Emendorfer from UW-Platteville. Back then it was on the cutting edge of what teams were doing, but not it has become very advanced and teams at every level are running packaged plays, and RPO’s are all over as well. Our use of RPO’s and Packaged Plays has evolved tremendously from our meager beginnings in 2013, but there are some aspects that have never changed because they work so well for teaching and understanding the concepts involved.
Tempos are an important part of your offense if you are a No Huddle team. We have been a no huddle for the last five years and will continue to be for the foreseeable future as we believe that dictating the tempo of the game gives us an advantage.
