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.
In this installment of our Offense Playbook Series, we will be looking at the play calling procedures you will use with your team. This is the part of building your playbook that determines your huddle and how you will get your information into your players.
In our second part of the Offense Playbook Series, we will look at creating our team’s football goals. These goals will vary depending on the type of offense and team that you have, but the thought process behind each one is what is important.
I am in the process of re-designing our offensive playbook. I am going through each section and will be cleaning things up, adding new things and just generally making things better. As I go through this process, I want to discuss all of the different pieces of the playbook and different ways to think about your offense. One of the first parts of almost any playbook is the Philosophy section. Even thought these typically come at the beginning of a playbook, and should set the tone for the rest of the offense, they are often overlooked and feel tacked on.
