The Spread Offense is arguably the most popular style of offense in football right now. It is run at every level from youth football to the NFL. The spread is typically run out of a Shotgun formation with three, four or five receivers. The reasons for running the spread offense are different for each style of offense. Some teams, like Auburn with Gus Malzahn, ran the spread offense to run the ball inside the tackles where they gain a numbers advantage. Other teams, like the Indianapolis Colts with Peyton Manning, ran the spread to get more receivers involved in the passing game. Still, more teams will run a modified Wing-T out of the Shotgun spread, similar to how Florida ran their offense with Urban Meyer and Tim Tebow.
