   Installing the Gun Offense

1. The Mesh and Reading the 5 in the
   Gun Offense
2. Mechanics of the Read Game
3. Running The Jet Series
4. The Quarterback Run Game
       Keys To Being Successful
 Train Your   Kids In The Off-Season

   They Can’t Consistently Stop A Play,
 If
  Keep Running It

 Don’t Over Coach Or   Over Analyze

 Be Prepared and    Prepare Your Kids
            Myths of the Gun
 The Gun Is A Pass Only Offense:
Similar to the Run-and-Shoot in the 80’s, people
  perceive the gun as pass first
 The Gun Is A Finesse Offense
You can run a power offense from the gun!
 The Snap Is Too Easy To Fumble
How many snaps have you fumbled from under
  center? How many of those did you lose? Gun-1
  mishandled snap every 201 plays: 1 Lost. Under
  Center-1 mishandled snap every 119 plays: 6
  Lost
 Your line must be in a 2 point stance in the Gun
You can operate from a 3 point stance.
 You can’t block the box if you spread the field.
        Advantages of The Gun
   Defenses Have To Account For the QB As A
    Runner
   Every Play Can Become An Option Play
   QB Has Easier Pre And Post Snap Reads
   QB Already Has Depth In The Pass Game
   Offense Can Read Rather Than Block A
    Defender In The Run Game
   QB Works Downhill As Opposed To Uphill From
    Under C
   You get your athletes the football in open space
   Basketball on grass, with fast break potential

       Under Center




   The defense loads the box!
Comparing Gun To Being
    Under Center

          In the spread gun, we open up
          the box.
       Statistically Speaking
 We have averaged 6.2   yards a rush from
  the gun over 4 years
 IS Zone from the gun: 6.7 yards w/ the TB
  and 7.9 w/ the QB
 IS Zone under Center: 5.1 yards w/ the TB
  and no direct QB run
 From the gun we average 7.1 yards per
  play. Under Center: 6.3 and 5.3 per rush
        The Gun is Versatile
 You   can run the gun from virtually any
  offense
 You can be either pass dominated or run
  dominated from the gun
 Nearly every personnel package can be
  tailored to the gun
 You can use the gun as a change-up or as
  a full-time offense

    Why Your QB Will Love The Gun!
   He has a wider peripheral field of vision for pre-
    snap reads.
   Every time he meshes with a back he will be
    moving downhill.
   Your QB will not trip over the centers foot.
   Your QB will have more opportunities to carry
    the football.
   Your QB already has depth in the pass game.
   Your QB will be able to see blitzes quicker and
    throw hot.
       QB Pre Snap Alignment
 QB  Aligns at 4.5 yards from the center
 Feet are slightly staggered with throwing
  foot slightly in front
 Hands are comfortable, with fingers
  spread
 QB brings the snap through the third hand
 QB Snaps Eyes to Read
     Running Back Alignment
 RB Lines  Up 1.5 to 2 Yards Behind QB,
  With his crotch splitting the OS leg of the
  guard.
 His eyes are straight ahead
 He is balanced, with his hands on his hips
 If his hands go to his knees, he goes to
  the bench
 We have some flexibility to his alignment

         Ways We Mesh
 Same Side Mesh     (Front Side Read)
 Backside Read
 Designed Give Play
 Designed Pull   Play
 TAZ Mesh
 OS Veer  Mesh
 Play Action Mesh
  QB Footwork And The Mesh
 If The back is crossing the QB, the QB will
  take a flat step toward the back. We call
  this Flat Step, Short Step.
 He reaches the ball deep and feels the
  belly of the back, snapping his eyes to his
  read.
 He rides the back through while making
  his read.
 “Squeeze and Chase, Pull and Replace”
QB Footwork And The Mesh
  RB Footwork And The Mesh
 The back   aligns 1.5 to 2 yards behind the
  QB, straddling the outside leg of the
  guard.
 If the back is crossing the QB, he will take
  a step opposite the QB, then get downhill.
 He must make a deep pocket, with the top
  palm up.
 The back must feel the QB read, and not
  snatch at the football.
     Reading The Backside 5
 This is the whole concept that began our
  craze with the gun offense
 The offense does not have to block a
  backside player
 This allows us to get one more lineman to
  the second level
 Allows us to put 5 techniques in conflict
     Why Read The Backside 5?
   We get one more blocker to the second level
   We allow the offense to always give the ball to
    the right player
   We put the 5 technique in conflict, and 5
    techniques tend to be very good players
   We allow the 5 tech to see several different
    looks
   The defensive line must practice facing multiple
    looks
   We give ourselves a chance to be successful
    against a stud by having him take himself out of
    the game
   SQUEEZE AND CHASE, PULL
        AND REPLACE
 If the 5 technique squeezes and chases,
  pull and replace
 If he does anything else, give the football
 If the 5 tech slow plays, give the football
 If the 5 tech comes upfield, give the
  football
 If the 5 tech comes at the QB, give the
  football
                       Read the Backside 5 Technique

The main concept that started the whole phenomenon with the gun is the ability of
quarterbacks to read the backside 5 technique. The QB will read the backside 5
technique. This allows the backside tackle to work up to the second and third
level. Under center, the quarterback is not able to read the backside 5 technique,
he is working uphill. From the gun, the QB can read the backside 5 tech and use
his rule.
               QB’s Rule: Squeeze and Chase, pull and replace.

If the 5 technique squeezes the tackle’s release and chases the back the
quarterback is meshing with, the QB will pull the football and replace the 5
technique. This is a way of reminding the QB to get downhill. If the 5 tech does
anything else, the QB gives the ball and carries out a downhill run fake to hold the
pursuit. We drill this with our MESH DRILL. The QB’s and running backs work
together getting their mesh down, while the QB reads the 5 tech.. We vary how
the 5 technique plays in each situation as we drill the mesh and read.

 Mesh Drill                                If the DE squeezes and chases, the QB
                                   DE
                                           will pull the ball and replace the DE. We
                C                          want the QB to get downhill.
                                           If the DE sits at home, or goes upfield,
                                           the QB will give the ball and continue a
               QB                          downhill run fake.

   The QB Takes A Flat Step To The Back, then a short
    step. His feet should face the Sideline, in a heel toe
    relationship at the mesh point. His weight should be
    slightly right

                    QB gets his eyes to his read




Always simulate a
     snap
                                                  The QB is giving the
                                                  football as the 5
                                                  technique is coming up
                                                  field.

       This is a great view of the quarterback’s footwork on the
       mesh. You can see the angle of his feet allowing the
       back to cross in front.
    Reading the Backside 5 Tech
 When we read the backside 5 tech, the back will
  align opposite the call side. The back will step
  opposite the QB and mesh, as per his opposite
  side mesh rules.
 We can run virtually all of our offensive run plays
  reading the backside 5 technique
 Allows us to account for a defender with a read,
  allowing us to block one more second level
  defender
 We put good defensive ends in conflict
              Mesh Drill
 We run  our mesh drill with our
  quarterbacks and running backs every
  day.
 We run active mesh at least two days a
  week where we add our offensive tackles
  and tight ends
 We have an inside run period with 5
  minutes designated for our read game
      Keys To A Good Mesh
 The QB   must secure the snap first!
 The QB MUST get his eyes to his read
 The RB must make a deep soft pocket
 The RB must be patient, don’t rush
 The Tackle must reduce his shoulder to
  avoid allowing the DE to collision him
  down the line
 The QB must be soft with the football
 Coaching Points On The Mesh
 The quarterback and   running back do not
  need to fight over the football
 The QB makes the decision, not the RB
 RB keeps his top palm up and out
 QB must be soft with the football
 Coach the QB on his eyes

         Inside Zone Read Play
   The inside read play is our number one play
    from the gun
   This is the first play we installed from the gun
   We use our zone blocking system for this play
   Based on game planning decision, we will use
    zone combinations and or fold blocks to get
    movement
   We read the backside 5 or #3 defender
   The TB reads Will To Mac To Go
                  Inside Zone Rules
   Our offensive line rules begin with the playside gap
   Our landmark is the playside jersey number of the
    defensive lineman
   We want to dent the line of scrimmage and get movement
   Our offensive line takes a six inch zone step to the play
    side at a 45 degree angle, depending on the technique of
    the defensive lineman
   On our first step, our offensive lineman will grab their guns
    (This term tells our lineman to get their hands cocked)
   The second step is through the crotch of the defender

If the playside end is slanting inside, we like to kick him
out with the guard and bring the tackle under to the
PSLB.
           Our HIPPO Concept
   We also use zone combinations with our
    lineman getting hip to hip
   Offensive Linemen will drive the defensive
    lineman into the linebacker
   The direction the linebacker goes will determine
    which lineman accounts for the backer
   Our landmark is the near ear/near number of the
    down defender
   We teach the offensive lineman to get four eyes
    to backer
Teaching a Near Ear Vertical Push
   Offensive lineman will take a flat step to the near
    number
   On the flat step the offensive lineman will cock
    their hands
   The second step is a vertical step and punch the
    near number of the down defender
   We call this Flat Step, L Step
   We drive the down guy into the linebacker
   We DO NOT chase backers

This is the counter read vs. a 30 Stack Defense. There are many different
ways to block this play. We will make adjustments based on how each
defense plays the 30. Our first adjustment is to block the R with the
Center, down block the T with the PSG, and put the PSLB on the Mac.
The Rover usually is not a problem because he gets caught up in the flow
when we reacts to the pulling of the G and T.

We can use motion from one of our inside receivers to

   We use Taz from two back gun sets
   The QB will mesh with the crossing back, then
    the back getting the ball
   The meshing back steps in front of the QB to
    mesh
   The QB takes a short flat step slightly downhill to
    mesh with the back
   The QB then steps with his inside foot towards
    the back getting the ball
   The QB is not making a read when we call TAZ.

When we use Taz action with the counter read we use our zone
away rules on the frontside. We can run this using our hippo
technique, but we find the zoning away helps sell the defense.
Using TAZ Give and Taz Follow

 TAZ Give alerts   we will give the ball to the
  first back and fake to the second back
 This creates conflict within the linebackers
 TAZ Give allows us to hit the defense
  quickly, with action that holds the backside
 TAZ Give allows us get great angles on
  backers in our trap and counter game

The 33 Taz Inside Give is simply an inside zone play to the H or 3
back. The QB will give the ball on his initial mesh with the H. He
will carry out his fake with the A or TB and sprint outside.

With our TAZ action we can alert Follow to tell the QB to fake both
the H and the A and follow the H. Iso alerts the offensive line we
will be blocking our isolation play through the 3 hole.

    Vs. an odd front, the PST and Slot combo the DT to the PSLB. The PSG Pulls and
    fights to get to the outside jersey number of the DE or inverted OLB. The backside
    of the line executes outside zone footwork with fast flow, aiming for the outside
    bicep of the offensive lineman. The QB puts the A back in motion and snaps the
    ball when the A back is at the middle of the BSG. The QB will mesh in front and
    sprint to the backside to hold the pursuit. The TB sprints to get outside and finds
    the first gap. The PSG is looking to log the DE.

    We will run the Jet Sweep with the H back as well to the trips side. When the defense keeps
    six in the box and has two inverts versus Gator, you can outflank the defense. Vs. an even
    front defense you can get everyone leveraged to the 3 technique side. If the Will steps up to
    blitz, the backside alerts and the backside will account for the Will. You can also alert base and
    put the center down on the one tech, the guard on the Will, and the BST on the DE. If the
    Rover goes with motion, you can read the backside end.

    This is the Jet Sweep vs. an odd front with our OZ Zone scheme. We are blocking
    this with our outside zone footwork and the PSG does not pull. The line is going to
    bucket step to gain depth and get to the outside bicep of the down defender. We
    are looking to lock the box while working our blocks in tandem. We want to get the
    ball on the edge.

    If the Sam is beating your guard, you can make a “Switch” call. This puts
    the OSWR cracking the #2 defender and puts the pulling guard on the
    corner. Everything else stays the same. This helped us get the ball on
    the perimeter. When you get a hard corner, we use this scheme and then
    run the post corner our Jet Switch Special which is a pass off the Jet.

    We can run the Jet Sweep with the trap fake off the Jet action, just as
    many Wing-T teams run from under center. The QB will give on the jet,
    fake to the FB, and sprint opposite. You can put the back on either side to
    run this play. Essentially, instead of blocking the Mac, you are holding him
    with the trap fake.

    This is Navy H Jet 42 Influence Trap. This takes advantage of the Mac flying with
    the guard. The backside guard will pull and trap the 3 technique. If the 3 widens
    with the guard, turn this up. The PST releases over the DT and blocks the second
    level A gap. He must be alert and quick to blow up a Mac Blitz A. The Slot
    releases over the top and Blocks the second level B gap.

    This is the Counter X off 38 Jet Action. This is a great way to take
    advantage of an over aggressive defense. This is a very quick reverse
    with our line using fold blocks to create angles.
All of the previous plays can be run from
two back sets. The backside back can
cross in front (scissors), or dropstep and
get into pitch relationship of the QB gets
a pull read. That is the great thing about
the gun run game is every play can be a
double or triple option. You can adapt the
gun to virtually any offense!
 Getting Your QB Into The Run Game

 This allows you to take advantage of the

 We run several plays from this set to keep
  the defense form loading up on the sweep
            The Horses Set
The horses set is a set we used to get our QB on the perimeter. We ran
the horses set with great success. The base play is 18-19 Horses. We
complement this play with 12-13 Iso, and all of our read plays. We also
run our zone play, and run play action off the horses. The horses set is
designed to get angle blocks on our opponents.

  Horses
 You can also run quarterback trap
 You can throw the football from what is
  essentially a bunch set
 You can run all of your read plays
      Using Your QB as a TB
 In the one back gun, your QB can become
  the tailback
 Your ace back becomes your fullback
 You can run your regular two back run
  plays from the gun
 This is great if you have a very athletic
  quarterback

You don’t have to have the A back to the same side as the QB to run QB Iso. QB Iso can
be run away from the side of the back. Vs a 50 the State formation gives you an
advantage to the play side as you have a slot to block the DE. Even if they invert the
Strong Safety, he becomes a non-factor. We can double team the PSDT and use fast
zone footwork with the center and BSG to account for the Nose and the Will. We do tell
the Center to work the playside jersey number of the Nose to allow the Guard to overtake
the block. If we get the nose shaded to the backside, we would use a HIPPO combo to
the BSLB.

Versus a backside on against a more traditional 4-4 look, we use our
HIPPO combo on the one tech. If they invert the Strong Safety, we
block him with the PSWR and put the H on the FS. If they invert him,
however, they become weak to the backside versus the pass game.

This is a great adjustment off of the 14 QB trap with the PST outside veer releasing to the
Strong Safety and the FB leading up on the PSLB. BST protects against B gap run
through on the backside. Let BST go unless he is a super stud. A good down block on
the Nose eliminates the run through. The QB is not faking pass at all as this is not a draw.
He takes the snap and he is off to the races. The frontside slot tightens up to 4 yards and
blocks the backside safety. In red is an alternate path for your backside slot if your tackle
can not get the Strong Safety. We put this in against a 50 team and had two big plays.

This is another variation of this play from two back gun. The outside veer release of the PST
widens the DT, and the fullback kicks him out. The BSG pulls and leads through. The scissors
action holds the LB’s. You can also run this with the BSG pulling and kicking out and the TB
leading up.

This is a great play if the defense is fast flowing to the play
side, or trying to squeeze/scrap. The QB shortens his steps
on the mesh and gets a longer ride. The back must fly
outside after the ride as if the play is OS zone.

  This is a designed QB Keep off power action with rip motion.
  Counter base alerts us we will have only a pull kick out with no
  lead through. This keeps the defense from getting flow to
  the motion to defend your counter read. When the DE to
  the mesh side flies upfield, this slows him down.

From an ace set under center, you couldn’t run the power without
motioning a slot. From the gun, you the defense has to account
for two backs in the backfield, and still account for four wides.

When we call Virginia Check, we are alerting the offense that the
QB will be calling Veer at the line. He will look for the one and 5
technique. In the case above, we would check 13 veer.

The QB will check to 12 Veer with the 1-5 combination on our
right side. If we run veer from Green, the Y will block the free
safety and we will pitch off the OLB.
                    18-19 Check
   When we run load or speed to the open side, we are
    looking for a 1-5 technique, just like we do for inside veer
   We can use motion to gain an extra blocker
   Our QB can flip the call to get the play to the 1-5 side
   When we work with a TE, we want our load option to go
    to the 1-5-9 technique
   This gives us two double teams at the point of attack
   We can slot the TE and use Tom motion to get the TE to
    the playside
   He can then Trey with the PST tracking the PSLB
   This allows us to combo the 1 tech with the PSG and
    Center tracking the Backside linebacker.

                                            side, he will motion to

                                            shuffle back.



18-19 Check works the same way as 12-13 check. We
want to check to the 1-5 technique. We will usually use
Tom motion to get a combo on the 5 tech to the PSLB. The
reason we run load to the 1-5 tech with Tom motion is to
get two combos on the playside.

 In the case above, we would check to 19 Load. The QB will put
 the TE in motion and snap the ball when he is one yard outside
 the PST. We get two combos to the point of attack.
         Two Tracking Two
 We can motion our  Y or H to the playside
  depending on our formation
 We get an extra blocker to track the PSLB
 The Tackle and motion man will track

Tom alerts the Y he will be in motion to the playside. When we
put the Y in Tom motion, he will be the second player tracking the
PSLB to FS. The QB will snap the ball when the Y gets one yard
outside the PST. We will pitch off the invert

  If we were in a check mode, we would want to run the 13 veer
  with a 1 and a 5 technique on the left side. If the 1-5 were on the
  tight side, we would check to Tom 12 Veer.
