Most coaches have concerns regarding protection when running their offensefrom an empty set, with good reason. However there are a few advantages.Remember that because your receivers are spread out in formation, thedefense has to show you who will be rushing the passer, and consequentlyalso show you who will or will not be covered. There are two terms I will be using: 3-plus-receiver side (which means theside where you will put three or four receivers), and the 2-minus receiverside (which means the side where you put two or one receiver).

 There are two basic ways to pass protect from an empty set: man or zone. Inman, you can have the center (or uncovered guard) double read away fromthe 3-plus receive side. This is because you can build in a hot route to thatside that will stretch the defense horizontally (to open up the passing lanes)

(and forth) rusher comes from that side. On the 2-minus receiverside, you can also build a hot route into the pattern, or have a receiver sightadjust his route on that side. I suggest building in a hot route.Zone (or slide) protection is a little different. You will slide away from the 3-plus-receiver side. This will take care of the third and sometimes forth rusherwith the wash. The tackle (and sometimes guard) away from the slidedirection has man protection.

Protection when the 3-plus receiver side is to the left
My opinion is that although I think man protection is better when passingfrom an empty formation, zone protection is easier to install and teach. Iwould do whatever my line coach said was best for his guys.In addition, running some plays from the “Fly Offense” can become a par t of this package. Depending on how you align your receivers, you can have anyone of them run the ball from an empty set.Installing the “no-back passing attack” is fairly straightforward. Start withthe quick passing game. We start with the quick passing game because itforces the QB to make good pre-snap reads, and helps him make quickerdecisions down the road. In addition, the QB now will be able to unload theball before the pass rush gets to him.
