O
ver the years we havecome to realize thatscouting and filmbreakdown are essen-tial elements of game preparation.Without a framework to use whenbreaking down film, it's possible tomiss key elements that might comeback to haunt us on game day.One particular game a few yearsago drove home this point. We hadprepared for it with a very bad scout-ing tape and r\otes taken by a parent.
Tn
the game, the opposing QB provedto be very elusive with the QB keeperand throwing in the perimeter.We did not realize that he was byfar their best athlete and neededspecial attention and emphasis inour game preparation. We ended uplosing by a point and learning ahard lesson.Rather than look at film and justtake notes, we have come up with asystem of asking essential questionsthat can help us break down filmand construct the offensive anddefensive game plan that we canpass on to our players.We start with the premise thatthere is no substitute for good gamefilm. With no film exchange at ourlevel, the quality of the film is entire-ly left to our
staff.
We have to trainour film people to get the type ofshots we want... and that does notalways mean a scope that spans theLB's and the offensive backfield.For instance, in long yardage situ-ations we want a wider angle to get alook at pass routes.In short-yardage situations we likea tighter focus of the offensive anddefensive lines.
We
also find it helpfulto get at least a few shots at groundlevel in back of the offense anddefense, to give us an idea of offensivesplits and defensive gap responsibilityand alignment. Again, there is nosubstitute for good game film.The actual breakdown of film isseparated into two areas. We startwith our opponents' defense.
(1
thinkit is far better to concentrate on oneside of the ball rather than flip-flopback and forth.)As we go along, we attempt toanswer our essential defensive ques-
tions.
Sometimes it requires a secondreview of key plays to answer everyquestion accurately.Our essential defensive questionsare as follows:
De^nse:
I. What is their base defense? Anyother alignment?How do they adjust to Iwinsand trips?Do they flop the defensive endsand linebackers based on offen-sive alignment, and can wequick-snap them?Do they have a comer or a line-backer who plays the wide side?Do the LBs stunt? Do they runtwists with the linemen?How do they tackle scale 1-5?Who is their weakest defensivelineman? Weakest comer?Do the LB's tap and gapexchange with the linemen?Rate the LB speed. Scale 1-5Do they blitz? Strong side? Weakside? Inside blitz or off theedge? What down?

Do they corner or safety blitz?

After reviewing team defense,
we
move
on to our
opponents' offense,charting every offensive play withresult
and
down, then creating
our
essential offensive questions.
Offense:
1. Identify their four best plays.
2.
Script six other plays
in
rankorder
for a
total package
of
10.For 50/50 pass-run teams, scriptfive best run, five best pass.
3.
What plays
do
they like
to use
inside the 10?
4.
Do they trap
or
base block
for
the fullback?
5.
Do
their guards pull
or
are theyprimarily
a
zone
or
base block-ing team?6. Do they run into the tight end
or
away?
7.
Who can we take advantage ofon their offensive line?8. How good
is the
center? Scale
1-5
9. Who are their best players?
10.
Can we blitz and where? Comer?Safety?
11.
Who
do
they throw to? Sprint?Dropback? Bootleg? Short, medi-um, or long passing game?
12.

QB.

Size? Blocking?

Can we use press coverage?
15.
Do they use motion? Why?How much
do
they
run
playsinto the motion?
16.
Punt Depth and coverage?
Do
they squeeze the middle?After completing our offensiveand essential defensive questions,
we
feel we have laid
a
basis
for
con-structing the offensive
and
defensivegame plan
for
our next opponent.Our defensive game plan hingeson placing special emphasis
on
stop-ping
our
opponents' four best plays.Offensively, our game planinvolves play selection and blitzrecognition. We think that film break-down is the first vital key
in
gameplanning and
by
answering essentialquestions we begin
to
remove the ele-ment
of
chance from our game plan!
