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.
with fast break potential .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.
Comparing The Gun To Being Under Center The defense loads the box! .
Comparing Gun To Being Under Center In the spread gun. we open up the box. .
1 yards w/ the TB and no direct QB run From the gun we average 7.3 and 5. Under Center: 6.7 yards w/ the TB and 7.3 per rush .1 yards per play.Statistically Speaking We have averaged 6.9 w/ the QB IS Zone under Center: 5.2 yards a rush from the gun over 4 years IS Zone from the gun: 6.
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 .
They Are Left With 6 To Defend 7 In The Box .Comparing The Gun To Under Center F C R E T W T M E S C Def Accounts For 4 WR and 1 Back Defense Does Not Have To Defend The QB As A Runner Defense Can Defend The Box With 6 VS 6 F C R E T W T M E S C Defense Must Account For The QB AS The Second Back Defense Must Account For Four Wideouts If D Account For 4 Wides.

D must play man .
Why Your QB Will Love The Gun! He has a wider peripheral field of vision for presnap reads. Every time he meshes with a back he will be moving downhill. Your QB will have more opportunities to carry the football. Your QB will be able to see blitzes quicker and throw hot. Your QB already has depth in the pass game. Your QB will not trip over the centers foot. .

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
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 .
PULL AND REPLACE If the 5 technique squeezes and chases. give the football . give the football If the 5 tech slow plays. give the football If the 5 tech comes at the QB.SQUEEZE AND CHASE. pull and replace If he does anything else. give the football If the 5 tech comes upfield.
We want the QB to get downhill. the quarterback is not able to read the backside 5 technique. pull and replace. the QB can read the backside 5 tech and use his rule. Under center. Mesh Drill DE C If the DE squeezes and chases. the QB will give the ball and continue a downhill run fake. QB’s Rule: Squeeze and Chase. The QB’s and running backs work together getting their mesh down. If the 5 technique squeezes the tackle’s release and chases the back the quarterback is meshing with. he is working uphill.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. From the gun. or goes upfield. the QB will pull the football and replace the 5 technique. QB RB If the DE sits at home. while the QB reads the 5 tech. The QB will read the backside 5 technique. We vary how the 5 technique plays in each situation as we drill the mesh and read. the QB will pull the ball and replace the DE. . If the 5 tech does anything else. This is a way of reminding the QB to get downhill.. This allows the backside tackle to work up to the second and third level. the QB gives the ball and carries out a downhill run fake to hold the pursuit. We drill this with our MESH DRILL.
His weight should be slightly right . then a short step. in a heel toe relationship at the mesh point. His feet should face the Sideline.Reading The Backside 5 Technique Diagram Of The Mesh E Read Key The QB Takes A Flat Step To The Back.

You can see the angle of his feet allowing the back to cross in front. . This is a great view of the quarterback’s footwork on the mesh.The QB/RB Mesh 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.
The back will step opposite the QB and mesh. allowing us to block one more second level defender We put good defensive ends in conflict .Reading the Backside 5 Tech When we read the backside 5 tech. the back will align opposite the call side. 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. as per his opposite side mesh rules.
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 .Mesh Drill We run our mesh drill with our quarterbacks and running backs every day.
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 .

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 The offensive lineman is trying to punch through the playside jersey number We keep our feet moving to get our head across the midpoint of the defender We must keep our feet moving to get to the playside .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.
.Inside Zone Read Rules Center: Must Establish The Ohio (Ohio is our term for the 0) The Center Has playside Gap to 0 Guards: Playside Gap #1 Tackles: Playside Gap #2 TE: Playside Gap #3 The key is the Center MUST establish and communicate who the OHIO is.

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.

F C E T W N M T E $ C
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.

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.
