We will divide the field into five passing lanes, or what we will refer to as tubes.
The five tubes represent the pre-snap position of the five eligible receivers and are
named by the anticipated action of defenders in those tubes. Tubes are created by the
location of eligible receivers in the offenses pre-snap position.
The outside CUSHION TUBES will contain defenders whose cushion may potentially
deny outside receivers free access down the field vertically.
COLLISION TUBES have defensive players positioned to disrupt or re-route the exit
of an inside receiver using contact.
The CROSSOVER TUBE is located between the offensive tackles and can serve as an
additional collision tube. In this tube, defenders exchange responsibility for crossing
receivers and cover them along their drop paths.
Any grass above the HARD DECK is considered the deep part of the field. Any tube
with a defender aligning deeper than the hard deck (7 10 yards) is in a CAP position
to control the vertical stem of a receiver in that tube. A defender below the hard deck
risks getting beat deep.

Each of our passing concepts will have a playside.


The quarterback will designate playside during the
cadence. If we are playside right, the quarterback will
call an even number in the cadence. If we are playside
left, the quarterback will call an odd number in the
cadence. We will number our receivers from 1 to 4
starting with the playside receiver closest to the sideline
regardless of the formation we are in.
*We will always call playside to the trips side in any 3x1 or
3x2 formation.

This concept has been one of our most successful in execution. The route concept
allows the offense to confidently attack any coverage the defense plays. The
Dallas concept combines a quick vertical stretch with a quick horizontal stretch.
Verses cover 0 or 1, we have built in man beater routes. Versus cover 2, we look to
horizontally stretch the strong safety. Versus cover 3, we look for a rhythm seam
before progressing to a read post in the vulnerable weak hole. Versus cover 4, we
look to vertically stretch the defense before progressing to an arrow route attacking
the open flat. This must be run with a trips formation. We can motion to trips by
checking with the cadence out of any 2x2 formation.
#1 0 (lock)
#2 Rhythm Cross vs. MOFO / Seam vs. MOFC (HOT)
#3 - Arrow
#4 2 vs. MOFO / 6 vs. MOFC
F back - check release Spot route. In shotgun, always line up to man side of
protection! Run an arrow in any empty formation.
Protection 50 or 60 (man side is trips side)

Dallas can be run from the following


formations:
- Base (with speed motion)
- Spread (with speed motion)
- Trips Right /Trips Left
- Snug Right / Snug Left
- Flex Right / Flex Left

- H is "hot" route (Seam vs. MOFC, Cross vs. MOFO)
- X will run 3-step slant vs. MOFO, 7-step post vs. MOFC
- F check release spot in 60 protection, play action in 50 protection
- Y can not snap route ("locked") if cushion tube is capped because of the Z arrow

The concept features a route that is run shallow at the heels of the defensive
linemen. The route allows the offense to neutralize the man-advantage of the
defense by crossing the center line of the formation (cross-over tube). This concept
can be successful vs. any coverage. The core of this concept combines the Shallow
route with a Dig route from the opposite side of the formation to create a 2-on-1
vertical stretch with the outside linebacker. Post routes are run by the outside
receivers to create a 2-on-2 horizontal stretch with the safety.

#1 - 7-step lock Rhythm Post


#2 - run a Read Dig at 10 yards (idle down vs. zone)
#3 - run a Rush Shallow at the heels of the defensive linemen (HOT)
#4 7-step lock Read Post
F back check release to a Rush Spot route. In shotgun, always line up man side of
protection!

The Oakland Concept is a staple of the West Coast offense. This play consists
of the same infrastructure as the Tampa Concept. The horizontal stretch made
by the Shallow route and the Dig route are the foundation of the two concepts.
However, in the Oakland concept the shallow and dig are on the same side of
the field.

The Boston Concept allows the offense to confidently attack any coverage the
defense plays. Verses cover 0 or 1, we have built in man beater routes. Versus
cover 2, we look to horizontally stretch the strong safety. Versus cover 3, we
look for a rhythm cross before progressing to a backside read hook in the
vulnerable weak hole. Versus cover 4, we look to vertically stretch the defense
before progressing to routes attacking the flats. We will often tag a route for
the F in this concept.
