    Basically the ultimate spread offense? Possibly the future of college football but I couldn't see that in the NFL.

    Yeah, I wonder what type of packages and trickery plays they could do with that. If they had a couple premier receivers or weapons on the team, it would be hell for opposing teams, especially if they use them as decoys and such.

    I had a dream about that once. 2 QB's, Hail Mary situation, defense befuddled, 2nd QB gets all the time in the world to make a throw. Amazing to see that someone's actually doing it.

    Now I can see a reason for having a Pat White or Michael Vick play QB.

    And Michael Vick would still find a way to screw it up.

    :lol: true. But I do think it would never be as popular as the Spread. This is a little over the top and only screws up the players running it in Highschool.

    I think if it was to be affective, it would be as popular as the spread. It could somewhat help players with their route running (if they were to run something more than a go route). This offense would best be used in a philosophy that wants to maximize a players talents and use them as weapons (i.e. a June Jones offense).

    ok, so its an offense with no offensive line. the dolphins could have used this over the past 6 years.

    Actually I don't think it helps players out at all. It looks like a mess with all the Receivers running around, reminds me of Recess football or Gym football (1 QB 8-12 guys running around for the ball to get to them)

    True but you can make it so the receivers actually have a clue to what route they are running. If the coach was to implement actual plays in that philosophy, it could be a positive for the players. In that offense, you would have to have good instincts and awareness to be a receiver imo.

    How's this work anyways? Like how is it so hard for the defense to identify, because don't you need 7 men on the LOS at all times, and only the 2 most outside guys on the line can be receivers?

    I understand it spreads your D out, but not everyone can wind up with the ball like they are implying.

    That won't work for long. A decent DC will realize he can over load the line to pressure the QB. This shouldn't be too difficult with decent DB's that can play some zone and read the QB. This offense is TOO spread out IMO. Hard pressure on the QB should prove this spread to be inefficient as it should allow a defense to cover more WR's with less DB's. A Pat White could definitely make life a nightmare for the opposition, but there just aren't enough Pat White's out there. Not to mention, he's going to get hit a LOT in that kind of offense.

    not true, even the guys who don't go out can take a reverse handoff or a lateral.

    overloading the LOS alone ain't gonna stop this offense for long, if the QB receiving the snap has some composure.

    i can tell from the video there are multiple check downs/hot routes built in at the LOS, just for that reason. plus there is a second QB to dump off to on a lateral in the backfield to help negate that and keep the pass play alive on a blitz.

    You wouldn't need much of an overloaded LOS. I would pressure the QB with pure speed guys. There isn't enough blocking up front to need much size, and there's too much open room not to have agility in the middle. The hot reads would have to be the base of the offense, but like I said, these guys are TOO spread out to the point of inefficiency. Composure isn't going to let the WR's get very far and clear an overloaded zone before the QB has to throw.
