Football's Best Offensive Playbook Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every offensive playbook gives you Xs and Os that look good on paper. Football's Best Offensive Playbook goes the extra yard, providing precisely illustrated plays that are proven point-producers in games.

Many of football's greatest coaches--including Bobby Bowden, Tom Osborne, and Steve Spurrier--have contributed their expertise to the book. Each of the 100 plays comes with a clear, accurate diagram and coaching pointers that highlight key player positions and responsibilities. Many coaches list alternate formations, and most of the plays can be adapted to any offensive system. And since the book features contributions from coaches in the high school, college, and pro ranks, you'll find plays that work at all levels.

Football's Best Offensive Playbook is an excellent resource for:

- coaches looking to add to their playlists or develop new wrinkles for existing plays, - players attempting to better understand offensive strategy and play selection, and- students of the game trying to become more knowledgeable about what makes an offense click.

The book features a balance of running and passing plays organized by formation. Part I, Running Plays, features 44 inside, off-tackle, and outside plays from coaches who have established their teams as perennial title contenders through the ground game. Greats like Bob Reade (whose teams once won 63 straight games) at Augustana College, Illinois, and John McKissick (the winningest high school coach in the country) of Summerville High School, South Carolina, contribute some of their most successful plays.

Part II, Passing Plays, features 45 plays designed for modern controlled passing schemes, centered around precise timing and pinpoint accuracy. The plays are divided into play action and dropback passes. Contributing to this section are such notable passing architects as Dennis Erickson of perennial national championship contender University of Miami, Tom Coughlin of the NFL expansion Jacksonville Jaguars, and LaVell Edwards of Brigham Young, who has coached such great quarterbacks as Jim McMahon, Steve Young, and Ty Detmer.

Part III, Special Plays, features 13 gadgets designed to burn cheating defenses. Included are 5 reverses, 3 throwback passes, 3 PATs, and 2 trick plays.

A Play Finder index lists plays by type of run (power, speed, or deception), pass (yardage needed and drop-back or roll-out), and formation. The book also features a key to symbols used in the diagrams and a glossary of important terms.

Strengthen your playlist with help from many of the game's most successful coaches. Get Football's Best Offensive Playbook.
