I’ve wasted a bunch of time this morning trying to play with Flash animation for my formation posts. Let me know what you think.

1) This formation starts in shotgun with 3 WR, usually Housh, Nate and Branch. Housh is in the slot. Carlson is lined up opposite of the slot receiver.

2) All the receivers and running back streak forward about 10 yards from their starting position.

3) Housh and Carlson curl to the outside. Branch and Burleson run out patterns, and the RB curls underneath.

This play has been used mostly during hurry up. It gets you two guys nearing the sidelines and challenges the middle of the field for first down yardage. The dump off is a safety value that will generally net at least five yards.
