Leaders of the Air Raid Offense

Did you watch the Rose Bowl Classic Oklahoma versus Georgia last night? Did you see how fast Oklahoma’s Air Raid attack moved the ball up and down the field? Do you wonder what plays Oklahoma’s Air Raid attack ran?

Today’s episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie has you covered. I interview Coach Drew Piscopo about the Air Raid attack. Couple of things I learned from the interview:

  • How to signal plays in with only two hand gestures.
  • How to practice and become great at the Four Vertical route.
  • How Mike Leach’s Air Raid differs from Hal Mumme’s Air Raid.
  • How Oklahoma uses the run more in the Air Raid.

These are only a couple of things we talk about in this podcast. We also talk about tempo and when you should mash the gas and when you should slow down.

Hope you coaches enjoy this one as much as I do.

You can get in touch with Coach Piscopo here.

Mike Leach talking to Hal Mumme

Proud Parents

Oklahoma plays today in the College Playoffs and every Air Raid coach across America will be cheering them on. Why? Because this is the first time since the early 2000s that the Air Raid Offense has been on the national stage.

Yet, many coaches don’t know how the Air Raid Offense fits together. Coaches don’t see how certain routes are complementary to one another. How you need to run Y-Stick and Y-Corner together. Or how Mesh complements the Shallow Crossing series.

But don’t worry coaches. Because I’ve got ya’ll covered in today’s Talking Football with Coach McKie podcast. In this episode, I talk about six route concepts that complement one another. I also talk about how play callers can call the right play based on what the defense does. This allows the play caller to stop guessing what to call in the Air Raid Offense and start killing defenses.

This type of play calling is similar to the Wing-T and Flexbone offense. Yet, it is better because you are throwing the ball all over the place and scoring a bunch of points.

Man to man defense

Don’t let this coverage scare you.

In this episode of the Talking Football with Coach McKie Podcast, I talk about how you can make teams pay for going Cover 0 and Cover 1 against you. Most Spread teams struggle when teams get in their face and go Cover 0 and/or Cover 1. Why?

Because of the mindset. You have to get excited when teams go Cover 0 and/or Cover 1. You must instill that mindset into your players. And you must have a list of plays you go to when you see man. It’s that easy.

What plays should you use? Crossing routes and pick routes. What kind of crossing routes? Mesh and shallow cross. Those two routes are a must if you want to defeat man coverage.

Then you must use motion. Quick motion with the wide receiver and fast motion with the running back. Get the defense to move with you. If they don’t then you have the advantage.

Last, you must use formations. I love Stack and Bunch formations. Gets the defense confused and usually allows one of your guys to come free.

Greatest Play In Football

I love the inside zone. I think it is the greatest running play in all of football. Yet, many teams don’t sell out to the Inside Zone. Coaches say that Inside Zone is too difficult for their kids. Or, my I love Power instead of the Inside Zone. Or, I like the Inside Zone, but I don’t want to run it that often because my kids get bored.

Well, in this episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie, I talk about how you can use the Inside Zone as your only run scheme. Yes, I know I’m crazy. But your kids will love it. You will love it. And the scoreboard will love it because you will be scoring a ton of points.

Why the Inside Zone? It’s simple. You can have tags to make it look complex. Every gap is accounted for. You can use Run Pass Options off of it. You can utilize your quarterback as a runner if you want to. (Lucky jerk)

Simply put - the Inside Zone is the most versatile run scheme in all of football, and you should make it the only run play you have.

Until next time coaches, let’s continue to Master the Spread, Score Points, and Have Fun.
