TFP 31: Getting Rid Of Your Spread Quick Game Concepts

How many Spread quick game concepts do you have in your playbook? 5? 10? 15? Do your kids know how to run every Spread quick game concept to perfection? Do you call each Spread quick game concept multiple times throughout the game?

I’m willing to bet the answer to those questions are no. So why do you keep the Spread quick game concepts in your playbook?

In today’s episode of Talking Football with Coach McKie,  I make the argument on why you should get rid of your Spread quick game concepts and replace them with the Pin and Pull RPO.

(Note: I know you think I’m freaking nuts. But at least least to the podcast before sending me hate mail.)

You’ll learn from this episode:

  • Three reasons why I hate the Spread Quick Game Concept.
  • Why I say “Happy Offensive Linemen = Happy Offense”
  • Why coaches need to trust their quarterbacks more.
  • How eliminating the Spread Quick Game Concept helps your players get better.
  • Why players will play harder when you call the Pin and Pull RPO.
  • How I respond to the coaches who are going to send me hate mail.

    Coach McKie,
    The last thing you described on the Pin & Pull to the left, and the QB pulling & Running upfield replacing the LB probably won’t work… Because the LG has a 2i and is blocking the 2i away from the Pin & Pull side, so that hole should be filled by the 2i Tech. You’re doing a great thing for all Football Coaches, i like to see your videos. Keep up the good work!!! Coach Bill Pekarek Assist. Coach Park Hill H.S. in KCMO.

    I was wondering on the slants how do you teach the bubble route? Is it forward step or a backward step?
