THE WEST COAST OFFENSIVE GUIDE

INTRODUCTION:

By now everyone has heard about the West Coast offense, and normally everyone uses it for Bunch (as they should), but we want to add our spin on it as we bring a focus on using the new custom audibles to our advantage. While Bunch is included, and other formations we begin our dive into West Coast by looking at the 2 Tight End sets. The goal of this guide is control the clock and use your offense to put constant pressure on the opposition as you will be getting points on every single drive.

Below you will find each formation with its own section laid out within tabs. When possible we will also go over an advanced strategy that may require more adjustments, a complete understanding of the formation, or quicker fingers to complete the play. Make sure to learn the entire body of content to ensure that your offense is running on all cylinders.

So lets jump into it, and start learning The West Coast Offense. Thanks for checking out the guide and be sure to tweet us @maddenturf or review us on http://facebook.com/maddenturf after you have gone through the guide to let us know your thoughts!

2 Wide Receiver Sets

West Coast

The goal here starting out the guide is to master controlling the game. This means using the clock and 1st downs to our advantage. We all know the running game is very OP this year, so we bring you a scheme that allows maximum flexibility to run and pass. 91 zone? Won’t save your opponent here as we FORCE them to defend the run and allow us to dictate their defense. Once this is done we can pick and choose if we decide to carve them up with the run or the pass. This scheme does appear very simple at a glance, but does and will take time to master the reads, slides, and playmakering needed to take this section to its highest potential.

Is it battle tested? Yup. The reason we took longer to get this out is because we wanted to make sure that using ONLY this 2 wide receiver scheme you could have success. This was tested in weekend league, mut draft, and salary cap and has produced the results we expected. Please sit back, dive in, and hop into practice mode with us!

In this group of tabs we will go over the basic fundamentals of the offense. To ensure you understand how to run this offense we first recommend taking this into practice mode and working on your timing. This is done best with two controllers to properly emulate the setups people use on defense. You can also edit a custom roster to 99 zone to truly see how this works vs elite defenders.

Every formation needs a good set of audibles….

  • HB Dive
  • Stretch
  • X Post
  • PA Deep In / Z Spot

This setup uses many of the same routes as X Post, but in different spots. It helps creates confusion for a user defender who is trying to anticipate the route combinations. In case of emergency we always have the playmaker ability as well which is typically the dagger to the defense.
