In todays tip, Fiasco is breaking down the I Form Normal formation out of Kansas City’s Offensive playbook. The reason why we like I Form Normal is because it is a balanced set with 2 Wr’s on the outsides, but also 2 running backs. When running the ball, we like to use the HB Power O run play. This is a good run that you can either take up the middle or break the run to the outside. If you notice that your opponent starts selling out on the run with one of his safeties, we are going to make him pay by audibling to a play action play and hit one of our WR’s deep. PA FL Hitch is a great compliment to the Power O because the full back looks like he is blocking at first when in reality he is on a fade route.
By having the ability to throw a deep lob streak to one of our WR’s on the outsides, this avoids our opponent from running down with his safety. If he doesn’t over commit on the run, we will gladly take 4-5 yards every time. If he starts playing a linebacker, you will be able to run the ball at will. Pretty much if he contains the outside we cut the run back to the middle, and if he tries to shoot a gap in the middle, we break the run wide.
