So, as we sit here drinking Rum for breakfast and beer for lunch, a good topic came up. Now this has come up a little bit here and there, but I thought it would be a good general topic. The under center snap is essentially only used in short yardage now...shotgun is king.
This is generally fine, as it is a pass first spread offense league, and it allows better reads. But bucking trends often leads to success, as it throws your competitors off their standard practice and gives them more to prep for. You can run a lot of similar plays, but where it really benefits a team like the Riders is on the run. Those couple less yards for the D to adjust can be massive, especially against smash mouth runners.
I would love to see this at least attempted. The beauty is that you can switch up into the shotgun and throw teams off. It is more natural to use a 3-4 against these formations, so flipping the script by going under center then no huddle into shotgun...or even better the other way around so there are 4 DL against the UC formation...this could be a pretty interesting tactic.
