Gun Bunch HB Str

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: Z Spot

Setup:

  1. Put the B/O on a drag route

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the A/X tight end in the flats
  2. Then look for the RB/R1 corner route towards the sideline
  3. If that is not there hit the B/O receiver on the drag
  4. Finally, hit the X/Square receiver deep over the middle

Overview: We are going to use this play to beat Cover 3 style defenses. There is a high low read on the bunch side of the formation, and then you have a drag over the middle and then the Z spot route deep over the middle.

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: Y Trail

Setup:

  1. None required

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the B/O receiver on the drag route
  2. Next look for the A/X tight end on the angle route
  3. If that’s not there look deep over the middle to the X/Square receiver on the post
  4. There is also the high low read on the right with the running back and the RB/R1 receiver

Overview: In this play we focus mainly on beating Cover 2 style defenses. As shown in the video this formation ruins zone coverages and basically leaves everything open.

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: Inside Zone

Setup:

  1. None

Reads:

  1. Follow the blocks

Overview: This run is used to keep your opponent on their toes so they cannot just guess pass every time we use this formation. If they start pass committing and dropping extra people in coverage this run will expose them

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: PA Bunch Shot

Setup:

  1. Put the RB/R1 receiver on a curl route
  2. Max Protect

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the RB/R1 receiver on the curl
  2. Then look for the B/O receiver deep to the left side of the field
  3. If that is not there look for the X/Square receiver for the bomb
  4. If all else playmaker the curl route

Overview: This could be considered as one of the best plays in the entire game. It can bomb any type of defense, while still having other routes that are next to impossible to cover. Especially, with the playmaker feature and the blocking on this play. Letting the play action carry out picks up any nano blitzes.

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: Read Option

Setup:

  1. None

Reads:

  1. Hand it off to the running back and follow your blocks

Overview: This is another good run to use to keep your opponent guessing. Also if they start to key in on the inside zone run use this play to stop their user from shooting the gap and blowing up the run.

Formation: Gun Bunch HB STR

Play: Verticals

Setup:

  1. Put the A/X tight end on a streak
  2. Put the X/Square receiver on a drag

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the B/O receiver quick to the flats
  2. Then look for the A/X receiver deep over the middle
  3. Next look to the RB/R1 receiver to the left of the field
  4. If that is not there check down to the X/Square receiver on the drag
  5. There is the running back on a delayed curl for another check down

Overview: This is another great pass play that can destroy both Cover 2 and Cover 3 style defenses. This play has both deep and short check downs, so we can beat the defense up top, but when we have to we can also check it down for a decent gain.

When you say “playmaker” the curl route, what does that mean and how do you make it happen?

Besides the plays that beat all coverages, are there any that are specifically good at beating Cover 4?

Just so you know people, when Stickwork says that the PA Bunch Shot play is the best in this eBook, he has never been more right in his life.

I cannot tell you how many times I have used this play at the end of a half, or at the end of a game, where I am down in the score, my opponent is in Cover 4 (and even Cover2 or 3), and I bomb away to shock him with a TD using the X / square receiver.

PA Bunch Shot play is awewome!

Thanks Madden School!
