Gun Flip Trips

Playbook: Arizona Cardinals

Formation: Gun Flip Trips

Play: Deep Fork

Setup:

  1. Block your running back

Reads:

  1. Against cover 2 defense, look to the A/X receiver on the corner route
  2. Against cover 3 defense, look first to the B/circle receiver on the out route then look to the A/X receiver on the corner.
  3. Against cover 4 defense, look first to the B/circle receiver on the out route then look to the A/X receiver on the corner.
  4. Against man to man defense, all of your routes can get open.

Overview: This is a play that is pretty effective against all defenses but doesn’t completely destroy any particular defense.

  2. Against cover 3 defenses, look to the A/X receiver deep (lead pass to the sideline)
  3. Against cover 4 defenses, look to the A/X receiver deep (lead pass to the sideline)
  4. Against man to man defenses, look to either the RB/R1 receiver or the X/square receiver

In this playbook you really have to be able to read the d’s. What are you focusing on to uncover what D you up against. Is it the FS to see where his immediate drop is ? Take me/us through how you go about determining the coverage. Heck you might even want to make it part of the guide since it’s paramount knowing this for the plays to work.

Can these plays be flipped and work the same way?

This playbook is alright but it takes too much time in pocket. Running this book in Salary Cap MUT and you simply don’t have the time to chill in pocket like this. Not hating either, Im actually a fan of the work you guys do on this site. I loved the Denver book last season and the defenses you guys had but this book just wasn’t for me. Looking for some quicker hitters with a mediocre to short dink and dunk scheme.
