Gun Trips TE

Playbook: Oakland Raiders

Formation: Gun Trips TE

Play: Double In Sail (Part 1)

Setup:

  1. Put the B/O receiver on a streak
  2. Put the Y/Triangle receiver on a drag route
  3. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver in a couple steps and hike it

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the B/O receiver quick up the seam of the field
  2. If that is not there look for A/X tight end quick on the low pass
  3. Then look for the RB/R1 running back out of the back field
  4. Next, find the Y/Triangle receiver on the drag
  5. Finally, if all else fails check down to the X/Square receiver on the in route

Overview: This play is going to be great against zone coverage. As shown in the video there are so many routes that your opponent has to worry about. Especially, with all of the quick passes involved in this play it will make it hard to blitz.

Play: Double In Sail (Part 2)

Setup:

  1. Put the X/Square receiver on a smoke screen
  2. Put the Y/Triangle receiver on a streak
  3. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver to the right side of the field

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the X/Square receiver on the smoke screen
  2. Next, look for the running back quick out of the backfield
  3. If that is not there look for the B/O receiver on the corner route
  4. Finally, find the A/X tight end on the corner route on the right side

Overview: This play makes it very easy to make reads against a defense. We are attacking high and low on both sides of the field. On the left you just have to read the cornerback and see if he drops back then the smoke screen is open, if the cornerback plays the flats then the corner route will be open.

Play: Inside Zone

Setup:

  1. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver to the right a few steps and hike it

Reads:

  1. Follow the blocks

Overview: This is an effective run to keep your opponent off balance. You can’t get one dimensional and always pass, if you do so your opponent will start dropping a lot of people in coverage and pass committing. This is a solid run to mix it up.

Play: PA Shot Post (Part 1)

Setup:

  1. Put the A/X tight end on a streak
  2. Put the X/Square receiver on an in route
  3. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver in a step and hike it

Reads:

  1. The first read on this play is the B/O receiver quick on the wheel route
  2. If that is not there the next main read is the Y/Triangle receiver on the over route
  3. Finally, look for the X/Square receiver on the in route

Overview: As shown in the video this play can be literally every defense in Madden. Cover 3, Cover 4, and Man coverage will be vulnerable to the wheel route. While Cover 2 coverages will be beaten by the Y/Triangle receiver.

  3. Put the X/Square receiver on a comeback

Reads:

  1. The main read is the B/O receiver on the streak
  2. If that is not there look for the Y/Triangle receiver on the over route

Overview: This is a Cover 3 bomb play. The comeback on the left side of the field is going to hold the cornerback down leaving the streak wide open. The tight end on the streak on the right side of the field will hold the safety in the middle of the field long enough to throw it deep to the streak.

Overview: This is an overall zone beater; the video shows a couple different ways of how we attack all areas of the field no matter what the situation. Even if it is 3rd or 4th and long we have a way to attack it using this play.

Setup:

  1. Motion the Y/Triangle receiver to the right side and hike it

Reads:

  1. Follow the blocks
