Gun Empty Ace Patriot

Playbook: New England Patriots

Formation: Gun Empty Ace Patriot

Play: Pats X Slant

Setup:

  1. (Optional) Use The TE Flip package
  2. (Optional) Sub in your #1 running back as the far right outside receiver
  3. Hot route your B/circle receiver to a streak route
  4. Hot route your Y/triangle receiver to a drag route

Reads:

  1. Your first read is always the A/X tight end on the slant to the corner. He is going to be open against 99% of coverages unless your opponent user covers him
  2. If he is covered, you can look to either the drag or the slant route
  3. Another decent option against zone is your other tight end on the seam route.

Overview: This is the main play we are going to call out of this formation.  It is incredibly hard to stop.  It is usually good for 5-15 yards every time.

Setup:

  1. (Optional) Use The TE Flip package
  2. (Optional) Sub in your #1 running back as the far right outside receiver
  3. Hot route your B/circle receiver to a streak route

Reads:

  1. Your primary read on this play is always your RB/R1 receiver underneath
  2. If he is covered, you can look to your X/square receiver

Overview: This play is extremely consistent but it is usually only good for about 5-7 yards.  The main purpose in running this play is to make sure our opponent can’t key in on the Pats X Slant play.

  3. (Optional) Put your X/square receiver on a drag route

Reads:

The is a sick ebook! I love this formation the most bc of the personnel. After you sling it through the air awhile your opponent will start coming out in a nickel/dime package and the. You can audible this right back to a power run formation and pound the rock. Really puts a lot of stress on opposing defenses.

If I’m running this formation in Hurry Up, are there any good plays that work the other side of the field with those two receivers?

What does “Use The TE Flip package” mean?
