In today’s Madden-School.com free Madden 25 tip, we will be breaking down a play out of the Strong Pro formation called Falcons Option.
The play possesses a very unique option route that works against all kinds of coverages.
Playbook: Atlanta Falcons (and many others)
Formation: Strong Pro
Play: Falcons Option
- Hot route your B/circle receiver to a streak and motion him to the left
- Hot route your FB to block
- Hot route your halfback to a swing left
- (Optional) Slide protect left
- Your primary read is your X/square receiver on the option route.
- If he is covered, your Y/triangle receiver should be open in the flat
- Your tight end on the corner route on the other side of the field may also be open.
Madden School Pro Tip: Use a wide receiver with good route running and a decently high overall to run the option route.
