Setup:

  1. None Required

Reads:

  1. Hand it off and follow the blockers
  2. Throw the Bubble Screen

Overview: This is one of the most effective runs in the game this is because man people use some sort of man coverage to stop the run. This play forces the strong side of the defense to be on the left while we run the ball to the right. If the opponent base aligns we can simply throw the Bubble Screen every time.

These are awesome plays. However, just so people know, while this formation is in other playbooks as the video says; the selection of plays in the other playbooks is not the same as they are in the Run N’ Gun playbook. So, there doesn’t seem to be a way to include these plays in any kind of custom playbook.

The Run n Gun outside runnning plays are tremendous, so these passing plays are fantastic additions
