Below I will breakdown some film, using screenshots from Madden NFL 2012. The idea is to put words with pictures, to provide a vivid demonstration of how the play will work. This will somewhat resemble film, that coaches use to game-plan with.
In Part 1, I will explain how the New York Jets could/should use Tim Tebow in their run-first offensive system.
How can Tebow deliver as a Halfback?
2WR-Holmes/Hill, 1TE-Keller, 1FB-Conner, 1 HB-Tebow, 1QB -Sanchez
This is what the I-formation will look like when Tebow is playing Halfback, and the camera is close up, focusing left. When Sanchez throws the halfback toss, Tebow will be looking at a 3 vs. 3 matchup as the offense flows to the left. Tebow’s man can be considered the option guy.
- WR Stephen Hill vs. CB Terrelle Thomas
- FB John Conner vs. DE Jason Pierre-Paul (or Antrell Rolle)
- HB Tim Tebow vs. FS Antrell Rolle (or JPP)
Hill would be lined up left, and run a GO-route. This forces the Cornerback to strictly choose, either to defend the run OR the pass. He simply cannot defend both.
