FirstDown PlayBook Installs: February 6-12
By FirstDown PlayBook on Feb 6, 2018

Well, we are all getting ready for 2018 now and that includes all thirty two NFL teams. Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on earning the right to call themselves “World Champions”. That’s a hard thing to accomplish. The Eagles, Alabama and all of the other colleges, high schools and youth programs that won their championships this year should be saluted!

But you know what? Today all of those teams are doing exactly what you are doing. Trying to find a way to get better for 2018. That’s what is great and hard about this business. The successes and failures affect us so much but the next day we all go back to doing the same thing. Trying to be the best coach or football player we can be.

So with that little bit of philosophical banter we introduce you to this week’s FirstDown PlayBook install.

We are going to start the week off with a 6v6 Flag Football install. We want to get the play number up in this area where it is the same as our other flag football areas. We know you tackle guys cringe when we do this but flag football is doing a lot to help develop our younger football players and it is also keeping a lot of adults interested in our game because it’s allowing them to play football into their adult life and stay healthy as they do it! That’s good for our game.

Later in the week we are going to finish up our Two Back Slot DropBack pass game upgrade and additions. FirstDown PlayBook personally loves this formation because if you have the right fullback, that two back formation can become a one back formation in a couple of steps and present a whole new set of problems for a defense.

Finally, this weekend we are going to really dig into the unbalanced run game more. Last week as we started this it really sparked a lot of conversation from you coaches in our email in box. It was very useful.

Our thinking is to start with short yardage and goal line unbalanced runs and move from that to the base run stuff. Of course you can run about anything from unbalanced and we are learning that you guys do.  This is going to be a fun install over the next few weeks as we continue to grow it!

Okay, enough of our jabber. Here is your FirstDown PlayBook install for this week. Let’s get working on 2018 now that every team in the country has a win loss record of 0-0!
