I honestly didn't even think of that, great input JSizzle

I completely forgot about this thread. I've been working on some pretty detailed write ups breaking down a couple offensive schemes that I need to get working on again, but in the mean time here is some information I nabbed on the basic passing route tree, courtesy of one of my favorite sites for football breakdowns, The Football Times.






wide receiver routes patterns passing tree flag out post slant corner go

A relevant tidbits from the article...

Quote:
Here are some simple wide receiver patterns. Some people call this the "passing tree" or "passing routes." Every wide receiver needs to know these basic patterns and how to run them. The sharper and crisper your turns, the easier it will be for you to get open.

In this scheme, the odd numbered routes go to the outside, while the even number go inside. At the college and pro level, wide receiver will have to know the numbers that represent each pattern, and the play will be called like "689." The three wide receivers will know which number belongs to who.
The only correction I'd make is that including the route numbers in the playcall is nomenclature normally reserved for the Air Coryell offense used today by the Colts, Raiders, and Chargers. The nomenclature for the West Coast, Erhardt-Perkins and Amoeba offenses is different, which I'll expand upon in some upcoming posts.
