Scoring in the Red Zone is essential to all offenses. Teams that are in the Spread can have problems when they get inside the 20.
I divide the Red Zone into 3 Sections 20-13, 13-5, 5-0. In my experience that is when the defense makes changes, at the 13 and then again at the 5.
#1 High 20-13
Think normally, think Smash and Snag concepts in the passing game and stay normal in the run game.
Smash for us is
#1 WR has an IN
#2 WR has an IN
#3 WR has a CORNER
3 man Snag have worked great for us... pretty standard
#1 WR has the SNAG
#2 WR has the CORNER
#3 WR has the BUBBLE
We had success with 2 new variations this of Red Zone offense due to our use of an H-Back this past season!
#2 From the 13 -5
We run a lot of Inside Zone slice and Run Pass Options. We used this to our advantage, especially because for us a number of the teams we play play man coverage in the Red Zone. Here are two clips of us using a play-action shot in the Red Zone! We would motion a back into the backfield and fake Inside Zone Slice with a wheel concept.
#3 Inside the 5
Our Best Play this year inside the 5 was getting a H-back and TE in the game with the ability to run Inside Zone Slice Downhill at teams. But most teams will put 9 in the box and go press man on the outside so our QB could throw fade to either side
Have a game plan for the Red Zone in the Spread.
Don't be afraid to have a heavy package inside the 5, H-backs, double tights or Single Wing.
