Breaking down Bill Walsh’s “drive” concept with Miami OC Jedd Fisch

Hat tip:

If you want more detail into Walsh’s “drive” concept, read more about it here. (Also see here for more detail on the “smash” concept Fisch shows on the backside.) Lastly, Fisch has already shown that a lot of his passing game is built on putting different concepts or “beaters” to each side; for more on that idea, see here and here.

    So I would guess that if you’re packaging sides on this play MOFC would lead you to the shallow, Dig, Burst Triangle Read and MOFO would lead you to the smash read?

    Something like that would be my guess. If you’re concerned with a RAT or robber player versus Cover 1 you might be willing to work the smash to shallow to get away from that congestion over the middle.

    As I recall from his time at Minnesota, Jedd Fisch’s passing game was built mostly on installing so many sets that his kids got two illegal formation penalties per series.

    That Minnesota offense was a debacle; it obviously remains to be seen whether he’s learned from that mistakes and from his time in the pros.

    That would mean he probably keeps it all about concepts and has a focus on a way to sequence from formations or players for given position(probably due field placement) and checks(due situations). Then work matchups after that, since the defense can also change matchups.

    That would help him find multiple ways of doing the same thing so his effeciency would be maximized.
    If one wanted to focus more on matchups it would be on the basis of a constant, such as the results of a no huddle set.
