The Flexbone Pistol Offense: The Inside Veer

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

This triple read, inside veer offense out of the shotgun is a unique concept that creates an offense your opponents will not want to line up against! For Art Craig, this proven offense has allowed his team to average 40 points per game and produced a state championship in 2011.

In this football DVD, Coach Craig lays out the differences between the standard Flexbone and his "Wolf-Gun" Offense and then shows you the multiple formation packages he uses to stress the defense to the breaking point. Using PowerPoint, coaching points, and game footage, Coach Craig will help you implement the Inside Veer into your Pistol Flexbone Offense.

Through his PowerPoint presentation, he outlines off-season and in-season practice schedules for the center and quarterback. He defines the key points to the two-handed "flip snap" and how it's practiced, including stance and hand placement. He also details the quarterback's stance and footwork through the use of his Option Tree to help create a more decisive quarterback.

Craig covers the key points to running the Inside Veer including how to use formations and motions to control your opponent's defense. Additionally, he covers his key points to the read and pitch, including drills to enhance these concepts.

Using game footage, Craig gives you a great look at his Inside Veer attack vs. various defensive fronts. You will be able to study the use of formations and no-huddle principles to gain an advantage on the opponent. Using practice video, Craig teaches the Inside Veer footwork for the quarterback using a progression from individual work up to adding a fullback.

As a bonus, Craig points out the importance of "thinking outside the box" and provides video of the tweaks he has made such as going to a no-back look.

If you want to put in an offense to dominate your opponent with the use of multiple formations and motions, the Pistol Flexbone is your answer. By adding the Inside Veer you will stretch and compress the defense on every snap!

The Flexbone Pistol Offense: The Midline Veer

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

In an era when all football coaches are looking for the next creative scheme and competitive advantage, Art Craig has merged two powerful, effective systems into one. He calls it The Timberland Wolf-Gun.

When you run the Midline Option from the Flexbone Pistol you get:

  • A cutting edge offensive scheme that blends the flexbone veer with the pistol formation
  • An explosive running play to a three technique defensive tackle
  • One of the toughest-to-stop short yardage plays in football
  • Blocking angles on every defender to break long runs
The key to the offense is a special two-hand center snap to a quarterback who is only 2 1/2 yards deep. This depth off the line allows the quarterback space and more time for his reads. Coach Craig, through his PowerPoint presentation, covers his off-season and in-season practice schedules for the center and quarterback. He defines the key points to the 2 handed "flip snap" and how that is practiced, including stance and hand placement.

Coach Craig shows you the multiple formation packages he uses to stress the defense to the breaking point. Master the mesh and mechanics of the Midline Option in the off season using Craig's unique options tree.

After showing you the mechanics, Craig diagrams the blocking scheme for the Midline before showing you game footage of the play from multiple formations as he coaches you up. One major advantage in the option game; you don't have to have overpowering offensive linemen. The Midline allows you to read a 3-technique defensive lineman to dive or keep--no one is assigned to block him. The Midline compliments the Inside Veer that is run to the 1-technique. This combination allows you to attack either side of the defense with an option attack.

Coach Craig's mix of "chalk talk" and game footage demonstrates how to incorporate motion and thoroughly details the nuances of executing the Midline versus all defensive fronts and adjustments.

With over 1-hour of run time, this DVD will help any coach looking for an innovative change with chapters explaining the advantages of the Midline, the implementation of the snap, the basics of the play, the "option tree" steps, practice drills and skills, and game-day cutups. Package this DVD with the Flexbone Pisotl Inside & Outside Veer videos and you too can see how his dynamic offense can dominate any defense.

The Flexbone Pistol Offense: The Outside Veer

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

When the game is on the line and you need a touchdown to win, the Outside Veer is your go-to play. Everyone on the field and in the stands will know it's coming, yet it can't be stopped.

When defenses load up to stop the inside veer Art Craig goes to his outside veer and gashes the defense for big yardage. Utilizing the outside veer within Craig's "Wolf-Gun" Offense you will experience:

  • How easy it is to install into your offense
  • The ability to attack the edge of a defense with lightning speed
  • A tremendous goal line play that is almost impossible to stop
  • Offensive formations that can outnumber and dominsate the defense
  • Practice strategies and drills to make your own Flexbone Pistol Offense unstoppable
The outside veer has always been a difficult play to stop. Out of the Flexbone Pistol the quarterback is 2 1/2 yards off the line of scrimmage and has more time to read his key for the dive or keep. This takes the outside veer to a whole new level and gets the ball to the edge of the defense quickly.

In addition to the sheer power this play possess, it is also easy to install. Coach Craig shows you the multiple formation packages he uses to stress the defense to the breaking point. Implementation of the special two-handed center snap is discussed and shown with practice video.

Coach Craig has his players work on the veer tree to master the mesh and mechanics of the outside veer in the off season and every Monday and Tuesday during the season. You will see video action of his players executing on the tree and learn the importance of making your own tree.

After you learn how to run the outside veer out of the Flexbone Pistol, Coach Craig shows you the outside veer using game footage to help you better understand the offense. Craig goes through game film and points out the weaknesses in the different defenses that he faces and the areas he likes to attack. He goes through the different areas of the field and the different situations in which the outside veer is most effective.

Give your offense a change up to the inside veer and gain big yards this season using the outside veer play!

The Flexbone Pistol Offense: Passing Game

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

Imagine defending the Flexbone from the shotgun, add to that a quick passing game, a sprint out package and a rock solid play action passing game. That would be a nightmare for any defensive coordinator, but a high scoring dream for you. Art Craig discusses his passing game and the use of multiple formations to create his unique combination offense.

Using arm bands to simplify the learning process for his players, Coach Craig shows you how he puts the package together using word association. He uses names instead of numbers for the plays, formations and pass protections. You'll get a detailed look at Craig's Wolf-Gun Flexbone quick game, play action, and sprint game, which allows you to:

  • Teach a simple yet effective passing game
  • Stress the defense to defend a strong passing game to go with the veer option
  • Create a unique offensive scheme that is fun to coach and fun for your players
The quick passing game is a polished and calibrated offensive force that will stun the defense with laser-like accuracy. You will learn to install a quarterback drop called the Turn 2 approach for the Quick Game. This technique will greatly reduce the possibility of a bad throw from your quarterback. Such calls as Falcon for the fade route, Reno for the read route, Ohio for the out & seam combination as well as six others make up the quick game. Each route is designed to be perfectly calibrated with the quarterback's drop. The quick game is shown using game footage as Craig discusses each play as well as the blocking calls and rules.

The Play Action Passing Game provides extra time for your quarterback because the defensive line must respect the possibility of the run. This will allow your wide receivers to move in space as aggressive, defensive play-makers' freeze to respect the play action. Using practice film, Craig coaches you through the quarterback steps on the jet sweep play action before showing you game film with Y-Seam, Switch, Radar, Wisconsin, Oscar, Lava and Plato Sideline routes. You will also learn which running plays compliment the Play Action Passing Game.

The Sprint Game adds yet another dimension to the explosive Flexbone Pistol Offense. An athletic quarterback can attack the perimeter of the defense by using his feet as a weapon. After showing you the correct footwork for the quarterback, Craig shows game footage to coach you through the Florida, Hammer, Flame, Trail and Read sprint out passing game.

This DVD would help any coach looking to add to his passing attack and makes the Flexbone Pistol Offense package an extremely effective, dangerous offense.

The Flexbone Pistol Offense: Complementary Plays

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

It's time to make the defense pay! If the defense is so concerned about stopping your option game, this is your chance to hit them for big gains and big plays.

Art Craig explains how to confuse defenses by adding complementary plays and multiple formations to the Flexbone Pistol Offense. He delivers six dynamic plays that complement the veer as well as formations and motions designed to outnumber your opponent at the point of attack. Coach Craig shares game video of the complementary plays as he coaches you through each play:

  • The Wolford Toss - Used to get the ball outside when the tackle box is loaded up to stop the veer package.
  • Counter Trey - Gives the offense a counter play that wreaks havoc on defenses that flow hard to the ball.
  • The Sweep Series - Another way to attack the perimeter of the defense for a team that does not have a great offensive line.
The offensive package would not be complete without an old school power play. The Super Power puts more bodies at the point of attack than is legal!

Coach Craig's mix of "chalk talk" and game footage demonstrates how to incorporate motion and thoroughly details the nuances of executing these plays versus all defensive fronts and adjustments to give the offense the advantage.

Regardless of your offensive scheme, the complementary plays and formations used in the Flexbone Pistol can be adapted to any offensive scheme and are sure to create a headache for the teams on your schedule.

The Flexbone Pistol Offense: Goal Line & No Huddle Packages

with Art Craig, Timberland (SC) High School Head Coach;
2011 2A State Champs; over a 4-year span (2008-11), Craig's teams have averaged 40 points a game running the Pistol Flexbone

Surprise the defense by starting your goal line offense at the 15 yard line!

Art Craig lays out his amazing attack plan for the red zone, which starts on the 15 yard line. Craig's philosophy is that the defense is not in the goal-line-stand mindset at the 15 yard line, which makes your offensive play book wide open from a Compressed Formation to a Spread Formation.

Coach Craig uses multiple formations, motions and set plays to create his high percentage red zone package. His unstoppable Flexbone Pistol goal line package includes:

  • The Eagle Formation which spreads the defense for his counter and passing game.
  • The Tiger Formation creates a tight end set.
  • The Red Formation is a double-tight, double-wing formation used for running the Outside Veer and the bone crunching Super Power.
Craig coaches you up with game footage and shows you how to benefit from the multiple formations to score at will in the red zone.

Included in this DVD is Craig's No-Huddle Offense thoughts and procedures that he has uses to dictate the speed of the game. Craig shows that you can call the No-Huddle several ways; with signals, wristbands or with numbers. The Flexbone Pistol uses a 20 play script in practice to prepare the quarterback and team for critical game decisions. The fast-paced Flexbone Pistol No Huddle Offense creates enormous pressure on the defense. If the defense does not align properly they are "in for a long night."

If your offense is struggling in the red zone or you want to implement the no-huddle offense this is a must-have DVD!
