    A-gap B-gap diagram, etc.

    This is a great site that discusses the gaps and a few other things. But since I never really understood what the "gaps" were, I thought I would share my findings.

    Hole numbering assignments can be shown on the same type of diagram. If you ever heard, "the rb runs through the 6 hole" or any other number. I beleive odd numbers are to the left and even numbers are to the right.

    So between the
    C and RG is the 0 hole
    RG and RT is the the 2 hole
    RT and TE is the 4 hole
    Outside the TE is the 6 hole

    C and LG is the 1 hole
    LG and LT is the 3 hole
    LT and TE is the 5 hole
    outside the TE on the left is the 7 hole
    I just thought this was relevant.
    Anyway, these numbers are used to name plays
    I-right 25 blast would be a run play to the left side between the LT and TE.
    I= I formation(RB, FB, TE, 2 WR's)
    right=TE lines up on right side
    2=RB(Qb=1, RB=2, FB=3)
    5=hole
    blast=specific type of running play

    Actually it is
    C RG 2
    RG RT 4
    RT TE**6 (if no TE then it is considered OFF Tackle)
    OUTSIDE 8

    C LG 1
    LG LT 3
    LT 5 **(if no TE then it is considered OFF Tackle)
    OUTSIDE 7

    Some pople use a left to right system starting with left outside 9 and right outside 1 ie 9,8,7....2,1

    The system we use here in our team in the UK league is as follows.

    Gap numbering offensively is odd numbers left - 1,3,5,7 even numbers right -2,4,6,8. So a run to the gap between left guard and left tackle would be to the 3 gap.

    Back numbering:
    1 - QB
    2 - FB
    3 - RB

    So for instance, one play we run is called: I right 33 Indiana. The I denotes I formation for the RB and FB. Right is where the TE lines up. The first three in the number sequence means the number 3 back, ie the RB, and the second number in the sequence means the gap number 3. Indiana is simply a way of denoting that its an inside run hence the I for Indiana/Inside.

    The reciever lining up on the TE side is always off line....
