Apparently a high school team in California has figured out a way to never use lineman in their offense. It's apprarently legal, but I can't figure it out.

Deadspin has a post about it here. (http://deadspin.com/5029029/the-a+11-wave-of-the-future-or-satans-offense)

It has a webpage that has all the details here (http://a11offense.com/).

It's pretty tricky in the way that it changes QB's and motions different people as blockers. Sounds like a nightmare for referees to follow though since everyone is technically eligible before the snap.

If a coach tried that in the NFL, I'd show them a continuous loop video of Bob Sanders highlights until they came to their senses.

only legal in HS:

""In the NCAA this offense would not be legal because there is added language in the (formation) rule that says 'it must be obvious that a kick may be attempted.'"


Also the NFL has limitations on uniform numbers and eligibility.

This is a gimmick high school offense.

At the very least, this would be very fun to watch - Highly doubt that this would be successful at any professional level, although I have a feeling that the Colts would be one of the very few teams that could make this work for about a game or two until the rest of the league figures out how to deal with it.

Imagine Harrison, Wayne, Clark, Gonzalez, Hall, Aromashodu, Addai, and Rhodes all doing slant routes in different directions on the same play - That would be hilarious and confusing to watch.

Hmmmm...

Interesting...

A good passing team with quick receivers off the line could have an advantage here provided:

1) they find a way to make it legal in the NFL;

2) the receives all know how to read the defense and pick up a man; and,

3) the QB's both have quick releases and cannons for arms because they'd undoubtedly get blitzed often with this formation. They'd also need to know how to read the defense because the blitz could come from either side or right down the middle.

Otherwise, it could work.

It would probably work in HS and College but no way in NFL. The spread offense doesn't even work in the NFL how is this going to work?
