Offensive Strategy — Spread Offense Diagram

American football is about using so-called defensive, offensive and special team players as well as the execution of the plays in the sport game of the American football, where there is a vast array of positions, strategies, plays, types of play calling systems and formations utilized. Such term as a "game plan" is simply a strategy for a particular game.

The objective of each of the used offenses is to simply score the points. Thus, the players and coaches plan is based on a variety of factors, involving the players, the opponent's defensive strategy, the number of points needed in order to win the game and the amount of time remaining before the end or the halftime of the game. The offense is known to be able to prolong their possession of the ball for preventing the opponent from scoring, involving three types of players: receivers, linemen and backs, whose duties and positions on the field vary, depending on the offensive scheme.

The position names vary from one team's playbook to another. The most commonly used are Linemen, who can be Center, Guard or Tackle. The Center is known to be a player snapping the ball to the so-called “quarterback”, “running blocking” in a way of pushing the defenders away from the ball carrier on a running play, and “passing the blocking” by stopping the defenders from tackling the quarterback or simply disrupting. Being responsible for calling the blocking schemes on the line, the “center” Linemen are those who are telling the other linemen which of the defenders have to be blocked.

The Guards are known to be lining up on both sides from the center, being usually bigger than the center and so better run blockers rather than the so-called “pass blockers”. And the Tackles are the "bookends" of the offensive line, who are simply the biggest offensive linemen, having the great foot and hand coordination for being able to successfully protecting against the pass rushes. Once some team has a right-handed quarterback, then the left tackle can be the best pass blocker on the line for a reason of them being responsible for preventing a "blindside" pass rush that the quarterback might miss if it catches him out of the blue.

The “Backs” are the players of the American football named this way because of lining up behind the line of scrimmage at the start of the play. They can be “Quarterbacks”, “Fullbacks” and “Halfbacks”. The Quarterbacks are those who line up directly behind the center of the field, taking the ball from that position to put it back into the play. The quarterback's main responsibility is to pass the ball or to hand the ball to a running back — the one who carries the ball downfield.

Sometimes, the mentioned “quarterbacks” can even act as a receiver for being able to catch a pass thrown by another player during a so-called "trick play". In most of the cases, the quarterback is the one communicating with the other players the play they are going to run. It is very important for all the quarterbacks to be able to throw the ball accurately, “to read” the defenses and make the correct decisions very quickly.

At the same time, the Fullbacks are known to be lining up behind the quarterback, being involved in blocking, running and, sometimes, catching the passes. The fullback in many of the offensive schemes is known to be considered as a running back. But this player is usually more physical and bigger to compare to the other running backs on the team, involved in blocking. Although, the Halfbacks are those, who line up behind the quarterback and sometimes behind the fullback. Their responsibilities are: to run the ball, to catch the passes, to block, and sometimes even to throw the ball on the “trick plays”.

Playing American football, it is important to know about the so-called “offenses”. One of such offenses is called as a “spread offense” — an offensive scheme used at every level of the game. The spread offenses are those placing the quarterback in the shotgun formation. Many of them also employ a so-called “no-huddle approach”, and some use the so-called “read option running play” for putting the pressure on both sides of the defense itself.

And even if you know a lot about American football and the mentioned offensive strategies, in particular, it is still very important to keep a track of them mentioning the existing ones in a way of a drawing — for example, a scheme or a plan created in the appropriate drawing application, such as a ConceptDraw DIAGRAM one. If you feel like you need help in creating such plan, then you can always rely on the developers of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as they are the IT specialists working for CS Odessa creating the so-called “solutions”, which are all meant to be used for simplifying the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users work with drawing the mentioned schematics.

You only need to install the necessary software ant it’s libraries and you’ll have one less problem during the building projection. Any building contains a number of electrical systems, including switches, fixtures, outlets and other lightening equipment. All these should be depicted in a building electrical plans and included to general building documentation. This home electrical plan displays electrical and telecommunication devices placed to a home floor plan. On the plan, each electrical device is referenced with the proper symbol. Electrical symbols are used for universal recognition of the building plan by different persons who will be working on the construction. Not all possible electric symbols used on a certain plan, so the symbols used in the current home plan are included to a legend. The electrical home plan may be added as a separate document to a complete set of building plans.House Electrical Plan Software

Types of Flowcharts →

A flowchart is a simple but very functional tool when it comes to understanding a workflow or to removing unnecessary stages from a process. When drawing flowcharts, keep in mind that there are four common types of flowcharts, like document flowcharts and data flowcharts that show control over a data or document flow over a system. To show controls on a physical level, use system flowcharts. In addition, to show controls in a program, you can draw a program flowchart. This flowchart diagram represents the piece of an article editing process, that involves the author and editor. It was created using the Basic Flowchart notation that consists from the basic flowchart symbols. The start and the end of the process are indicated with "Terminator" symbols. The "Process" symbols show the action steps consisting from making edits and searching for a compromise, when the author does not agree with the suggestions of the editor. The "Process" symbol is the general symbol in process flowcharts. The "Decision" symbol indicates a branching in the process flow. There are two branches indicated by a Decision shape in the current flowchart (Yes/No, Disagree/Agree). This basic flowchart can be used as a repeating unit in the workflow diagram describing the working process of some editorial office.Types of Flowcharts *

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning →

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data. This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning
