2. I think there are more than 4. There's the obvious 4-3 and 3-4...then there's Cover 2, 4-6, 5-2, 4-4, Nickel, Dime, 6-1, and more. I've seen 'em all. But then again you said common so I'd have to say: 4-3, 3-4, Cover 2, and 4-6. The rest are pretty uncommon.

6. 15 yards and a first down?

9. the Broncos?

19. was it Bill Walsh? I can't remember

6, 9, and 19 are right. I'm looking for some older defenses that aren't used so much anymore. For one of them, think Doug Plank and the BEars. For the other one, think of a popular college defense. 4-3 and 3-4 are my other two. If you guys stil get stumpted, I'll give a hint that wil probably give it away, but oh well.

OK, I'll try #7... :-o

I'm pretty sure in a counter play, one of the guards backs off the line and runs to the other side of the field while the other linemen block towards the side he's running away from in order to take his assignment and force the defense to that side. The RB takes the ball, fakes to the side that was vacated by the guard, and then heads the other way trying to find the hole (hopefully) created by the pulling guard and the edge of the blocking on the other side. Maybe that's a counter "trey," but I think I said what I wanted to say. :-)

Broncos are definitely right for 9...however, SF's got the market on leg-whipping. ;-)

10 - Maybe the opposite of the draw is the dive? It's basically going down the middle except you get the ball right away instead of delaying a little bit.

4 - The bootleg one...I'll say "naked bootleg," "rollout," and "waggle." I don't know if any are right, but they sound good.

I thought the T and the full house were the same...you put a FB in and split TB's behind him so it looks like a T. Now, the "pro-form" set (49ers used all the time ;-D ) put the FB and RB back in a split formation flanking the QB on both sides.

Would play-action pass be the opposite of a draw?

1) Did John McKay of the Bucaneers use the 3-4 first?
3) A check-off is an audible.
11) Is a drop kick is sometimes called a pooch punt?
12) the T formation is when the QB is behind the center and the HB and FB are parallel to eachother forming a T.
13) I think a full house backfield is when there is a HB and two FBs in the backfield.
14) The Jumbo package is a short yardage or goalline set up where you have a double TEs with a tub of lard player like Warren Sapp, or the Fridge, with a FB and HB.
15) Was it the Miami Dophins no-nome D of the 70s?
16) Red dog is a blitz, we called it mad dog in HS
17) Single wing was popular when Red Grange rule the game?
18) Is the Veer option a sweep type of play where the QB can either keep the ball, give it to the FB on a gut play, or toss it to the HB on a outside sweep-style play?
Is the unbalanced alignment one where the linemen are lined up in front of the gaps instead of in front of the player?

Mercer: 7 is wrong, 9 is right, 10 is wrong, 4 is wrong

Maddog: wrong

Mooch: 1) WRONG 3) RIGHT 11) WRONG 12) WRONG 13) RIGHT 14)
RIGHT 15) RIGHT 16) RIGHT 17) WRONG (I'm looking for years) 18)
RIGHT

Guys for the bonus, give me a common alignment with "E" for end, "T" for tackle, "C" for center, adn "G" for guard. an example would be "E_T_C_G_G_T_E"

so far mooch is in the lead!!

There's no way mine was totally wrong...it had to be close at the very least... :,-(

OK, so the tackle and guard pull to the other side...what about that? :-?
