I saw this link when I was browsing through Smart Football, Chris Brown's excellent blog. It is pretty basic stuff, but the beauty of football is that for all of its complexity, it can (sometimes) be distilled down into some pretty simple, but powerful, ideas.

Someone asked me at a clinic this year, "what makes a great football play?" My answer was stolen from something Mike Leach once said. "A play where you don't have to block many dudes."
