Zone Blocking Scheme videos

I found these videos today. I'm a football nerd, especially when it comes to O-line schemes and techniques. These videos feature Alex Gibbs teaching his system (ZBS) to the coaches at the University of Florida. I believe this was filmed during the Spring of 2006 or 2007. Urban Meyer was the HC at the time and Dan Mullen was the OC. They were/are considered some of the best offensive minds in college football. Alex Gibbs was employed by the Atlanta Falcons at the time this was filmed. Gibbs wasn't there just to teach his system, he also wanted to learn more about Zone Read offense and running these systems out of shotgun. He also talks about technique, not just scheme. I know many of y'all know all about ZBS, but there are a few reason why I thought this would be good to share:

  • -It's July. No football and the Astros suck
  • -I've seen comments that several people don't know the "X's and O's." Well...here you go.
  • -We have a revamped O-line. It would be good to know what we should look for in the new starters.
  • -He also discusses what he looks for out of his TE, FB, and RB

Hope y'all enjoy the videos. They are long. Each one of the 5 is about 50 minutes. I liked the 4th video a lot. They spend a great deal of time discussing the naked bootleg, my favorite play in the Texans playbook. It features several plays of Schaub running it as a Falcon. If y'all have any questions about the terminology, feel free to ask me.
