It a naming convention for personnel groupings. The formula is always HB+TE+WR and it always equals 5 because that the most eligible receivers allowed. You use the numerals of the HB and TE as the personnel groupings name and HB(this includes FB when applicable) are always listed first. So a formation with 2 backs and 2 TE would be 22 personnel. 1 back and 0 TE is 10 personnel, etc....

Some popular personnel examples:

0 HB 0 TE 5 WR= 00 personnel
0 HB 1 TE 4 WR= 01 personnel
1 HB 0 TE 4 WR= 10 personnel
1 HB 1 TE 3 WR= 11 personnel
1 HB 2 TE 2 WR= 12 personnel
1 HB 3 TE 1 WR= 13 personnel
2 HB 0 TE 3 WR= 20 personnel
2 HB 1 TE 2 WR= 21 personnel
2 HB 2 TE 1 WR= 22 personnel
2 HB 3 TE 0 WR= 23 personnel

Aren't Gun Monster and Gun Monster Stack illegal formations? You have to have 5 linemen on the line. They added that rule after the Patriots used a 6th receiver as a decoy.

Pretty sure I can recall seeing the gun monster used last year. I think it was the browns. Maybe Cincinnati.. not 100% sure who it was.

Not illegal. They just made it so you had to declare with more time before the snap. Kind of limited the surprise factor.

I think in this situation the team will have some special name for it. I believe back in the day when the niners would go super heavy it was called the "Angus" package. I heard other stuff like "loaded" and such attached to it as well.

Also it still has 7 on the LOS and all OL are covered up so it's legal.
