Icon5 East Coast offense

Ok guys, First off I know The "East Coast Offense" in reality is the exact opposite of the "West Coast Offense" which tries to control the ball by using the short passing game. The east coast style relies on big plays to score, 4 vertical patterns, play-action deep balls, intermediate passing routes. I am thinking of Spurrier's Fun 'n Gun, the old Florida State Air Raid, etc.


Who would be the closest to run this on Madden 18. I am right now working with KC playbook (best WC playbook in the game "What I have heard" ) and West Coast generic playbook.

Um, actually the vertical "Mike Martz" type offense also originated on the West Coast in San Diego (and to a lesser extent, Oakland). It is usually called the Coryell offense or the digit system. If you mean like what New England runs, it is the Erhardt-Perkins system or the EP system, but what they actually call is similar to the West Coast system.

This gets even more confusing when you realize that in reality every team is basically running the same system just with different terminology: the West Coast terminology (going back to Bill Walsh in Cincinnati when he completely changed and revamped Paul Brown's scheme to the point that the two were constantly butting heads), the Digit terminology (where routes are given numbers- this is the system that the Air Coryell, Mike Martz and 1990s Dallas COwboys used), and the Erhardt-Perkins system (which instead carries route information in single word "concept" packages).

All three are cumbersome in the NFL, but the most cumbersome is probably the WCO, which by virtue of its wordiness is also the most adaptable- although in truth each can signify any concept, it would just require either additional words (Digit system) or additional concepts (EP system).

This article ^^ also includes the fact that Walsh's offense is only called the WCO because of a journalistic error.

This article is probably what you mean by "East Coast offense," as it is the "verticals offense" often spoken about in the NFL.

Re: East Coast offense

Anyway in terms of in game play books, I haven't seen them all but in Madden 17 the Cardinals playbook would be pretty good for that. So I would check that playbook out. I am pretty sure it has the same stuff and more in Madden 18, since Bruce Arians is pretty notorious for trying to push the ball down the field.

Bruce Arians is exactly what you're looking for.

Use the cards playbook.

I think this guy is right. Also we need more 49er logos in this thread.

I don't know how you get useless. I found it a pretty good read. Both on the "East" Coast and West Coast offense. I found my answers...thanks.

lol thanks. But mostly I meant in terms of Madden. I think the Cards is a good one. And the Saints too.

I figured that. I been looking for a playbook like Jon Gruden and found his brother runs a old school west coast like his bro does but, with a more of a power running game. I am loving the Skins playbook.
