I want to tell you how much I think of the Ultimate Game Planning System that you recently released. I picked it up yesterday and can already tell how much it is going to help me streamline the game planning process and save me all of the time it takes to script everything for the course of the week.
Thanks again for all of your help coach!
Coach Schelb hits the nail right on the head with what the Coaches Edge Game Planning System is designed to do – streamline the process and save time. The system allows you to plan for every situation you will face, and automates your scripting while ensuring that each play in your game plan gets the amount of reps it needs to be effective on game day.
The system is adjustable to create any mix of run or pass ratio you wish to have in practice. Once you make the decisions about what you want in your game plan, enter it in the “game plan board” and the rest of the work is completed for you. Practice scripts, call sheets , and a quarterback wristband are generated for you. You save a minimum of 8 hours per week and have the confidence that you gave your offense enough work to be ready for the situations they will face.
Also included are printable work sheets for your game plan preparation, as well as a post game report for quality control.

All of this is available to you for just $99 one time. You do not have to subscribe to yearly. Get it here:
Coaching Concepts Update
Part 2 in the four part series of iBooks I am releasing through Coaches Edge Technologies is in the works, and should be to you by the Holidays. In it, in-depth examination of Language, Protections, Drop Back Passing, and Complimenting the Drop Back Game will be backed up with interactive video and presentations. New ideas used during the 2014 season will be introduced, and will prove to be a primer to Part 3 (covering teaching and installing) and Part 4 (covering game planning and adjustments) to be released in the spring.
With Part 1 already being available (here), we are hoping to provide an excellent resource for your team’s off-season development and beyond. This series ISN’T just about the drop back passing game; it will be about efficiency and balance, as some of our most successful clients were able to run the ball downhill through a variety of schemes — which will be discussed in the series.
I’m really excited about this work, as it will help coaches from any system.
Save 8-10 hours every game week and get more quality out of your game planning!
With the Coaches Edge Game Planning System, create a more efficient and effective practice script. Getting the plays in the game plan the necessary reps for them to be effective on game day is no longer a pain staking task. Simply enter the game plan at the beginning of the week, and the script is created for every single group and team period during the week. The hours spent creating a script and making sure every play gets the necessary practice it needs is now automated.
Up-Tempo and Standard Tempo templates are included!
Easily Adjusts to match your offense!
Call sheet, Practice Scripts & QB wristband are generated instantly as you game plan.
Plan for all situations you will face.
Reduce the stress on the play caller.
Give players confidence that they are prepared for all circumstances.
Improve work flow and free up time to watch opponent film and teach players.
Coaches Edge Game Planning System uses a simple process for making decisions early in the week that allow you to get the practice repetitions that will ensure the proper execution on game day.
Even though you may have an expansive, flexible offense over the course of the season, thinking you have that wide menu of plays can lead to confusion for both the play caller and the players. The fact is that there are only a limited amount of practice repetitions available, and you will only call about 60 plays (more if you are an uptempo team) in the game.
Being able to exercise discipline on your process by limiting the amount of plays that will appear on your call sheet on game day is the at the core of the Coaches Edge Game Planning System.
Sample Game Plan Adjustment
This is done on what is called the Game Plan Board.
The Game Plan Board gives a set number of plays which you can carry and feel confident in practicing over the course of the week. In general, the game plan board and scripts are set up to give you 50-50 balance between run and pass. If you desire to practice more running plays or more passing plays, see the “Adjusting” instructions included in each section. This allows you to create the balance you desire.
On USA Football:
The postseason provides time to review and identify both areas of success and areas needing improvement. Focusing attention on the run game, analysis should uncover information that will be helpful in preparing for next season. Modern video editing systems allow coaches to generate reports and video cutups so the process is made easier. Being able to analyze three key numbers can help identify areas needing improvement for the next season.

On American Football Monthly:
The off season gives a coaching staff the opportunity to go back and evaluate their work from the previous season. Done in detail, the process can serve to identify the effectiveness of passing concepts. By charting key data on each play, the coaching staff can pin point correct assignment and technique, as well as developing coaching points and drills to improve the effectiveness of the play. Just looking at the statistical data only tells part of the story. For example, our “Takeoff Change” concept on 3rd down and long (6+ yards to go) had a 72% conversion rate. In general, that statistic tells us we should be calling that play more on third and long. This might be true, but we have the opportunity to learn much more about that 72% and why it worked as well as why it didn’t.
Analyzing some factors can help us replicate or improve the success of this concept in the next season, as well as anticipate what the defense may do to adjust it. We know the opponent will be studying our film as well, and seeing what stopped the play should be something we have a clear understanding of as well. This process also works for concepts that were not successful. Again, just seeing the completion rate or yards per attempt may not tell the whole story. A few adjustments may make that concept effective. The point is, quality control work must be done to get the whole picture…read more
Dan Gonzalez is on the cutting edge of offensive strategy. He has a client whose quarterback accounted for a total of 1,091 yards in two games (580yd and 511 yd). 667 yards and 8 touchdowns (no picks) were through the air, and 424 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground. Yes, the quarterback is very talented, but those kind of numbers are only possible with a great system, and Dan provides an innovative offense. Learn more about in his book. Developing an Offensive System: A Need for Change.
Dan Gonzalez explains how to create a system from the ground up, taking into account that the concepts and techniques should be able to be learned at the youth level as well. He’s created a communication system that allows the coach to guide the quarterback’s thought process on the field on a down-by-down basis. Moreover, the teaching and procedures throughout the system demand mutual accountability between the player and coach. Gonzalez’s takes into account everything that is needed to develop a full offensive attack.
