The 600-yard game is one of the performance goals that I print on a pocket-sized laminated ‘Performance Goals card’ that I hand out to every player, every season. A 600-yard game as a single-game goal is outrageous by conventional standards. Not for our offense. Its an expectation. Its part of our â€˜stretch goalâ€™ philosophy and strategy that can be used in any profession, not just football.
The 600-yard game is the focal point of the SWAT no-huddle book series. I just finished book 2 of the SWAT no-huddle offense series. Itâ€™s called â€œStretch Run & Stretch Play-Action.â€ Itâ€™s the second book that explains the installation plan of the limitless SWAT no-huddle. The stretch run and stretch play-action which forms part of the guts of high-octane system that can pile up serious yards in the face of major adversity – understaffed, underfunded, limited practice time. Why are yards important? Yards are one of the perfect-season analytics. Yards are a measure of what counts the most â€“ points scored. Yards are a barometer that scores the job efficiency of an offense. When our offense is incompetent, I refer to analytics to investigate and solve the problem. The starting point is yards-differential â€“ the number of yards gained versus given up. I donâ€™t use the phrase â€œyards allowed.â€ I used â€œyards given upâ€ because thatâ€™s what the cause is â€“ giving up. Yards-differential is hardcore evidence of solving the problem of offensive incompetence.
When I started my head coaching career, not one original thought entered my mind. Every thought was borrowed. Suffering a one-win nightmare rookie season is a powerful change agent. It was a message â€“ think outside the box. I did. I used every practice, every game, every season as a research to investigate what works in our reality. Thw SWAT no-huddel offense is a 3-decade work-in-progress that tries to solve the challenges we face in our own unique reality.
