21 Muggles

“Muggles” is a nice way of saying “pick.” WR1 and WR2 run in tandem up the field, with WR2 breaking out to the outside just as WR1 makes his “in” move. If the safety picks up the pick by shifting to the outside, the middle of the field is open to either WR1 (if he’s able to regain his speed) or WR4, who’s just then cutting across the middle for a solid 10 yard gain.

The secondary play here is for the left side receivers to draw all the attention away from WR3, who, if everyone else is covered, is streaking across an empty field with room towards the sidelines. Not a huge yardage play, but can potentially break with some good blocking upfield.

Personnel: Try this one with your fastest guy at WR1; it might help enduce confusion when he suddenly stops his route to pick WR2’s man.

Pre-snap reads: drop down to WR3 on the blitz.


TripleFP: A Manifesto


  • I hate searching for some flag football plays only to be told to pay for them;
  • I hate not finding any good books in my library or online for coming up with anything resembling a flag football playbook or a good strategy guide;
  • I love football and flag football;
  • I love football strategy: seeing a good gameplan unfold, a good play well executed, and a good player doing their job;
  • I want a place to record my thoughts about my own games and observations, as the seasons unfold;

Therefore, be it resolved:

  1. TripleFP will provide free flag football plays, to anyone and everyone. The only thing you’ll ever see on here with a pricetag is a bound edition of collected plays (to defray printing costs) and merchandise, if it comes to that.
  2. TripleFP will provide free flag football strategies and strategy guides, to anyone and everyone, with the same stipulations as in the preceding paragraph.
  3. TripleFP will provide an ongoing blogging space for my football thoughts and observations, and will make this a communal space to allow others to do the same.
