    Misdirection is a big part of the Faster than the Fly offensive system. Quarterback and Tailback counters are run when defenses start over-pursuing the Rocket Sweep. Utilizing the Tailback in the Gun Rocket Counter game allows you to use the non-blocking slot to formation the defense. In this system we call those players, bonus players. When running quarterback counter you have 2-bonus players with the tailback and the slot that is not in motion. This allows you to use many formations to manipulate the defense. Also, when you run your quarterback it creates a true 11 on 11 situation. This is extremely effective when defenses play Cover-1 and Cover-0 trying to run a defender with rocket motion. It is also good against teams the stem linebackers or try to rotate safeties to the rocket motion side. Defenses have to do something to stop rocket sweep and when they start adjusting to the motion it’s time to hit them with Slot Counter using a guard/tackle blocking scheme.
