    The Faster than the Fly Down Scheme is the main flow-side off-tackle scheme along with traditional Power. This is not your traditional Down Scheme, some adjustments based on running it out of the gun have been made to make it more effective by staying solid on the playside and pulling the backside guard instead. The flow of rocket sweep softens the edge making it easier to kick-out playside edge defenders. The timing from gun meshes up better pulling the backside guard. This play can be run by your slots/wings, tailback, and quarterback making it true 11 on 11 football. With the development of an RPO scheme blended in, this really puts guard and backfield reading linebackers in conflict.
