The above video proves one thing: Defenses hate option football plays.

When you have option offense football plays in your package and your team runs seven or eight options a game, you’ll be termed an “option team,” and you’re right away forcing defenses to be assignment-conscious instead of only being pursuit-conscious.

The thing we like about option football is that it severely limits the stunts, blitzes, and coverages that defenses can use. Option football plays greatly enhance the offensive threat.

After learning a little bit about why defenses hate option football, you’ll be able to watch a few clips that prove this exact point.
