Here is my attempt to use your PP, it will probably be more confusing.

That is very helpful. I have a similar document that explains the intricacies of the SW spinning backfield.....with little footprints !

It's funny it takes pages to explain, yet I teach it in under a minute on the field. It's really just a progression of the things I have learned over the years.

You are trying to teach people to dance with the written word. Your diagram summed it all up for me and I already kinda knew what you were describing. Now its clear as day.  🙂

Then awesome!

The first day we do all this it looks like all our QB's ride those short buses. It takes many reps to make it look seamless. Their Arms look like they cross, & their legs look like a bear in a trap. Once they begin to feel comfortable, then everything else becomes easy.

Joe,

I have been looking at the powerpoint of the footwork you posted.  Would the attached be close to what you are talking about when it comes to the complete footwork process including the Crow Hop and J-step?

Nice job, the only thing is on the crow hop both feet move at the same time.

Dan's powerpoint covers the footwork for stretch/power from Pistol. But, let's talk from Gun. Here is what I think I know:

TB moves up 1/2 a yard so his heels are roughly at the QB's toes. TB opens with playside foot to 5 o'clock, toe pointed at sideline, and tries to get shoulders parallel to the sideline on 2nd step. His angle is flat until he gets outside the tackle then it is just Stretch (run to daylight).

QB takes snap while stepping playside with the playside foot and his eyes go to the read (playside contain). Now he crop hops and executes the quarter turn disconnect based on the read. J step is with the backside foot at the A gap and he follows the pulling guard, reading his block.

How did I do?

Gun there is no "J" step. The ride is a 1/4 turn disconnect. You are very close, if you want come up to practice one day & I can have my guys show you live.

Better that you can cry to me in person then. I'll bring some Kleenex.

Is today a good day to come up or should I wait a couple days? If it's good, what time do you start?

I hear a rumor that some of our former players are going to be starting on offense this year. I hope they don't stink!

Stopped by Joe's practice today and got the info I needed. Much easier to understand the footwork when I saw it live. For the lurkers, here is the modified post from above:

TB moves up 1/2 a yard so his heels are roughly at the QB's toes. TB opens with playside foot to 5 o'clock, toe pointed at sideline, and tries to get shoulders parallel to the sideline on 2nd step. His angle is flat until he gets outside the tackle then it is just Stretch (run to daylight).

QB takes snap while stepping playside with the playside foot and his eyes go to the read (playside contain). Now he crow hops and executes the quarter turn disconnect based on the read. He steps with the backside foot at the A gap (not a J step) as the TB clears and follows the pulling guard, reading his block.
