What are your thoughts for Offensive Line/Defensive Line?

If you were told the league might be mandating 2 point stance next year, would you start coaching the 2 point stance now, or would you keep the 3 point stance since that's what everyone else was doing?

Is there anyone that currently runs O-line all in 2 point stance?

Two point stance from Tackle to Tackle is illegal in the league we play in.

I use 2pt stances on the online.  Check with Coach DP as conversations with him gave me the confidence to switch a couple of years ago.  It has advantages and disadvantages like anything else.

I switched to 2 pts last season after running out of 3 pts for the prior 3 years.  We were still able to stress staying low and maintain decent technique.  Had one major benefit as we were running DCSW - it was harder guys defense to see which back had the ball which added to our deception.  Our blocking back crouched low behind or tackle and virtually disappeared.  Highly recommend it.

--Never used it for defense.

--I've been comfortable with teaching the 2-point stance for years, with youth, middle school and our high school teams.

Is there anyone that currently runs O-line all in 2 point stance?

--Currently?  Last season, we gave our linemen the choice to play in whatever they were most comfortable in.  Our starting Left Guard and a backup Tackle used 2-point; everyone else was in a 3.

I have my o line in two pts as well.  I like to pass and it really helps with pass pro.  Also it is a bit less taxing on them in a no huddle offense.  Or u can line up and not snap the ball while the d line is in a 3pt.  Just make them hold their stances for thirty seconds while the o line is just chillin in a two pt.

I have just finished updating my PowerPoint on the 2-point stance, for anyone who's interested.

To be good you have to work hard. To be better, you have to work harder. To be great, you have to keep working when the good ones stop.

Jack, it's been sent.  I know that you were championing the 2-point stance well before I ever used it.
