There are times throughout games, especially when you are playing a opponent who you face regularly, where the defense will start to anticipate the offensive plays. Whether it’s from receiving the pull or after a stoppage in play, once the defense has “figured out” the offensive strategy, it becomes easier for the defense to anticipate what areas of the field and what types of cuts the offense is focusing on.
The idea behind this tactic is for the offense to “regain the initiative” or take back control of how the play unfolds on the field, by first starting play in a Vertical formation and then transition into a Horizontal offense.
