Chalk Talk: Scouting how the Ravens use formations and motions

What offensive formations and motions tell a defense.

Every offense has formation tendencies.

The reason this is the case is the same reason why offenses run multiple formations to begin with. Certain formations are better for certain plays than others.

In this video, I use the Ravens to talk about the different qualities of formations and what they mean. I talk about gaps, fullbacks, h-backs, and running back alignments. Finally I talk about motions. After all, running a motion creates a new formation.

Check out the video on the Ravens’ formations and motions and what plays they like to run out of certain alignments.

All of the film review content will be on SB Nation’s Cincy Jungle podcast channel, along with the other episodes of The Orange and Black Insider. New shows like the “Orange is the New Black” podcast from Ace Boogie and Zim WhoDey and “Sorry If I Spit When I Speak” from Dadio Makdook and Dr. Hodgie Smodgie have also been added to the channel’s audio slate.
