American Football - A Game of Strategy

Getting the game strategy right is a tricky balance, it's not just a case of considering the 11 football players on the field, in the National Football League (NFL), a football coach has 47 players from which to plan, train and execute strategic gameplay through the game. Positioning football players to achieve the maximum team strategic layout can be complex, it's not simply a case of going with the players choice, a good football couch looks for a players natural strengths and weaknesses with a view to building on these along with their football knowledge and positional understanding to create players who know their position and role down to the fine detail. The American Football 'Position to Win' calculator is designed to assist football coaches and football players in identifying their key strengths to understand where they are best positioned in the field and/or to identify alternate positions that could be played by developing/building on key strengths and/or weaknesses.

How are players positioned in American Football?

The American Football play to win calculator can be used in two ways.

  1. You can select the football position that you would like to play in, this option illustrates the key attributes and qualities that underpin the position/role on the field. This is better suited to players who are looking to refine their strengths and weaknesses in order to play in a certain position.
  2. The second approach to using the American Football calculator is to select the individual attributes that you can see from your appraisal of a specific player. By selecting the skill set of the player, the calculator will define their optimal position. Clearly very experienced coaches will know this without a calculator but we hope it proves a useful tool for junior coaches and those looking to confirm their thinking / approach when positioning football players.
