Brennan Marion -  Using the Duo Backfield Set to Stress the Defense


“The Go-Go Offense”

What is the Go-Go Offense? 

The Go-Go Offense is an uptempo, no huddle, downhill run game offense that takes advantage of the full field and match-ups. 

Two running backs next to the quarterback on the right, three receivers out wide. Brennan Marion says, “you can run every run play that’s ever been created in football.” Incorporate in some unbalanced formations and a dash of tempo, and you’ll have the defense on their toes. Statistics have shown great improvement when running this formation. 

This may not look like a normal spread set; it's a very odd set with a bizarre look but it's successful. With three receivers stretching the defense horizontally. In the play, one of the RBs in the backfield goes out for a pass as soon as the ball is snapped, while the other RB is involved in a play action pass with the quarterback.

Teams across the country have picked up the go go offense as an option and maybe you should too.

Introducing Brennan Marions Masterclass


Pitt wide receivers coach Brennan Marion has made the “ Duo formation” famous. Putting two backs next to each other puts a different stressor on the defense and helps the offense find the advantage. Coach Marion discusses the duo and how to apply it to your offense as well as different inside zone variations. He gives a detailed breakthrough on the entirety of the wide zone. Everything in this 13 video training will make your offense Go-Go.

Was pretty much entirely game film. For a couple of the later clips on the passing game, the feed seems to have frozen and the recording doesn't proceed further
