Coaching Youth Football Poorly, How to Spot a Poorly Coached Team

Telltale Signs of Poorly Coached Youth Football Teams:

How can you tell if a youth football team is poorly coached versus a team that just has no players?
That is a very good question, other than the obvious organizational signs (poor practice priorities), there is one simple sign that always tells me if a team has talent or not. How is the team doing on defense? Are they losing every game 50-0 or are the losses 20-6, 12-0, 18-6? Is the team getting shut out a lot?

If a youth football team is losing every game by 50 points they may be in one of those 100-1 "perfect storm" situations, a rarity akin to a Bigfoot sighting in Kansas. But if they are doing "ok" on defense in spurts, it means the team has a few athletes, but has no offense. How then can a youth football team with a few athletes on defense and can hold their own there in spurts, score so few points on offense? POOR FOOTBALL COACHING Usually lots of "grab bagging" a little of this, little of that UFA Web and very little scoring too. Most of these teams run too many football plays and the coach seems to always be looking for that one holy grail of football plays to pull his offense out of the slump. These offenses often change from week to week.
