I haven't used the +/- thing, but I give each lineman a sheet #1 thru however many plays we had and next to each number that particular player was in the game I give him a comment. Whether good, bad or indifferent, each player on each play gets something to read. This has been really good for me the 8 years I have done it. Instead of seeing a +/- they see actual coaching points written down before the play happens and they can watch what they either did good or bad.

0=didn't know what the hell he doing 1=knew what he was doing, but did it wrong 2=did his job 3=extra effort-downfield block
write all the play names on the far left of a legal pad, makes lines down it for the each position, then just write them down
then average it out with the number of plays for a percentage
we give out mascot stickers so the rules for that are above 90% for a game=1 every 4 dominations=1 (a domination is what it sounds like, just whipping the other guy, not necessarily a true pancake where the other guy ends up on his back but just finishing beyond the norm)
then lazy plays-i take stickers off their helmet for each one, and they get out of the game real quick
We grade on the +,-, & 0 scale. Make comments with initials to the side. They can recieve doubles either way. After sitting and grading. We have a comment sheet in which we fill out for every position player we have and put it in their lockers. It amazes me to see how many of these kids keep these comments.
