I have been hearing a ton about the R4 system lately and went to Glazier Clinic and caught a session. It sounded good and I didn't find any flaws in it at all.
However, I went to a later session and heard a coach saying that the R4 was a game changer for their program. They had thrown 37 interceptions before the R4 and then only threw 6 the next season. My only thought for the rest of the session was, "What were you doing before?"
So as a coach do you look at a system when you realize you have a void in coaching, a void in scheme, a tweak in something you already do, you want to make a wholesale change and don't want to start from scratch?
We went TFS. Wanted something concrete that we could learn, drill, and ask questions about/trouble shoot. It was very good for us. We could have kept/learned a run and pass game, but drills were invaluable. Cut ups were invaluable. And the screen game....we could never have figured that out to the extent it was taught to us.
It allowed us to make it our own. We probably have the most complex screen game in our area. Mixed with SPO (not a TFS thing) it’s become the #1 thing people ask about for us, even though we don’t do it a lot.
My recommendation would be to take a system, learn it and run it. If you add, do it small. We added an empty QB run game the 1st year because our QB was a dude and was a great short yardage runner (pretty talented at everything to be honest). Last year we tweaked and made it more of our own. This year it’s morphing into more of what we really want.
We probably won’t look real TFS to most, but it allowed for us to take our ideas formation and personnel wise and teach it to our kids, drill it, and have answers.

R$ is worth every dime I have spent. My qb and I have the same language, have a logical progression by great pre reads, with hudl sideline mu qb and I can read . I was and am a wing t guy. I have moved to also with a gun wing t which opened up my pass game and a movement to concept passing) r4 changed how I saw the passing game.
