    Nice reads!


    I see that Kubiak haven't changed the terminology since the Broncos days.


    This is what I saw in their 2004 playbook:

    TIGER formations:
    A second TE (the TIGER man) has entered the game instead of the FB
    (the standard formation is a one TE, 2-receiver, a FB and a RB).

    ZEBRA formations:
    A third wide receiver (the ZEBRA man) has entered the game in place of the FB.

    EAGLE formations:
    4 wide receivers / 1 back

    There are other formations like the U formations (a second TE in place of the X receiver), the Ugoaline (a second and third TE replacing the two receivers), the E formations (3 receivers, 2 backs), the TREY formations (3 TEs, 1 back, plus the Z receiver).
