Good example of his snap count.

players are coaches change the calls all the time so when you are watching the game you really have no idea what it means

so many mixed answers in this thread lol. Jonnydel might know

Red 80 specifically is just his count....its for pacing and for the opportunity to hard count. It also can give our side a jump if they know how many RED 80's there will be before a RED HUT which along with a tap on the rump is often when the center is told to hike the ball.

Omaha means the QB is calling an audible on the WR's routes or route.

Actually Omaha means ONE, meaning the snap will come on one. Dungy clarified this on his pregame on SNF on NBC one night

I guess it matters when they call Omaha. From what I've read, Omaha is a audible for a receivers route. See Kaepernick in this past game against the Bucs.
Red 80 I like it

Its almost like my ebay name since 2003 and my handle on this thread ! LOL

RED RAZER RED RAZER 45

In the old school WCO, Denver/Omaha and thunder were base plays. In base set, Denver had both the flanker and split end run slants and the TE settle over the middle. Omaha had the WR run out routes with the TE settling over the middle. Thunder had the WRs run hooks and TE sit in the middle. Dragon was another big niner play it was slants by both WR, however the TE ran a flat route creating slant-flat concept.

I would be willing to bet tho when we heard steve yelling them they were dummies, cause by the time steve was qb the WCO and all it's verbiage was pretty well circulated around the league.

I always thought it was ironic that Jeff Garcia had the deepest and grittiest sounding cadence.
Hilarious me and my brother used the same thing playing backyard football 100 years ago. When he would say red 80 I knew to run a streak blue 20 (Barry sanders) would be a handoff ect.... We always did little codes that gave us a advantage.

But like others have said it's a cadence and pays homage to the GOAT. It's for timing.

Like in movies it's "blue 32"

Yeah i made the mistake of saying old school WCO, inferring Walsh Montana 80's version. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that is been 2 decades since shanahan . I don't think it will let me link it cause I'm on my phone but those that would like to see it google "1994 49ers pass install" its really good stuff if ur into X's and O's.
When my son heard Kap yelling this at the line, he thought he was saying "Heeeeey Laaadies!. So now that is all I hear.
When they play Seattle they should put in a taunt for Sherman -- "Red Rover Red Rover send Dick Sherman right over"
kill kill kill.........time out
