'Split End' and 'Flanker' are terms for wide receivers

You know, this finally made me go and look up the difference between the two, which had been bugging me for years.

Apparently, Split End is used to describe a receiver that lines up on the weak side of the offense, usually up at the line of scrimmage and on the opposite side from the tight end. The Flanker is on the strong side, usually back from the line a couple steps and more like a slot receiver.

I'd heard the difference explained once, but that was when I was like 12. So I've really learned something today. Knowledge is power -- yeah!

Yeah, the SE lines up on the line of scrimmage just like the TE, but out wide. The FL or Flanker normally lines up a yard back or "off" the line of scrimmage on the side opposite the TE in a traditional set.

If you ever see a college and some pro games where the WR lines up and seems to wave at the ref on the sidelines, he is just checking to make sure he is "on" the line of scrimmage and the ref will then tell him if he is OK.

If the SE isnt on the line of scrimmage, then its an illegal formation. Sometimes you will hear the expression the TE was "uncovered" before the snap. Its because the SE was off the line of scrimmage.
