Best Answer

A direct snap offense refers to an offense where the ball is snapped directly to a tailback or fullback. a good example of this would be the modern Wildcat offense, in which a tailback lines up behind the center, four or five yards back like a quarterback would in a shotgun set.

An offside offense is punished with an indirect free kick for the opposing team. Note that the free kick is awarded for the actual offense of offside, not just for being in an offside position--being in an offside position while not participating in play or gaining an advantage is not an offense and doesn't result in any free kick.
