Football Field Strong SideThe term "strong side" generally refers to the offensive team formation and not the field itself. In an unbalanced formation with more offensive players on one side of the center than the other, the side with more players is considered the "strong side." The extra man is usually the tight end and with a right-handed quarterback, he will normally line up on the right side of the line. Hence, the right side of the offensive team's line is usually the "strong side."

Some offensive systems designate the strong side as the side which is farthest from the sideline; for example, if the ball is on the right hashmark, strong side is on the left side of the ball, and vice versa. This is more often used in Canadian football, as with 12 players on the field a balanced formation is possible.

It depends on whether there are ie. "backs, tight ends, and receivers" but usually the linebacker calls the strength to the tightend side. If there are no tight ends then call the strength to the back. No back or tight end? Then call the strength to the trips.
