The last number indicates what concept we are running in our routes. It also indicates where the strength is located (odd = left, even = right) Basic Play Call 962
  7. 7. Passing Game Play Call With Motion and Tags Y MO 984 Boston Hot Motion is first in the play call. Tags or adjustments within the concept are directly after the play call. If we want to take the R-Back out of the protection and hot release him, that indication is last.

  28. 28. Protections <ul><li>The first building block of our passing game is protection. Great protection is the most basic key to the success of our pass offense. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Protections <ul><li>Our linemen must be know and be able to execute our schemes, but even more, they must maintain a fierce pride in protecting the passer that says, “Nobody touches the quarterback.” </li></ul>
  30. 30. Protections <ul><li>Our back must understand his role within different protection schemes. He must get himself to the right places, and be physical enough to constantly handle linebackers and defensive ends. </li></ul>
  31. 31. Protections <ul><li>Our receivers play a major role by identifying coverage and potential blitz situations, understanding when they must break off their route to sight adjustments (being the ‘Q’ receiver), and most importantly GET OPEN in the time required by each pass so that the linemen and back do not have to pass block for unnecessary periods of time. </li></ul>
  32. 32. Protections <ul><li>Our quarterback is the center of it all, and he insures that we are a great protection team through the right recognition and communication. He must also get the ball of on the correct timing, and throw the ball away rather than taking foolish sacks. </li></ul>

  48. 48. Passing Concepts <ul><li>3-4 - Smash </li></ul><ul><li>One of the best ways we have of putting pressure on two deep coverage by creating situations where the cornerback cannot cover two people; he will see a six yard hitch in front of him and have a deeper-developing flag route behind him </li></ul><ul><li>Attacks down the field on the deep outside edge, or underneath as a ball-control pass </li></ul>
