Free Access Concept“Free Access” means that thereceiver will run the best quick Faderoute for the situation(Hitch/Slant/Bend/Fade) and Slantthe QB will be free to go to thatroute any time he is singlecovered. The route is a slant,unless communicated by theQB, or tagged in the play call. Hitch BendAnytime a WR is alone on thebackside of a three receiverroute (Call side in 64/65 C WRProtection), we will run a “FreeAccess” route.
Safety Control ConceptAny time we call a double route to a formation with more than therequired receivers, the extra receiver will run “Safety Control.” Thismeans that he should run directly at the chest of the nearestdeep safety.Uno/Dos/Tres will be used if we need to tell a particular receiver tosafety control. Uno talks to the widest receiver, Dos to the secondreceiver, and Tres to the third receiver.. C C C C C C C C C Uno – Widest Dos – #2 Tres - #3 Safety Control Safety Control Safety Control
Scramble Rules The Art of Running RoutesDeep – Stay Deep A.K.A. Sit in Zone, Run from Man A receiver who sits a route down and finds himself closely covered should KEEP MOVING. Short – Come A curl could end up becoming a dig. An option route could become a drag. Back to the QB A receiver who makes a cut and finds himself already in a hole in the zone should STOP MOVING. A dig could become a curl. Backs Swing If you’re open, stay open – If you’re not, get open!!

Option Route Inside Receiver Outside Receiver Should be run between the Hook defender and the Curl defender in all 3 Shell coverages. Run against the Curl defender in all 2 Shell coverages Receiver must identify curl dropper on the fly. Great option routes are run with feel, not with speed
Slide Protection – 80 Series80/81 protection is our 6 man slide protection. 80 tells the TB to block the outside gap on theright, and 81 tells the back to block the outside gap on the left. The offensive line slides awayfrom the back, and each blocks their next gap away from the running back.Offensive linemen do not “slide to air,” which means that any lineman with no threat to hisgap will stay and help with and defender over him. In such a situation, the helping linemanmust keep his eyes to the empty gap for any LB blitz or late DL rush. 80/81 Protection TB First Man outside OT’s Hip PST P/S B Gap – If no threat, help in P/S C Gap with Eyes Inside PSG P/S A Gap – If no threat, help in P/S B Gap with Eyes Inside C B/S A Gap – If no threat, help in P/S A Gap with Eyes Backside BSG B/S B Gap – If no threat, help in B/S A Gap with Eyes Backside BST B/S C Gap – If no threat, help is B/S B Gap with Eyes Backside

Passing Game CoordinationVertical Concepts All of our vertical concepts are full field concepts, that is they tell every receiver on the field which route to run Vertical concepts can only be thrown from the pocket, using 6 man protection (60/61), because the back is need in the concept Each concept has a different read progression, which makes these routes the most difficult for young QBs Each route must have a “Tagged” receiver that allows for variation in the route
Vertical GameThe Vertical Game is a HORIZONTAL stretch of the deep portion of the secondary using three or fourvertical routes. Each route requires an “on the fly” read to be successful against multiple coverage types.Like with the Bunch Package, understanding which route to run depends on the receiver’s horizontalalignment in the formation. These route concepts are “Full Field” concepts, which means that they canattack anywhere across the field. Each of these routes must be thrown from the pocket. They should bethrown with five step timing. We divide the vertical game in to “Four Vertical”, and “Three Vertical”packages for teaching purposes.

Passing Game CoordinationCombination Concepts Combination routes are defined as “two route, used in combination, to attack one defender” Each combination route is designed to be best against a particular style of coverage, or defensive “shell” Combination routes are designed to be thrown to a 2 receiver side, but we will also throw them to a 3 receiver side using the “safety control” concept We will also pair combination routes in 2 x 2 formations (Choice – Smash, Bench – Under) We will throw combination routes with 5 step timing from the pocket, and also from our sprint out passing
Combination RoutesQuarterbacks should use their progression concept to read a combination route –but they should also understand that each route concept is designed to attack onesingle defender. This understanding will allow them some freedom within thesystem. For example, we define the choice route progression as one – flat, two –curl, three – checkdown/option. Once the QB understands the route concept, hewill be able to read curl to flat essentially simultaneously. 2 3 1 X J Choice Choice Y Option T 3 2 1 Y J Z

Reading Sprint RoutesWhen we move the pocket, the QB’s thoughtprocess changes slightly. He must understandthat the movement of the pocket has severalaffects on his thought process.1. He is well protected on the front side.2. He is poorly protected on the backside – Don’t stop moving!3. There are only two reads – QB run is the #3 option.4. The defense will move with him, and the field is smaller – No cross body throws!We will run Bench, Corner, Choice Wheel, andScissor almost exclusively from Sprintprotection. Only one route concept will be Moving the launch pointcalled on a sprint out combination to be run on helps protect the QBthe side that the QB is sprinting towards.

Passing Game CoordinationBunch PackageBunch routes require that the formation has three eligible receivers to one side of the formationBunch formations can be created using combinations of receivers, tight ends, and backsEach route must have a “Tagged” receiver that allows for variation in the routeBunch concepts require 6 man pocket protection (60/61)
Bunch PackageBunch routes are three receiver combinations that have built in two, three, and man beater routes.Each route is best thrown against one type of coverage, but can be thrown against any.These routes are best thrown from the pocket, but can be thrown with sprint out action.

Sprint Protection – 90 SeriesOur sprint out passing game uses 90/91 protection. In this protection, we physicallyattack the edge of the defense so that we can get the QB out of the pocket and movethe launch point. The offensive line rules are based on the fire rule that we use onStretch/Flex, and both pass and run should look the same to the defense.The QB can turn sprint pass into QB Stretch/Flex simply by making a “Go” callwhen he gets to the edge. We can also tag a backside route onto the sprint concept,by calling the protection 94/95. 90/91 Protection TB Block EOL – Be physical & help the OT get the edge sealed PST Protect On/Gap/Down – Make call like it’s Fire Rule Protect Gap/On/Most Dangerous LB PSG If MDLB – Pull for any edge threat (Listen for “Go” Call) C Reach PS A Gap – If no threat, step and hinge for backside chasers BSG Reach BS A Gap – If no threat, step and hinge for backside chasers BST Reach BS B Gap – If no threat, step and hinge for backside chasers

Rocket ScreenThe Quick Rocket screen is designed as a play-action screen that gets the ball to the perimeterquickly. Rocket screen is thrown to the outside receiver. It requires that every member of theoffense uses a counting system, counting defenders from the screen side.We can also throw Rocket to a slot receiver in a trips set, by calling Rocket Add.
