X’s & O’s: Multiple Threats With Snag Concept

The Snag Concept stretches the field both horizontally and vertically for defender(s) assigned to cover the flat/sideline. Typically, one defender is assigned to cover the flat and another is assigned the sideline, creating a situation in which two defenders must cover three receivers.

An inside receiver (Z) runs a corner route. The H-back runs a shoot or similar route toward the sideline. The X runs 5 yards to his spot and turns. Combined, these three routes stretch the defense horizontally and vertically.
