Just Play: Smash 3x1

X’s & O’s: Smash 3×1

The smash concept is one of the top passing concepts in all of football because it is simple and effective against a variety of coverages. Two main elements exist within the smash concept:

  1. The inside receiver runs a corner route.
  2. The outside receiver runs a quick hitch.

For the quarterback, the read is a progression read, as outlined below.
