One goal with our Smoke/Pop Gap RPO is to put certain defenders in conflict so they have to make a quick decision to defend the run or the pass. Our subsequent goal is to keep things simple to play fast. This is an example of a play that does just that. Check out these X’s & O’s.
|QB||Open away from call and mesh with A. If Mike fills, pull and throw vern or smoke based off R movement. If Mike scrapes, give to B back.|
|B||J step away from call. Soft mesh allowing the QB to be able to pull the ball. If the ball is pulled carry out fake.|
|Y||Pop route. Release for width, anticipate ball quick as you reach 2nd level.|
|H||Block MDM for smoke.|
|Z||Run smoke. Expect the ball.|
|PST||Inside drive block End|
|PSG||Block back on 1st defender backside.|
|C||Block back on 1st defender backside.|
|BSG||Block back on 1st defender backside.|
|BST||Pull for 1st ISLB call side.|
