Not every move will work for every player, but everything else leading up to the initial move and after the move is what makes a great pass rush.
Replace blitzes – or “creepers” – are four-man rushes that attack an aspect of the protection or blocking scheme by overloading a player or side.
For quarterbacks, we do not have 100 drills we try and complete throughout the week. Instead, we have 4-5 daily drills we complete and perfect.
The quarterback reads the backside linebacker. If the backside linebacker adds into the call side, the quarterback throws the slant behind him.
If the backside linebacker adds into the call side, throw the Dig in behind him. If he stays, expand to the #3 wide receiver or hand the ball to the running back.
When the running back leaves the box on this Inside Zone RPO, if the Mike linebacker doesn’t follow him, throw it to him. If he does, hand it off.
This Inside Zone play is the most basic play in your run-game package: no reads, no movements, and no complicated rules. Block the zone, hand it off.
This play-action Double Post is a take-your-shot, play-action bomb for the quarterback. The best part is, it’s a very easy read.
When you’re ready to “take a shot,” you could do worse than this Double Post X Cross with its easy high-to-low, check-down progression.
Levels is an easy progression for the quarterback as the wide receivers should enter his vision naturally in order of the progression.
Split Zone is a great play meant to look like zone read to freeze the defensive end for a kick out block from the tight end or fullback.
Our motto is, “Small menu, large understanding.” We limit run and pass plays so players can execute against all defensive looks. This is key to great RPOs.
