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:
- The inside receiver runs a corner route.
- The outside receiver runs a quick hitch.
For the quarterback, the read is a progression read, as outlined below.
|Z||6 yd Hitch|
|Y||Corner break at 8-10 yds|
|H||Seam vs 2 High look; Dig at 14 vs 1 High Look|
|T||Angle 3-4 yds, release outside of TE hip|
|QB||Vs 1 High look High low Playside LB with Dig/Angle; Vs 2 High look Corner/Seam Near Safety|
