X’s & O’s: Smoke/Pop Gap RPO

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.
