Here is my adaptation of Hal Mumme’s “Routes-on-air” drill. The 5 (or 4, or 3,or two and a coach, etc.) QBs line up side-by-side and drop simultaneously,while your receivers run the routes from a given route package. Additionalreceivers are standing behind the drill by position, ready to jump in for the nextrep. I like to stand behind, but have another coach on the side of the drill and,if possible, a third downfield. You'll notice the inverted V's in the diagram --these are traffic cones, placed where defenders will end up in their zone drops --I've diagrammed a Cover 2 zone with five underneath defenders in the shortzones. If there is a third coach downfield, I like him to stand behind one of themiddle cones. If you face a lot of man coverage, position the cones at the spotwhere receivers would make their cuts against man defenders; this will helpthem see where those cuts should occur, and will help the QB time his throw. The QB on the right calls cadence and drops with the ball, as do the otherssimultaneously. The #1 QB, on the right, looks to his first read in that routepackage and throws the ball; #2, next to him, checks the #1 receiver, thenthrows to #2; and so on down the line, until #5 QB on the left looks at all fourother receivers before throwing to #5. It should be "zing-zing-zing-zing-zing" inshort order when everyone throws to the right man in the proper sequence. This gives a clear indication of who "gets it" and who doesn’t -- any ball thrownout of sequence or to the wrong receiver can be immediately corrected --reinforcing the ones who have done it right and fixing the problem for the onewho hasn't. Yes, it gets crowded there in the backfield -- but that's goodtraining for the QB. He steps up and throws even with bodies swirling aroundhim.Before the next rep, all five QB's switch places -- #1 rotates to the left, and allothers slide right one place. Thus each pass route package will get five correct
