~LITZ There are few solutions in handling a blit~ by the free or strong safety. Natura11y. we can handle 1.t vith our sight adjustments. In addition. we may use a .pecia~ H.oe call to co-mpensate for a 4 lU.BU to one side rush. And naturally.

we can get to the use of extra bloc~ers (62--63 protection) or use a 50 check. These are .erely A fev of our thoughts.

S I GET M>JU S'D{EN1'

X and Z

You must find the safety to your side on all our 60 (. 90 series patterns. If the safety to your side is on a blitz. ve will sight adjust to a quick slant when the corner is off and to a fade vs. bump and r'un , we will not sight .adjust any route where an inside receiver is on a flat route tc the side of the pattern. Naturally. specific called routes viII declare your particular adjustment vs. blitz read.

UNCOVERED RECEIVER

~e handle three ways:

1.) 50 Audible

2.) Hot call by open man with QB visually reading and making the thro~

3.) Facemask signal by receiver to QB recognizing open area and making thro>:.

S BACK SCRAMBLE RULES

- I

1. All routes with exception of Rim are ahortdeptb.

If scramble occurs merely move 1n direction of scramble (lateral movement) by filtering under control V6. Eone cover or fast seperation

vs. man.

a. In addition. flat Toute would force you to adjust up tbe boundary.

b. Ria route will put you in ~Dtermediate (8-20 yard depth area). --Same rules apply as ahort routes bere.

D. Overall Diagram Examples: 1. Load-GOZ Choice-S Flat

.- .

1. Althougb certainly not planned some of the bigg~st plays may occur here.

QB will not panic and get tunnel vision "merely looking to run." Keep moving avoiding rush while keeping a peripheral view downfield. This can be extremely confUSing to Eone cover people as our adjustoent routes will move through the zones to an open area for you vs. Man? They are mDving fast in seperation.

BASIC RlJ1..ES OF RECEIVER PL.AY SPECIFIC TO OUROF'FtNSE

R.ELEASE - Avc'ld cont .. ct with defend·ers. ContAct generally .eans the route v1l1 be disrupted. Agility. quickness, and anticipation are k.eys to free JDOVe:ment to tbe ball. Specific techniques fan assist the receiver as well.

"HOT" CALL AJ-."I) SIGNAL - The HOT call is utilized in blitz situations,

where the receiver fills the area vacated by the blit~ing de! ender.

In addition. a HOT call v1.11 be made when any receiver finds himself "wide~' open. The signal 1.s made by waving a hand and 6c~eaming "HOT!"

BOOK-UP SIGNAl. - When a receiver sees he cannot beat a defender deep (or tbat the defender 1s giving up short routes to defend the deep area) on a vertical route, he can throw ann up and hook-up the route.

CROSS-FACE or PERFECT POSITION - When a receiver is involved io onside pattern. a general rule applies:

If a defender crosses the receiver's face, the receiver

-

should break back across the defender's face.

If 'on alignment, for vide receivers, tbe defender is in a bump-and-run position and has turned his sboulder and hips to the outside. The receiver has the choice to run the fade,

pressure out, go, or break across defender's face to inside.
If while running a vertical route the defender is in perfect
position to defend the deep throw on that course, the receiver
should break back across his face to an open area. l

ADDITIONAL nOUGHTS FOR RECEIVERS

PASS R3UT£ INTRODUCTION

A route is n.amed to de s cr Ibe tbe receiver' 5 final direction. or depth and dit'ec~1on at the breakpoint •.

A receiver .ust cballenge a defender with plan.ned movement as he runs a

route to ,aln an advantage at this break. You -.ay -.aneuver from your

start to your break in .ore than one prescribed -.anner. Such. aaneuver visualized fro~ start to break is called an Approach. When used properly. these approaches are the key to our main objective as a receiver - which is to break and C031eopeD when the quarterback is ready at the passing spot. A route approach is basically founded .OD B three-step weave prinCiple. It is 1ZL8de

up of three segments: a release. a weave. and a break.

BREAXPOINT

RELEASE

STARtING POI~l AT LOS

1. Stance: ~ide Receiver - 2 or 3 point, outside foot back. Analyze and decide. As you line up on either side, make it alvays the same.

2. Split: Some plays require specific splits in attempt to dictate TUn support or coverage. When not specified, vary your split. Consider three variables: the route. secondary alignment. and sideline.

a. The split will vary according to the route and route approach.

I

Leave aaneuvering room in relation to sideline on outside routes.

and saneuvering room in relation to inside defenders r~) inside

routes.

l

(

b. On inside routes vs. zone coverages. viden your .plit or Tour approach to increase sl%e·of zones, and to reduce ins1de coverage belp. Read the de! ensive IU.n on the run.

c. Alvays read the aligraent of Corner. Safety. and LBer before tbe nlAp. Look for a coverage key.

d. Note bow the defensive back aligns and reacts when you are close to the sideline. See if be bas a false sense of sideline security. Find tbe opponents' sideline rule.

e. Al~ays kno~ your relative position to the tideline and end %ooe lines. R.espect them but do not let them bother you when catching tbe ball - tbe catch first.

3. Study the tendencies of each defensive back and secondary. If they gamble. quess with you. play loose or tight, inside or out. their speed. h~ they cover on all down and distance situations. Take pride in kno~ing how to beat them.

~. During the game talk to the QB and coaches when on the sideline.

Tell them what you can do. what's good and bad •. your best route on 2nd and long, and your best deep pattern.

5. Carry out your assignment at full speed on every play. Don't

loaf because you think the pass is going to someone else. Be alert for the ball. even though you are Dot the primary receiver. You never ltOC7\o1 when the QB ",illt.hrow to you. You rill catch more passes if you develop the ability to find a passing lane for the QB if he gets in trouble.

I6:W

1. The release off the line of .crt..age pr~~eates any .ucceas -aalnst

the defense. Explode off the 11ne! Use your atrength (quiclCDesc. speed. strength) in releasing.

2. Wide ~ecelvers - Come off the line in one of three angles: Outdde. atralgbt. inside .. Tie t.he release together with your weave and break. Vary your release. Consider route. type of coverage and individual technique of defender.

WEAVE

}. Study approach combinations. Dr~ them .. Walk them .• Jog them .• Run them ..

2. Run every route at full speed but rela:xed and under control. We cannot get correct timing any other vay.

3. Change of direction should be a veaving fluid DOtion. Run up the field. Dot side to side.

t

4. The importance of the weave is its angle. This veave causes a difference in the !ateral position between the receiver and the defender, and thereby causes the defender to react immediately to proper alignment. This alignment with the defensive back on the last step of the receiver's veave is the key to t~e angle the receiver takes on his break.

5. Vs. man t e chrd que+ fake the man. DOt the area. Make the fake as close to the defender as possible. Force the man! Force him to react. Don't let him watch you and then react. If the defender stays in his back pedal. break off his alignment. If he turns his body. break across his face.

6. Push the defender vith your eyes but see his hips and feet as you weave in your approach. Try to force him off balance at the break pOint by causing him to turn his back or cross his feet over.

7. Vs. %one ~echniQue- sometimes fakes will help you, but not always.

Think position, Dot fake. lanes .

Use weave to widen the sea~s and passing

1. NEVER SHORTEN DESIGNATED DEPTH OF JtOt.rrE •

..

2. Run under control as you approach breakpoint. Do ftot reduce s~ed.

Do not raise up or ~hrow arar; in air at break.

3. The breakpoint 1s the critical point 1n a route. The object 16

to increase t.he distance betveen self eDd the defender. Accelerate around plant foot. vhip your head and shoulder around to locate

the ball.

r

4. Techniques at breakpoint on basic routes:

a. LN - Speed step with' inside foot. Whip bead and shoulder. Start inside and look for hole. If LBer is inside, stay tight and .ave t ovar d throvn ball. If LBer is underneath. adjust to inside and tben toward thrown ball. Get low with knees bent. feet spread. weight on balls of feet. and keep moving.

b. POST - Head fake or weave and speed step under control. F1Lid patternvs. "man" technique - make fake as close to defender as possible. Don't hurry-fake. Accelerate on vertically flat angle upfield. Stay away from inside safety.

c. OUT - Speed step. l~ and on balance. Do not over-stride. \/hip head ~nd shoulder. Accelerate and run around speed step.

d. STRE.AR - Vary release. Explode off line. Attempt to clear defender to his outside; get him turned and run vertical line. If defender shuts off outside, burst inside to clear and immediately viden. If defender has great speed, you can change up by using change of pace.

5. Techniques when cro~ded by defensive back at breakpoint:

NUMBER I RULE ON READ PATTERN - Avoid contact.

Vs. Head Up - Use speed, quickness. and faking ability to get deep.

1

Vs. Bump & Run - Use your best ability in relation to defender

to determine your route. Consider relative speed, si%e. strength. quickness, faking ability, and change of direction.

c. Love:r abou14er s runn1~ hard into chest and bounce off.

Collis10n nIl create space..

d. Drop hand to ground; duck under defender's arm and break.

VS. INSIDE SRADE OR BUMP POSITION - when breaking' ins1~e. use

one of the following:

a. Over the top - dr ep near shoulder, drive hard.

b. Duck under; slash thru with near arm.

c. Spin under.

d. Swing in - 2 step outside move.

6. When you are breaking past a defensive man and have him beat - be alert for holding or tackling. They are taught to take the penalty rather t.han the Tn. YOU MUST CLEAR THEM.

RlJl\ TO BALL

1. Accelerate to full speed.

2. Practice body control. Keep head and whole body on one p l.ane ,

3. Turn your head only - not your whole upper body.

4. Relax.

- 5. Try to catch the ball vithout breaking stride. Run through the ball; only leave your feet as a last resort.

6. Don't extend your hands and arms too soon. It will slo~ you d~ and disturb your balance.

7. Always be alert for the ball even though you .ay think you are

not the primary receiver. Most of the time the defensive coverage dictates whether or not the ball will be t hr ovn to you. Loafing on a plaY1is inexcusable. No position on the offensive unit 1s afforded that luxury.

CATCHING

1. Technique

a. Eye concen~rat10n on ball.

b. ~ork to get ,our chest in front of the ball.

c. A.nns away from body whenever possible; ca t ch the ball in

the noose. DOt against ,our chest.

d. R.eln.

e. Fingers spread like a web. r. Bigh ball - thumbs together.

g. ~aist-high ball - elbows in close, thumbs out.

h. Low ball - elbows inside 'knees - hand and arrss in scoop position.

1. Look tbe ball into the running position (armpit).

2. Catching the ball is your first responsibility. After you catch it, think about additional yardage and scoring.

3. 00 a deep pass. remember to look the ball into your hands.

4. Alvays expect to get hit as you catch the ball; then the jolt von9t surprise you. You have to want rhe ball. Be willing to pay the price for the catch. You must disregard the contact - if you catch the ball. it only hurts half as much~!

5. Develop the attitude that t.he ball 1s yours after it is throvn.

Dominate t.he ball.

6. Go all out. every time regardless of hov poorly the ball is thrown. Soon the tough catches viII become routine.

7. If you miss a pass, don't brood over it. Get your mind back on the next catch which viII help vin t.he ball game.

2. If the cornerback turl'l5 his hips to the outside, then you just take him up the field.

QUARTERBACK - You will be rolling to the left, reading the drop of the cornerback. If the you are setting up to throw, then step and shuffle step and set on your 5th step.
