Quick Passing Basics

Quick Passing Basics
Complete Quick package consists of 3 patterns – 1) Hitch 2) Slant 3) Fade Patterns are always mirrored on both sides of the ball.  Taught as a complete pattern – not just individual routes. All players must be able to run all routes within the pattern and know their route’s purpose. No primary receiver – all receivers are to run complete routes and expect the ball every play.

Quick Passing Basics
QB’s pre-snap read will dictate the side he’ll be throwing to. QB’s ‘key’ is always one defensive player with only 2 options -- “he does this - I do that”. Several formations, motioning and adjustment ‘tags’ give the illusion of complexity to the defense. For a side that has only one receiver in tight, we’ll apply a Common Sense Rule: If #1 is in tight, an outside route doesn’t ‘make sense’. Run a route to occupy the middle of the field.

Hitch

Hitch
 #1 - Hitch route – wide split - 5 steps, snap back and expect the ball now (note: #1’s route will always be the pattern’s ‘name’
(e.g. hitch, slant, or fade))

 #2 – Seam route – angle to outside shoulder of the OLB, slip inside him, throttle down, turn shoulders to QB and expect the ball now (note: #2 will run the route designed to get #1
open)

 #3 – Open route – get ‘open’ anywhere beyond 7 yards and to the inside (note: on all patterns #3 will run an Open unless tagged)
