3 Step Drop

 The 3-step drop game in the Jet package is the easiest way to throw
the football.
 High percentage play because even when the route is covered we
will roll away from the wide receiver to a three-tier route on the
backside.
 The problem with the 3 step passing game is CV2
 Alternative is to site adjust and throw the fade. 12% of all fade
routes are completed.
 With our three step drop game the quarterback will read the
perimeter defense that is defending the wide receiver and decide
weather to throw the called route or boot away.
 This gives our quarterback a chance to complete every pass,
whether the defense shuts down the called route or if we boot away.
Backside Route

 The backside of the 3-step route is run almost
the same as waggle.
 Slot will release and drags exactly like the
waggle pattern.
 The play turns into a waggle when the called
route is defended.
 The action of the halfback dragging freezes the
strong safety and does not allow him to run
under the called route.

Tight End
 The tight end or first eligible receiver past the
center will run what we call a delayed arrow.
 The tight end will contact the end man on the
line of scrimmage.
 He will engage #1 for a two thousand count, and
then pivot on the outside foot turning his butt into
the #1 defender.
 Once the tight ends has the #1 defender on his
back he will run flat down the line of scrimmage
away from the defense.
Wing
 The wingback route is called a smash
route.
 The smash route is executed by releasing
vertically for a depth of 8-10 yards then
bending the pattern 22 yard deep 4 yards
from the sideline.

Quarterback
 The quarterback will check the called
route to the wide receiver.
 If the quarterback doesn’t like the
defensive alignment he will pump fake the
wide receiver and roll to the backside
reading arrow, smash, and drag

Loose Formation
 Slot will block down on the defensive end
by jamming his hands into the hip of the
DE.
 He will drive the defensive end for a
thousand two count.
 After the slot holds his block for the one
thousand one count he will run the same
pattern as the tight end (delayed arrow).

60 Delta
 Mini Curl Concept
 Curl/Flat on one side
 Quick out away
 Quarterback read is check with me.
 3 step drop by the quarterback
Advantages of the Mini Curl
 Quick easy throw for the quarterback
 Stops a crowding defense
 One on one with best receiver
 Can throw from any formation
 Great empty pass
 Another no motion play
 Similar concept as Scat
Mini Curl / Delta

 Flair by the HB
 Out to #1 receiver away
 Scat pivot or Spacing route Ends

Mirror
 Both sides of the route run mini curl/flat
 #3 would run a spacing route with scat
technique
 Quarterback can read the softest flat
coverage
 Easy throw

Mini Curl Technique
 3 steps at a 45 degree angle
 2 steps to the post
 Turn # to Quarterback
Scat/ Spacing Technique
 The Scat route is a spacing route in which the receiver
finds the hole between the linebackers approximately 6
to 7 yards deep.
 When running the scat the receiver (vs. zone) will find
the hole between the linebackers, show the Quarterback
his numbers, and if the receiver is open show his eyes.
 If the quarterback does not see the receiver’s eyes he
will go to the next receiver in the progression.
 If the receiver is being played man he will punch and
pivot.
 We punch the defender with the inside hand and pivot
outside running away from the defender.
