Earlier this summer, I used the RFN Glass to explain the “level principle” that many offenses use in the NFL passing game. Last week, I talked about the run game, and the keys that a QB uses in the “check with me” game to get his team in the correct run play. That was a run-to-run call. Today, I want to show you how the QB reads the defense and uses the audible system to make a run-to-pass call.
Take a look at this video. The QB is watching the change in coverage on the back end, but what he’s really doing is looking at the numbers game in the box, looking for ways to create mismatches in coverage. In this example, the offense gets their speedy z slot receiver in coverage against the WIL linebacker, which has the potential to make for a big play.Add to My RFN
