Curious how others run rocket.  The Powerpoint videos show 38 rocket as HB movement after the snap and the WB is in still in motion.  The manual seems to have both.  On pages describing the cues per position, it reads like Rocket means Freeze for the WB and motion for the HB.  However the play description is Freeze 38 Rocket Power so I am a bit confused if Freeze is just redundant here.

Last night I started to put in Rocket motion (with WB freeze) but I think the timing is not good for a reverse pivot toss/pitch with HB rocket motion pre snap.

It's done with "Freeze".  But HB has very short motion (just past FB before snap.

Does the HB do one continual motion on the snap or does he go in motion to a certain point pre snap?

So if im getting this correctly, hes doing his base action to the right ala 24 but hes being tossed the ball?
