your favorite route tags to take advantage of defenders?
« on: August 05, 2017, 07:02:23 PM »
Guys,

How do you guys take advantage of defensive backs when they start jumping routes?

I am sure these are in most coaches adjustments but wanted to hear if you had any others. These are two of my favorites.

1. Hitch (Hitch-n-Go!)
2.Slant/arrow   (Slant/Wheel)

My favorite route is "Beast Blast".

Seriously, though, we have huggos, sluggos, buggos and a lot of other "go's".

We use a code word for the & Go's. It alerts the O Line that true protection is needed & the WR's that it is an & Go.

As an example 62 maybe all slants, 62(code word) is all Sluggo's
