A few do's and dont's in the passing game First, please note that I am not calling out stoker on this. I have spoken to him in private to point out what he was doing. This is just some good examples that I wanted everyone to see. In the game last night between BC and Wake Forest, there were a few passing plays which just are not allowed at TF in the mold of what we are about, playing sim ball. I was watching the game as JMS broadcasted it, and I had him mention this to stoker who said he didn't see it at the time, mainly because he was in the middle of a tightly contested game. However, I was able to pull some clips to show examples of what is NOT allowed and what IS ok when it comes to passing plays and scrambling with your QB. The following is from a PM I sent to Stoker and JMS today. ------------------------------------------------------------- Clip #1: http://www.justin.tv/b/jms493/b/267769039 Line of scrimmage is the 20 yard line, right by the right hashmark. Shotgun formation, take snap, fade 5 yards further back, sprint to right outside of numbers, then throw bomb downfield...all right after snap, all without any pressure Clip #2: http://www.justin.tv/b/jms493/b/267769321 Line of scrimmage is the 15 yard line, on the right hashmark. Shotgun form, take snap and and sprint back 5 yards and on a b-line to the left sidelines almost to the numbers all the way across the field on the left, then stop on a dime to throw a pass. Again, done immediately after snap, no pressure Clip #3: http://www.justin.tv/b/jms493/b/267769380 Line of scrimmage is the 25 yard line, in the middle closer to left hashmark. Shotgun form, take snap, again, immedately sprint back 5 yards and this time to the right outside the hashmarks to stop on the dime and throw back across the field to the left. Again no pressure, again done immediately at snap Clip #4: http://www.justin.tv/b/jms493/b/267768932 Line of scrimmage is the 35 on the left hashmark. Ace/under center formation. Takes snap and takes a normal 5 step drop from under center. Stands in pocket and looks for open receiver for 2-3 seconds. No one is open. Then he runs out to the right because sees opening and is able to turn it into a big run. Clearly you can see the difference in the plays. Yes, he ran with his QB. But he didn't take as far a drop considering Shotgun vs. Under Center. He stayed in the pocket on a passing play looking for an open receiver before running, where as you sprinted as soon as you took the snap and then after sprinting to the side stopped to look for a receiver.
