From our rules: QB Dropbacks –Purposefully dropping too far back in the pocket to avoid pressure during regular passing plays is not allowed. Defensive AI doesn't take into account how far back in the pocket the QB is, allowing for wide open out routes and passes into the flats. This includes hitting a WR on said routes on screen plays. A normal QB dropback would be considered to be no more than 7-10 yards at most from the initial line of scrimmage, in the case of an under center passing play. From the shotgun, dropbacks should be limited to 2-3 additional yards from the line of scrimmage, since the concept of the shotgun is that it is intended to remove the need for the QB to dropback on shorter routes and at most would only require 1-2 steps back for deeper routes to develop. I've seen a bit too many instances in highlights or in games of QB's dropping back from shotgun 7-10 yards, which means you are throwing the ball from 12-15 yards behind the LOS. I understand that for screen passes you have to drop back farther due to the fact that the offensive linemen do not even touch the DL on the way to the QB, so an exagerated drop-back is acceptable on those types of plays. However, when throwing from the shotgun for normal pass plays you should not drop back more than a few steps (2-3 yards). A good rule of thumb is that if you are throwing from 10 yards or more behind the LOS you are dropping back too far. Thanks guys.
