Inside the Playbook Decides to Pass to the U-Back

MnB B1G Preview: UNL Schemes for Poor DT Play

Why Peyton Manning is unreal, and throws Colt McCoy should emulate


Behind the link are two videos from NFL Network illustrating the kind of read an NFL QB has to make in a very, very short amount of time. Oh, and some pretty good throws, too. Like Chris Brown (who writes SmartFootball) I am not convinced that the "2-trap" call is actually what is being played. It looks like split field coverage to me, with the 2WR side in Cover-2 zone and the 1WR side in man. You can clearly see the 1WR side LB ready to cover the TE in man, then rush once he sees the TE pass set. The other LB seems to be in zone to start, then find the RB outlet pass at the play develops. In fact in the first play I am not so sure it isn't some sort of exotic QQH/"Revis island" coverage. In any event, the second play just plays out like it is vs. C2 zone: 2 deep WR vs 1 deep safety. And that's what NFL QBs have to sort through in order to win.
