Class Assignment

Postby ShoelessJoe » Mon Apr 03, 2006 11:17 am

A little background first... so the subject of the thread seems pretty lame, I know, but for everyone who hates on school, I am currently in the best class ever... Coaching Football, taught by a member of the UF football staff.

So we have this assignment, where we are going to be teaching a technique outside, for ten minutes, just like a high school coach would do. We got to decide what technique to teach and I went with the underthrown streak (basically it's the route that Reggie Wayne and Plax run where it looks like a streak then one of the Mannings will throw the ball to their outside shoulder as soon as he sees the CB's hips turn). I love this play and it's almost unstoppable, but there's one problem, I can't find any literature on it... possibly because it's a relatively new route. My question is this, does anybody know any additional information about the route or anyplace where I can find some? Any help would be greatly appreciated and let me offer thanks in advance.

Looks like a wheel route and not a streak...



Maybe try not looking for a play named this. If I am not mistaken, this is a technique to be used on a streak play, it doesn't seem like a different "play"

perhaps search for some WR techniques, of which I know nothing, cause I was a fat lineman and not a sissy reciever.

Me too. Maybe a "skill" position guy could answer this one. :-D

Trust me knapp, you won't find it on the carolina website if it is such a good route. Nothing good comes out of there

This might be impossible but if you could obtain a game tape from an Indy game or another game that uses this strategy then show the film to the players (similar to what Jaws does on countdown). Or perhaps just ask the football teacher if he has any tips for finding out about NFL schemes and plays.

I searched for examples of this play but didn't have any luck. If you don't find a video, I'd make an animation (.gif) in Animation Shop 3 or another program that displays the route step-by-step. Best of luck.

This may have been the funniest thing I've read in this thread. Oh wait, it is :-D

On the route part, I was a WR but coach never put me in cause I was slow. That's why I started at Free Safety ;)
