Improving the Passing Game

The Veer presents many problems for a defense. One is how to use the secondary to help stop the option. This puts the DB in the difficult position of having to play the pass and the run with equal importance. Play action is especially dangerous as the LBs will be pulled up for a moment before making thier drops... and even the DBs might get fooled - and then be caught flat-footed.

Sometimes, however, you need a good drop-back pass to convert a 2nd and long or 3rd and long. this is where I am trying to incorporate some of another offense into the mix; the West Coast Offense.

Below are some play diagrams of what I feel are the more promising routes to bring in with a minimum of fuss and muss.

More later,

Coach Smith
