View Full Version : Opening up Post Route ( SE)
09-26-2006, 12:14 AM
I havenít tried it yet but what can I do to open up post routes. What if I motion a streak over there same side w/ Post will this effect the FS?
Reason why I am asking is because I have been having trouble out of the FS when running Post routes.

Yes a streak will help you out. Highlite the streak route and throw the post as late as possible. Also look to see what type of coverage the safeties are playing. Some are easier to run a post against than others.

1st and foremost, READ THE D pre-snap. If the opponent is in COVER 3 or COVER 1, forget the route entirely. If he is in a COVER 2 alignment, then......
run post routes, especially to the TE work well against the cover 2 defenses. When I have a guy playin a lot of cover 2 against me, I will hot route the outside wr's on both sides to streaks, then I will highlight the route of the wr on the side that I am running the post into, this gives the illusion of you looking down the wr and it pulls the safety that way slightly, then as the TE makes his cut, I switch the highlight to him and hit him. One thing to consider is that in cover 2 ZONES, you may have to feather the ball a little over the LB's because the MLB will jump and INT it, vs cover 2 MAN defenses, this isn't generally an issue as the MLB is covering a back. One other wrinkle may be to adjust your blocking to the left so that you can step slightly left to avoid the rush and flow "with" the cut of the TE and maintain your passing angle.
just my 2 cents.....lol

Everyone should post their ways of opening up the Post and how to use it in a scheme.
What I do is: 3WR- 1 WR on left, 2 WR on left. Streak Wr on left and throw it to him a few times to stretch the safety. With the safety down field with the Streak, the post will be open. But I throw a bullet b/c the safety always seems to make a great break on the ball and get their for the tackle or int (if its lobbed).
Basically its variations of that idea.
