Let’s take a look at how this play should work in more detail.

PA All Cross #1

This is how the play should look before the snap.  Remember to block you running back and motion the B/circle receiver to the left.

PA All Cross #2

This screenshot shows that both the safety and the cornerback are going with our receiver on the fade route which will allow our receiver on the skinny post route to get wide open.

PA All Cross #3

When our quarterback releases the ball, you can see how much open room our receiver has.  He is wide open.

Cool play. Funny thing is I put that in my custom playboy and I can’t get it to show up when I play. Kinda nutty. So I run it out of TE Bunch.

With the play out of the bunch te if you do the EXACT setup but curl the te, it holds the safety and the post becomesWIDE OPEN for a td against that pesky quarters cover 4 drop . Good play to light up cover 3 and 4
