In the single back wing Stack i was unable to motion the X receiver back out to the left on the PA Y drag Wheel play? Am i missing something?

I wanted to make a comment on the 4 verticals play. If you’re facing a cover 3, I’ve found that you can take the square receiver and put him on an out route. Still follow the instructions that’s listed, but if you put him on an out route, he gets really wide open. I was getting 10 to 15 yards per play with it. Plus if it’s late in the game and you need to save your timeouts, this is a great yards getting play that is easy to step of bounds with.

But as always, great work guys. I’m diving deep into this and I’m already seeing great results.
