The NFL is known for its deep, wide-open offense, but the league’s deep passing game also features some of the deepest run plays in the league.
The teams most commonly seen in these plays are the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts.
There are also some running backs who excel in deep passing games, but not always.
The list includes LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and DeMarco Murray.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of the “semaphore,” it’s when a team calls a play and uses their timeouts to force the defense to either run a certain number of plays or allow the offense to make a certain amount of plays.
When the Colts were in Denver, they called a “play” with their timeout that would allow them to go over the 1-yard line.
If the defense made the correct play, they would have a one-score lead.
With the Broncos playing a lot of man coverage, the Colts used a play called a pass over the middle, which is similar to the play in which the team called a play.
As you can see in the below clip, the Indianapolis Colts had a 3rd and 3 at their own 21 yard line, which would have allowed the defense one more play.
If they had run it over the outside, it would have given the Colts a touchdown.
The Colts would have had the ball with 2:40 left in the half, so they had a few seconds to react.
The Colts were able to convert a play to a touchdown in the first quarter of the game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
They ran a play on their first play of the half.
On this play, running back Kendall Wright ran a route to the outside with a slight angle, but he couldn’t hit his target.
This would have resulted in a short gain for the Colts.
In the second quarter of that game, the Chiefs were in a 3-point shooting situation.
The play below is an example of what the Chiefs would have called on this play.
The Chiefs called a time out for the defense.
If Wright had not run the route, he would have hit his defender.
It was only 1 yard, but this would have been a huge gain.
At the end of the day, it’s hard to judge how well the Colts did on this game-winning drive.
But the defense did an excellent job of protecting the football.
There are two types of plays you can expect in a deep passing offense.
First, you’ll see an offense called a trap play, which basically means you want to force your defense to get beat deep.
If you do this, the defense is in trouble.
Second, you will see a team call a play that’s basically a pass-heavy offense, and it’ll be called in a passing attack.
The goal of this offense is to force defenses to give up too many yards in order to run the ball.
We’ve covered the “big plays” in the passing game previously.
Let’s talk about the “semi-somethings.”
The Eagles used this type of play for the first time against the Colts in the AFC Championship game.
For most of the season, the Eagles were using a “big play” formation.
They would play a Cover-3 zone defense with two deep safeties on the outside.
This allowed the Eagles to throw the ball to their outside receivers on the inside and create separation.
The Eagles also used a 3X1 formation with their deep safes and the wide receivers on a zone alignment.
If there were no tight ends on the field, this would create a big play.
There is no need to be afraid of the deep pass.
Here’s an example from the Eagles’ first playoff game.
The Chargers run a deep slant against the Eagles.
In this play we see the Eagles using their deep zone defense to contain the deep passes.
They can either go with the “3X1” or they can use a “3-3” formation with the tight ends.
The tight ends run a post route.
If their routes are covered, the wide receiver runs a post on the backside.
The outside receiver runs an out route.
This gives the Eagles a safety cushion and allows the tight end to run a slant route.
This play is great because the Eagles can get the safety cushion by using their safeties and then using their tight ends to create separation from the receivers.
The deep safety in this example is able to make the play with a safety over his shoulder and then make the catch.
Another great example of a “seminal play” comes from the Patriots’ playoff win against the Chargers in the Super Bowl.
They run a quick slant.
The Patriots are lined up in a Cover 1 defense, with their safety covering the outside receiver on the
