So when Miami has this particular protection scheme called, in conjunction with a HB play fake (or screen where he isn't in the protection scheme) they need to be on alert. They are vulnerable up the middle and have been bitten hard on it a couple times.
I said in the uf breakdown that they need to consider scrapping the play or abandoning the play fake to ensure that the qb has the time needed.
I get the fact that sometimes defenses just win with their play calls but you can alert yourself when your protection scheme leaves you open down main street.
It is remarkable that Jarren even got this play off vs. UNC.
I just don’t understand why we do our play fakes on passing downs so often.
The defense NEVER bites and it just allows the pass rush to tee off on Jarren.
I like heavy use of play fakes, but prefer them on run downs after establishing the run.
With a young QB, I would emphasize quick reads and short routes on three step drops for the pass game and lean on my talented rbs to take pressure off him and keep him out of passing downs.
It has worked well for Longo and Howell and unc is one of the early season surprises.
Seems like we are always outthinking ourselves.
