as long as im asking. you know that short pass that Carr does to johnson? basicly johnson takes like too steps then cuts right and gets the ball in the middle of the field, right behind the LBs. Andre has picked up some big yardage on that pass. Is there a name for that pass?

A screen pass typically has offensive linemen or perhaps the tight-end leading the way blocking ahead of the receiver.

The quick throw to Johnson in the flats would be a ummm..... a quick pass in the flats.

You are referring to a Hitch pass.

Yup, it's a hitch. When we run it to Bradford it goes nowhere. When we run it to AJ, it almost always a 7-12 yarder. Like money in the bank. If the db comes up too close, then AJ can just fight off the bump, and fly right past him. He is one dangerous dude.

Isn't that called a "drag" route? When AJ starts on the left and goes to the right while DC is doing a naked bootleg AJ is almost always open.
