A quick out (route) is where the WR drives straight downfield 5-15 yards and makes a sharp cut to the sideline.

The slant and hitch have worked well for us but I would like to see one play when we know the defense is looking for it and fake the hitch and then hit Gafney on the other side down field.

AJ, I think this is more properly just called an "out pattern" and represents an intermediate route. A "quick out" is a short pattern designed to pick up a crucial 2 to 5 yds and the receiver steps out of bounds to stop the clock. If the situation allows, the receiver can tightwalk the sideline to pick up extra yards before stepping out of bounds.

I think what you may be thinking of here is a "hook pattern", an intermediate route of about 10 to 15 yards. The receiver comes to a complete stop and turns 180 degrees. Ideally, the ball reaches the receiver almost immediately after his turn. If it doesn't, he may come back toward the line of scrimmage a step or two.

From Vinny's diagram of the hitch pass, you will see the position the receiver is in to catch the ball. This is a much easier pass to complete than the quick out, where the catch is made over the shoulder or the receiver twists his body to get his hands into position. Also, as it is slightly shorter, it is a more quickly developing play.

A hitch is a pattern where the WR turns back towards the QB and comes to meet the ball, shoulders facing the QB. It can be run at any distance, including zero yards, as the Carr to AJ route is run. You can call it a quick out, though an out is thrown to the sideline with the receivers shoulders away from the QB.

FWIW, the Texans can it the "Now" pattern.
