Let Your Flag Football Slot Receiver Eat
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jan 5, 2020

If you spend any Sunday afternoon watching an NFL team these days you could be forgiven if after awhile it reminded you of a flag football game. NFL quarterbacks  are so talented that the run game seems like an afterthought at times and why not?

The passing game in some ways becomes the run game for some teams as you break them down. The ball is out so quickly that other than a batted ball there is not pressure threat to the quarterback.

Every NFL team also seems to have a great slot receiver with great feel and quicks in space. When you combine this with a quarterback and receiver who seem to be able to read each other’s mind with option routes, it is a powerful tool.

Well, we don’t all have an NFL slot receiver on our team but everything is relative. The flag football team you are playing probably doesn’t have a great nickel DB to match up with your slot receiver either. 

This 6v6 flag football play gives you a way to feature your slot receiver while at the same time progressing through a read if they double him or cheat to take him away.
