Slot Blocks Still Count…

By FirstDown PlayBook on May 8, 2021

We are like the rest of football coaches when it comes to the pass game. We don’t pay near enough attention to the Bootleg and Naked pass game. There is so much milage there that is normally left on the table.

Good football coaches understand that the Boot & Naked pass game is so lethal because it ties directly into the run game. We are not only talking about the offensive line either.

This play shows why there is still merit in having your receivers block instead of running screens all day. In this case we are highlighting the slot receiver. If you are running the weak side zone you can make a living off of this play if the slot can/will block.
