Throwing Short Of The 1St Down On 3Rd Down

Recommended Posts

Generally it is taking what the defense gives you.

Fairly basic defense. Play the sticks, purposefully leaving underneath stuff open to bait the QB into throwing it short. Come up and make the tackle.

Also you sometime bring pressure to force the hot throw and then make the tackle to insure a longer route won't develop.

Granted, 3rd & long, Ryan more often than not takes what the D gives him and throws it short. It is aggravating but who he is
