Default Watch the pass blocking on this play.

Deebo's TD in the second.



I must admit, first I said, WTF? and then I chuckled.

Very smart blocking, gives the QB better sight lines for a crossing route. Could have used that block on the ball thrown into the DT later in the game.

It's called flop blocking.

Except when done by FCS teams, then it's called cut blocking.

I can dig it, I just thought it was funny. I actually didn't see it originally. Then I looked and saw all our guys on their bellies. I replayed the clip and that when I noticed it.

This is by design...

EDIT: Jumped the gun and posted this. Sorry. Looks like you knew it was by design the whole time.

I liked Mike's use of his shoulder to pump fake and how he turns and throws the strike to Deebo. He doesn't waive the ball in the air or handle it loosely, but his shoulder movement drew the defense that way just enough.

Check that. The man in motion drew the defense and left a small opening for Deebo. But I still like to see a QB use the pump fake. To me, it means he is looking over the entire field and not focused on one receiver.

That was a part of the design of the play, given that he does it so quickly. Great play design, hopefully we keep it in with Jake back in. Or throw it to the flat and catch them flat footed.

Some of out past O-lines have done a variation of this technique. Of course they flopped backwards instead of forwards, and it was heavy on the flop part and light on the block part.
