    1.

    2. beware of where you need to throw the ball high, low, in or out

    3. always be looking around...a defense player may be somewhere he is not expected to be

    4.those were the receivers...if a WR has to he will change the area he was intended to run to as the play was called in the huddle

    5. 11 on defense and 11 on offense....the defense put 8 men in close (front and second line of defense) to stop a run play means now there are only 3 to men to stop pass play

    6. probably means a play action pass...looks like a play you will give to the running back, but you fake it and throw deep

    7.

    8.Coach has to many different pass plays too complicated

    9. when th quarterback runs in the opposite direction of his offensive linemen as if he handed the ball to a back, trying to deceive the defense

    I'll try.

    1. Roll up those outside linebackers

    Block them for insert play.

    2. Know your site adjustments. Understand

    Audibles, learnining the playbook and understanding each scenario.

    3. Keep your head on a swivel! Slide out there! Pick up that robber

    He told the lineman to watch for the blitz. The robber is just that blitzer who doesn't show blitz from the line.

    4. Sanderson and Fox will break off their routes...

    Really? You need to know this?

    5. When we put eight in a box, you gotta jam those receivers

    This means how many people are put between the tackles. In this nickel defense or goaline, you only have 2 corner backs and one safetfy. The rest of line backers and lineman. He just told whoever to make sure to jam the receiver since he probably won't have any help for the deep threat.

    6. Let's run smoke and throw

    Screens and fakes.

    7. Red Beats Read

    Not sure on that one.

    8. 200 variations on a pass!

    What's wrong with this picture?

    Can't remember, but I'm thinking just so pass orienated and not much run.

    9.-It was a bootleg.

    This was the part of the movie where he Jamie first got it, coach called a play, Jamie changed the play at the line of scrimmage. After the score, the coach wanted to know basically what was he doing, he told what he did, not why he change the play. The play he ran was a naked bootleg. Which means the the line blocks down and gets the defense to committ to one side while the QB runs back the other direction. This helps keep the defenese honest without putting too many people in the box or over committing to the run. Just opens up the offense.
