    My guess is that we might want to use RPOs that punish LBs who crash hard against the IZ. If such a thing is possible, anyway.
    Sub bubble screen with rocket toss. Rocket toss is a LOT more effective than bubble screens and they achieve the same thing, getting the ball to the perimeter fast after the snap.

Actually I'm sure you will disagree but it seemed to me that Werts did just fine with short passes and was very accurate. From Monkey oops damn that spell check right down to the present day, our coaches have ideologically opposed developing a short passing game, even though short passes are EXPONENTIALLY easier than long ones (think about it...the spread of field covered literally increases with the square of the distance). But we have been told on this board that people have trouble imagining exponential relationships.

    So let's keep it simple. Short passes easy. Long passes hard. Werts good w/ short passes. Throw short passes. Presto your option game should open right up.

    All you really need is something to force the other team's DBs not to crowd the box or take away the ends.
    I'd actually go with the opposite. Short passes are harder than long passes. Long passes are allowed longer to develop and can have a degree of throwing in a general area and letting a receiver adjust to it. Short passes are often extremely timing based and have to be very precise. There's also typically a much shorter reaction time required to make the decision to read/throw. Also there's some EXTREMELY difficult passes that don't even go 5 yards from the LoS.

    You definitely have to have the arm strength to make downfield passes. And yea there are some situations where throwing downfield requires pinpoint accuracy and can raise the difficulty, but overall I'd say there's less margin for error throwing it short.

    I’m not sure rocket toss is as effective from shotgun/pistol as from under center.

    Sun Belt Conference commissioner Keith Gill said Thursday that “everything is on the table” when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic’s potential effect on the 2020 football season.
    Schools in the league have already canceled all organized team activities, including spring football practice and spring games, until the end of the semester. In a conference call with reporters, Gill said that if the COVID-19 shutdown is lifted at some point this summer, it’s possible fall training camp could be expanded in order to make up for time lost this spring

    “That’s why we’re going to work with our coaches to get a sense of what they think, with the healthcare professionals to make sure we have to right acclimatization period,” Gill said. “We’re going to be looking at models … to figure out what makes the most sense, just to make sure we get it right. That being said, we still don’t know how this pandemic will run its course. We’ve got to have contingencies in place until we know whether we can open on the right day or do we have to delay? There are all different types of options to consider. The football question is an open question.”
    Gill said he has appointed a four-person Sun Belt COVID-19 Advisory Panel to discover, discuss and implement to best options when it comes to health and safety of the league’s student-athletes and fans. The panel includes Troy team physician Dr. Jeff Dugas, South Alabama infectious disease specialist Dr. Benjamin Estrada, Georgia Southern Associate Athletics Director Brandy Clouse and Texas State Student Health Center director Dr. Emilio Carranco.

    Best case scenario is things can get back to normal enough for teams to be allowed a modified spring practice in the summer. Something like 10 practices in June.

    I don’t think coaches would turn down and extended fall camp but that is already such a grind that I don’t think it would be what they want at all.
