To effectively overcome the problems presented by modern defenses, a complete passing game must possess both diversity and "learnability." Concept Passing: Teaching the Modern Passing Game combines these two characteristics results in a highly sensitive balancing act for offensive coaches. A complete passing game must be able to attack a given defensive structure on all levels yet be learnable enough to yield a high degree of efficiency. The following system of passing presented in this book totals nine concepts that adapt to numerous protections, quarterback drops and actions, and personnel groupings. Furthermore, the concepts have been applied in varied presentations to the defense (huddle or no huddle) and at small college, junior college, and high school levels. 

Chapters include: Defining Concept-Based Passing Formations and Personnel Groupings Passing Game Terminology Protection Schemes The Drag Concept The Vertical Concept The Two-Man Game Concept The Quick Concept The Corner Concept The Horizontal Concept The Numbers Concept The Three-Level Concept The Object Concept Application of Pass Concepts
