Why do I like the call? Look at the game situation. 3rd and medium, protecting a 3-point lead in a two-minute drill. As a defense, you want to take away the 3-step game (slant, hitch, smash, option) and force the QB to make quick decisions in the pocket…Bottom line: you can’t let him break contain, escape the pocket and make a play. A simple technique that is taught back in training camp gets the Jets beat.
