A common phrase in football circles is to say that offenses are “adding a wrinkle to their gameplan.” What that actually means, is that it’s getting more specific, more innovative, and more creative. The offense is certainly not up-to-speed yet, but everyday I see new routes and new patterns introduced out on the field.
Today, the receivers and quarterbacks were working on routes that put them in the back corner of the endzone. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan worked specifically with the receivers to improve the crispness of their routes. Check out some of the video below:
The video is a little grainy, so here’s what’s going on. First quarterback Rex Grossman hits Jabar Gaffney in stride. Next, quarterback John Beck hits Leonard Hankerson. Grossman follows that up with a strike to Terrence Austin. The sequence was finished with a pass incomplete and slightly behind from Beck to Brandon Banks.
It was nice to see Beck and Banks back out there after being limited with minor injuries lately.
The next video shows a series of routes in the back of the endzone, focused on the receivers. Gaffney, Aldrick Robinson, Banks, Nile Paul, and Hankerson are featured:
This is nothing earth-shattering, but all of the receivers looked improved in route-running over previous days.
