The motion is going to accomplish two things-

First it is going to widen out the LB to the TE side unless he's blitzing. It's also going to give Ginn a running start at his route.

Second it is going to show our QB (I'll take Zwick) what coverage the DB's are playing.
The LB's alignment should not be altered at all by the motion...depending on the coverage, you said Cov 2 in your scenario (although I would think more along the lines of Cov 3 or a Cov 31 in the Dime package or even a Cov4 with the LBs covering everything underneath given the situation at hand), the CB alignment would be the only change with the motion.

With your motion, you also do not guarantee a good read for your quarterback...motion often triggers a secondary audible. The pre-snap read of leverage and cushion is a better indicator than the motion...

So many deep routes is risky in such a situation...you are risking a sack which runs the clock and longballs have a much smaller completion percentage. I agree that there should always be one stretch route to keep the defense honest, but to consider any play unstoppable because of a combination of routes is misguided as there are so many factors that contribute to either success or failure.

In a two-minute drill, a team must 1) never take a sack 2) hurry but don't rush...do not force an issue 3) move forward on every play, get what you can, and get out of bounds when possible 4) Take what the defense is giving you. Often, a team will allow the short outs for a stretch then make the adjustment. The QB/receiver must be able to make the change "on the run"

Kyle Young/Cade Stover man crush. Stomp!
  • He said a base 4-3. Some of the scenario's are in Nickel and Dime. The LB coverage is usually flat 1/3rd unless they are in man-under zone which gives the LB one on one with Hamby or Haw. The deep routes only cause a sack if all men are covered. A 10-12 yard out with Ginn will only take 2-3 seconds and the QB will see coverage on him first and early. If the QB has to check down to his 3rd and 4th option he may be pressured but his first two reads will be within his 3rd and 4th step back. If the QB isn't going to have time to throw with only 4 men rushing and 5-6 blocking, then this scenario is screwed before you start. Three step drops with slants and fades will not get you down the field against a quality defense.
