Singleback Wing Slot - PA Post Shot (Cover 4 beater)

Looking for an easy Cover 4 beater, especially Cover 4 Drop Show 2? Then I have the play for you. In the Singleback Wing Slot formation, you will find a play called PA Post Shot that will absolutely murder Cover 4; but, there are ways to stop it so you need to make sure you make the correct read playing in Head to Head games incase your opponent makes an in-game adjustment or if they user that particular route.

The setup is as follows:

  1. Fade Circle WR
  2. Out Route TE
  3. Smart Route TE on the Out Route

Ways your opponent can stop this is by either user-ing the route, which I mentioned above, or if they make a defensive adjustment such as Deep Quarters or Deep Half with the safety, it depends on the Cover 4 they call as well as with defensive back they make adjustments to. A stock Cover 4 will not defend the route as the safety will dumb out and and only drop back so many yards which will allows your WR to get behind the defender. You can see an example of this in the above video.
