The Reverse


Recommended Posts

Reverses don't work well anymore for the same reason the counter trey is seldom effective- defenses are much, much faster now than they were even just 10 years ago.

I guess that's why Carolina's Steve Smith scored on one this weekend. :rolleyes:

Reverses are a high-risk, high-reward play. When called at the right time and executed properly (blocked well), they still work. Not to mention they are useful to "keep a defense honest" to slow down pursuit to one side and so they don't cheat over to one side too much.

he's used the end around a bunch but a double reverse from moss to brown would be A-MAZING

You're right, that would be something to just see the speed heading each way.... It would still have to be executed well, but that seems like enough speed to catch someone of their guard.
