Run-and-Shoot Offense: Passing
on December 15, 2013
Davis gives a good overview of the core routes, reads, and adjustments in the offense, but without drills or explanations on how they teach the techniques, it just skims the surface.

For a series about the whole offense, he spends 2 minutes out of a 124 minute video on pass protection. All he really does there is say what he *calls* the pass protections, that they have a call in case there are 2 potential rushers backside, and tells where the FB goes on one of them. He doesn't bother breaking down what these calls actually are or how they work, who blocks who in each protection, or how the protections tie in with the QB's drop. It's like watching a coaching DVD on a zone read running game that doesn't cover zone blocking.
I've heard that Run and Shoot coaches have been extremely cagey about their pass protection since the early 90s and all their famous struggles vs. zone blitzes, but still...the total glossing over of pass protection in a DVD on a passing offense is a horrible oversight. I hope the other 2 volumes in the series address this issue, but I have my doubts.
This is a good introduction for someone with no knowledge of the offense who wants to get started. However, do NOT buy this DVD thinking it'll tell you enough to install the run and shoot passing offense successfully.
