Chris Monfiletto - TE Technique in The Pass Gameby Lauren's First and Goal
Tight End Technique
Tight Ends have revolutionized the pass game since the Twenty first century becoming lethal weapons that quarterbacks love.In some cases they have become the go-to receiver.
Football tight ends play one of the most important positions in the modern offense because they must possess a unique skill set that is a mixture of several other players. They must block like offensive linemen and catch passes like receivers.
In order to be a successful tight end, players must possess the right balance between speed, strength, and elusiveness. They must be quick with their feet and strong with their hands. Once the quarterback identifies them, they must be ready to catch the pass. Tight ends can also be used along with the offensive linemen to protect the quarterback during passing plays.
They may be used to mislead defenses by means of lining up as though they'll assist block for a quarterback or running back, however rather than running downfield to catch a pass. The tight end also can line up out wide.
A good tight end can stretch and cause match-up issues for a defense. Turning him into a good route runner and blocker in space are important aspects of having a player on the field who can do it all. It all comes with proper technique.
