Quick Bullet Seam
One of the pass routes I see many players use online to move the ball through the air is the seam route. Here is how I like to have the TE run the seam route down the middle of the field for a big gain.
I come out in the Gun Doubles and hot route the TE on a seam.
In the screenshot above, notice that the LOLB is playing inside of the SDT. Keep in mind that the defense called is the 46 Normal Cover 3.
Once the ball is snapped, the LOLB will jam the TE.
Because the LOLB jams the TE at the line of scrimmage, he forces the TE farther inside. This can throw the timing off between the TE and QB.
This often puts the TE in a bad position to make the catch.
In the shot above, the FS gets up in the air and knocks the pass down.
To keep the TE from getting jammed by the LOLB, I take control of the HB…
…and motion him to the left. Once he gets behind the C, I snap the ball.
This forces the LOLB to come farther to the left, allowing the TE to get off the line of scrimmage with a clean release.
Once the TE clears the underneath zone coverage, we throw him a high bullet pass.
We don’t take control of the TE, we just let him go up for the pass on his own. He makes it deep down the field for a big gain.
Seam routes can be run with TE’s or WR’s. It is most effective when the receiver is tall. With just a little motion, you can see how it can alter the way the defensive coverage is played.
