Combination routes. Every team, including the Patriots, makes use of two and three man patterns which they package with other combinations when they build a packaged play. These combinations work exclusive to each other within the same play. These can be quick passes or full five and seven step combinations. It serves the purpose of being able to attack multiple coverages. The QB reads the defense, identifies the coverage and makes his best decision on which of the route combinations heís going to work. Sometimes a receiver will be wide ass open and people will freak that the QB didnít get him the ball but often times itís because the QB is working the other side of the field.

In this picture we see two separate and distinct route combinations being run against the Denver Broncos who are in off man Cover 1 (MOC). There is a single high safety moving to close the middle of the field. At first glance this looks a lot like Cover 3 Zone but if you look closely youíll see Vereen split wide left and Devlin wide right. A Safety aligns on Vereen and a LB aligns on Devlin which indicates man coverage as does the LBís inside leverage on Devlin. If the Broncos were in Zone, CBís would have been aligned on those players with outside leverage.

We see two route combos here. The two receiver side in red is executing a Hi-Lo China/Smash concept which is outstanding against Dual Safety coverages (Cov 2, 2 Man & Cov 4). The 3 receiver side in blue is running a Stick Combination which is good against a single high safety. The green line splits the field. Brady has to choose which side to work pre-snap or immediately post-snap based on the coverage. This is an example of play packaging which most teams utilize on all levels of football. The Pats are one of the premier concept packaging teams in the NFL.
