My high school called out end around a jet sweep, which is why I was lost on the last one.
Nov 24th, 2010 at 04:40 GMT
i wish the nfl did more options, good quiz tho

As with cardspartan, Jet Sweep is what it is now more commonly referred to as with more teams going to the Spread. Should definitely be at least an alternate answer.

I would add the Wildcat and a halfback pass
Nov 24th, 2010 at 20:14 GMT
You could add a bunch more- hail mary, halfback/fullback dive, swing pass, and depending on how specific you want to get there are about a dozen passes you would add (post, streak, corner, slant, in, out, etc.)

Maybe accept pitch on the sweep answer, its the same thing just another term for it.
Nov 25th, 2010 at 00:07 GMT
accept anexation of puerto rico for fumblerooski
Nov 25th, 2010 at 03:20 GMT
add direct snap, and QB kneel
Jan 26th, 2011 at 17:21 GMT
i second the "annexation of puerto rico"
May 2nd, 2013 at 04:10 GMT
Needs a misdirection/ counter, a power, a wham, a fly pattern, a go pattern, a fade pattern, a post pattern, a seam pattern, a curl pattern, an out pattern and a cross pattern, to name a few. Great idea, though.
