Context - Boot plays like this should always be read as Pure Progressions, keep this in mind when answering the questions.
Now, the perfect answer goes something like this...
1. This, and most other Mis-Direction plays where your back is to the L.O.S, are going to be Pure Progression reads because you can't see the defense. As you come around on the fake, it's going to read; #1➡️ #2➡️ #3➡️ #4, simply thinking, is he open = hit em', if not = move on.
2. The flat is going to be the first read every time. This high % ball easily picks up 8-10 yards and often times much more. Any time you can get the ball to your guy, in space, that's a big win. If the defense gives this to you, take it EVERY TIME.
3. Don't even think about throwing that post. You have to complete the play action in the backfield, the post is breaking across your body, there is never a time this is a good idea... I guess, if a defender falls down or they blow the coverage... but let's not bank on that. Make your life easier, ignore this temptation.
Congrats to @bigwright2, DM me your shirt size and mailing address. You were very quick and decisive and had the right idea, ✊
Until Next Time...
