Anatomy Of A Play, Throwing “Hot” even when it looks covered

We take a look at a play from the Titans game where Gabbert pulls back on his “Hot” read due to not trusting his ability to throw with touch. For all that Gabbert is and is not, throwing with touch is not a refined aspect to his game. We all know about Gabbert’s inherent athleticism, quick release and even sheer arm strength. However, he is not a quarterback who seems to have the innate ability to process intuitively and trust his ability to throw with touch.

Arizona comes out in essentially 12 personnel with Larry Fitzgerald acting as a hybrid WR/Wing. The Titans show a stunt look pre snap but the left side of their Offensive Line should be able to slide left and keep Gabbert clean. Fitzgerald instantly becomes the “Hot” receiver versus pressure due to Man coverage on the (X) WR.
