MQ Quick Hits Ep. 17 – Trips Checks

In this episode of Quick Hits, MQ describes the three of the most commonly used adjustments to Trips for Quarters or split-field defenses. MQ provides whiteboard instruction, even giving you how offenses will counter and what situations are best for each coverage. Stress, which is MOD Sky stretched across three WRs is the first to be discussed. Special/Stubbie and the adjustment Stump is the second coverage, and Solo/Poach rounds out the three adjustments. Finally, MQ discusses the four ways to defend the single-WR: Quarters, 2-Read, Invert, and Trap.
