The Jet Sweep is a great play, if you use it right in your offense. The big advantage comes from the counters.
Today’s JDFB Quick Clinic question is a great one. It’s about running counters off the Jet Sweep motion. Probably my favorite reason to even put the Jet Sweep in the playbook.
In the Pistol Power Offense System, Jet Sweep is a fairly cheap play to install. You just use the same blocking as our basic stretch play. But it can have big advantages if you’re using the ‘counters’ we talk about in this episode. Jet Sweep make great window dressing!
