Today, we continue our series of looking at passing concepts the Packers ran in 2020. We kicked this series off last week with one of my favorites: All Go HB Seam. Last week’s concept was designed to hit vertical shots down the field. This week’s concept plays off the well-worn Stick concept and is designed to pick up a few yards off a quick throw, while allowing Davante Adams to use his specific skill set to break down defenders from the slot.
For starters: what is the Stick concept? Stick is a West Coast concept, believed to have been created by the late, great Bill Walsh (though there are concepts from Sid Gillman that look almost exactly the same).
