The Passing Chronicles: Stick-Nod with Lookie in 2020

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).
