Opponent's playbook Packers'Fangle

October 25, 1998|By MIKE PRESTON

The formation: Split, pro set.

The action: At the snap, the linemen lock into their pass-protection sets. Wide receiver Antonio Freeman (86), split wide left, runs a hitch-and-go route. Wide receiver Robert Brooks (87), split right, runs a 12-yard-and-in route, and tight end Mark Chmura (89) runs a straight fly. Fullback William Henderson (33) appears to run a flare and then angles across the middle, while running back Travis Jervey (32) pass blocks on the left side. Quarterback Brett Favre (4) takes a three- to five-step drop, and looks for Brooks. Favre's second option is Henderson.
