5 arguments for the Eagles giving Kenneth Gainwell more snaps at WR
By Hunter Doyle
Creating concepts for Kenneth Gainwell wouldn’t be difficult. Here’s an idea.
With jet motion, Gainwell can also be used on touch passes or sweeps. The Eagles can build plenty of counters off of that. Jet motion can be influential in something as simple as inside zone as Paul Alexander explains:
They can have also designed play-action rollouts for Jalen Hurts to the opposite side of the jet motion with a flood concept to overload zones. The jet motion shifts the defense to one side to give the route runners and quarterback a few steps with the play designed to the other side of the field.
On the contrary, they could fake the handoff to both the running back and jet motion man and then get a big play off of a slip screen. Syed Schemes details it here:
The truth is that there are endless possibilities. Jet motion is so common in today’s league and in the football world in general. There are always new ideas being generated and it’s especially noticeable with a simple jet motion incorporated. Zach Tibbs noted that Pulaski Academy in Arkansas ran the slip screen with the jet motion man instead of the running back. It was truly a beautiful design. Gainwell could do a fine job in the motion man role alone.
