Defensive backs are trained to read the quarterback's body language in most forms
of zone coverage. Quarterbacks can easily misdirect or influence the defensive back's position. However, it is difficult and
unproductive for a quarterback to use his shoulders, head, or eyes to affect the defender when throwing shorter passes, as
he must get rid of the football quickly. Being on time with the delivery far outweighs the value of faking. But in intermediate
plays, such as screens, curls, and layer pattterns, faking technique can be effective. Every day quarterbacks must practice
looking away or tuning to one side, then coming back to throw to the other side. always use this technique when throwing
crossing routes, deep curls, intermediate to deep outs, seams, post routes, flags, multiple cutting patterns, and screens.
Build the desired fake into each pass pattern. The fake may be a staring look or a scannning move.
