A Trick Play to Beat the Jets

I don't know if this play is in the Broncos' playbook, but I think I have seen it before, or something similar.  Based on the Broncos' play calling during McDaniels' tenure, and the way the Jets react on defense, I think it is a winner.

My plan is to line up with two receivers to the left, tight end to the right, and two backs in the backfield.  At the snap, we set up the bubble screen left, with Royal running the hitch pattern and Thomas out blocking.  Big Ryan Clady pulls out looking for someone to level.  The Jets, having seen this play hundreds of time in film study, and known for reacting quickly to blow plays up behind the line of scrimmage, flood the area around Royal with tacklers.

 

But wait... it's a fake!  Orton fakes the throw and hands off on a draw to Moreno, who runs to the right behind the blocks of Graham, Harris, and Kuper.  The Jets, caught looking the wrong way, are out of position, and Moreno pulls off a 45-yard run.

 

The Broncos run this play successfully a couple of times, and then, late in the game when they need to run out the clock, they cross the Jets up again and actually throw the bubble screen one time.  It is good for ten yards and a first down.  What do you think?

 

I think this is a good plan, but just in case I am wearing my lucky orange shirt while I watch the game!
