I'm sorry, I mistyped - it's shuttle pass not shuffle or shovel

he's right on both counts. I would like to see the Shovel and Ladder play? Or maybe Hook and Pass?

The building block for this play is a hook route followed by a lateral.

Unless you have some firefighting or medieval siege tactic analogy, I ain't buying Hook and Ladder.

and no. there was no fight scene in gladiator where one guy had a hook and the other guy had a ladder.

and it's not the Statute of Liberty Play, kramer.

Had to go with Hook and Ladder.

Even tho it's lateral I still think of it like climbing a ladder because you're kind of like climbing the gridiron...

But "gridiron" is a whole other thread.

Pardon me, drinking have been I.

Both Hook & Ladder and Hook & Lateral are correct, however, most people know this as the former. The pass is a shovel pass. I've never heard it referred to as a shuffle pass, not even from John "Captain Obvious" Madden.
