Basic human instinct when threatened is either a “fight or flight” response. For nearly all untrained QBs, the response to the pass rush threat is “flight” to run away, and who could blame them? But this will never allow the QB to execute his offense (unless coach designed a “snap the ball, then run away” play) and this means that a pass rush dictates our entire offense, which is unacceptable. So, the QB must be able to “Evade” in the pocket while maintaining his throwing posture and platform so he can still execute the offense. It’s simple, but certainly not easy, and as you’ll see in the video, a bit counterintuitive.
