Chalk Talk with Brock: Locker’s TD pass to Goodwin

Oct 12, 2010, 10:22 AM | Updated: Apr 4, 2011, 7:52 pm

Chalk Talk with Brock is a new weekly feature for the Brock and Salk blog in which Brock Huard will break down some aspect of football. Whether it be a few plays from the the Huskies or Seahawks game or a more general football concept, Brock will explain them in terms an average football fan can understand.

This week, Brock breaks down D’Andre Goodwin’s touchdown catch on a fourth-and-2 play in Saturday’s loss to Arizona State.

The Huskies faked a fly sweep with Jesse Callier to the right side of the field, Jake Locker rolled out to the left and hit Goodwin on a crossing pattern for a touchdown.

As Brock explains, the effectiveness of the play fake was dependant on the timing of the snap.

Here’s an endzone view of the play that was shot by a fan.
