  • Different systems have different play names.

    In most systems the 3 back is the fullback and the 6 hole is off right tackle. Throwback could mean a lot of things. My best guess would be that it was some kind of flea-flicker with the fullback pitching the ball back to the quarterback who would then throw a pass to the tight end or a wide-out.

  • 36 throwback american football

  • In what context was it said? The first thing that comes to mind for me is a "throwback" jersey. A 36 throwback might refer to the wearing of a jersey from 1936?

  • It's a reverse where player number 36 fakes an end around and tosses the ball back to the QB.

  • Holy crap, I watch and LOVE Friday Night Lights, and I was just wondering this too!!! You just posted it 21 minutes ago. <3
