QB & WR 1 ON 1 TOURNAMENT
sunday afternoon march 1st
The RRQB Training TANDEM 2020 event is an elite level QB & WR 1 on 1 Tournament structured to force QB's and their WR's to go HEAD TO HEAD with other QB's and WR's of their own caliber in a ‘Tournament Style’ Competition in hopes of walking away with the TANDEM 2020 TOP TANDEM Award!
This event will intentionally put quarterbacks and their wide receivers in a pressure packed environment to see which guys truly embody the definition of a TANDEM:
tan·dem | \ ˈtan-dəm \
(1) : a group of two or more acting in strong conjunction to accomplish a common mission or goal
Below is the FORMAT for the event:
One round will consist of each QB and his WR competing in a TIMED ANTICIPATION ROUTE GAUNTLET against another QB and WR which will consist of completing as many routes as possible while avoiding barriers and various structures strategically placed around the field which will make it difficult to gain completions. The results will determine the next match in the bracket. It will be structured in elimination tournament style until a winner is determined. The other element of the competition will be a 1 ON 1 TOURNAMENT where the QB's and WR's will compete in head to head match ups with another QB and their WR. It will be structured in double elimination tournament style format until a winner is determined. The final element of the competition will be a head to head red zone 1 on 1 competition between the winners of the previous 2 competition segments. The winner will be given the TANDEM 2020 TOP TANDEM Award!
Below are the RULES for the event:
ROUTE ANTICIPATION SPEED ROUND
Each QB and his WR will be given 1 minute to complete as many routes as possible without hitting any of the standing barriers that the QB's will be having to throw through. Barriers and pole like structures will be strategically placed in different areas of the field that must be avoided in order to score the most possible points. During this segment, one QB and one WR will be used to complete the timed gauntlet course. The final score result will determine the next match in the bracket. In the case of a tie, each QB will get one 'deep dime' throw to a target deep down the field and the ball that lands the closest will determine the winner. [This round will be single elimination format]
1 ON 1 ROUND
Each QB will be given 4 plays to score from the 40 yard line (K-5th from the 30 yard line). Each QB will get 2 series. The out of bounds areas will be from the inside of the hash marks to the sideline and only one side of the field will be used. The QB will give the WR a route or play and once the ball is spun snapped to himself, the QB will have 4 seconds (6 seconds K-5th) to throw. There will be a 15 second play-clock which will be kept by the field's referee. Defensively, there is no 'jamming' on the line of scrimmage. A player is determined down where they are first touched with one hand below the neck. Defensive pass interference is a spot foul and replay the down. Any defensive pass interference occurring in the endzone will result in a replay of the down from the 10 yard line. Offensive pass interference will cause a loss of down and the ball will moved back to either the 20 or 4o yard line depending on which is closer. If a winner is not determined after 2 series each, each team will get one play from the starting spot and whichever team gets the furthest on that play will win that match. [This round will be double elimination format, unless in the scenario of time constraints or delaying of game flow, then it could possibly be changed to single elimination format.]
1 ON 1 REDZONE PRESSURE ROUND
If there are separate winners in each round, then there will be a 1 on 1 RedZone Pressure Round which will consist of each team getting 2 plays from the 10 yard line to score. The QB's will be given added pressure by only have 3 seconds to get rid of the football (4 seconds K-2nd) If no winner is determined after 2 series, then each team will get one play from the 20 and whoever gets the furthest will be named the winner.
