POST-CORNER

What is POST-CORNER?

POST-CORNER meaning pass route in which the receiver fakes a post route momentarily before cutting outward at a 45-degree angle toward the corner of the end zone; previously called post-flag route because the corners of the end zones were marked with flags mounted on springs; nowadays pylons are used to mark the corners of the end zones, but no one has begun calling this a pylon route.
