Just as a for instance...on most any down you want to stretch the defense, so you will likely have at least one receiver running a deeper route.
Not only this, but alot of route combination concepts involve some sort deep, or long developing route to put a defender in conflict.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
