What is the 'pocket' in football?

The "pocket" is a horseshoe shaped area formed by offensive linemen that drop back and protect the quarterback during a pass play. In theory, if the quarterback remains within the pocket, he will have sufficient time to find a receiver and throw a pass. If defensive players penetrate the pocket before the pass is thrown, the quarterback is either sacked or forced to run out of the pocket...and then he's on his own.
