Off base but valid...

Article from the post blaming the wide receivers. When your are 3-6, I guess everyone shares the blame.

Getting Off the Ground Is a Problem - washingtonpost.com

For God's sake, can I see 10 passes over 10 yards this week? Is that too much to ask?

Re: Off base but valid...

I agree to an extent, the WR also have to find other ways to get open. I mean it is great the defense is playing a cover two, but you gotta find the seams in the zone.

Tampa plays what they call a "Tampa Two" which is like a cover two with the middle linebacker playing zone . Like any cover two formation, it's soft spot is in the middle, in this case it would be the short middle, in front of the middle linebacker.

Quick slant the hell outta them, and then take a couple shots deep.

Whether it is too much too ask depends on how much you want us to throw this week. If it's 30+ times, then no, I don't think it's too much to ask.

P.S.-I know you weren't speaking literally, but I'm a jackass like that.

I say if they want to take 3 guys out of the play, run the ball and hit 'em short!

If they adjust into man at halftime, then lets take em deep!

not sure how much blame can be on the WRs when i think the defense, QB, and OL, and injuries are more to blame.

Re: Off base but valid...

there were plenty of times in the philly game when randle el and lloyd were open. the problem was that marc brunell was too busy running for his life. good football teams are built from the line up. and both our lines have big time under achieved this year
