Arians stated publicly several times in the last few weeks that the lack of short passes has been a LUCK Problem.
That Andrew has not been checking down to open receivers, and that they talk to him all the time about it.
What are the odds with Avery`s speed that he never got open yesterday to catch one pass? ZERO IMO.
Andrew chooses to stare down Reggie. Only a real * would not SEE this. Get a Clue!
Short routes and check downs have been in the playbook all year. Reggie is gold, though, and why Luck tended to stare him 'open' quite often though. LOL This staring down was less often recently, but anyone remember this play? Right out of a timeout, final drive to end the game, 1:48 to go down by 5. Look at the routes, 2 up the field, a safety valve check down, a drag, and one medium dig (white line).
That was Reggie Wayne on the dig on a 1st and 10 that Luck completed to him for 18 yards down to the GB 14 under pressure in traffic. I started going back and looking a plays/routes when I read constantly on here how all of our receivers were 20+ yards down field in slow developing plays that was getting Luck killed. I quickly found otherwise. That said, A. Luck has been better at spreading the ball around and making better decision where it should go.
