That is not, at all, even remotely realistic. Three seconds is considered solid protection in the NFL. Any offense calling for five or more seconds of pass protection every play is seriously flawed to begin with.
The line also needs to hold up for more than five seconds for this to work.
This is the same problem that the steelers had last year. With the smaller speed receivers, you can rack up big yards but in the red zone it gets harder because they dont have the space to operate in. When Fleener and Allen get more experience it will help. Also improved line play will give more time for receivers to get open. Although it seems to be a sin sometimes to say it here, getting a WR like Allen would help both in Red Zone plays and on third downs. A guy who can go up and get the ball. A lot of analysts are starting to say it too. Not saying it will happen but who knows. An offense who scores 25-30 points per game does help the D
Well, if you look at the Steelers now, you see that Heath Miller is off to a career year, now that Arians is gone. We've always had small receivers here in Indy and haven't struggled in the redzone like we have this year. The reason being, we actually used our TE's as primary targets in the redzone in the past. Arians doesn't do that (for whatever reason) and our offense suffers for it.
