IMO, the deep shot frequency was head scratching. The timing was either really weird, or when down and we had no choice. Those sail routes to MAC vs MN were picture perfect, and we never saw them again. We also saw some very well timed routes to Pascal that we never saw again.
Bottom line, if you're #6 in accuracy, you take more shots. Simple as that. If there was a reason to be conservative, it's more the lack of decent size and fast options as pass catchers. I was surprised we didn't see some shot to Pittman later in the year when he was coming on.
Yeah just gives us lots of freedom on what we do in FA and the draft. It doesn’t tie our hands. I am sure they would rather have a second round tackle be able to start right away and keep Nelson at guard. But if one isn’t there you like or a better corner or edge is there you have the freedom.
I'm not putting Rivers down, or necessarily disagreeing with you. But his high rating in deep shot accuracy was most likely because they were so conservative with him. Only taking shots when there was the right opportunity. And those opportunities were limited because of his abilities.
It’s kind of a moot point now anyway. I’m on to Cincinnati...er, I mean Stafford.
I have a friend who is a lions fan. I offered a 1st round pick and a pint of beer for stafford and he accepted so we’re set. My only question is do I send the bill for the beer to irsay or Ballard? Pete ward?
