Downfield passing

[2]
Sep 18, 2021, 5:15 PM

Honestly, have we thrown the ball downfield 25 yards in the air yet this season? I do not think so. What good does it do for us to have all these tall receivers if we are not going to throw it down the field? The offensive line is a hot mess but I know he has the time in this game to chuck it. We call 50-50 balls 80-20 balls around here so where are they??

Frustrated. GO TIGERS

of one. We aren't even attempting downfield shots. We have some big body WRs... I'd take a jump ball to one of them over some of this other garbage we are seeing. Running everything within 5 yards of the LOS isn't going to get it done.

I don't think the ball has made it further than 10-yards in the air today.

to throw it downfield you need an OL that gives the QB time

and a QB that can actually hit a target more than three yards from the line of scrimmage.

We have neither.

We don’t throw it down the field because teams play two deep safeties against us. This takes away the deep passing game but should open up the running game. Teams know we have a garbage scheme and offensive line, so they can play 2 deep and take away the run. That’s not supposed to happen.

Yep...and it's hard to watch

The WRs have made a living winning 50/50 balls. Our deep game has been predicated on that. Don’t give me that 2 deep safety crap like teams just started doing that in 2021.
