I've been watching the all-22 today. It's so frustrating, I'm starting to feel like Ben.

The defense rarely if ever covers the middle of the field and we even more rarely have a single route that goes there. The occasional seam and the occasional skinny post from AB but Bryant might not have set foot in between the numbers and beyond the sticks in the entire game.

We're getting looks that scream for in cuts, dig routes, seam routes and we're getting go routes on the outside with multiple options underneath the sticks.

If you take AB out of the equation, it's even worse.


:shock: (smh)

Doesn't Eli do a lot of middle of the field work?

Don't scratch the guy, but I do think Eli Rogers should be plenty of snaps this week too.

I can't stomach watching all-22 this week. I managed to keep my cool with the results this past Sunday but if they bench Alien...what a dumb idea unless there is something beyond the playing field that we don't know about.

It's like they don't really give Bryant a chance. The defender knows he's almost always running a go or a short drag route. If Bryant doesn't cut in by his second step, defender can just bail.

Eli replacing Bryant.

There were stretches for our offense pre bryant suspension when it actually looked like Haley might pan out and be a pretty good OC for us. That seems so long ago now...

Why are we doing this? I mean, I have posted countless times on Tomlin and Haley being conservative coaches.. but still...

Mostly short, but yes. Juju is attacking more than Rogers did, which is cool.

The oddity behind this whole thing...Bryant has had some big catches over the middle. There was the TD on the post. There were the back-to-back posts on a 2 min warning. He is big and fast; a perfect skinny post target. Make the defense honor the middle (which Bryant should be able to do so), and it will open up the 9 route.
