I’m ecstatic to see 24% of the passes going 20+ yards down the field. With Dunbar, Corbin and Jefferson, we have the size out there to throw the ball up and let our guys make plays. And despite not having great speed, Dunbar burned his guy on a few occasions Saturday. On two occasions he either dropped the ball, or was overthrown. Postma needs to be able to throw catchable balls and our guys have to come down with them when they are catchable. But there’s no chance of that if we don’t throw those passes.
Like everyone else here, I would really like to see us exploit the middle of the field more often. The QB has to keep an eye on sitting LBs, but the nature of our screen game is that eyes tend to get stuck behind the LOS, thus opening up huge holes in the middle of the field. We just don’t throw enough slants and crossing routes to take advantage of that tendency.
