Relax. We got this.
But first, drops. We had one drop last night. You’d like to have none but I remember multiple drops in one drive on a few occasions. So, I like the hands our receivers have, all ten of them who caught a pass last night. We have freakish depth at receiver and the quality is above average too, I’d say.
Now to completions.
Let’s be generous and say long bombs have a 50% completion percentage. If you can get 60-70% completion rate getting six yards or more, that’s what you do. You want to sustain drives. Going 31 for 33 will sustain a lot of drives.
As long as you go long every now and then, and we do, just to remind people we can and maybe even hit one, there’s no reason to waste a down too often.
On a side note:
I’m seeing improvements in the running game.
P.S. After seeing what Payton Turner did last night, I’m thinking we’ll have some “best ever” DLine talk soon.
