RYNE Posted September 14, 2011 Share Posted September 14, 2011 In my opinion the #1 problem with our passing game especially on 3rd down is the oline not holding up long enough. But I think another thing is Ryan being a little to passive. On 1st and second down I can understand this and not wanting to turn it over. Its a smart move to play dink and dunk with the under wr or back. But in certain situations such as 3 and 12 on our side of the 50 yard line doesn't it make sense to always have either Roddy or Julio on a deep pattern and if nothing else is open for Ryan to put some air under it and let one of those two try and make a play? I mean roddy and julio are big boys who can jump. I'd much rather see that and get a pick down on the 20 or 15 yard line then just throw a 5 yard pass to a back who gets tackled anyways 7 yards short of the first down. That doesn't do any good. We just punt anyways the next down. I know its never a smart idea really to just throw a ball up for grabs, but I think in those kinds of situations it make more sense with the WR size we have to try and make something happen rather than just giving up and coming up 8 yards short.
