Sandy5prings Posted November 13, 2015 Share Posted November 13, 2015 I did some digging on the depth of our passing attempts on nflsavant.com and here's what I found.In 2015 so far, we are the 4th worst team in the league in terms of deep passes (15+ yards) attempted. Only Seattle, Dallas & Kansas City are worse.2014 sucked in every way possible but here's the deal, last year, we were 5th in the league in the same categoryIn terms of the percentage of plays where we try to throw deep, we are #31 in the league this year at 5.63% with only Alex Smith and the Chiefs below us at 5.48%We can talk about bad O-Line etc. but consider this, noodle arm Peyton Manning and the Broncos throw deep 10.41% of their plays, almost twice as much as ours and they have a terrible O-Line and Gary Kubiak is supposed to be running the Shanahan style offense.As last year's stats show, Matt Ryan is more than capable of consistently throwing it deep but for some reason, he has turned into the Southern Alex Smith.
