birds_till_death Posted December 15, 2015 Share Posted December 15, 2015 This is not a bash Ryan or Shannahan thread, but just a thought as to why it isn't working.Matt's greatest asset in the past was always being a rhythm passer and throwing to a specific spot on the field.He would read defenses pre snap, and the ball usually came out as soon as he hit the right step in his drop and he trusted his receivers would be in the correct spot. Very timing oriented.This new offense is more read and react. Receivers have different route options based on what the defense does once the ball is snapped. This causes Ryan to read who is open then make an accurate throw to the moving receiver. That's why he seems so off on some throws even when the receiver is open.Previous offenses had him practice and throw to spits on the field and it was the receivers job to be there. Now Matt has to make the accurate throw and try to hit/lead the receivers in the moment. Harder to practice those throws and could be some reason for his inaccuracy and making horrible decisions.Thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
