MUST throw the ball deep down the sidelines.

Look. lets not get confused and get the facts straight first. Protection for long plays with this team is few and far between. but the simple truth is that when it is there, we are not keeping the defense honest at any given point. which is why a chris hope, can just hang around, 10 yards off the line of scrimmage reading alex like hawk, cause the thought of the pass over his head is really not there, and hasnt been for any defense all season.

its imperative we find out who the REAL young play makers are on this team, these wideouts have seen a lot of 1 on 1 coverages and yet have failed to really gain separation by the simplicity of the the routes themselves. let a crabtree, a morgan, hill, jones, go up for a JUMP ball 20 40 yards down the sideline. there is only 4 things that can happen in all actuality.

1. you throw the deep ball and its picked - most of the time the corner is tackled immediately following the pick, resulting in nothing more than a punt field position wise.

2. you throw the deep ball and its caught down field - big play, momentum changer, defensive moral breakdown.

3. you throw the deep ball - and get the pass interference. spot foul, first down, again, defensive moral breaker.

and of course the simple incomplete pass. we really need to keep the d honest and find out exactlyu what the outside talent on this team is really about..

Max protect 2 man route. We should try it but i also think smith will hold it to long instead of giving his receiver a chance. He needs to start cutting it loose like when we had Bryant and Turnrt
So instead of short interceptions you want long interceptions?

I suppose it's the same as a punt.

Good call!

he holds the ball for a few plays in the last game, but in the first game and second half of the Texans game he was letting it go on time and on point. He has one bad game and now "he holds the ball to long" Calm down people. For some reason Raye likes to throw all of his deep routs over the damn middle! His playbook is so bad that even Ask Madden function isn't that bad

exactly that, and long throws over the middle get tip drilled and intercepted for td's. lets see some rainbows downn the sidelines and isolate corners
just another strategy in throwing the deep ball down field....u keep the safety(s) honest in their deep zone and make 'em respect the fact that sooner or later you may beat them with the deep ball which should limit the amount of defenders in the box for Gore...

DITTO!

Haven't seen it in years and even though we have a crappy O-line, Alex can roll out and throw a bomb on occassion to keep the D-fense honest. But, nooooo...let's keep running some 3-outs!

actually the 3 and outs haven't been as bad now that Smith is the QB
I would be glad to see a couple deep shots down the field.

I totally agree. Took an imaginative mind to come up with that. Who did GM steal it from?
