QBs' throw off target ALL THE TIME. Even Brees does.
The difference between them and Alex? Their Receivers make them look like Gods.
The issue is if Tree WERE prepared like an NFL QB, he would understand his routes. Is their any question that he doesn't?
Smith has to prepare and know EVERYBODYS routes. He OBVIOUSLY does.
So let's not give Passes to unprepared Players and blame it all on the QB. If Smith throws stupid picks I will say something about it and it WILL be his fault. My MO has never waivered. I was the best TEAM that we can get. This is all aspects of the team. Not just the QB and the RB.
I don't blame Gore for drops because quite frankly he posts solid R&R stats every year. Some Passes have come in like bullets and Backs WILL have a hard time adjusting to that. They should still work on it but it's not as big as a Receiver who is not prepared enough to know that not every Pass is going to be a thing of beauty. Reaction has to be second nature. And when you do not play in the Preseason, it's GOING TO affect your chemistry with the QB. So YOU have to do something about that. Not the QB.
My Coaches NEVER expected my QB to adapt to me. I was supposed to adapt to him and if I didn't then I didn't get as many snaps as I would like. This is the NFL right? Not the WRL?
Does anyone besides me see the irony of expecting the QB to adapt HIS game to one Receiver? Doesn't that have consequences regarding the OTHER Receivers? I know I'm not the only person that knows this. You can spin this to favor your myopic argument all you want but the simple fact is that all the other Receivers on this team understand that they have to put in the work.
Smith made it all the way through College without one complaint from his Receivers.
Now you want HIM to adjust his game so that Tree doesn't have to be prepared. Silly me I thought that in the NFL in order to get ahead you HAD to be prepared.
