Still can't believe Smith hasn't been injured!
Sorry, it may seem that I am always picking on you. But, it's just that some of your posts, like this one, make no sense at all. Timed passes? Aren't all passes timed? Roll-outs or sprint-outs? I guess you want to eliminate one side of the field for Smith to throw to. Mind you, play-action also resulted in sacks. The most obvious answer to blitzes are screens and specific running plays.
