Thanks for the video - awesome. Here is what I saw that was different in this game:
1. More time in the pocket - hopefully this is the OL getting better and can be repeated - but it was also a function of poor Bills DL.
2. LOOKING OFF the defense - Alex did a MUCH better job of eye discipline - keeping his head turned slightly away from where he ultimately threw the ball. Ironically, that is a function of #1 above, because without pressure a QB is less urgently looking immediately to make his throw.
3. Receivers getting separation - In several previous posts I have noted (complained) that our offense doesn't seem to be able to generate that wide open receiver as often as other offenses do - which could be part receiver's lack of ability to separate and part scheme. In this game, there were many times receivers created great separation. I hope this was G-Ro scheme developing rather than poor Bills D.
This is the kind of game that an offense can use to build confidence to take more shots - even against better defenses in the future. Hope this is a big step forward.
OH, and Kap deserves some credit here - his insertion may have added a little bit of pressure on ASmith - even Smith's running was better! LOL
