Adrian, Brees had the ball gone within 2-3 seconds, virtually the entire game. Midway thru the 3rd qtr, he had completed passes to 11 (ELEVEN) different receivers. Kap has trouble going thru a progression and his peripheral vision must be half of most folks. When he looks long, he can't see short...and vice versa. Once again after a tiny handful of 1-3 steppers, most successful, roman reverted to the 20+ yd passes, which frankly, kap cannot throw with anywhere close to NFL accuracy. Kap is basically wildly inaccurate, can't throw to where a receiver is , instead throwing to where he was. One exception was the string of 6 passes in mid game with several being over the opposite shoulder. Aside from those, roman just reverted to his one receiver , go long passes, most of which ended up with kap getting sacked, hit, or run out of bounds. Sad, just really really sad. Still and all, we were actually in a game with an elite team and somehow we came close...way closer than last 3 loses. I can take that, altho roman was pukey. Roman has now called the O against the last 4 elites for losses. At least we finally were in one loss. Altho in the end, JH once again got outcoached near end of game..
that's the problem he doesn't give him a chance.
on a few sacks he's getting touched after his drop and you see down the field and there's "nothing" to quote aikman.
he can go through reads he has to have time and he has to have multiple options.
they finally sent gore out of the backfield today and he hit him more than a few times didn't he?
brees has the ball gone, depending on the route he knows who should be open.
if colin is waiting for 1 of 2 options then yes it looks like he can't see half the field, is it out of the realm of possibility that roman is telling him who the plays should go to?
i think they're taking options out of his hands for their own arrogant reasons.
"i designed this to do this and this is what we're doing"
"here, here, here, or here"
last season they didn't have time to install their own special plays so we kept with the same things alex was doing and then added a pistol option. but the offense was the same as when alex had it with multiple options and kap made multiple reads didn't he? yes he did.
and for some reason an offense that was good enough to carry the team they changed it totally... out of arrogance.
