We still dont make those perfect NFL throws, to covered guys where only our man can get it. We have superior athletes to oppositions DB's. VD, Crabs AND Moss still has something left. But in the Red Zone we dont put up a back shoulder to Moss, or at least properly. And since AZ i thought we would see that great play design of the quick bullet to Crabs off the LOS for a TD, but that never showed up again.
Our offensive coaching and play calling is bi polar, but without rhyme or reason, and even our running game has dropeed off, i have faith we can re invent our run game at any given time and pick up good yards, but we cant win all our games against great opponents without an aerial assault that stresses the D.
I hope we dont have to wait much longer because time is running out, we have the talent, neither QB is really all that great, but if we are going to do more of the same put the QB who is an expert at the status quo back in there, or else assault teams like the bears game with CK's arm and accuracy.
Kaep has made a ton of those throws. The one to Kyle Williams against the Bears? The one to Delanie Walker for the probable win in St. Luis? The 50 yard pass to Moss? None of those guys had more than a step on the DB. It's a huge upgrade that we can now look forward to.
Those were great throws i agree on that, but its not really the throw im talking about. Back shoulder where literally a few inches seperates the catch and the defenders out stretched hand. Where the WR is covered very well but the QB still drops it in there on a dime. Trent Dilfer always raves about these throws even though he likely never made one.
I think kaep can get to this level, but theres probably ten QB's who make these throws week in and week out, we don't call any risky plays either and our guys are coached to basically take the least risk possible and let the Defense do its thing.
FOr the record the only one i have really seen on our team this year was maybe the Alex to Crabs TD in AZ, a bullet right past a defenders hand where only crabs could get it, and it might have been the first time i have seen Alex do it. One of the passes to Crabs by Kaep where it got rifled in there before two defenders coudl converge was pretty good, but im more just talking about when a Defender is step for step, has good to great coverage and the defense still gets beat. Those are the types of plays that seem to do a lot of damage in the NFL now. We win on scheme, so when our scheme doesn't get guys open its very hard for us to win, i think Kaep can become more of the type to rely on talents and scheme though which would be great, i just dont see him doing many great things right now since that Bears game. Hope he picks it up and does great against NE. BB is gonna be gunning for him.
