How are we so certain that McDonald, James, and Baldwin are playmakers? Are we basing this on their physical attributes only? They haven't proven themselves to be play makers. Baldwin is big, yes. So was J.J. Stokes. McDonald is a rookie. James has displayed a mixed bag of results when he's on the field. Not to mention his inability to pass block makes the offense a LOT more predictable when he enters the game. They know we're not gonna leave him back there to protect Colin. The D is gonna be looking for the screen the moment they see him in the huddle.
All this said, aside from the Colts game, I really don't see that Roman has destroyed this offense in anyway. We went to the Super Bowl last year and we're currently 4-2. Are you saying that our offense, as it is right now, is so talented that it can score 30+ in spite of extremely poor play calling?
THATS THE WHOLE POINT!
We don't know because either A) the coaches arent planning for them or B) Kaep isnt throwing to them.
Also McDonald and Baldwin made plays in the preseason. McDonald was leaping over LBs and truckin' through DB's. Baldwin had a couple of catches and let's get real I'm sure he can use his physical presence to make some catches when he's in single coverage which he often is.
James more than proved his ability to make plays after Hunter went out.
This offense scored 30+ against GB so clearly it's able to put the point up.
