What's there to misuse Last year when Kaep came in as starter, they had already used his repertoire of his running ability. This year Kaep should be a bit more familiar and more involved in the passing game. But injuries plague our receiving core. We are seeing a young qb struggling to learn the game, yes he's still learning the game, with lesser receiving type of talent. They need a receiving group that has different type of talent combination. That should include-- speed, size, quickness, smart, young and veteran. Right now it's not complete. The passing offense is struggling because of these more than what the coaching staff is doing during the game.
but if the passing game is struggling why don't they use the best available players to help the qb out? why don't they make macdonald and davis big targets, BOTH of them. the #1 thing everyone says is the tight end is the safety net ours are used for strictly deep passes and blocking no intermediate stuff to help him if nothing else is open.
we have quick wr's not fast we have agile shifty wr's why don't we make sure that they catch the ball immediately and put them in space to get yac. they can't get separation but they can break free on slants or out routes or curls which could set db's up to be used on double moves..
we have 3 running backs 2 of which would absolutely kill in the screen game or split wide quick pass in space game. but they are never there to help the qb. which is mind blowing considering how good our wr's have to block in order to even be on the field and play.
why do they continue to use miller our fullback as a passing option? he is literally taking passes away from people who could use them such as macdonald or badlwin people who are more valuable in the passing game.
why don't they just line up and run on people..no team has stopped it we've just went away from it.
and why don't they make adjustments?
if a team practices against the read option since training camp why run it on them like we did the panthers? if a team is blitzing you why don't we just change the plays to quick drops and quick hitting passes which were open. it was the exact game plan the rams used against us @ the rams last season and they didn't adjust then. didn't toss a screen to keep them honest, didn't stop sending kap into 7 step drops or shotgun passes where the routes were 15 yards minimum.
in a 1 point game with plenty of time left COMPLETELY abandoned the run.. which would have put us in field goal range more than once since it had put is in field goal range 2 times already...
there's so much more that they could do. that's not kap. if they were actually creative we had the talent even without crabtree and manningham to do SOMETHING
everyone can see kyle williams sucks but they continue to start him. that's arrogance and being stubborn. he can't get open, cannot catch when he is can't block can't run to his side and doesn't contribute on special teams but it took them half of a season to see this... HALF A SEASON WASTED taking snaps from people who are actually still going to be on the team. does that make sense?
kap is not perfect or anywhere near it. he's being taken through the ringer via media because of his play. but that's the easy way out. we're simply not running an nfl offense passing wise going against nfl defenses. we haven't even run the type of passing offense we ran against green bay since green bay.. i could see if we kept doing that and it hadn't been working but we haven't even gone back to THAT through 8 more games.
they are ruining a young qb who has all the potential in the world being conservative for their OWN reasons. i don't buy a guy that works as hard as kap who could come in and read progressions which they praised him for, worked since 1 week after the super bowl has just totally forgotten how to do it. with all the praise they give him and say the entire playbook is open then the only conclusion is they close it themselves.
ruin the qb and the defensive efforts being stubborn if they want to.
