I understand your point, but this is not true. I know because I've watched the game that McDonald was used both deep and as outlet in the Car game. Kaep didn't go to McDonald on one critical play late in the game that I remember. McDonald was open as an outlet about 5 yds out. Had Kaep went to McDonald, he would be open enough to get the extra 2 for the 1st down. Kaep overthrown Boldin on that play instead.
that might very well be true. the fact you can pinpoint when it happened, because they don't happen often. that's the problem. due to the way the scheme is there is pretty much no margin for error. we can go through a game and say ok this play here. and that play there. but those options only appear in those instances and if he doesn't hit them then it costs us because we don't repeat them. that's the problem. its not too much for us to expect him to hit on these check downs and other targets however if there's only 1 opportunity per game for these types of plays.. that's unrealistic to think he will be money on every single one.
does it mean he can't do better, yes he can do WAY BETTER but he has to have these options continuous. that's my point
these things have to repeat and repeat and repeat so that we can't just go ok on this one play in this position he missed this, and then neglect that, that opportunity and play probably wasn't called again.
he has a better chance of completing these plays if he sees it 10 times where the option is there as opposed to 1 or 2 times...
like the macdonald play. it was 1 shot, 1 shot for the game essentially, no times before or after that. and if he doesn't get that 1 shot then all is lost.. .
that is not how a passing game should operate. if macdonald beat the lb once why wouldn't he be able to beat him again? why wouldn't they go back to something
that's the huge problem. you have something, he missed the opportunity like all qb's do, and then you don't go to it ever again to try and get something that was open and this time connect it.. if he misses once then that's it for the entire play type.. and that's ridiculous.
how many times have we seen teams or the elite qb's or even the ones that they say are way better than kap miss a deep pass or a play that was open
AND THEN proceed to go back to it again because it works it just wasn't executed. its as if it doesn't work the 1 time due to execution then they just cross it out...
do it again and this time HIT on the play.. give the team another shot to convert it....
