Since the fullback typically dictates the direction of a run, most linebackers shed the FB, rendering him open if the play-action is deceptive enough.
Yeah, that was a few weeks ago, Carolina jumped all over the attempted screen pass to Miller. It just continues a pattern of this team beating a dead horse.
This. Teams realize Miller is the number three option in this offense. I do believe Kaep needs to give his other receivers the chance to make a play. Other receivers not named Kyle Williams that is. The Vance McDonalds, the Baldwins, etc. Not just in this game. And I don't want to hear about McDonald's one dropped pass. That was HUGE and definitely would've effected the outcome of the game, however as a QB, Kaep has to learn he has to continue to go to those guys.
Will we get better? Probably so as our weapons come back. However at this stage of his career, Kaep is a lot more dependent on his receivers, protection, and the OC than we would like. Which means we are going to have to endure some serious growing pains while this team is in the midst of trying to win a Super Bowl.
At this point, get Williams involved. IDC. Get Baldwin involved. Get Hunter or James involved. Spread it out with 4 WR sets. It cannot be that hard to draw up 2-3 plays a game for EACH secondary WR or RB . IF they spread to ball out to each guy , RoBaugh would see how much the passing attack would open up. Magically, teams would be forced to account for ALL eligible Receivers.
Kaep has been doo doo, but Roman has been dog s***.
We need to make him spend some shower time with coach Sandusky.
I hope he gets his act together because if not, we might not even get into the playoffs. That would be a shame considering we are the most talented team in the NFL.
