there's a balance. i doubt he'd run after his 1st read he's demonstrated willingness to try to find someone since day 1. if he has the time.
to me he isn't confused he just needs time like any other qb.
when he gets the play on time can make his adjustments on time and gets more than 2 seconds with pressure right up the middle he's special.
more of aggressiveness against the good teams will show the difference.
the coaching staff is aggressive and goes for it against bad teams
they need to do the same thing against good teams.
we go for it twice against the redskins we had been going for it on 4th down every other game just for the hell of it
get to the panthers on 4th and goal from the 2 and we kick a field goal.
those things send messages.
also panther game we didn't do anything.
we didn't run when we could have
and we didn't send out routes that would be successful.
7 step drops against their pressure makes any qb look like he doesn't know what he's doing.
tom brady looked like he didn't know what he was doing in the 1st half until they changed the plan and started throwing quick routes and started using the tight end like we should have.
miami who's offensive line isn't as good as ours constantly ran with power against the panthers AND when they passed had at least 3 wr options with mike wallace stretching the field threw screens and everything else to keep them off balance.
all things we could have and should have done as well.
we take the aggressiveness of this last game and apply it to the entire season we're probably looking at a 10-1 record right now.
but that's the past.
now we need to be consistent.
power run, don't abandon the run. run real routes and no more miller going out period. too many weapons to have him being a target of any kind.
kap proves time and time again, when you give him responsibility he handles it. when you make the offense complex don't expect him to be able to make the right reads and calls in the 5 seconds he has before the play is snapped give him time and we see the results.
give him routes with maximum options
and he'll grow leaps and bounds
