You bring up the panthers game and somehow fail to remember that the biggest NINER injury that day happened on a check down (tukuafu). I don't even remember the last time Kap scrambled for a loss but somehow you noticed this a lot in the panthers game??? What are you on about? Kap has been hitting check downs with more regularity. Not sure how you're not seeing it.
-_-...I watch the games but an article I read just reinforced my thoughts on why we don't do too many screens. Im referring to his receivers out of the backfield when I say check down, hence why I said running backs. he checks to his FB, not his runningbacks, that's why bruce miller was the third leading receiver. And yes, when he gets beat to the edge, he runs outta bounds, I understand that its to avoid contact. He did it in Carolina, Green Bay, and in week 2 in Seattle instead of throwing the ball way, and lost like 2yds. I didn't say he does it a lot, but he does do it 2 or 3 times in one game. He's been doing that since last year. But the point was more about lacking touch, not about hitting checkdowns. That pick he threw against GB was a result of lack of touch.
