I have faith in Jake. He can step in for AB if necessary and run the "O", but if Deuce is worse and can't play we're screwed. Keaton and Fenderson may have heart but we're in trouble if we have to rely on them again for our running game.

a good reason that we dont spread it out as much as we should:

the line has played horribly lately, brooks has almost no time to find open recievers and he doesnt step up in the pocket or pull it down and run. both of these things would open up holes in the D for our recievers to make plays

i agree with that, we do need to spread the ball more, especially to the TE\'s, does anyone know how many catches the TE\'s had against TB?

pakowitz 12-03-2002 02:47 PM

ill tell you how many.

ZERO. we completed 10 passes in the game, zero to a TE

J. Horn 5 106 1 52
J. Reed 3 43 1 29
D. Stallworth 1 9 0 9

I\'ve been scratching my head about Donte. My only guess about his not getting the ball as much as I personally think he should is that maybe his route running just isn\'t that good yet. What the heck do I know tho. Brooks has been gettin more pressure lately too and I suppose that could have something to do with it. I wish like heck that somebody could teach Boo to block. He\'s a far better receiver than Sloan.

Well Dante is probably the 3rd receiver Brooks is looking for and by that time Brooks is either sacked, given a safety, or thrown the ball away. Only time Dante will see the ball is when they have more than 2 recievers on the field and Dante is designed to get the ball. But only 10 completetions on Sunday, how did we win!
