And it goes unnoticed because he isn't sacked, but he doesn't have that extra second or two to survey the field, and he can't step up into the pocket as in years past. DLP isn't getting beat, but he is getting pushed back further than our centers have in years past.

I'd be curious to see if his time in the pocket has been reduced this season.

I think a lot of people are over rated the ball placement thing a lot here. That ball is most times where it's supposed to be. Could it be a few inches further forward yes.... But does it matter if it was on time probably not.

On the 9 three feet is the difference between jump ball for a defender or Stills having an open field in stride after the catch.

Re: Kenny Stills

Morgan had the same type of year Stills had this year.. With majority of his catches being big plays and I think his young legs beat Meachem. I only hope Toon gets his stuff together like Stills.

Re: Kenny Stills

He's getting some notice.

"Stills has the skill-set to wreck a gameplan. Expect Brees to take at least one shot -- and likely more."
