So basically he will do the same assignment that Grant is doing right now?He doesn't have to catch actual passes, he just has to drag the safety deep. The field opens up without that safety. Gesicki and Parker can both run to those opened areas.
If he catches one... great! If he drops it, he still has to be covered the next time he beats you.
That's not Grant's fault though.Well... I'm not sure that Grant is actually doing that job though. The passes he does catch are all short routes.
Maybe Callaway will be better at this.
Agreed... Chan wants Tua to get the ball out quickly... but then again... I am not convinced that such a short receiver is your best bet on a go route. They get swallowed up too easily.That's not Grant's fault though.
I don't think he is anything special as a receiver, and if he's your #2, that's an issue, but the fact that he isn't running deep routes over the top, isn't his option. He runs the plays called.
Perhaps that changes this week, and Chan opens it up.
When we are leading, which has been the case a lot, I get the impression Flo isn't on board with taking chances, and running plays that take 4+ seconds to develop.
If Tua could have delivered that deep ball to Grant at the 2-3 yard line, we be discussing a different narrative right now.Been watching the game?
Tua's been hooking up with Grant.
No reason to cut him by tomorrow.
Meanwhile we have 13 rookies on our roster!
Step by step the O will get more "open" but I'm also pretty confident Flo will keep the focus on team ballIf Tua could have delivered that deep ball to Grant at the 2-3 yard line, we be discussing a different narrative right now.
Earlier in the week, I suggested that Flores/Gailey might take the training wheels off this week. (and I was roundly disagreed with) But I still think that this is a solid possibility. Those last four games should require a bit more from our offense than we've been getting, and certainly more than we've been showing.
I still think this game looks like the spot to try some longer plays and deeper passes... Waiting until the Jets game won't tell us much;
Actually Wallace was pretty consistent with TD’s and receptions throughout his career regardless of who the QB was. He just didn’t have the yards here (always 200 or so short). Tells me he was more then a deep threat in Miami.Wallace was a deep threat with shaky hands here. like it nor not
