I did say it probably wasn't going to matter anyway.
Yeah I don’t agree with that unless you want him to throw it without setting his feet. And I don’t given the route concept
Not saying I necessarily agree with everything but I just love reading your posts.
Play was designed to beat that safety, but either way we both agree the throw was the main reason it didn't work. Why the play call if he's not healthy ?
He must be hitting them in game prep during the week in practice. I guess.
But these straight vertical double moves require a legit arm. Not an 80 percenter or whatever.
Anybody else cringed when watching that play live and seeing Hughes diving at Tannehill’s feet? It’s beyond me how this is not a penalty.
Pocket Presence,Clutch,Risking it all.
Tunsil threw him into it.
DVP got some of the cleanest hands I've ever seen.
People get dumber reading this stuff. What could he not have done there? Thrown a bad pick. Break down completed.
And those deep ball INTs don’t take you out of a game like they used to back in the day. Today they are basically a punt. Agree it’s better odds than 3 and out from own 28 all the time.
Speaking of the play Carroo made, how is it that he didn’t get any targets last week? Seems Butler jumped ahead of him on the depth chart. No other receiver we have can Moss someone like that. That’s not a fluke - he’s a big guy that’s showing he can make contested catches. He must be the worst practice player or fall asleep in meetings. I don’t get it when a street FA with an unimpressive career walks in and beats you out after you make a play like that.
All Gase, i can't figure him out
The deep shots are quite limited by the severe lack of quality pass blocking. If Larsen is on the field I'm not blaming Gase regarding deep shots because this guys either whiffs or gets shoved back into the QB's face. There is only time to throw the ball away if you're lucky.
Deep shots are always possible if you are willing to take the chance and make a quick decision. Poor blocking isn't an excuse. You need to at least throw it up deep 5 times a game with current rules. Especially if its 3rd and long.
Blocking didn't effect this play because Ryan made a quick decision and heaved it up.
There are bunch more like this were the ball is out in 2 seconds deep. Just have to commit.
Looks like Ryan is 7 of 25 on the year for passes thrown over 21 yards. 6 of them went for TD's. Only throwing a bit more than 3 per game. Need to try more with the TD results that we are getting from those plays. 4 interception on the deep passes but none really hurt us. Patriots scored after deep interception but they were already ahead 24-0 at the time. Buffalo took the deep interception and drove for lead with TD. But Ryan got it back the next series. The other 2 essentially acted as punts.
