    Looks like we got a better wide receiver for less money. Nice job front office.

    I wasn't going to go that far. But if they fully intend to use the slot receiver as a screen option, I understand why overpaying for Landry makes no sense if Wilson is an option.

    I have to believe we are going to see a ton of those WR screens etc that we saw the last 2 years - just different guys catching them.

    I'm sure we will see a lot of screen passes. I expect there will be enough other routes opened up by those screen passes to make us a bit less dependent on them.

    I think we'll see at least one play a game where Grant will be sent deep. Because of his speed, it will take less time for the play to develop and if he isn't open, then probably our tight end will be. We would use our wide receivers on slightly deeper routes downfield and keep a RB near the QB for an escape valve. This would give Tannehill a series of prime targets available at different times as the play develops. Grant is going to cause defenses a lot of problems, especially if we occasionally use him as a running back.

    I think we are going to enjoy watching our offence this year. I'm already starting to smile.

    hence my 11-5 prediction.

    And i think starting out we are going to have a lot of check-down type options for THill as he gets reacclimated. Gase's instructions will probably be just get rid of it if the primary aint there quick. We need to limit the beatings he takes.

    Lots of possibilities! Finally, we have an O on paper that can do everything.

    With Hill at 3 a lot has to be said for KC’s playbook skewing this list a bit.

    So it looks like Landry averaged close to 4.5 yards per target on passes behind the line of scrimmage. That's about the same as a back averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

    Fake screen. Bomb the crap out of 'em baby!

    Dear OL,

    we just need another 900-1200 milliseconds!

    You can do it!

    A little more concise than my paragraphs on the subject, but YES!

    Interesting that Landry had 11 more catches on 10 more targets for the 27 fewer yards than Wilson. I saw Hill was #3 on that list as well, and was only 8 yards behind Landry on 11 fewer catches. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was because they were lining up against deeper coverage due to opposing secondaries having to respect the speed on the field, the receiving threat TE, and the game breaking RB. It seems like we have the pieces in place for that. Hopefully we can replicate the YPC in those situations as a result.

    Landry's career yards per target is 7.08... Which isnt even good for top 100(139) for his time in the league... For reference sake, Albert is 79th for the same timeframe...***I filtered for WRs with more than 80 targets during the whole timeframe***


    Albert Wilson individually, was 15th in the NFL last season in average cushion and he was #1 in average separation....

    I would like to think we won't be doing that as much, and when we do, it's for a different reason.

    You can force the defense into different positioning with that type play, but it's no good when its your bread and butter.

    When's the last time anyone on the team ran an honest to goodness 7 yard slant anyway?

    The 4.5 average I was talking about was on passes behind the line of scrimage, hitch passes/screens. If you can get that on first down and put your team in 2nd and 5 or 2nd and 6 that's not bad. think you will sdee your share of those types of passes to Wlson, Grant and Amendola.
