You need 3 step drop type passes with this O line cause they cant keep the blockers in check for more than 2 seconds maybe 3 max. You cant call 5-7 step type passes with that O line...im sorry it will not work and Ben will get killed back there...I think Ben has did well today withn what he has...anybody else agree??????
Oh I agree for sure.
We all know the OL sucks. That's a given. The coaches are not gameplanning for that though (it seems). There's not a lot that can be done with the offense right now. Can't sign any big name free agents, draft is (obviously) already over...yada, yada, yada. Best we can hope for is simplification of the game. And it doesn't seem they've even tried that yet.
Gonna be a long year for sure...but hopefully a lot of lessons will be learned from it.
