Realistically, I think our entire receiver corps is our weakest point. Hoping Reid and Dorsey can take BIG steps to correct that next year.
Im not a fan of Marqise Lee. He has been hurt for a lot of this season. And I have seen him drop a lot of passes. While watching a USC game (ive only seen maybe 2 this year), he dropped a pass in the endzone and the announcer says "well thats what you get with Marqise Lee, he makes the great catches, but he drops a lot of passes too." I want someone more consistent.
Id love to get Mike Evans...not sure if he would last that long though - trading up to 14 or 15 to get him though would be worth it, IMHO...
Over the past handful of games the number of downfield passes have increased. Alex was pretty off on the first few but over the last couple of games IMO he got better. Against the Bills there was that PERFECTLY thrown ball to Mccluster. Against Denver there was that throw to Avery not perfect but Avery wasn't WIDE OPEN Alex put the ball where it needed to be. There was anther to Bowe that drew a flag that Bowe could have possibly made a catch on but Bowe quit when the contact was made wanting the flag so we will never really no. Right now I don't see any reason for Reid to have much faith in going down field much. They can't refuse to try but I don't see any reason for that part of the offense to become bigger. We just don't have the guys to pull it off right now.
I don't know why we went away from the very successfully slant routes. Also the only time we really tried to get the ball to dmc was on deep sideline routes were you need height also..we just have the right personel on o that's for sure.
