On the Clock
You are up sir
This is true. The 5000 yard passing seasons that QB's had last year were just insane. The problem with our offense is that our WR's base alot of what they do on what the defense is giving them, so alot of our routes are timing routes and options where the QB and WR have to see the same thing. But Nicks was banged up all year, and like you said, DB's were being flat out more physical with our wides and couldn't get open.
After the first Redskins game, I don't even think it was all on Eli, but he looked bad. Defenses started giving him complex looks and basically figure out our offense. The wides just weren't getting open and Eli and the wides were having a tough time making reads. Then you have the worst playcaller of all time in Gilbride and you have these awful offensive showings.
What you are saying definitely makes sense though. The physicality and the different looks just killed our offense.
I still think almost every QB took a step back because they lessened the no DB touching rules.
There's still ****** PI calls but you can be more physical than last year for sure. Look about everyone took a step back that was electric last year.
