12 vs. 11 is UNFAIR
If opposing defenses can afford to double cover both Cruz and Nicks and Bennett is now attracting a lot of attention then they must have an xtra player on the field because even our 3rd WR is having trouble getting open and when you can afford to throw in blitz packages we have to be out manned. You would think someone would take a head count. Has anyone noticed that ?
lol there's no extra player, Nicks can't run and get separation, Bennett is like 50 yards away from the first down all the time, and if Hixon can't get open that means he can't beat his coverage. In the first two downs you have Bradshaw running around in the backfield which sets us up for third and long, thus it's not difficult to blitz.
They're not doubling Nicks anymore, since he can't win his 1 on 1 matchup. They can basically afford to rush 5 on our line, and even if we had minimum protection (5 eligible receivers going out), they really only need to double Cruz since the rest can't get open.
