For the record I've never said he doesn't feel comfortable with a short passing game, you said that. I'm simply asking a question about the possibility that Eli might have a preference.

This is the thing. Players have strengths and flaws. The coaches and coordinators need to recognize and address those issues. They need to nurture those strengths in their players and help them improve the weaknesses. If Eli has an issue with the short pass then that needs to be addressed and it is a failure on the coaching for not addressing it sooner because it has been an issue for years as has his poor decision making at times. Don’t get me wrong, we have had awesome success over the past five years and I am grateful for that but it still doesn’t mean that we rest on our laurels and don’t try to improve. This season there seemed to be a lack of sense of urgency that really hurt and the coaches needed to address that.
Enigma as usual reese will look for studs early and then go need mid round. SO I would say either of us could be right. Beatty was a second rounder - not so fair to compare him to the late round picks of brewer and mosely and mccants in terms of potential. Reese loves all his picks - i know he called robinson jpp of tight ends but that doesn't mean he is. We will soon see - i think bennett is still a big fa re-sign.
