The D-line is equally as bad with the exception of Joseph and Tuck whom occassionally show penetration and or ability to shed and dive into tackles..
This team is loosing terribly in the trenches which is puzzling because we drafted Pugh #1, sacrificed on our roster to keep depth on the D-line, had Baas back....Looks to me that Snee is getting manhandled, Baas is doing alot of standing around, and Boothe is too slow...Beatty and Pugh have been great
Due to Kevin Gilbride, I will never like the phrase "shotgun draw", ever.
I've been wondering about comments made about Eli not being able to play or be effective in a short passing game (my words). It's been mentioned several times now by different members. I've always thought a pass was a pass, long, short, or whatever. Obviously that's over simplistic, but if that is really possible, the red zone is nothing if it's not "short": in terms of geography. So, if it is a reality that Eli isn't a good short yardage passer, doesn't that include the red zone?.
Before anyone gets wound up, it's just a question. I recognize there are other issues with the Oline and running backs. But, again, if there is any validity to that suggestion could the play calling take that into account?
