    Can't wait to see year 2 of this offense. We've got some playmakers for sure just need to get them the ball on the move.

    Re: Pretty Good Read

    I love the fact that despite having the second lowest average in 20 years in the passing game, we still made it to a bowl game and won it.
    What happens when the passing game finally breaks out this year?!!

    Re: Pretty Good Read

    Honestly I think we may see those average yards per reception stay close to the same. I think the short pass is where we want to be. Put it in the receivers hands and let him make a play. That seems to be how Herman operates. Of course, that number should increase but I don't see us being a huge play team unless it is because a receiver makes a play.

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Pretty Good Read

    short passes are great and can move you down the field but you still have to be able to stretch the field

    Exactly. If you dink and dunk all day long all the defense has to do is play the safeties closer and the open space shrinks drastically. You have to have deep threat guys and take some shots to keep the safeties honest.

    And some times you get lucky, like at Nebby.

    Re: Pretty Good Read

    Short passes work great if you have other receivers blocking for you down field. Usually when we try the bubble screen, our guys get blown up right at the line of scrimmage because all we can do down field is flail helplessly at the corner or safety. Get your receivers blocking, and big plays will happen.
