    Offenses without fleet-footed wideouts get stuck in mud

    http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/10361661/1
    There are many teams that don't have receivers who threaten down the field. What that does is make defending those offenses a lot easier.

    "You don't have to worry about guys running by you, so you can play eight-man fronts and not be forced to double the outside receivers," an NFC defensive coordinator said. "It makes it easier to play teams without the good receivers. When you play a guy like Moss or Chad Johnson, you can't be as willing to commit just one guy to them. That makes it tougher to defend the run."

    Kansas City (24th), Minnesota (25th), Atlanta (tied 27th), San Diego (tied 27th), Tennessee (30th) and San Francisco (31st) have no real vertical threats. The Jacksonville Jaguars, who somehow are 14th in passing, don't either...

    "If your receivers can't win, your passing game can't click," the NFC coach said. "That's the golden rule. And if they don't respect the passing game, it will make it a lot tougher to run."

    Hopefully one of our young receivers becomes a vertical threat soon :-

    For a minute a was thinking "well, hey, we have Williamson he's fast enough to be considered a deep threat", but then I realized in order to be a threat you have to be able to catch the ball.

    makes you wonder what it would have been like to get randy back from the raiders before the draft... think that would've helped tjack's development much? cough* Culpepper*cough

    i'm not sooo sure that it's all in the WR's.

    Tjack never had the time to let a down the field play develop.
    so far what i see is that Twill/Wade are our deep threats.. these 2 whould be able to acomplish some things, and who knows. maybe it's Holcomb's chance to show that they can catch if the ball is there.

    maybe it'll be something Tjack can learn while watching happen.

    maybe out Oline can give the QB a few extra seconds to let those deep plays develop.

    we'll see on sunday..

    We have T-Will, and Aundrae Allison, both can jet, the thing is our offense isn't a verticle one. It's a west coast, sure we take some shots downfield, but the playcalling has been so bland. We need to mix it up, instead of running on first down everytime, a play-action would be nice. Have to slow that rush with screens, and draws, then take a verticle shot.
