    Flacco as attempted the most passes over 20 yards in the nfl



    @PFF: 17.7% of the passes Joe Flacco has attempted have gone over 20 yards in the air. The largest % of any QB in the league.

    do those count the overthrows that are supposed to go 10 yards and go 20?

    Still think they should shorten the WR routes.

    And what is his completion rate for those passes?

    edit: looks like you answered my question. Joe Namath made the Hall of Fame throwing the ball like that. He also ended up with more picks that TDs thrown.

    This is why I've always been a great fan of the dink and dunk offense.

    This goes back to what I've been saying. It's great to take your shots, but I think they've gone overboard. And too often they force it downfield to a receiver who's covered, sometimes by two or even three guys. In that scenario, SOMEONE has GOT to be open underneath. Take the short gain. It'll probably be a 1st down anyway if they get any kind of YAC.

    and its hard to do it when the play action is not working because we cant run the ball

    I didn't see that as much with Caldwell calling the plays. For the first time this year, I didn't have a problem with the play selection when it came to passing.

    Cameron kept trying to force the big plays. He kept trying to run the Coryell backwards. That might work if you have a dominant offensive line, but we haven't exactly been close to that this year.

    We also never seemed to run routes that had a chance of getting YAC. We were still running the old Mason bread-and-butter plays. Mason was a heck of a receiver, but he rarely went further down the field from where he caught the ball. We saw what happened with Smith catching a short crossing route. The fact he was already moving at a good rate of speed when he caught the ball made it more difficult for the defender to get a quick tackle.

    I like the WCO but with a power run element to it, or even a zone running scheme that Houston run. The Patriots have a great power run scheme that they go to a lot to set up the pass, the 49ers do it well too, but I notice they like to take their deep shots a bit more with Kaepernick at QB.

    @PFF: @jmanasso Would be wrong of us to speculate. Does have 11 touchdowns going deep, but 37.2% comp.% which isn't great for building drives

    At one point in the season we "technically" had the most explosive offense in the league statiscally (most completions over 20 yds), I think we're still in the Top 10.
