Levi & Marcus, the article I would love to see from you guys write is one that is talking about Matt Flynn
, Tyler Wilson
and/or Terrelle Pryor
working out with the wide receivers and tight ends for a week or two during the next six weeks before training camp. So far our QBs have been average at best during the OTAs & minicamp. The best way to improve that is working out with the guys you will be throwing to.
We always hear about the Mannings, Rodgers & Bradys of the league working out in the offseason with their receivers. Well, whoever is going to step up and is going to organize a week or two of passing drills with his WRs & TEs. Timing means everything and although Palmer threw for over 4,000 yards last year, many times his WRs weren't in practice the whole week, then timing was off during the game.
Additionally, Moore, Streater & Criner had a bad case of the drops last year. We as fans wanted to blame Carson Palmer
. I, like many of you, played both high school & college ball and every coach I ever had said the same thing, if you touch it, you catch it - if you get your hands on it, its catchable. Of course we know that doesn't always apply, but I watched every game last year and many of the drops were catchable and it wasn't the QB's fault. How do we fix this, by these guys getting together over the next six weeks for a week or two and doing passing drills. Get the timing down, get used to each other. That's the above & beyond that improves teams.
So that's the article I hope you guys get a chance to write because one or all of the QBs stepped up and got their receivers to sacrifice another week or two of time to improve. If it's written, then it means it happened.
