Parcells late 80's teams all had guys who averaged 18 - 20 yards per catch. Usually two or three of them each year, although none of them had outstanding individual totals - usually for 200 - 500 yards per season each. But he threw the ball long, he didn't dink and dunk. As Simms said one day while announcing a Dallas game - Bill told him that if he was going to throw, throw the ball down the field. He said he didn't need Phil to throw it 3 yards, if he wanted 3 yards he'd simply run it. Bill's teams were consistently among the top 10 in yards per attempt in the late 80's.
Last year we were 17th in YPA, two years ago we were 19th. That's NOT how Bill wants to play, and it's not how he's played elsewhere. IMO we need a receiver or two to show that they can make plays down the field in order for this offense to work.
