We got get to an athletic move tight end more involved in the offense next year (ie Hannah), and finally Garrett has to move on from his Ogletree love affair and bring in/develop non intellectually challenged WRs who can play multiple WR positions and who consistently knows his hot reads.
This is correct. Miles catching slants from the slot is a good high percentage way to beat a blitz. Throwing go routes off of the back foot is a very low percentage way to try to win. The Redskins had the equivalent of Danny MrCray's at safety and we did nothing to attack them.
