    Cavanaugh was losing his mind on the air earlier over these stats.

    So not only are we running Zeke up the middle into a pile of men every running play, but we are also getting the worst production out of RBs when we throw them the ball as well?

    Yikes, Kellen (and Philbin).

    Zeke looks so uncomfortable anytime the ball is thrown his way. The number on Pollard is actually more surprising to me.

    Dak looks down field
    Check down to Zeke in the flat
    bobble ball, drops
    repeat.

    One thing I notice with Dak is that when that flat read isn't his first read, he throws it late a lot. It doesn't give the HB / WR the best oppurtunity to do anything with it.

    You will not confuse this current QB to RB in passing to Roger and TD screen pass that killed D’s.

    I ran it for the last 3 years and lowered the plays to 200...Zeke was still dead last.

    It’s usually last second desperation dump off.Not schemed to rb’s in space.

    One less thing for the defense to worry about.

    Strange from a few years ago when we would screen to Elliot and he would take off for big yards. Remember the Steelers game, 80 yard screen pass.

    Oh yes.I love the screen game if called at the proper time.Unfortunately, our wr’s and te’s don’t block it very well.

    He needs to spend time watching Brady check down to backs. He gets it to them quick and they actually have time to make a play.

    Brady has had a pretty good career doing that often.RB’s are always big part of his passing game.

    And not an accurate pass. Dak has very little touch and it shows the most in his passes to the RB's - If Zeke does not get the pass in stride very little is going to come from it.

    Yeah and now Moore keeps calling WR screens. No more misdirection. Nothing. Very strange. These are mostly the same players from a few years ago. Moore should be keeping the plays that was working and adding to it. Never really saw the crossing route Dak hit Lamb with to beat the pats. The TE was open on that play also..

    Brady checked down to the RB very quickly. Dak stares down the receivers to long waiting them to come open. I think these plays are to long developing. He has to wait for them to make the break to get open. The safeties can read his eyes.. these routes should he broken off 10 yards shorter..

    Disagree.

    I cringe at other qbs throwing to rbs, not generally dak.

    Misdirection kills our D every time.Maybe our O should try it along w/ motion once in a while.
