I'm wondering if this is a catch 22, we need all 5 out in routes to try and stretch the defense since the WRs aren't consistently getting open and getting separation.  This leaves no left to help.  I would think they should have the TEs just chip on their release to help out Prince before releasing but we can't always have a TE aligned on the right.

Kyle, thanks for the article.  I've always enjoyed reading them and you seem to have a knack of talking fans back off of the ledge after each offensive struggle.  

One thing I've noticed throughout the year, but especially with the all go play you diagrammed above is that we have guys open deep but JT just doesn't seem to be able to find them.  To me it looked like both Paris and Terry were open on that play with KJ partially open.  Of all the throws that JT could have made on that play, the one he threw to Samuel was of the more difficult kind because he needed to get it out over the top of the trailing lb.  What's even more interesting is that it appears that Paris is his first read.  Did he just feel the pressure and come off it?  Paris is even with the safety at the time.

I agree and was thinking the same thing.  If we are going to be vanilla and run cover 1 all the time, let's at least put our best guy on their best guy.  They ran the same play like 7 times and we stopped it like once.  A safety and nickel back should never be asked to cover the best receiver on the opposing team.

My guess is that he is still recovering.  His injury was 5 weeks-ish after when Brown got hurt.  Last year we saw the same thing with JT, injuries take time to recover.

I think they will run and use him very similarly to how Percy Harvin was used in Florida.  What made Harvin special was that he could run between the tackles and line up in the slot.  I have a feeling we will see that same play that Harvin ran where he would motion into the back field from the slot and then run a counter that hits in the weak side B gap.

The d-line is the key to this whole thing.  If you think back to the pre-season going into 2014, we had arguably the best d-line going into the year, this was prior to Spence being kicked off the team. We don't have that kind of line right now.  Do I think that Sprinkle and Hill will be serviceable?  Sure, but we don't have a game changer up front yet and we need one.  We all knew that the misses at DT were going to surface at some point and I think this is the year.  However, as a fan there are a lot of bodies that we have no clue what they can do in game situations.  There absolutely could be those dominant type players on the interior some where on the roster.  I'm just eagerly waiting to see it and until then I will be cautiously optimistic going into the season.

I was trying as well.  The past few years there has been some random site that would stream it, but I can't remember for the life of me what the site was.  Nor can I find the forum post from last year either.

I actually think losing to NW is a possibility.  Young teams typically will play to the level of their opponent.  Meaning that in big games you could expect us to play well as they will get amped, but not as excited to play lesser opponents and you know that Pat Fitzgerald will have is boys ready to play.

I take offense at the inaccuracy of icons placed over Fort Wayne, IN.  Austin Mack is from there - going to Ohio State.  Austin Robinson is from there and is going to MSU.  Not every prospect that come out of Fort Wayne goes to ND!
