The center snaps (hopefully on target) (not always vs he Bills)
The qb catches ( hopefully at his mid section)
The oline blocks ( hopefully keeps the Dline and blitzers off)
The receivers run patterns (get open if they can)
The qb reads the Defense ( less than 4 seconds?)
The qb throws the ball to the reciever (if he can)
The receiver catches the ball (if they can)
If anything breaks down - it is probably a sack, an INT, an Incomplete
Unless you see the tape, know the play, we can only take an educated guess who is at fault
If everyone does there job we get a reception - we can see a great throw, we can see a great catch. Some throws are more difficult, Some Defenses make great plays. What counts most is to do it correctly in the clutch. TB usually does it in the clutch. When he doesn't do it there are a whole lot of other players who contibute to that . just like if he does it.
So when some get on TB - please go back and grade play by play - and when they win - they get the benifit of the doubt - when they lose they don't.
All of the teams we face in the first 6 games have a good Dline. Maybe only Pitts and Carolna in the whole season don't.
This year, to start - TB is not going to have the numbers. until his guys get up to speed. For example, if KT had caught the balls he could have. TB's rating goes to 90+ and the game is over early. ( along with the fumbles-) Instead of 23 points we get 32- 38 like last year.
I am not going to throw kt under the bus. He made some mental mistakes - if he is coachable, he has the ability and he will do well. I love rooting for the upsides of all of them
In reverse - our D looks like it is progressing , and i am going to root for that.
