But yeah, no other weapons + rookie inexperience falling into a comfort zone with one guy = Ed Reed.
Yates had other options other than Dre. I think what happend is that Yates went check down happy in the last few games of the year. Every bootleg to the right that he ran 4-8 times a game he ended up throwing to whatever receiver was rollout out that way with him 1-3 yards away. Yates never looked downfield even though people were open at times. Then in the Ravens game he decided before the game that he and Dre were going to have a big day. You cant talk about not having other weapons because that just silly. Schaub's ppg didnt fall off the face of the earth when dre went out and Im sure Matt wasnt catching any passes.
