I'm saying that a much higher percentage of throws were "off" to Jacoby than to other people. That's what I saw and have seen for years... not just last year. ALL of the blame for that can't go on Matt especially if it really is a higher percentage of those bad targets going to Jacoby.
Once I get a free moment, I'll see if I can find target vs. catch statistics to verify.
But I believe that's why Jacoby never got the number of targets we would have expected when he subbed for AJ. Matt didn't trust him to be where he was supposed to be.
Remember the Raiders game we lost at home? Jacoby caught 1 of 11 passes that day.
