Are we again saying that Matt didn't have enough weapons at his disposal?
This year you had all of your big guns healthy...all year for the most part. That's kind of rare for teams.
I'm not saying Matt didn't have enough weapons, I'm saying we didn't get them all on the field often enough. Same thing with that hurry up offense thing we did... at the end of the half, we put several receiving options on the field, we went with an uptempo pace. Matt was successful.
At the end of the game, we didn't put as many receivers on the field... even though Posey did get on the field. & we huddled up afer every play (not a traditional huddle, but the time savings were nil).. we successfully got down the field & scored, but for what we needed to do, not really what I'd call success.
Matt doesn't have a strong arm, he's not going to extend plays. For him to be successful, you have to spread the field, that means getting as many receiving options into the pattern as possible.
IMO, we need to learn how to run out of 3 WR sets, with KDub's blocking prowess, that shouldn't be too much of a stretch. If the OL can improve their blocking scheme, where they don't need so much help, that should help Matt. Run a hurried tempo from time to time with regularity, that should help Matt.
The sets we're running out of aren't conducive to Matt's strentghs.
