dont get me wrong, i'd love to see yates turn it on, but i havent seen any progression at all. if anything i think he's regressed, and lost the mental acumen that made him special.
(in bold) ooooh you said a dirty word....
I am curious to know how many deep balls Brady threw in this offense. I don't recall too many deep when the Texans played them. I think O'Brien's scheme is more about precision rather than arm strength.
hitting the seem, wheel and under routes, ton of screens then over the top for a big gain when the safeties creep up. At least that is what I recalled.
I think Yates arm would be fine in that kind of system, but who knows...
