The problem is when you abandon the run, the defense no longer bites on the play action and when all the down-field receivers are covered, Freeman and the Bucs' offense have a very weak short passing game....and when you have a very weak short passing game it is almost impossible to sustain drives....and when you can't sustain drives, you are giving Manning the ball with great field position....and when you give a Manning the ball with great field position....well, we all know what happens.
   Well said, sir!

    Tiquan inexplicably had a not-so-good game. No question he has looked more comfortable in downfield passing game than the short slot stuff. Odd thing is up to this game he seemed OK even in the short game.

Also, after watching that Denver game, I think the receiver depth needs to be adressed. Underwood has done a solid job so far but we need a true slot receiver. God forbid Williams or Jackson goes down cause if it does, we're screwed.


That's why I don't understand why they dumped Parker. Sure the guy sucked this year as a returner but he was money all last season as a slot receiver. He found a way to get open and never dropped passes.

When does falling behind help?

Exactly.   Has there ever been a game in NFL history when falling behind didn't hurt the offensive game plan?   The statement is redundant.
