Dude why would you pass to anyone else when Smitty is wide open? I think we're doing exactly what we need to.

who up here thinks delhomme is too dependent upon smith in the passing game?

don't get me wrong, smith is unworldly good, but i want delhomme to spread the ball around a bit more, get muhammed, the TE's, and some others some passes.

that's just my opinion.

Denver basically had Smith single Covered all day long, I thought I would never see that again and I wouldn't Blame Jake in a million years for throwing towards Smith when he's in Single coverage that's a TD waiting to happen.

If we don't use Smitty enough, the talking heads and fans will bash the coaching staff for wasting his talents and having a conservative ball-oriented offense.

If we use Smitty too much, the talking heads and fans will say on Jake that Smitty "bails him out" all the time and that we're not giving reps to the other receivers on the team, going back to the "feed the stud" mentality under Dan Henning.

There is no happy medium, is there? :lol:

Why would you not put the ball in Smith's hands when you can?

If he's open, throw it to him 40 times a game.

As long as they don't have to force it into him, then throw it to him as much as they can. BTW, anyone notice that we have 38 catches by our tight ends. That might be a record for Jake.

89 needs to touch the ball as much as possible. When he does, good things happen for us.

He's started looking for moose more. And even Jarret a little. But we should get King and Rosario back in. U remember how Rosario did when we gave the ball to him (Week 1 at SD: 7 catches, 96 yards, 1 TD) and 1 thing i'd really love to see is more swing passes to D-Will like vs KC. And hopefully, we can get Hackett more involved when he starts playing again
