Does anyone remember having a discussion about how few catches a third receiver would get in our system when Ricky Proehl was here. Seems to me he was the primary target on third down due to his ability to find seams and get open as well as hold onto the ball.
If Jarrett wants to see a lot of balls then prove to jake he is money on third down and can get open and separate from the defender. If he does he will get his chances. If he proves he can be the man, Jake will get him the ball alot.
for the record in 2003
smith 88 recps/ 1,110 yards/ 7 TDs
TEs didn't factor too much into it, they had combined 30 catches/ 314 yards/ 1 TD
between davis/foster/goings/hoover there were 64 catches/ 535 yards / 4 TDs
i thihnk our RBs are going to have to get more to that range as far as TDs are concerned and with goodson it can be like that.
proehl's and moose's numbers i was kind of surprised at. i haven't seen the targets or situational numbers for 2003 in a while but in '04 proehl was targeted 70 times and got 34 recps. i'd imagine that '03 wasn't too off from that.
