I don't think anybody could truthfuly look at last nights game and belame the line. There where plenty of time were they made a wall in front of cam and gave him adequate time to throw the ball down field or make a decision to get out of the pocket. Cam can't just sit in the pocket for minutes at a time and not expect to get sacked. Also the times that pressure came up the middle it was on Probowl center Kalil, which we shouldn't worry about because he's an allstar caliber player.
Another person to belame is the OC for not running the ball against one of the worst run defenses. Especially everytime we ran the ball we gashed them. Not saying the offensive line had a good game, but they should definetly not be the first ones to belame.
Ok, so I have a legit question that I honestly want clarification on. Why is it so bad that WRs catch with their body? Have their been any succesful WRs that have catched with their body throughout their career? This isnt a question trying to defend it or defending Hill, I never actually played football and sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but what is so wrong with body catching vs hand catching?
Catching with your body is a big misconception a lot of people have started saying that it is so terrible. The hall of famer Micheal Irvin has said many times that it is a neccesity to catch with you body at times, such as the slant route. Where you have a DB draped all over you from the snap of the ball and you have to secure the ball with out him striping the ball from your hands, while maybe getting hit by another player such as a safety or linebacker.
So no catching with your body isn't as bad as people make it seem. Not saying this is the way you are spose to catch all the time, but some times it is better to catch with your body then catch with the ball extended from your body. And any real receiver would tell you this.
I don't think people really understand how many times receivers catch the ball with out their eyes. Yes it's a good trait to have and obviously if Stephon Hill had this trait prolly wouldn't have been released by the Jets. Reason I said this is because there has to be more to his mistakes of dropping the ball then just looking it in. AJ Green even says he doesn't look the ball in he says "it's just a 'feel' thing".
But for what it's worth I think Stephon Hill will be a great addition once we can get him up to par and he moves to the regular roster. Ricky Prohl will get him what he needs and his skill set is unteachable. I can just imagine him and KB will be one of the most unique #1 and #2 receiver duos.
And how much field does a safety need to cover in a goal line situation compared to midfield.

Well as a strong safety you play closer to the line anyway. Free Safety is usually the person in midfield. Godfrey can play either safety, yes he's better at free than strong and for that case he's better at free than any other spot.
Oh and a side note that 30 yard catch that the Bills had on Godfrey, wasn't Godfrey fault and if you played in the secondary you would know that it was Cason's fault for not communicating presnap to watch the switch, or what we use to call scissors. If this was effectively played out Godfrey would have took the inside route while Cason would take the outside route receiver which would have eliminated that wheel route. This is what happen last year when Norman didn't take the outside route on that game winning touchdown last year against the Bills.
