Though the offense has looked rough this preseason I think we'll see some improvement between now and games 2-3. They need some positive plays and they need playmakers to generate those plays. The leaders that create such plays haven't been on the field.
Williams' carries have been limited. We aren't pounding D-lines the way we do during the regular season. DWill & Stewart's numbers usually come after the D-lines have been softened by early, (often) low-yardage body blows. Our passing emphasis has limited this strategy.
Furthermore, Stewart, Smith (and Otah) haven't been on the field. Otah's a beast on that right side; let's not forget how he factors in. It's easier to pass protect when you're sitting at 2 and 5 or 3rd and 4 than when you're at 3rd and 11. Defenses can't pin their ears back.
You basically have a rookie WR corps across the board. I know K. Moore and Jarret aren't rookies but their playing time has been minimal. The rest of the crew ARE rookies. Moore didn't suddenly forget how to play. But a QB needs teammates to step up. All throws aren't going to be picture-perfect. They still need to be caught if they hit your hands (LaFell!); you have to run correct routes and the QB needs to trust WRs to make the correct reads on the fly. If Moore is guessing where the WR is going to go, he'll hold onto the ball longer and stare down a receiver. But this is less of an issue when Smitty is on the field. Moore trusts Smitty, he trusts Rosario. And both have come up big for Moore at different times. I think our first two games will show some improvements in all these areas.
