Good coaching knows better than to use a 31 year old possession receiver as a deep threat.
And yet that guy was let go to give the young fast guy that role. Just how many times did that happen anyway? 2 or 3? Does that really warrant making an issue of it. They tried it, it didnt work, they moved on. So should we. If anything it was a personnel issue un that we had all possesion type receivers until they felt Brown was ready. It more likely than nit that the coaching staff drove that change to begin with.
We have the star QB, the star TE, star rookie WR, above-average RBs.
The offensive line and play calling is what's held back the offense for the majority of the season, IMO.
The defense dropping off significantly doesn't help either. They are giving up 10 extra points more a game than last season. The offense has dropped off a little but only 2.3 less points per game compared to last year.
I really don't know. Avant was criminally underproductive here though. Could've been his own play. Could've been the way the coaches were using him. Could've been that Cam just never threw it to him when he was open. No matter which it was (or some combination of the three), I don't see how a 41 yard reception for the Chiefs proves much of anything.
Yeah...I just didn't see the connection between maximizing strengths of a player and the on field communication between Avant and Smith.
