    Maybe he was throwing short becasue he is sick ofTorrey pulling his routes up short.

    Yeah, that's probably it. That's definitely it. Torry's always pulling up short on those go routes!

    From the Filmstudy thread:

    The long throws were generally on target and not dangerously misthrown. Smith had a drop and another on which he might not have been stripped.

    But missing open receivers has nothing to do with the system and he's doing that more now. Last week he faced the best defense in the league that was manhandling the Oline so that was a big part of it. This week he has a chance to rack up some stats; lets see if he can do it.
    There are literally very few open receivers in our offense.

    I do think the contract is in the back of his mind but I agree with the people that say he's just sick of the system. I think a lot of our offensive players are frustrated with our offensive coaching staff and it's starting to show.They all give the company line during interviews but these guys are not going to run through brick walls for Cameron.

    Well, Filmstudy has a more accurate view than I do, for sure. I would've sworn that at least 2 and maybe it was 3 deep throws to Smith were badly underthrown, causing Torrey to pull up and wait.

    Yes he will! But Joe is nowhere close to elite. He is barely average and his stats prove that!

    With that logic, the 2010 chargers were the best team in the league.

    I thought I saw the same thing. Sure, they were thrown to Torrey, but he had a defender draped on him. The one long pass (that was broken up up by defender) would have been a sure touchdown if Flacco throw it farther to the right side of the field where Torrey could run away from the defender and catch it. In the NFL, if you wait until a receiver is open, you may be waiting too long. The really good quarterbacks anticipate when the receiver will be open and the ball is in the air before that. Aikman was good at that, especially the out routes. The ball was in the air before Irvin made his break.
