You say NE and Pitt don't have the receiver go to an open spot and wait. I've seen them do that many a time. Seems to me Pitt did that quite a bit right here in Mile High last year, and Roth just waited til they turned their heads and let the ball go. I'm not saying that's exclusively their passing O, I'm saying Denver should try that.
Ahhh, yes. What I meant to say is I don't think NE or Pitt ever intend for the receiver to go to an open spot to wait unless the play is broken down or taking longer than expected. Last week Jake didn't have time to get his head up, let alone make his reads, and progressions. I think their pass protection helps Big Ben and Tom Brady sit to make the throws.
I think Cutler will be a huge improvement NEXT YEAR because he has a much quicker release, and better accuracy in the long and short, throws with velocity, or with touch, and has the arm strength to make all of the throws needed. He needs to learn how to look off his receivers better though.
