QB recognizes blitz - throws the hot route immediately. WRs don't have to 1) recognize a blitz and 2) adjust based on that. It cut down on Smith's mistakes when he got blitzed. Now, this doesn't solve all problems, but I'm amazed that more teams don't employ a system like that.

Now, off to see if I can find the article quickly.

Edit: Found it a lot quicker than I thought - "Quarterbacking Made Simple"
IDK, was the ball in the air and thats why Jammer came off of Willis to make a break on the ball?? It kinda looked to me Jammer was in a cover 2. Had Willis and PFM been on the same page, it looked like that play could have gone for a TD.
