Hill was targeted 7 times last week for no receptions. prior to that 1 time against NO (again no receptions)
I am the leader of the Geno stinks bandwagon but it's probably ok that Hill sits this one out.
Oh no, Its fine with me also, but I just wanted to see the stats and make my own conclusions.
OK,In the New Orleans game he was targeted but 1 time, so does this mean?
1. They ran the ball great in that game and had no need to throw down the field to Hill
2. He couldnt get separation, and thus was never targeted
I would assume a little of both
BUT, against Buffalo, he was targeted 7 times and had NO receptions which leads to these hypothesis
1. To be targeted that many times with NO receptions, I can only conclude that the passes were poorly thrown and uncatchable or He dropped a few. Did he have any drops?
So, if He was not targeted in the NO game because of the run game, and the passes were poorly thrown in the Buffalo game, then I see no reason to bench him as it wasnt his fault for the lack of production.
If however, he was not targeted because he couldnt get seperation in NO, and he dropped passes in the Buffalo game, then obviously he should be benched for lack of separation.
Also, if a guy with 4.3 speed in his 2nd year, still cant run routes and get separation, then I would wonder about the capabilities of our coaches, in particular, our receivers coach, who is?
