This is true.
If Larry has some separation he still has good hands.
But the argument is what's he worth in salary?
I mean it's easy to trash PFF, but I don't think people understand how difficult it is to actually quantify performance & value in football. That doesn't mean you treat everything they say as the holy gospel - but to dismiss it completely is beyond embarrassing.
With that being said - a player's grade can be just as heavily reliant on coaching & scheme as the actual talent level of that player.
In this case, Fitz not being able to get open doesn't mean that he does not have the ability to get open - but rather that the tape says he isn't getting open. So I would bet that a large part of Larry's struggles on paper have more to do with the emphasis of getting others open rather than himself.
I mean I don't know what to tell you about this take.
I don't think Kyler played an outstanding game, but I think he played pretty damn well given the limitations of the gameplan. Yeah he didn't throw the ball all over the place - but that had more to do with the gameplan than Kyler's performance. Ultimately he went 3/3 scoring TDs in the redzone, and didn't really put the ball in harm's way.
If Andy Isabella doesn't trip over his own feet on that deep ball down the sideline, the narrative on Kyler's game is completely different. That ball was right where it had to be, and Isabella completely butchered it.
I saw more screen passes in 3and long then downfield passesI agree with EVERTHING you said. However, we need to be taking shots downfield on early downs and not waiting until 3rd and 12.
As far as Fitz how can he do anything when he gets 2 balls his way and 1 of them is behind the line of scrimmage which is totally ridiculous?
If we have Hopkins streaking down one side, Issabella down the other side and someone crossing over the middle Kyler has to find the open guy.
in another post I mention how we should have Kyler under center for the reason you mention. Defenses have virtually stopped rushing him and forcing him to find a wr in flooded zones.
We need to draft Terrence Marshall from LSU, he will prob will the blitnekoff this year. 7 tds through 3 games 6"3 220 and is still a burner. We need a large target like fitz.

I dunno man, since Hopkins came here, I think it made it more obvious that we need more talent at WR. Plus, Marshall would be a replacement for fitz and a high quality wr on a reasonable salary for the next 5 years. Fitz is the only big WR target we have right now.No more drafting WRs yet. Not high picks anyway. We have far too many other holes on this team.
Other teams are showing you don't need 3 star wide receivers if you have good trenches and DBs and if you don't have those things the WRs are pointless anyway.

Disagree a bit. Between OL, CB, and OLB...we have a ton of more pressing needs. Hell, if Kyler can't make this group work, we may need to draft a RB to take the ball out of his hand more. Kyler needs to start showing he can elevate talent. FA could obviously change our needs, but at this time, I just don't see it as the priority.I understand the reason for this year, but I’d be kind of furious if we don’t draft a WR at least in the 3rd round next draft.
