Fair enough, though it certainly doesn't speak well of Corky's inability to rise above his coaches then.
It's the whole offense.
1.) Yes, Mac isn't making the easy throws that he should be making.
2.) The offensive line isn't buying Mac any time in the pocket. Although, I am happy that Andrews returned and think Mac will be able to at least plant his lead throwing foot. Also, the OL isn't popping open holes for Rham to run through.
3.) Harris has been hurt...and he is what we need for 3-4 yards and a cloud of dust kind of plays that get us into 2nd and 6's.
4.) The receivers aren't creating separation quickly enough. Now maybe that is scheme.
I would blame the coaches for not dialing up more play action or more RPO's....but PA doesn't work if the defense is expecting passes...and RPO is risky given miscommunications between Mac and Rham (see fumble recovery on 1st drive last week). To execute a RPO or a PA play...the OL needs to block. We almost always have a DE/DT in the pocket instantly.
Looking at pro football reference, Mac Jones is ranked:
27th for pocket time with 2.3 seconds per (Brady is just behind him with 2.2 seconds behind that horrid Bucs OL)
16th in the league for sacks taken with 25...Stafford has 29 sacks and he is the only other one who has played ONLY 9 games (Justin Fields leads the league with 40 sacks in 12 games)
32nd in facing blitzes with 52 (a product of him playing only 9 games, but also demonstrates that teams don't need to blitz an extra rusher to pressure Jones).
What has really regressed this year is our offensive line. In pre-season, I would have told you that the OL and the RB's would be the strengths of our offense.
