Joe is not accurate enough on short passes and the middle of the field is never been a strong suit either. The further we get away from the Cam Cameron era the more I realize he had Joe pegged pretty well. Should have gave Joe more freedom to audible. Should have made more adjustments. Shouldn't have pissed the rest of the offensive players off either. Time to move on? Yeah. In regards to knowing what was good for Joe he was more often right. He needs a good running game. He should be working outside the hashes more than the middle of the field, he should be pushing the ball down the field on throws. Not shorter timing patterns.
Cameron had Joe pegged? Under Kubiak he had career highs in TDs, yards, and got his completion percentage over 60 for the year for the first time since 2010. He also had better accuracy on his deep balls under Kubiak than he ever did with Cam.
He has the tendency a couple times a year to throw the ball right to a middle linebacker leaving us wondering how the hell he didnt see them there. Probably why you want to see him work the outside more. But im sure every QB does that a few times a year.
Not sure if you read the article, but I pointed out throws over the middle are just higher percentage throws. It makes sense to attack there to keep the sticks moving. You can dink a five yard pass and it goes five yards with some opportunity for yards after catch. Or you can heave it 20 yards toward the sideline and it goes five yards with no YAC because the sideline acts as a defender.
Joes best game of 2014 he attacked the middle of the field most often. His efficient portions of games this year came when he attacked the middle. And the efficiency went down when he did not.
