Slots can be small, but they need to run good routes

Seems like a bigger body, more sure hands guy should be in the slot to beat a quick jam and gain inside position on db - giving good target for QB. Our little guy doesn't really seem suited for that duty.

and the point of a slot, is he's off the ball, not as easy to jam a guy off the ball. The X is on the ball and teams can more easily jam the X if they play press . . . for slot, the idea is shiftiness and quickness can work well and if they play to try and jam, then converting a short to deep route can be a built-in sight option,

Small slots are still usefull, that is what TA was drafted for to be a physical upgrade to Amendola

RFL131February 17, 2017 06:58AM

Ram49150February 17, 2017 09:58AM

  He should be used like he was two seasons ago

Blue and Gold135February 16, 2017 12:29PM

Hazlet Hacksaw123February 16, 2017 01:10PM

  In 3-wide, yes.

Blue and Gold109February 16, 2017 01:26PM

  I think TA is one of our best playmakers.....

  Every word you just said is true

LesBaker118February 16, 2017 01:44PM

IowaRam139February 16, 2017 02:42PM
