There are just no holes, constant penetration, Turner looks skittish - I think he looks fine running, but is having trouble recognizing the blocking scheme. Everything is just off, and I didn't see much 8-in-the-box situations, allowing defenses to play coverage.

Speaking of being off, Ryan just doesn't look in sync at all. I think Roddy runs a majority of deep routes and Ryan is just not comfortable pushing it down field. The big plays to other WRs are usually short to intermediate passes with a lot of RAC. A couple times White got open deep and Ryan just flat out missed him - by a lot - they just don't seem to be on the same page.

I think there is a lot of hesitant play going on in that offense from front to back. I would describe it as a lack of trust - that they just aren't confident that their teammate is going to do what they are supposed to do, so everyone plays cautious.

I don't really know how else to explain it - I've seen them a few times, and they just don't look like a confident bunch. I figured they would play out of it, but they still look the same as when I saw them in Week 2.

This is good and sheds some light on the situation. ;-D

Especially the part about the trust and Ryan not being comfortable throwing downfield - except on the 2 bombs to Jones 2 weeks ago. It makes sense that the WR2 are thriving. I'm actually considering playing Douglas over Roddy this week (if not Douglas than maybe Damian Williams or Vincent Brown).

Anyone else have some insight from watching the games?

And I own him in a standard scoring league - not PPR. He's still close to 20 - not 11 :-t

yea, that's why i don't like non-ppr leagues, it seems abit more random to me because the touchdown total has a bigger effect and tds are harder to predict year to year.
