Barry striggled at Detroit when he didn't have the right wide reciever-QB duo. When Mitchell threw darts along the sideline it opened up the run game for Barry. This is not disimilar to our own offensive woes. If we cannot spread the defense vertically then the screen is pointless. If we do not spread the D vertically then our sweep game is pointless. If we do not spread the D vertically then our crossing routes are pointless. Are you seeing the trend? Our style of O requires stretching a D vertically. There is a domino effect that opens up the other plays.Prime Barry Sanders might struggle to get 50 yards a game behind this line. Something has to give there . . . especially at both tackle spots. Jaimes and Farniok aren't even sound back-ups at this stage--which is problematic given that they are the starters.
