That Steve Smith Slant

 

We have all discussed this issues with the long pass plays on 3rd and short.  Especially with Hixon.  Anyways where is Steve Smith in the slot running a slant where the blitzing LBs used to be.  That has always been our bread and butter play.  After getting so many balls thrown his way in the first 4-5 weeks he has been targeted alot less.  I say throw it to Smith short pick up the first down and then, go long on 1st down. 

Maybe Eli just wants to give these guys a shot to make plays.  I mean if Mario or Hixon or Nicks catches a deep ball on 3rd and short the past few weeks the game could have changed drastically, but it didnt happen.  Lets see if we play a little more conservative against the Eagles and stay with a short passing game.
