if i understood that post by mark a while back, the run game is supposed to create opportunities for big (deep) pass plays. that's one reason i thought mvs would be a big part of this offense. but it seems he's more fast than quick. he has build-up speed. it's been so long since we've seen esb that i can't remember whether he's quick or not. but i agree that is a need. hopefully we can find that guy in the draft.
Yup, build up speed is a great way to put it. I don't know what his testing numbers were but I don't see any kind of burst or twitch to him. Not sudden off the line or in and out of breaks. I don't think he reads the ball well in the air or knows how to adjust his pace accordingly (remember all camp long how he and Rodgers just couldn't connect deep?). Worst of all he's a body catcher, always has been. There's a reason he was a 5th rounder. Looking back, if not for other reasons, I think Cobb would've done well in this offense.
