Thats exactly what they try to do on virtually every drive this season, but defenses long ago figured out how to defend Mac by putting 9 or 10 in the box. Mac has had no answer.I am still wondering if the secret is to go back to earlier LAST year. First read, quick release, minimal risk. When he has been at his best this year, it has been with just that. My memory tells me it was the same with Zappe. Maybe thats just the secret for not so great (now) quarterbacks. Good heavy, run it 30+ times, let him throw for 200, short passes, no picks. They realized last year that can get you into the playoffs and then blown out, but nothing this year suggests Mac is ready for that next step.
