Playmakers on the outside
posted at 2/5/2013 9:38 PM EST
The times when Brady threw the pass deep down the football field in this past AFC Championship game, those passes would be out of reach for the wide receivers such as Wes. A lot of that is due to the lack of separation from the cornerback or safety. This flaw on the outside doesn't show up until they play a team with an actual defense in the playoffs. Bill needs to realize that he needs wide receivers on the outside to win the one on one battles and separate from cornerbacks and safeties. This offense gets away with it in the regular season, but not so when the postseason rolls around in January. If they don't upgrade the wide receiving core, it will continue to happen in the postseason.

And in tight cover as Boldin and Jones demonstrated they can go up and get it!
