I don’t remember this quote from last season, but it’s great ($$).
“For a while, everybody was on my ass about not getting it to George (Pickens),” Monken said. “Then Jermaine (Burton) made some plays, and everybody wants to throw it to Jermaine.”
Hey, man, if you can’t stand the bulletin board heat, stay out of the kitchen.
Seth points out that Monken’s got more skill position dilemmas than just that one.
Well, there’s no Pickens in 2021, at least not for now, and yet there still may be plenty of people getting on Monken’s butt this year.
And not just the passing game. As Monken pointed out, his running backs last year “probably would like more touches.” And yet they all proceeded to return for 2021.
There are a couple of obvious ways for him to spread the wealth — run more plays and keep the offense opened up in the second half in blow outs. But, really, this is an offensive coordinator’s first world problem.
If they can figure out a starting five on the o-line, it should be a blast watching Monken try to keep fans off his butt.
