Fun stat about Kolb, because of his signing bonuses in Philadelphia and Arizona - he's made 32m in the past three seasons.


19 starts...

The Raiders should sign him and cut Palmer.


Aren't we supposed to be going into a vertical offense? Don't get me wrong, he's better than Pryor but I'm not sure it would be the best fit. I know you're talking from a financial standpoint though.

The passes he called weren’t the long bombs that Al Davis would have loved, either. Over 86% of the passes thrown were 10 yards or less. That means that only about 14 of every 100 passes thrown were thrown to a spot 10 yards past the line of scrimmage. Even fewer were what many would term a “deep” pass (20 yards beyond the line of scrimmage).


The Bucs lived and died with a plethora of short passes – screens, slants, out routes – in which Josh Freeman would get the ball to his wide receivers, tight end, running back or fullback 3-8 yards downfield and placing it where the receivers could get down the field.


The Bucs did get a fair number of 10+ yard plays out of the short passes but fans looking for Olson to bring a Hue-Jackson-like, explosive, downfield passing game will likely come away disappointed.

You still have to adjust to your personnel though. We have a very good deep threat in Moore, and Ford is good too we can't just abandon that from our offense. Palmer isn't the type of QB to be making 5 yard passes all the time, it would be a waste of his talent, and any QB such as Pryor could make the throws in this short passing game.
