When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead

When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


Green's usage over last two exhibition games is concerning. He's been lightly targeted and played only 50% of the snaps.

I thought McCoy said at the end of last season he regretted not using Ladarius more during the season and planned to so in 2014.

Is it just pre-season and not to worry or is it going to be just more of the same. Green presents such a nightmare for coverage, why is McCoy not unleashing this monster or is he just waiting to do so when the bell finally rings?

He's got to catch balls that hit his hands. That one pass down the middle(would have been a nice gainer) went right through his hands.

Oh man.  I think that Green will get over 100 yards a few times this season.  Rivers loves Gates, but we'll see a lot more of Green this year.

EXACTLY, just as I stated in an earlier thread.  People, I wouldn't be blaming the coaches if you're not seeing Green targeted as much as you'd like.  Blame Rivers if you must, but the only guy there will be to blame if Green doesn't get a lot of targets will be Green himself, if he can't pull in passes placed right into his hands like the one he dropped Sunday.

But I wouldn't get worked up over any of this right now, regardless.  It's just preseason.  For the most part, it doesn't mean jack.

I'm pretty sure Rivers would love to toss Green the rock more when he can consistently catch the ball. That goes especially for those fairly easy catches.


Til then his best and go to options will be those he's comfortable with and those he has great chemistry with. Allen, Floyd, Gates and lately Woody.
It's not about how many times you get knocked down.  It's whether or not you are willing to get back up.

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


Last year Green was targeted 28 times, 17 receptions (60.7%), one drop and 0 fumbles.  Gates was targeted 109 times, 77 receptions (70.6%), 7 drops, and 2 fumbles.  Re-watching some of the games. most of Gates drops were semi-contested: should have been caught, but there was a bit of traffic.  Most of Green's catches were uncontested because of the tremendous mismatch he creates.  I look for Green to play a lot more snaps, and with defenses focusing on Gates, Green should produce more than a few big plays (22.1 yards per reception).

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


After Gates performance I have no reason to not expect a great year from him, especially if he gets one on ones
which I suspect with all the other targets we got, Woody being one of the key X factors!

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


These two posts have it exactly right.  He's got to catch balls like the one he dropped on Sunday.  Philip has thrown 19 passes in 3 games and has only targeted Green on one or two(it hasn't been many) and the offense is not showing anything new because as 88 said....IT'S THE PRESEASON.

Usually agree with the vast majority of board members, but on this one, some of you are assigning the blame in the wrong direction. The throw to Green was underthrown. The announcers noted it when it happened and brother Shoe had this to say immediately after the play:

Underthrown by Rivers. Otherwise Green makes a big play!

“I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.”

Go back and look at that play again, folks. That one was not on Green.

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


So in other words, Grenen can only make plays on perfectly thrown passes. All the more reason why Floyd, Allen and espcieally Gates will be his first options.


How often have we seen Gates make a play on a not so perfect pass?

I agree with you. The ball was under thrown, giving the defender and opportunity to get his hand on it.

If the ball had been thrown a little farther, Ladarius would have been out to the races. With that said, it did hit his hands, and in the NFL, you should make that play.

But still he should have been in the mix more during pre-season to give hims some opportunity. My only thought is they are holding him back until the bell rings.

The ball was about a half a yard under thrown.  However, the defender never touched it and it should have been caught.  The TD that Tutu caught against KC last year had a defender swipe at it just as close as Green had his.  One player caught the pass, one did not.  It's just the preseason and the Chargers scored on that drive anyway.  LG should have made the play.

Not worried about Green.

If the pre-season is any indicator it's Keenan Allen and Malcom Floyd you should wonder about, we don't seem to like to throw to our WRs anymore. My only concern on the offensive side of the ball is that we are once again looking too conservative.

I just Have to believe with the weapons we have you would be aFool not to use them unless you wanted to
Use the running game to slow the tempo!

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


Well Honk buddy the reason Green is not getting the touches you want is because we have many weapons  This is a good problem to have.   Gates, Green, Floyd, Allen, Royal,  and three to four running backs!    Our offense is going to be great as long as one thing doesn't happen.   We cannot have injuries in the O line especially at the tackle spot because of our lack of depth.

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


I'm not too worried about Green not getting enough touches.  The fact is that Rivers has lots of weapons and on any given game, the coaches and Rivers will decide which match-ups make best sense against the specific team we are playing.  Offense does not worry me.  I am still worried about our defense.  Now, if there are key injuries, that is a much different case.

I just want Rivers to throw to whomever's open. I don't care at all who doesn't get the ball.

And a lot of that comes back to Rivers being able to change plays at the LOS, give back what the D is showing, that
Is Major Freedom, like I've said, if they're crazy enough to go one on ones on Gates or show any other fool hearty
Things, toss the Rock to has the Best chance to make the play, it's a Team Sport! Sappy Right?

Re: When Is McCoy Going To Raise Ladarius From The Dead 


Guys he threw 19 passes in three games.  Completed 16 of them(should have been 17) and when the games start counting, whomever is open will get the ball.

As I said last year before the first game, the new offense would be similar to what he ran in Raleigh.  He completed 72% his senior year at N. C. State with only 7 interceptions(one was a bad call) I think it was out of almost 500 attempts(maybe more).  If Keenan is open he will get it.  If Malcom is the guy he will get it.  If it's Gates or anybody else then they will get it.  99.9999% of the time, the right guy will have the ball thrown his way.
