I know the Jags' passing game has been the subject of much commentary on its inability to get going so far this season. Bad pass protection, QB indecisiveness, good opposing corners, playing from behind: there are any number of reasons to point to that can be used to justify why we just haven't started clicking yet in the passing game.
And we obviously aren't yet to the point so often talked and written about where the good offenses don't take what's given by the defense, but take what they do well, take what they want.
All that aside, where's Zach Miller?
I had expectations he be catching, or least be targetted, three or four times a game. Four games into the season, and Miller has only three catches so far. He's been so anonymous, I wasn't even aware he's played in (or at least been active) every game.
I saw 86 covering kicks, so he's healthy. I would guess if he's healthy enough to play on those special teams, he's definitely healthy enough to play offense.
On the flip-side: Thomas is progressing nicely. And if MSW and Marcedes Lewis are getting limited opportunities, why would I think a second-year guy making the switch from QB to TE would figure significantly in a struggling passing game.
Schizophrenic or not, I'm waiting for 86 to emerge.
