Linus Washington was blanketed yet again. Never open, especially deep.

I'm telling you, man... that's not fair. Linus got open consistently.


Agreed.

Sweed dropped a lot of wide open passes. Which was awesome because it meant he was that wide open....except for the dropping part.

In all honesty I can and do envision Washington making a few HUGE plays in the second half of the campaign.

He has been quiet but the club was a tire fire in weeks 1-4 to make measures worse for the young Boldin clone....Think about how badly the O was pressing eh ?


I think the dude ends up being a very very nice swiss army knife if he can adapt his game. JW does make some plays down the stretch of the 2018 campaign IMHO.

Can not agree More TB, Jeems.
In the plays that I have seen Washington he has been very well covered. Not even NFL open. That said in other plays we at least know Washington can block and draw coverage. Those two indicate some contributions. ;)

He’s open immediately on this play.

This play you can’t tell because the protection broke down and Ben had to throw a short pass, so Washington’s man left him to go after the ball. But he came off the line with speed and looked like he could have easily blown by the defender who was in a slow backpedal.

Got open on the curl here.

Open on this shallow crosser.

That’s four of the 13 plays.

Certainly has the Potential. My point in my more recent post was supporting what TB and your post suggested. Ben is not comfortable with Washington yet. In the meantime he does block and he does draw coverage. Those right there contribute to the offense. Once Ben and Washington are on the same page I'm hopeful they'll blow up the outside world like Ben and Smith-Schuster have.

Yeah...and I posted this on the first place because the All-22 has made me change my mind a little on Washington.

Still pissed at him missing the block though... 8-)

Put me down on record that Washington will contribute later in the year but he'll contribute. By contribute I'll say he ends the season with 4-6Td's. Yes, I said 4-6.

I think it'll be enough that he stops taking a beating on these boards and next year he really takes a step forward and is more like a JuJu part 2 clone.

As I said before, James Washington is about #20 in the lists of my concerns about this offense.
As long as he's getting better each game, what he puts up in stats is irrelevant

With his frame and body type, he could be a weapon as a blocker if he gets consistent and keeps technique. Isn't as sexy as deep catches, but it's the catalyst for splash plays. He's flashed (maybe more than, really) the ability.

I wish the steelers had somebody on defense that is a hidden gem the organization and coaching staff is hiding from the rest of the league. Washington will be a solid contributor in the future, imo. From what I've seen, he beats the shit out of Rogers et al.

I think Washington ain't get'n the reps. I believe Hunter gets 1st team reps in practice all week, well 2-3 days anyway due to coach's decision... you all know who I'm talking about. Anyway, I think Washington could benefit from more 1st team reps. Not sure how they determine who and why. Just think Washington is still very young and raw for the NFL and he will get better. I think Hunter will not be on the team this time next season. Likely Heyward-Bey is gone as well, I hope!

He's been defying the odds, and our hopes, for years now. I mean, he's making a living as a special teams player and he's not even good at that. How or why he's still on the team defies logic.
