Now go watch how often Elliott uses it. Of the 33 passes Chad Simpson caught last year, Elliott threw him 28 of them. Even pro-rating playing time, that's still a much better use of a check down option than Pierce or Brink ever made. It's all about being aware of your surroundings and I'm not just talking about what's coming at you, I'm talking about what you can use to your advantage to make a play as well. You can at least take a look at Elliott's knack for tunnel vision and say, hey at least he uses the bail out and knows to look for THAT. Pierce? Not so much.
Like I said...
No one is disagreeing that the other QB's suck too.
