Even if Eli threw the ball perfectly to Hixon, that would have not guaranteed us a 1st down because, again, he was behind the marker, not ahead.
In this game, Eli made some throws that could have been easily caught: receivers made contact with both hands, had a hold of it but let it go, or let a nice throw go past them.
In that Washington game, quite a few noticeable throws Eli made that were overthrown, two of them resulting in picks, with one of them right after Washington fumbled the ball.
Eli got kudos last week because he got us the go-ahead score. I don't think anyone has said that Eli was perfect and didn't make mistakes in that game; quite the opposite.
Did I say that the WRs played well? I must have missed where I wrote that.

I will reaffirm my previous sentiments (of the past 3 years) that Bradshaw is not a #1 back any more.
The coaches are being stubborn.
Bradshaw doesn't matchup well against certain teams. Yet he continues to get the bulk of the carries.
Case in point. In the Eagle game, it was obvious Bradshaw style didn't jive with the Eagles front. That was a game were Brown who's a down field runner, should have gotten most of the carries.
I also don't understand why Wilson still isn't getting carries. He hasn't put the ball on the ground since week 1.
If he was so bad at blitz pick up, then why was he CLEARLY the number 2 back to start the season?
the good things to take from that game is that weathford and tynes and the special teams as a whole were very good. they actually have been pretty good so far this year. plus they did a real good job at stopping felix jones and the run game. the dline did get some good pressure for most of the game.
