How many passes into the endzone were called back due to penalty or dropped in the endzone in the last two games alone? 6? 7? Throwing to wideouts in the endzone is not a missing element from our offense. I'd like to see more hurry up in certain situations but I don't think our offense necessitates it. We would probably see more of it if Garcon and Davis were healthy but your options start becoming limited as you move to depth players. Where you originally had two plays that could stretch the field, run underneath routes, and be factors in the blocking game you're replacing them with guys that are more one dimensional. It requires more substitution. Not saying we shouldn't still incorporate it at times, I just don't think its needed as a large part of our offense this year. Griffin also already has quite a bit on his plate as it is for a rookie QB.
