Accorsi's Eli scouting report sounds a lot like last season

PSUGiant : 3/15/2017 5:15 pm
Sees the field… In shotgun on most plays and his only running option is a draw… his offensive line is poor. Red-shirt freshman left tackle. Eli doesn't trust his protection. Can't. No way he can take any form of a deep drop and look downfield. With no running game (10 yards rushing the first half) and no real top receivers, he's stuck with the three-step drops and waiting til the last second to see if a receiver can get free. No tight end either. No flaring back. So he's taking some big hits. Taking them well.

Except for the "no real receiver" part, I think it's quite similar.

Couldn't agree more
He had one WR most of last year.

OBJ. Sheppard started to drop the ball after the first few games. The dead body of Victor Cruz on the other side.The retired Jennings at rb. Larry Tye and a green rookie.

Then in two games the recievers fumbled the ball away on the first series Balt/Rams. Those fumblers were OBJ and Leaping Larry.
Eli did not have much to work with last year.
Yup. The ENTIRE offense last year was Eli to Beckham-

A high-wire act. Marshall is such a huge upgrade. Cruz was useless, and Shep is a slot guy.

Perkins will make yards and break big plays where Jennings could not.

Ellison is huge upgrade. All of these things are + for the OL.

for an abysmal 88 yards a game.

"Best" Receiving TE: 395 yds and 1 TD

Great catch on the old scouting report.
Pretty much exact

TE is the key

Has always been the safety valve for Eli when in trouble

Eli made TEs look better then they are

Boss , Ballard , Bennet , Donnell (to a lesser extent)
Everybody hates on Tye

but he wasnt the problem. Eli never looked his way last year. Every time Tye got theball, something good happened.

Im fine with him as a receiving TE. Only one i want is Shaheen

Only TE i would want in the draft is Shaheen in the 2nd.

With the exception of OBJ, that report was pretty on point for 2016
