they didn't bother to notice that Oakland was the least thrown at team in the NFL every year he played there...because they couldn't stop the run, and they were always behind so no one needed to throw.
he was never TESTED in Oakland...(remember that SP?)
this year he is finally getting tested, and he is getting lit up all over the fckin place...
Why throw at a receiver who is blanketed? Deion was rarely "tested" for this same reason, until he got older.
No different than a baserunner refusing to tag because Vlad Guerrero was certainly gonna throw his ass out at the plate.
