What do you base that on? Has Joey had a full quarter to display what he can do? At least Gatewood is considered a run threat. Currently, Nix is not much of a passing threat, and while he is fast and athletic, he runs like a passing QB. If I’m a DC, I’m dedicating as few men as possible to the pass and telling everyone else to crash on the one, maybe two running threats. Nix will be lethal when he dials it in, but he is pretty off right now.
I think Nix can be great, but I’m worried we’re actually going to mess his psyche up putting too much on him too early. I wish Gus would just try Gatewood for one entire meaningful quarter. I think it might be good for Nix to share the responsibility.
All that said, Gus isn’t helping either. It feels like he is constantly unaware of his own team team’s strengths and weaknesses.
