Quarterback Nate Longshore admits he’s missed some receivers the past couple of games, but is confident it won’t become a trend.
“We’re winning. That’s the first and foremost thing,” he said. “Obviously, you always want to improve. I missed some opportunities the last couple of games. But at the same time, there’s always going to be the ones you miss. It’s just a matter of managing the game to the point where you can still be successful.
“I feel like it’s still early in the year so there’s nothing to be worried about. As the season goes on, there will be more opportunities to improve that part of my game.”
Longshore was asked specifically about a handful of deep balls that he wasn’t able to connect with open receivers.
“There’s nothing to worry about,” he said. “We hit it every day in practice. At the same time, when we missed those, it didnt’ stall our offense. There’s still the next down. I feel like we’re controlling the ball well and limiting turnovers. We’re getting it done. We’re 3-0.”
