Sure, that's part of it. But what I'm saying is this:Isn't part of the idea of passing at all in our offense to go over the defense if they are cheating forward? In theory our deep balls should have a higher completion percentage than a standard offense.
In the QB pro days, you often see it considered to be a truly outstanding day for a QB who hits 26 or more out of 30 passes. These are scripted plays to a talented WR of the QB's choosing with nothing but air defending. I would venture to say that few QB's will hit even this percentage if you're throwing 30 deep balls with no one defending.
I don't know the answer to the question. I'm just curious as to what a decent percentage would be for defended deep balls? I'm hoping some of our guys with football coaching experience might have a clue.
