From SBNation’s Windy City Gridiron:
It’s no surprise that Marc Trestman loves the slant – it was his go-to move both as an NFL offensive coordinator and a CFL head coach. The real surprise is how big of a step Alshon Jeffery appears to have taken this off-season. After a middling 2012 season, Jeffery has stepped into the role of #2 WR quite nicely. On this one of his seven receptions against the Raiders, Jeffery proved that Phil Emery was right to trade up and grab the WR in the second round last season.
Look to see a lot of these three-receiver patterns in the regular season. This one is nothing special, which is not surprising given that Trestman has openly declared he’s saving the good stuff for the regular season.
