During media sessions today Brandon Weeden was asked about the lack of targets for Greg Little this past weekend against the Giants and was overall very supportive and dismissive of the notion.
He had one game where he was target twice. It was a coincidence. I talked to him about it. He’s a guy who’s capable of making a bunch of plays. I’d be crazy not to throw to him.
Maybe Weeden is just being supportive of Little, or maybe it is just coincidence. More likely it had to do with Greg Little being thrust into the primary receiver role and most likely ending up with much more difficult matchups with Mohamed Massaquoi and Travis Benjamin both missing time in the last game. Jordan Norwood caught nine balls on nine targets and was on crutches today.
So, chances are good that Little will get more than two targets this week against Cincinnati by default if not by the coincidence pendulum swinging back the other way.
