He definitely did not look any farther than Kupp on third downs, not that that is a bad thing. Maybe Higbey’s injury really limited game planning for him? Goff and McVay are the only ones who really know if the plays design for him didn’t work or were not executed for some other reason.If that were the case, (Being Goff's fault) then you'd have expected Higbee's targets to have gone up not down. Goff's depth of pass was lowest of McVay era, while his comp % was his career high, meaning he was taking less risk and throwing short. Even #16's staunchest defenders will agree he locked in on Kupp and even Woods to a point even though they were blanketed. Surely if the TE, (who was allegedly QB's best friend, practice buddy, rookie roomie etc) was open as a safety valve, the unconfident and unable QB would have tried to get him the ball....
