On this episode of “The Bruce Exclusive,” Bruce makes an argument that receiver size is not strongly correlated with red-zone and goal-line effectiveness. Why do teams target their tall receivers the most inside the 10? Is there a flaw in goal-line play-calling that lends itself towards a bias for tall receivers? What does it mean for the Buffalo Bills in the recent past and the future?
