    Post hit the broad side of a barn

    In the text below, what does the bolded expression mean?

    Chad noticed for the first time that Linda had a bandage along her left arm. " You got hit! " " Only spattered with some rock chips, " she said. " I stayed well down. Those guys couldn't hit the broad side of a barn anyway.

    They were such bad shots that they could not even hit the side of a barn.
