only problem is he doesn't have much time to improve, 3 weeks? 

My feeling was that BA the douche must've told him to NOT run ever because he seemed to just stay in the pocket and try to be a 'traditional' QB when his major talent is to be mobile and get yards with his legs.  I can understand we don't want him to get injured and bring out Glass Joe but he should still do what comes natural to him and keep the opposing D on it's toes.

However, he did have at least two more bounce off defenders' hands, and had a lot of trouble making throws to the sideline.  Opponents will pick up on that in a hurry.


Yes, this is what worried me more. He was VERY lucky a few times. He easily could have had 3 or 4 picks, having thrown almost straight at a couple of defenders. He didn't show very good awareness of where the defenders were in relation to his intended receivers.

I also agree that BA should have him rolling out more, move the pocket some. Of course, now with all the new personnel on the line, that might not be realistic.

Actually LFT that is exactly what you have to do with a makeshift line, buys the qb some time and limits the number of reads in his progression.  Downside is you're only playing with half the field.

This is moot of course, as this the week Arians will unveil his newest brainchild, the nine-step drop.

Yeah, I don't know much about OL play. Except enough to see that we can't block well. Anyone can see that.

FFS, STFU.

Think that was my exact response when the booing started.

Mine too.
