Wow, already people coming out with the JToxcuses aren't they?
My question is... why is his performance a surprise? This is the type of performance that we saw from him in the first 2 pre-season games. He can make some "nice" looking throws but over the course of the game he will generally give up the ball and will make some questionable decisions.
And as much as people are saying "He will get better"... let's not forget that so will the defenses (and / or teams) that he will be facing as well. Frank Gore averaged 6.85 yards a carry. That's not going to happen every week folks.
Yep. People hoping for him to keep getting better are crazy. These first few games are his best opportunity to do well. After the league starts getting lots of game film on him they will figure out how to stop him. Right now to stop him you just let him be himself and turn the ball over.
Who's making excuses? We said he needs to protect the ball better but he threw the ball well but he needs to show that he can improve from game to game.
That's not excuses, that's just not judging a player by 1 game.
The excuses is people saying "He played well if you don't count the turnovers." That is the same thing Alexcusers used to say. You can't pick and choose what counts and what doesn't when evaulating him. He should be evaluated based on the entire game and he only gets one evaluation (good, bad, average, etc). He is called Just Turn Overs for a reason, that is what he does. Why do people think he will magically stop doing it?
God that INT was sooooooooooooooooooooooooo horrible. I was sitting in UR and everyone and their mother was screaming "RUNNNNNNNN!" because he only needed 3 yards and had a huge running lane. Nope, that would have been too simple.
