Nate Davis - Will he eventually be great?

He has a good arm, he has size, he's got some mobility; now let's see how this guy adapts to NFL defense schemes, his pocket awareness, poise, and leadership ability.

THANK YOU ENOUGH OF THIS MADNESS!!!

None of us have really seen enough of him to make any sort of authoritative announcement about his future one way or the other. He has shown some very nice flashes in preseason which bodes well for him, but I'm not convinced that he's ever going to be the answer. For whatever it's worth, I think he has a good chance of becoming a very good backup QB, but I doubt that he'll ever be a top-tear starting QB. But we'll see.

this

Makes no sense.

i lost interest in baseball during the steroids blow up. At first it was just going to be a temporary strike from watching/supporting the game but I just haven't felt interested in picking it up again.

Just because he learns better by pictures rather then writing doesn't mean he cant understand what is going on. Hell, even I like to be showed what to do rather than told most of the time.

I believe this may be a considerable problem. Right now he is learning parts of Raye offense. But who is to say Raye will be the OC 2 years from now. What if we end up with a Gruden type coordinator who expects his QB to learn a lot of material quickly? We've seen how changing coordinators can affect someone as bright as Smith. I would have reservations about someone who may take additional time or require additonal tutoring to grasp basic material in what is in a fact a very dynamic league.

I have thought of the same things, but his issue is not learning the material, just the way that the material is presented to him. Like more film study with coaches instead of just reading the plabook. It would take more time to learn it but he would still learn it. You would just have to have the new coordinator in house early in the preseason, but that is important for any QB learning a new system.
