two of the 3 ints not his fault
I'm so tired of people saying this, they were all his fault. His throws were late, allowing a defender to tip it up in the air and pick it off.
I agree they weren't smart throws but I'm pretty sure 2 picks were tipped off the WRs hands the landed in the defenders hands. 3 out of Smiths 5 picks have been tipped ball ints. Two off Crabtree.
It doesn't matter whos fault. The offense needs to get in sync quick. Tipped balls, bad throws, doesn't matter. We are losing. We can dissect it 20 million ways but at the end of the day our entire offense needs to learn to overcome and finish games out.
I mean it's great we aren't getting blown out and we actually have games but this whole not being able to finish crap is 2 games too old
It doesn't matter who the ball was tipped off of. The passes were late so the interceptions are the fault of the QB.
In law there's this thing called the "reasonable person" standard. Lets apply that to WRs. No "reasonable WR" would do anything different in these situations.
At the end of a year, you go back and look at all the interceptions a QB has and you say..."Well he threw X INTs this year." You don't go back and say, "Well gee whiz, he had about 5 of those tipped off a DB, 4 tipped off a WRs hands..." and so on.
You could go back to any QB and eliminate interceptions based on this ridiculous standard. The fact is, a QBs inaccuracy, bad decision making, and bad timing are what causes balls to be deflected the majority of the time.
