yes mybe he is not ready whos fault the coaches sing is the HC it's his fault. you learn on the field not in practice !
he hit every open WR , go back and see how many drops , yes he needs to know where he is on the field and where is the first down is but that comes with the more playeing time .
Not so fast. You are clearly being dazzled by Nate's arm. Don't get me wrong, the kid's got a cannon, but he can't read defenses. And it's more than just not knowing where you are on the field, which btw is not something he will develope with playing time. He should have developed that in High School. The bottom line is, Nate should have been studying his playbook and learning the offense in the off season. Instead, he figured he'd wait till training camp to start learning. This is why Sing is upset with him. The guy has talent but appears to be a little on the lazy side. Sounds alot like Jamarcus Russell. It's not Sing's fault that Nate showed up unprepared. And as far as his only mistake being the missed first down, you are dead wrong. He was playing against a vanilla defense. Yet he still had trouble reading the coverages. How many times did he immediately roll out of the pocket? Nate is no doubt more talented than our other options, but there is more to playing QB than have a great arm. He is raw. QB is played between the ears my friend. If he were our starter, he'd be chewed up and spit out by week 3. No one prep's or studies game film in the preseason. You add that to the equation, and Nate would clearly be in over his head. 1 great throw in preseason does not make this guy our savior. But it appears to have loaded up the Nate Davis should be our starter bandwagon. For the record, I am an Alex Smith hater. No one wants to see Nate Davis grow and succeed more than I do. But it's clear after last night that he is not ready to be the 2nd string. Hopefully the public calling out motivates him.
