CK needs to learn to stay in the pocket sometimes. I can't remember the last time I saw him take a hit to make a play or throw. He must hang in the pocket and quickly COMPLETE his progressions. Running laterally not only cuts your options down at WR, it exhausts the OL trying to protect you running all over the place all game.
There were multiple times in the IND game where Kap scrambled for absolutely no reason.
One play in particular (1st quarter), the entire right side of the OL had their blocks pancaked on the ground. The left side had three OL blocking 2 DL. A nice pocket to throw from:
Kap's internal clock tells him to scramble. OL don't have eyes in the back of their heads and now Kap has generated pressure on himself.
One split second later, had he stayed in the pocket, he would have had Vance on a short post. Instead, Kap is scrambling and his body is not in a position to throw. This ends up being a run for -1 yards:
Yup, this is the main reason why we lost the last two games. Kaep is too skittish in the pocket and struggles to find the open receiver. If he waited he would have had an easy completion to Vance over the middle, bread and butter play. He routinely does this and it is hurting our team.
