Once again, I'm not calling for his head, we all know he's got upside. But right now he sucks
Franic and panicky no. Footwork when there is a clean pocket has always been good when he's in rhythm which all qb's need to be he's right on par with all of them. even in the midst of chaos he still made probably one of his best throws of the season on the pass to vance macdonald that wasn't completed. and at the same time he missed on a pass that would have been a touchdown to boldin in the beginning of the game.
vision, we need to know what the options are and designed to do. if a wr is open but isn't even on the design list then what? roman and them are very controlling types no room for improv really and that's been since they've gotten here.
decision making can always be better he isn't perfect or even close to perfect
but most of all personnel is the o.c. fault and that is the most important thing. you keep lmj on the bench you start kyle williams for half of a season and then cut him meaning there was no excuse for him to have been playing this entire time to just CUT HIM off the team.
you don't use baldwin who is obviously better.
you don't give your young qb any type of safety valve tight end, instead you use the main tight end as the sole deep threat and that's it.
you run no screens to take pressure off
you insist on banging your head on getting 1 of 2 people open and ignore everyone else.
even the things you are good at you go away from, which is running creatively.. why do we run more in a blow out than in a 1 point game?
kap's very first game he showed he could go through progressions, so why not let the guy have multiple options every time he goes back to pass? and please get kap out of shotgun... let him quick drop or 7 step if you run pistol that's different.
run 3wr sets if you're not going to use the 2nd te as a wr.
there are so many things we could have been doing with the talent we had that we didn't. it's too much to ignore.
look at all of the other offenses and how they help out their qb's ask yourself would any of those qb's thrive in this type of system? and the answer to that is no. no qb would.
which is why i despise the comparisons when 1 qb has a coordinator handicapping him..
wilson, open plan simple routes multiple options
luck..has his damn college coordinator lol
if we're going to be honest let's be completely honest here. roman has fallen short hasn't helped improve anything passing wise and has got it in his head the only people that should be open are vd and boldin and if they aren't screw it.
And none of this let's kap off the hook for not hitting on certain plays that were there to be made. he needs to step all the way up passing wise and hit all these other wr's that we have if we want to have a chance.
and at the same time roman has to give these guys multiple opportunities to make plays the margin of error is so small it's a miracle we do anything passing wise.
dial up a specific play at a specific time and if its open but its missed don't go to it ever again.
we are all pointing at the macdonald play that he didn't come up with, but with the ability shown to get deep why wasn't it dialed up again?
cause that's just not how roman does things...
