12.7%? Yikes.

That doesn't surprise me at all. If you watch him it's obvious he reads the field the fastest, makes the right decision and gets the ball out super fast. He is the quickest to get rid of the ball of any of the guys we have. That's super obvious just watching the games.

GQ still learning how to apply the offense. He stood statuesque a lot in the pocket those first 3 games. 2017 was easier for him because they were playing sandlot ball. 2018 was more about playing within the offense. Will be interesting to see how quick his reads are this year, had to unlearn timing of his drops and all of the little things and reapply it to Kyle's offense.

Remember, GQ was taught in an entirely different offense in the NFL whereas BDN drafted into Kyle's offense.

Have we forgotten how much the offense had to change in the amount of time it takes for a ligament to snap? McKinnon was injured at the last second nearly in preseason. Then we started with the NFC North defending champs on the road. Jimmy G. had to adjust to and learn the revamped offense in no time flat.

GQ was babies by McDaniel and Shanny, two of the best offense mind in the league, mentored by Brady. Did GQ looked ready and kicked ass last season after an offseason to study the playbook?

Mullens? He had to learn footwork from YouTube, studies Shanny's playbook so dedicatedly that he was ready when called upon. If it was GQ out there that did what Mullens did in those games, some would praise that as special talent.

It wasn't leveled playing field. But Mullen's worked harder, wanted it more, and was ready.

This is dumb. Everyone knows Jimmy G is >>>>>>>>>>>>>> over Mullens.

The results have been the same. Jimmy does have an exceptional release, but all else has been fairly equal.

So then, who would you rather have starting all 16 games this upcoming season? Don't say it's Mullens, because you're straight up lying if you do.

That's not the point. The point is that GQ still has a lot to prove. He has shown to be extremely slow at his progressions in this offense when he's not playing backyard play design.

Extremely slow is a massive overstatement. He has less than a season of play in an offense that takes some of the smartest in the game three years to master. They both looked pretty good in a dumbed down version...that's it. We have seen nothing of Mullins in the version without training wheels and Jimmy was a 2.5 game window against tough opponents when a lot of the offense hadn't come together yet. You are drawing way too much from small sample sizes. They both have a lot to prove, one lost an important season to injury, the other was written off as a late round scrub, but the idea that Jimmy has been slow to develop is a gross overstatement.

No question they still have a lot to prove. Don't be shocked if they are looking at QB's next year if Jimmy can't produce. Nick is a nice backup but he has limitations on the types of throws he can make. If Jimmy stays healthy but looks really average the will start looking at other options. They can't move forward without a top 10 or top 12 QB.

So good we have this dude. Great eye by Kyle. Jimmy or no Jimmy, I think we are in good hands if Nick has to play.

Kyle did find him but it was actually Rich Scangarello who originally brought Mullens to the Niners' attention. He's more responsible for discovering Nick than anybody else.
Unfortunately he was so good, he's the offensive coach for Denver now. Shane Day brought in Wilton, or so I think. And I think that was a good move.

Having said that, you have to give some credit to Kyle for going after BDN when no other team really wanted to draft him.

As for BDN vs GQ. Right now I'm putting PasoDoc's lunch money on GQ. That isn't to say BeatHard doesnt have a chance. He does, but he has to really show it now or he's for sure gone.(or traded)

Do you have some examples of him being extremely slow with going through his progressions? I don't think that was the case. He took a lot of sacks against the Lions, but that seemed like more of a case of no one getting open rather than Garoppolo not going through the progression. Jimmy wasn't the problem with our slow start on offense. It had more to do with McKinnon and Goodwin both getting injured before the season had really even gotten started and injuries on the offensive line.

Jimmy is going to be great this season if he can stay healthy. Unfortunately that's a big if.
