Can't argue with the numbers but it was obvious there was and needed to be an extremely tight leash on the player when he was allowed to QB again.
On that subject - Are all these check downs Fitz is throwing really check downs or is he being told to throw only quick slants and drags? Looked like he wasn't checking down much of anything last game and those were the play calls.
The writers assertion that Geno had turned some kind of corner and with the additional weapons and Gailey we might have been looking good was the pipe smoking in my opinion. He sounds like he's pissed off that got taken away and now we're stuck with a pus arm that doesn't really make great decisions. I'm pissed off too - I wish Geno would have had a spiritual awakening and started to act like a leader instead of an entitled sphincter - and further that all translated to him being a middle of the pack or better NFL QB. The only difference is I believe the writer gave that I much greater chance of happening than I ever did.
Couldn't agree more. And I was hoping - along with most others - that Smith would mature a bit and we could benefit from his physical attributes. Wasn't holding a lot of hope but there was certainly some. Don't have much of any today.
Fact. Doesn't make Fitzpatrick any better of a QB but this dude is smoking out of the Geno's just young and inexperienced pipe. We all have our own opinions on the subject, but I just took another toke off the Geno's a highly character defective POS and that doesn't translate well to on-field acceptability bong.
Hometown kid - played QB in H.S. and was offered multiple hoop scholarships as well. Could be diamond in the rough - was used as blocking back/end at Illinois due to the receiver mix they enjoyed till his senior year then they let him catch footballs. Would be nice to pick up a valuable unexpected as we have the overwhelming propensity to schwans so many draft picks.
The Kyle Wilson of 2014 - imagine if ANY of the azzwipes we've drafted in the 3rd round and up since 2010 to play in our backfield had been worth the powder to blow them to hell. Well they're not. I think our backfield will be the sore spot of the D even with Revis back and will cost us football games Horrific drafting. Not bad - horrible.
I'm not as sure about that as I was before preseason game 1.
I think there's still a big chance for our backfield to be substandard even with #24 back on the island.
Allen out and Pryor looking like a turn style combined with highly suspect potential from Cromartie can put us in the same shape any team with a shut down corner is in -
plenty of other places to throw the ball.
