Difficult for a post to be more wrong. The play you are showing was the worst of the Fitz underthrows, nothing Devin could other than PI. Maybe he should have done that but that is not fighting for the ball either. A good throw inside and long and that is a touchdown You are correct you do not see a huge amount of breakways and that is because even against man, few receivers actually get that step. Smith has gotten a step or more fairly oftem.
lol it is about 90% Fitz. There were a couple of horrendously underthrown balls that maybe Smith could have committed PI to break up better but he has consistently gotten a step on defenders and decent passes would have been TDs. Also, Smith is playing too fast for Fitz on breaking routes, but getting open and Fitz just misses him. With Brandon he can just throw it up even on short throws essentially and Brandon will get it. He actually has to be a QB with Smith.
Do people even bother to try and substantiate the BS that they throw out there as factual?? Fact: with dramatically better weapons on offense, and playing against teams with below average defenses Fitz is no better at preventing three and outs than Geno. So far this year, we are 23rd in 3 and out percentage at 23.53. So we suck. The Pats are at 5.88% Last year, against a much tougher schedule and numerous good defenses, including Pats twice, we were at 26.34. We sucked. However, you could make the argument because of the turnovers, defense we have and especially the upgrades at skill positions and OC, that Fitz is likely worse than Geno at this, especially when you consider the field position we got from those turnovers which put us in FG minimum position which would not count as a 3 and out since we scored. Also, if you go back and watch Geno the second half of last year he consistently moved up into the pocket not away. Of course we should expect a spread 1st and 2nd year QB to consistently move up in the pocket right away, right? Not really as for mobile QBs since defenders are so much slower moving back allows them to avoid pressure, so it is a tendency they need to overcome, and Geno showed last year he had. So in typical Geno bashing fashion, nothing here but more emotional declarations with no basis in fact. Want a true fact comparing Fitz to Geno???? Since 2012, (so year before Geno was even in the league) Geno Smith has 7 game winning drives, and 5 in 2013 which led the NFL. This shows the ability to make plays under pressure. That is 15th of all QBs in the NFL. Also 1 more than Aaron Rodgers. Fitzpatrick: Well it would be 1 or zero.. The list I found lists a couple players at 1, and there may be more at just one(http://www.milehighreport.com/2015/5/7/8565677/most-game-winning-drives-since-2012) But this is a fact that points out just how BAD Fitz is at making plays. Essentially if you get behind with Fitz, you lose. The ONLY way to win with Fitz is get ahead and try and protect the lead.
Yes we are 3-1, but I see very little contribution from Fitz to that 3-1. Reality is that we have beaten 3 bad teams, lost to one very bad team, and can point the finger entirely at the defense as the reason why. Fitz has 6 turnovers in 4 games, Geno had 13 in 13 games last year and 10 in 12 games if you don't count the Buffalo debacle, yet Fitz is being hailed as smart and professional and better than Geno. Do not see it.
I he failed since the suspension they would just add the additional suspension immediately. They do not hold off. Now whether he gets through the offseason that remains to be seen. It does happen though when the player realizes if they screw up again they are gone.
I think he is terrible. There was a short window where the run first type QB like Kap or RGIII was successful, but defenses have figured them out and as complete QBs they are terrible. Look at GB. First couple times they played Kapernick they had no idea how to defend him or stop him from running, but this weekend they completely shut him down. Plus I do not think he fits our offense I agree with Jimmy Johnson. Bradshaw asked Jimmy Johnson how he would coach up Kapernick. His response: "I would find a new QB"
Yeah, for a short time I was disappointed that we were not getting as many sacks as I liked but then I realized that even without the sacks we are being super disruptive consistently which leads to lots of easy incompletions, and interceptions.
I don't think we have seen a soft zone yet.Although we blitz a lot, it never seems we are selling out to blitz either, the coverage concepts behind are brilliant. If the offense could turn it up a couple notches, the defense could get even scarier. Hopefully Richardson is in shape, he will be a dynamic addition to the defense.
