OL playing much better, but Wilson isn't

I know I'm not perfect

but before you start pointing fingers...
make sure you hands are clean!”

I'm not judging him; I'm just explaining why he typed what he typed.  He wants to live a life filled with hate, that's on him, my slate is clean.  I only hate Zach Wilson because I'm a social justice warrior.

The OL has been very good for a few weeks now.  Getting Van Rotten out and LDT helps too, so I honestly expect it to continue to get a little better each week.  They were clearly adjusting to new a ne

The main problem IMO is that LaFleur only calls teh good plays for the other 12 QB's we've seen run the offense with efficiency. He likes to call it differently for Wilson, specifically, he calls teh

Describe what he should have done and please keep in mind his eyes are on his receivers.  

He was already moving left before the rusher broke through so I'll give him that but he seemed to give up at the point of contact and could've kept moving further outside to buy him more time before the 2 support men came up to meet him.

It seemed hopeless to me, but I’ll watch with fresh eyes and edit in a moment.

I’m not seeing it.   If he goes right he won’t have an angle to the quick throw he expects to be there.  
 

He expects the block to be there but there, but he gets nothing.

The point is, I don't  even think Wilson saw the guy coming from the left. Why would he move to left if there is an unblocked pass rusher coming from that side

Serious question, have you watched the video? The rush doesn’t come from the left, it comes from the gap. Wilson moves AWAY from the pressure by going left. He expects ty Johnson to block the DL coming from the inside. Spinning right there makes no sense as you would be moving away from your blocker (the RB). Ty Johnson can’t block, which is ultimately why the play was blown up.

Yep.  And I distinctly remember people in the game thread complaining that we weren't running the ball enough, lol.  

So which is it?  Do we throw more so that Wilson learns how to play the position, or run more because its the only thing that works (because Wilson sucks, at least at the moment)?  People are going to complain in either direction, apparently...

When you start from the premise that Zach is a secret-FQB-in-hiding and the entire team, coaches, and staff are letting him down the conclusion kind of leads to itself.

Also, yes, I'll own it:  I hate Zach Wilson primarily because I hate white people.  It has nothing to do with him sucking at football and me being tired of having QB's who suck at football.  

You nailed it, @Gastineau Lives.

Wait. What?

What's to understand?  I only hate Zach Wilson because I hate the whites.  Has nothing to do with how he performs on the field.  Gastineau saw right through me.  What an intelligent, true fan that he is.

I'm reacting to the fact that the accusation was ever made. I browsed the thread and didn't see it.

Not even going to argue this. You clearly don't know what you are looking at.

I suppose I see your point that he expected a block. I suppose I just think he could've moved another couple feet to the left to not be instantly engulfed should the block fail.

And that’s where the “Zach bails from the pocket too early” complaints come.  
 

There are fair complaints about his play.  The only one I see as valid about dealing with pressure is he should step up into the pocket on some plays - but I understand why he doesn’t trust it.

Isn’t Zach’s entire BYU highlight reel just him running out of the pocket and flipping it downfield to open receivers (who now sell life insurance as a career)?

Wow the Dax Milne disrespect

That's why you married a black woman. Your shared hatred of whitey, lol.

Why would you even imagine that was true?

I don’t know you, you don’t know me. I do know that we try to keep this place comfortable for everyone. That’s all I try to do. If I’ve learned one thing in life it is to not worry about the things in life I have no control over so I can focus on the ones I do.

Yeah, not sure the steps they were talking about were from your grandma's brownie recipe.
