QB practice reports for all the 2nd year class.


Recommended Posts

Fine…. Since nobody wanted to do my homework for me… i Looked for a quick summary of all. 

Mac Jones - “

Patriots' Mac Jones Addresses Training-Camp Struggles: 'I'm Going to Figure It Out'

Trevor Lawrence - Looks good 

This year, though, there seems to be a natural maturation taking place in Lawrence's game. Through 10 practices this year, Lawrence has thrown just one interception. The number of bad decisions, of which there were quite a few a year ago, has dwindled considerably. 

Lawrence has seemingly been in complete sync with the offense and where the ball should go, showing a leap as a decision-maker the Jaguars needed to see him make. 

He has also taken a larger command of the offense, frequently communicating with wide receivers, tight ends, running backs, and offensive linemen after throws, both completions and incompletions. He diligently goes through the routes and protections with his teammates, ensuring he doesn't make the same mistake twice. And so far, he hasn't.

Zach Wilson- we know   

Trey Lance- lots of paywall or older stuff - starter but struggling it looks like   

Kellen Mond- “Kellen Mond, Sean Mannion are neck and neck for backup quarterback job in Minnesota”

Kyle Trask- this report says he’s battling to not get replaced in next years draft

”Trask was fine in 2021 as there weren’t many expectations. He had some plays that showed what he could be, while others would leave people scratching their heads. Year two of camp for him has been no different. In the first portion of camp without the pads on, Trask looked decent and many said he looked better than Blaine Gabbert who he was likely going to be battling with for the backup quarterback job. Since the pads have come on though, it has seemed to just go downhill from there.

He has routinely thrown wobbly balls, multiple interceptions and has struggled with accuracy. While he has made some nice plays on occasion, you would like to see a second round pick progress a bit more in year two.”

 

Davis Mills 6 day old report 

Mills' best pass Wednesday morning: a long completion to wide receiver Keke Coutee. His worst moment: a red-zone interception on a throw intended for wide receiver Brandin Cooks picked off by corner Vernon Hargreaves.

The strong-armed third-round draft pick from Stanford delivered a series of sharp throws and took much better care of the football than he had previously in several interception-filled practice sessions. Mills displayed improved command of the offense, confidence and accuracy. Besides his bomb to Coutee, Mills also found wide receiver Chris Conley for a touchdown pass on the sideline that was ruled down a few yards shy of the end zone. 
 

Justin Fields 
Quarterback

Any issue the Bears' offense has had finding its groove doesn't fall on Fields' shoulders. 

The second-year quarterback showcased an ability to respond to adversity early on in camp. On Day 3, Fields opened the 11-on-11 period with two interceptions, both of which were tremendous plays by Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker, respectively. 

Fields bounced back with a touchdown pass to Darnell Mooney, an athletic jump pass to Cole Kmet for six, and an off-platform laser to Equanimeous St. Brown for another score. Fields also ripped off a 20-yard rushing touchdown, although he might have been brought down before the goal line had it not been training camp. 

The Ohio State product has operated behind several offensive line combinations and thrown to almost every one of the receivers vying for a roster spot. 

Even with four of his top six receivers out this week, Fields modified the offense to get it moving even without his top weapons. 

It hasn't all been perfect. Fields has been late on a few throws and has missed a couple open receivers. 

But the good has far outweighed the bad. Fields' chemistry with Mooney remains unmatched, and the offseason work with Kmet clearly is paying dividends. 

Grade: B

Passing offense

In a vacuum, Fields has been a positive. But as a whole, the passing game needs a lot of work. 

The offensive line has been unable to consistently give Fields time no matter which five are out there.

When the line has held firm, the receivers have failed to create enough separation to create chunk plays. Mooney and St. Brown have been weapons in the red zone, and Kmet has made some excellent grabs in third-down situational drills. 

But overall, the passing game has been filled with pre-snap penalties and alignment issues typical of a team in the early stages of an install. 

Velus Jones Jr. has flashed his playmaking ability at times, but the Bears have not been able to show they can get him, Mooney, or Kmet the ball consistently.

There's a lot of work to be done. 

Grade: C-minus

I think SF is really going to be under the microscop this year.  If Lance doesn't get them to the playoffs and is the reason there's going to be a lot of second guessing in SF.  

They took the same development route KC took with Mahomes.  They gave up a lot of draft capital and had a near SB team without him.  I think the pressure is going to be intense.

Sure they will.... they are an otherwise playoff team proven by Jimmy G.

Lance and the the staff will be heros or zeros come the end of the season.

I only want stats, tracking every throw, especially the no contact pad less practices, those are the ones that really matter. 

Remember how good Zach was this time last year? Haha

I head Cowert say Mac Jones was having a bad camp.

Sort of.

Belichick is installing tenets of the Shanahan offense.  The OL is struggling picking it up.  This is partly due to the Patriots not really having OL that are built for the blocking scheme (agile).  One that is built for it, their first round draft pick, is struggling.  This has caused the running game and Mac to struggle.  Yesterday, there was improvement, but it is still a process.

lmfao, I wonder how many scallops fell for this.  Too funny.

Ironically, Jets fans would be very lucky to have a weapon like Mooney on this team.  Really hope Moore and Wilson can be that type of threat.  That said, not sure it matters for the Bears, that OL is going to be the death of Fields.

It’s a legit quote and he should not have made it, but context is key. It was a practice day when all the first and second string WRs were out, so he was describing what is was like throwing to guys that were probably not going to make the team.

Maury.....

When you get a quote like that.... context does not matter... period ...

 

 

 

 

Unless it's against your own team... then context matters
