No, he had obvious flaws coming out that were addressed. Based on those flaws, I didn't know how he would perform.
I didn't want any QB.
So far, he hasn't been hurt too much by those flaws although his accuracy issues still come to light pretty often. As long as he progresses over the next 2 years, everything will be fine. He still has more Ints than TDs which is an issue he needs to correct.
As more teams watch tape on him, he'll have to evolve his game and continue making his weaknesses his strengths.
I hope he is an elite QB for this team for the next 12-15 years, but I'm gonna wait a while until I proclaim that he is.
true, but name a rookie who starts 16 games and isn't asked to only dink and dunk......that doesn't have accuracy issues. Even the dink and dunk rookies have them usually.
If he was asked to do what say a Sam Bradford was asked as a rookie....I would be more concerned of his TD/INT pass ratio. But he is asked to make game changing plays all game.....so the turnovers simply are almost unavoidable considering he is a rookie.
