No three step drops and throws. No quick timing pattern throws. No quick post patterns. Just sayin.
You're correct. I remember Dan Marino mentioning once that a quarterback has about three seconds maximum from the snap to make the throw, so while some complain about the offensive line not being able to hold their blocks, more attention should probably be given to the quarterback's speed in finding his receiver and making the throw.
I somewhat agree as well, it seems like he needs to work on his footwork and timing, his throwing mechanics are not bad but could improve, watching Johnny Football and him are like day and night. I think working with a guru over the summer could definitely improve his game
I don't know looks like he got rid of the ball a lot quicker than last year to me. He looked sharp, one fumble was Mack Brown's fault he totally misses his blocking assignment.
That being said, AJ McCarron also looked to hold the ball too long last night, just saying.
I agree, but to me he did look a little bit better than last year... It's just one game in, so it's hard to compare...
Yea 17/22 no int with 3 drops bench him heard 3 of the suspensions were off players also
He's doing fine.
Watching Tahj Boyd last night; boom, boom, boom .... just lightning quick strikes at times. Snap - throw: Snap - throw.
It does seem like our O is missing this ingredient, not just Driskel.
Same thing when you watch Bama. Just precision at times taking teams apart with super fast timed throws.
I don't know, at times it felt very reminiscent of last years O -- but I have faith in Champ and Pease ... they know that much like lsu, they need more production out of the offense to compete for a championship. Ground and pound and great D is the foundation, but an offense that can consistently drive and put up numbers is what's going to get them over the top.
Overall I had a great time watching the game yesterday and am excited to see the passing game get better and better.
I too thought he looked somewhat better than last year. He is still a work in progress but it's going in the right direction.....he was late on 2 throws yesterday but also had 2 drops.
fla doesn't have those patterns in their offense
Agreed, much better than last year, he checked down a lot yesterday, he needs to let it fly more but as long as he is making the correct reads, AND HAS TIME, then hard to complain.
He may never make lightning decisions. He's pretty laid back - but intense and focused. He has toughness, escapability, and great running ability. He's a winner and a leader.
The one thing I would like to see is for him to throw the ball away a couple of times a game.
compared to last season, thought driskel was much improved.
Not quite sure why so many have been criticizing the vertical game from yesterday, we had no reason to hit home run balls...it's not that he can't hit them...just didn't need to
JD did what he needed to do this game. not so sure they planned on opening it up and showing their hand in a game like this.
All kidding aside, Driskel showed tremendous improvement. I'm hopeful that he'll make explosive plays this season.
JD is clearly improved from last year. I'll take that, and assume he'll keep improving.
I see what you did.
Too bad really.
Well, I think we all are hoping.
Takes one to know one. :grin:
