I don't need to calm down... unless you mean I need to quit laughing.
No one else has said that it IS the singular basis for determining that he is not "the answer". So the fact that you feel the need to point out that it is not is pretty ridiculous.
By all means you should start a thread about JBs short game accuracy and compare his games throughout the season. This thread is about his passing game over 20 yards so it's not really relevant.
I'm sure people do it differently. Some people watch games and draw conclusions, some analyze stats and draw conclusions, some use a combination of both. Some people just act like they know everything and that no one is capable of drawing their own conclusions.
Nothing surprising here.
Reich has Brissett throw short crossing routes all the time and hopes for YAC yards. If Brissett throws longer, he is just as likely to throw an INT as a completion. Reich just has Brissett do what Brissett is capable of doing.
Call me crazy, but of the QBs that could be available with our first 2nd rounder (from the Skins), i would take Fromm... his scouting report sounds a lot like that of Brees and even Peyton, to a degree... he is listed at 6'2...has been running a pro style O since high school...is the smartest on the field and makes all of his reads... the "knock" on his is that he doesnt have the strongest arm... but neither does Brees, Peyton, Brady etc.
If it were possible to get a stud on D or a stud WR in the 1st and then Fromm in the 2nd, count me in. Heck, Jacoby DOES have a cannon of an arm, but lacks all of the other parts, in my opinion.
Anyhow, just my 2 cents.
