Outside of a few, all of the critics of JB are pointing to the same thing. One thing. And the words "down field" are in it.
What is Reich's offensive philosophy compared to some of the others on the list?
What is JB's strengths compared to QBs who run other offenses?
Do you think maybe that synergy is why JB is here in the first place, or at least a major factor?
No. I haven't read one person, not one, talk about JBs accuracy in the short game.
Have you seen stats on that? Who posted them? Who has shown they've gotten out of the Parrot Cage and even thought about it?
Jordan Love has shown to be a very accurate short passer. Do you think there is a correlation between that and Ballard scouting him?
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.
