I couldn't watch last week but heard DW stepped it up in the 2nd half. Hoping to see some of that this weekend. I'm personally still waiting to see something elite. I couldn't decipher rather there were any of those last week from the comments because they are so biased in here. Some said he looked good, and others said he did not.
Well it ended up good. they know I don't like Watson, and I did complain he had some bad dropbacks, 2 on one drive.
he may have used a designed run play kind of like the raven/ and Lamar do so much, on one other play but there were the other bad dropbacks.
Well, he did have a really dumb play where he seemed so intent to prove he could scramble against the Pass rushers and drop back 35 yards and still throw.
does that work in the NFL? NO it ends in disaster more times.
then, on one play, DPJ broke away from the corner on the sideline and went up the line for a TD, now, he almost stepped out of bounds with step number 3, I thought he did kind of. but they didn't go back.
and DW had 2 more drives that ended in pass touchdowns
so, a 3 TD day ended up ok, you can't usually find much wrong with that, and I don't remember him throwing any int.
but, the dumb dropbacks
the dumb dropbacks, and when in previous weeks he looked afraid in the pocket or holding onto the ball too long, and
I get so tired of NFL players who appear to think, that because they are in the NFL, that they should and would be able to
duck around a tackle, deep in their own backfield, and do a 360 and think they would be fast enough to get away
and wind up losing another 30 yards or a fumble and it = disaster because they are not faster than physics except in their own mind.
But he looked top notch throwing 3 td and no picks in one half, it ended up that way.
I still kind of figure, pine for, that there is no unlimited TOP END speed to DW, he has a ceiling
where in Baker Mayfield, I believed, well Baker, he could have thrown 6 td, in any half where he cathes fire and if he Mayfield caught on fire for enough games in a row they'd win the superbowl because of him, like steve young his one year with the niners.
I don't think Watson, or ninetyning percent of all other NFL @bs will ever have that ability to cactch fire to unilimited ceiling like that.
But for a guy whose ceiling is probably a 3.5 td per half game then
for that , Watson looked elite, in at least the 2nd half of last weeks game. At least that's how it ended up.
