I like Yates, he just needs to get some confidence and let it fly.
These soft touch passes suck.
You're comparing Drew Brees to a rookie. Drew Brees. A rookie.
BTW, I don't necessarily disagree with you. But, Yates is a rookie thrown into the fire without the benefit of an off-season and who was inactive for the first 10 weeks. The only action he saw was tossing balls to a rehabbing Andre Johnson. I just can't slam the kid's long term potential right now.
