Rough around the edges, but those can be polished. He's got smarts, he's a leader, and he doesn't crack under pressure.
This for a 5th round 3rd string QB without an off-season or any reps that was thrown into the fire.
I'm not going to hold Ed Reed in Baltimore during a playoff game against him like so many folks do.
Id also say too many folks hold JJ responsible for our loss last year when it was a clear combination of failures JJ, Yates and FG kicking. Well you should hold those 3 picks against him to some degree if you are also going to sing praises to his upside. Those 3 ints could have easily been 4-5 btw. What Yates did last season more often than not was just play well enough for us not to lose, it was our D that helped TJ to most of his wins not TJ. Check out the drop in ppg Schaub to Yates and dont mention Dre because Schaub didnt see a drop in ppg without Dre.
