So explain to me how throwing the ball 79% of the time on plays between 5 and 10 yards is "highly likely he's taking off and running to convert"??
Johnny was 31/39 for 346 yards and a 79% completion rate.
So.... what game were you watching again?
Lol, you pick 1 game, highlight a few things and think you're proving something? I only used the 7-10 yard range b/c thats the range in which he's most likely to be able to pick it up running the ball...it'd be quite silly of him to think he could pick up a first down running the ball on anything more than that....he's gotta sit back and try to throw it on anything over 10 yards.
But How about the fact that he's had double digit carries in 1/2 the games this year with a high of 19 last week...some of those are designed runs...but still too many for a qb..
How about the fact that of his 5 ints, 3 have come in the red zone?
He trusts his legs more than his arm....common thing with running qbs.
