yeah. he was definitely rusty and still isn't the most accurate passer in the game, but that isn't exactly news. it was a first game but he did get a whole half to play through and really never got on track. he will probably look better the remainder of the preseason but he definitely looked pretty mortal.
teams are now going to gameplan on him more and have one or even two spys on him and just let him have man to man coverage on the outside (his weakness throwing wise). this will help against his scrambling, preventing big plays by the RB or VY, and could result in a lot of interceptions over the middle when he tries to force it. there were a few throws last night that could have easily been picked off.
at the end of the day you don't bet against VY overcoming all this and getting things right by Week One. the problem is that the rest of the team is just pretty much awful outside of their DL. can he overcome that? only time will tell.
*drinks beer* here is to hoping that he has a bad year and we can whoop up on them 2 times this year. payback is a b*tch.
