And his lack of running in the first few games seems to show he thinks that he should throw and never run. Even in this game his runs were solid and put us in better position. The first field goal could have been a 52 yearder but he picked up yards on the ground.
To be honest with you, maturity in that sense, seems to be only a small fraction of his problems.
How about his decision making? 10 INTs through 9 games. Or his accuracy overall? Pretty bad completion percentage of 60% (on only 192 attempts which is only the 22nd most in the league). Not only that but he doesn't get many yards per attempt, number shown above. BTW Schaub has a 68% completion percentage on 215 attempts. He also has 1.9 more yards per attempt than Vince.
How about his pocket presence? He has a pretty good OL yet he still manages to get sacked quite often. Sacked 10 times in the last 4 games. He seems to have a hard time reading the defense, and it shows as he stands in the pocket for too long, or decides to run right away and gets bottled up.
Regarding the bolded area: Do you have any idea what your talking about? In the first game he carried the ball 11 times for 22 yards and 1 touchdown. 11 carries is the most in a single game by VY all year. WTH are you talking about?
Also his running with the football, although clutch at times, is not very good overall as he fumbles quite often and averages about 3.9 YPC on 55 carries, which is alot of carries for a QB, VY or not.
