Default I want to see more of TJ Yates

I know he played with the 3rd string tonight, but I was impressed with his poise and awareness. I wasn't very impressed with Lienart just dumping the ball off.

Where can I see highlights of TJ Yates in the 2nd half? NFL network and ESPN only have 1st half clips.

Default Re: I want to see more of TJ Yates

yates won me over with his schaub impersonation ... touch and accuracy. leinart looked too much like carr to me - line drive dumpoffs. kubiak can scheme leinart into jake plummer, but that's the highest complement i can give.

yates has a lot of growing to do, and wont be NFL ready for a season or two, but he gave a good impression in that first game with the way he throws the ball and "his ability to make each throw". this is a phrase tossed around too much. jamarcus russell can bomb it 80 yards, but he cant "make each throw". chad pennington can ... and in the smallest of samplings it looks as if yates can as well.

Yates might be my favorite draft pick this year. The defensive picks were an absolute must, and I'm optimistic about them, but I really like Yates as a long-term sleeper.

Yates looked really good, i like hows he's not afraid to throw it down the field, he nearly had townsel on that long route where he was wide open but over threw him which would of been a sure TD, then the one to Jean. The boy impressed me. Hope he continues to grow.

Im much more confident in Yates than what we had last season at the #2 spot in .... Dan Iranouttaboundski.

Hopefully he can displace Lienart (asking a lot).... and we dont have to worry about a lefty QB.

In college, Yates improved dramatically over the years. He has a history of showing growth. I hope he can continue that trend.

Default Re: I want to see more of TJ Yates

Put me on this ship as well, even if it was against lesser competition, Yates looked good out there for a rookie QB with a shortened amount of time to get acclimated to the offense, team, and NFL life in general. And I feel like he accomplished that by just playing football, not overthinking it or anything, just going out there and making throws he knows he's made before.

Is he good enough to be the backup? No. Next year? Probably not as well. But he's a good prospect and it's always good to have someone in line for the future.

On that note, I also don't have faith in Leinart to be the guy we go to if Schaub goes down. He's our best bet as a number two, but fingers crossed we don't have to rely on him to make our first ever playoff appearance.

BTW - first post! Excited to be on here.

Default Re: I want to see more of TJ Yates

I was also impressed by the small sampling of TJ Yates on Monday. He's young and has a long ways to go but from what I saw, I was impressed with his field presence and the fact that he didn't look terrified and didn't make mistakes. Now he might look equally terrible next week but that's all part of the growing process. Hopefully Kubiak can turn Yates into a serviceable QB and then we can trade him for picks a couple years from now.

I thought Yates showed continued growth & substantial improvement the more reps he got. I know this is not going to happen but sit Schaub & lets see who the better QB is. Leinart or Yates. My money is on Yates

I hope, we can groom TJ to a legit starter material guy in 4-5 yrs. Won't it be nice to have a home grown QB?

He just needs to be ready to displace Leinart in two years when Leinart's contract runs out. There is still plenty of time for that.

This was my thought. He did look good out there and had the poise that is needed to be a great QB. Is he there yet? No, but really who would expect him to be? Two weeks...c'mon now!

But I'm confident that given two years to learn from Schaub he will become a great back up and our QB for the future. I was a little disappointed when they drafted him but I completely see why now.

(Just noticed this is post 1K for me!!)
