In order to compare the plays of two rookie QBs in their respective first PS, I'm pulling up some "underwhelming" plays by Yates just so we can compare them to Keenum's. It is not intended to put down Yates because people here know that I like him when we first drafted him. Yates played the 4th quarter against the Jets in his first game and went 6-12 for 97 yards (50% completion pct and 8.1 ypa) The following were the underwhelming plays: First series 1-10-HST 32 (14:26) T.Yates pass incomplete deep middle to D.Townsel. First pass overthrown to Townsel on a post route. There was no safety back there; Townsel had beaten his man good. Townsel tried to stretch with one hand but can only manage to reach the ball with his fingertips. ... This is what I'm talking about. If both Posey and Iglesias had tried to stretch with one hand, they would at least have a fighting chance at making a catch. Second series. 1-10-HST 10 (12:15) T.Yates sacked at HST 10 for 0 yards (G.McIntyre). Yates was chased out of the pocket. He could have thrown the ball away easily; instead, he ran out of bound for a loss of one (it was credited as a sack). 3-9-HST 11 (11:09) T.Yates pass short middle to J.Maehl to HST 16 for 5 yards (E.Lankster). On third down, Yates chose to go with a quick pass to Maehl that had no chance to convert the third down. Third series. 1-10-HST 16 (6:01) T.Yates pass incomplete deep left to G.Graham. Yates overthew Graham who was wide open on the left side line. The ball was way high above in the air. Even though Graham tried to stretch with one hand, he was never close to reach it. This here is considered a REAL overthrown ball. 1-10-HST 42 (5:15) T.Yates pass incomplete short right to C.Ogbonnaya [M.Dixon]. Yates was pressured and threw the ball ten miles away from Ogbonnaya. He could have made a less inacurate pass. Chris O. had no chance at the ball. (That is if I want to knitpick like you Rmartin, LOL) 3-10-HST 42 (5:00) (Shotgun) T.Yates pass incomplete short middle to G.Graham. Graham was running a shallow crossing route; it's not that much different from Iglesias running the out route. He stretched with one hand and can only reach the ball with his fingertips. Again, if Iglesias had tried to stretch with one hand from the start, he has a shot at the ball. Yates' pass is more off-target than Case.
