So, feeling a little off about the foles pick i went back and looked at all the footage i could find.
1. He could have had the worst supporting cast of any qb drafted.
He threw some great balls, he hit guys in small windows on out patterns (the second toughest throw in football in my opinion) he threw some great spot passes and he moved very well, they ran alot of PA boot plays and he hardly ever got tracked by the end. He threw on the run and most impressive he threw the deep middle ball in traffic (the toughest throw imo).
2. That offensive line was worse than some juco or prep school lines. How in the hell foles did that well in that mess is amazing
I watch the usc game tape and that dline didnt even have to use moves, they were in files face on three step drops using nuthing but a bullrush. It was awful to watch.
3. The possition coaches at arizona must be the worst in the pac ten
Foles was left out to dry buy guys short arming balls, not fighting through defenders, giving up in routes less than 4 steps into one, and drops out the wazzoo. Even the running back gave up on routes IN THE FLAT. I mean its the easiest catch in football and his backs woyldnt reach up and grab them.
All in all, he looks like a little quicker drew bledsoe to me. He wont be a starter anytime in the next 5 years bcuz he is gonna need to change his throwing motion, and learn to recognize a blitz. But he could be a 10-15 middle of the pack decent starter. Hes a helluva lot better prospect than kafka. Im gonna make a prediction.
Foles will be our 3rd qb, kafka will be gone next year. And if edwards beats out kafka, he might be gone this year. Still dont like the pick, but i like the player.
