Skelton: Good vs Bad

After Skelton's game winning drive stirred things up with everyones thoughts on our QB situation Here are some things to think about:

The good:

 

-Hits receivers in stride and on target  most of the time.

-Avoids pass rushers in the pocket and goes with the flow.

-Has a cannon and a nice release.

-Has most of the physical tools to be good.

-Put together a drive when it mattered the most.

-Poise in the pocket.

(comment if you'd like me to add anything else)

 

The Bad:

 

-Converting 3rd downs / 3 and outs. (not always his fault)

-When he does break away from the pass rush and he has time, he rushes things.

-45 Comp %

-Fitz doesn't get the ball consistently 

-Takes too long to make a decision.

-Doesnt put pts on the bored. (Our D has as many TDS as our O) - soo sad.

-Forces the ball sometimes 

-Just seems like something is missing but i cant put my finger on it.

(Comment if you'd like me to add to anything else)

*************************************************************************************************

Something else to think about - (Dont get me wrong i think Skelton could be a pretty damn good QB, but not for a few years.)

Matt Moore: 6'3 205 Carolina Panthers QB

Started in Week 13 for the Panthers 

They ended up going 4-1

Beating: TB, MIN, NYG, NO ------ Lost: NE

79 of 126

62 .4 Comp %

102.86 Passer RTG

8 TDs 1 INT

The kid looked good, and looked like he could have a future in the league. Then look at his stats this year... (D.A. Jr.).

No team had any film, statistics, or tendencies on him. I think once people watch film on this kid (Skelton)  they are going to be able to read him like a book. (Thats why there is a "Sophomore Slump"). 

 

I hope Skelton pans out. But i dont know if he actually will.
