Why are you getting so hostile?
I'm not getting hostile, just simply pointing out (again) your propensity to specifically and intentionally misinterpret what is said, then turning around and claiming the same thing is being done to you when it is not.
I'd rather have an honest discussion than have my words twisted. I don't think that is too much to ask.
Here's your comment, which was implying that anyone who felt he could improve in the pocket was expecting "terrific pocket awareness".
I'm fully aware of the comment I made. I did not specifically attribute you making this type of comment and yet that was your way of excusing yourself for doing it to me. As for implying anything, you're reading too much into it.
I think he can improve in the pocket. I've said as much on my blog. You should know as you usually reply when I post it.
However, this is such a miniscule issue right now compared to the other issues leading to sacks, that I don't see why it is even being brought up as much as it is. It is typical kneejerk arm chair quarterback stuff.
It's like saying there are so many problems in our society and propping up movies with bad words as an example.
Standing tall in the pocket just for the sake of doing so will not automatically make him a better passer in the future.
How do you know he is doing it just for the sake of doing so?
And how is running at the first site of trouble going to make him a better passer in the future?
He's not letting the pressure faze him. I think that is a terrific sign and something that will help him grow more than getting happy feet when there is pressure.
Whether he runs or not, if this offensive line isn't fixed, he is going to get killed and it will stunt his growth.
