    If he steps into his throws, his arm automatically comes up. IMO, that is a change in throwing motion. That's all I'm saying.

    Accuracy still an issue...

    I don't want to beat up on a rookie QB for a bad game but he hasn't been the most accurate passer even in more ideal circumstances. Even when he has time and a nice lane to throw in he will sail the ball or throw behind people.

    You have to be able to throw strikes out there and complete over 50% of your passes...

    On reflection,out of all of his starts this is the game that he has the most to learn from. We can't forget how much development he needs & get carried away just because we won a couple of games.

    He hasn't been asked to do much in the passing game prior to this game & unfortunately he got exposed by a decent secondary who did a number on him.

    There'll be plenty of tape for him to be shown on how looking off a reciever will get him burned. There were maybe 5 or 6 legimate drops that were on the WR's but he also had some poor throws that were off target & some that were thrown into where there were too many Jags jerseys near the intended reciever.

    Drew Brees has had more passes batted down than Vince & nobody is criticising him for it. Vince had an awful game but nothing to justify the crazy calls for KFC that popped up in the game thread.

    because he is still young. he didnt grasp the offense at texas until the near end of his second season as the starter... so basically the guy has got one good year of football with a watered down offense under his belt (although it was a very good year). if you watched him play two years ago you would see the smae things you are seeing now, the same reasons they almost moved him to wideout... but then one day... it just clicked and the whole country was drooling over his talent.

    its a BIIIIIIG step from where he was last year to be able to run a nfl offense. he'll get it. but we have to be patient. its not like he is our savior now or anything... I'll worry in a couple of years if i havent seen improvement. ... just remember he is a rookie that came out early and is attempting to run a pretty complicated offense.
