    Last week I offered this thread to everyone to see http://gotitans.com/threads/double-plays-audibles.88334/, now this week I made another chart displaying exactly where Jake is connecting with his receivers.

    The encouraging thing is we've opened the playbook since last week and Jake's taken control of the offense. Jake still hasn't connected on any deep routes, his longest pass is for 15-yards. I hope to see a big catch vs the Falcons.

    Also, can our WR's catch the damn football!? I mean Jake went 12/20, but he could have easily gone 15/20 if we didn't have so many drops.

    Just to be clear, this isn't a chart showing the total passing yards for Jake, this is to show you where the WR's are making the catch at, all except 1 of these plays had YAC, if people really care I'll show the YAC, but it makes reading the chart harder

    Yeah, the 2nd preseason game was a good improvement from the 1st.

    1st game was all short quick passes

    2nd game was a good mix of intermediate passes and short/quick passes

    3rd game will hopefully be short/intermdiate with some long throws as well.

    Overall though, I thought the short and intermediate passing looked very good Sat night. Just need to get the WRs to catch better like you mentioned. There was only a couple of throws where jake wasn't on the money, and most of those he was under pressure. Jake definitely should've been ~75% completions if it werent for all the drops.

    I also made a thread re-capping every pass ... I put the YAC on every pass in that thread. Combine our 2 threads, and you will get a perfect breakdown of Jake's performance haha

    Jake did take 3 deep shots last week, but IDK who he was targeting, they were all bad throws that went over everybody.

    Wait.......

    Jake threw a beautiful pass to Nate at the pylon that should have been a TD. I believe that would have been at least a 30 yard score? Pacman made a great play to get a hand on Nate's hands as he was grasping the ball. That is a tough throw and Jake was money on it.

    Although it was mostly Nate just being a butterfinger...Poop Man had little to do with the pass break up.
