- He's gotten consistently better every year he's been playing. More accurate, less mistakes and more consistent.
- He can make all the throws regardless of the weather.
- His offensive line was pretty bad today. Many of the times he didn't even get back in his drop before there was pressure right down on him.
- With no running game to speak of, he couldn't just hand it off to a big bruiser to get him the short yardage, he had to hope that Austin would get free or that he could make it work. WVU relies on passing 100%, always have under Holgerson and always will. They should've realized before halftime that the OLine was struggling they should've put in a TE to help block or a RB/FB to block more often. That'll get alot better in the NFL because he'll be able to fall back on our running game and packages that he just doesn't have in WVU.
- His scheme that his coaches gave him was a bigger problem than the weather.
- Pressure, he didn't handle it well. He blew up at the ref after the safety, his pocket presence was poor, and he didn't get rid of the ball when he needed to. He had the unfortunate truth that he knew people would be watching. It was the last game before the draft, last chance to prove his game readiness and leadership. He put the pressure on himself, as did the hype, and he didn't play a great game. So Kiper and McShay will say I told you so and he'll have to make big waves in the combine and senior bowl to get the attention back.
The bad thing is we have to take a chance on someone. Geno, Wilson, Bray, Barkley, whoever we take is a risk. The only thing we can do is hope that whichever risk we take will pan out. The bad news is we're the Chiefs, and QB's don't normally pan out. But before we get to April, lets just wait and hope that Monday brings us a clean slate.
