It's clear that he wasn't getting passes knocked down every time he let them go.

So sure, oftentimes he threw to his first read - because his first read was there to throw to. Should he have gone onto #2 when #1 was open? And you can try to argue that he was forcing balls into the #1 read if you want but that means 1 of 2 things A) You're wrong - at a 72% completion clip, he very likely had open guys or B) You're right...and he's incredibly accurate at squeezing balls into tight spaces to that #1 read.

There's not really room for anything else when the guy had a the completion rate that he had. Either his guy was open, in which case throwing to the #1 read is both expected and desired, or he's capable of hitting a flea off a dogs ass and was squeezing passes into covered #1 reads at a 70% rate.
