    Lamar - “really freaking good” pocket passer

    I was at the game on Saturday and remember some absolute ropes in to tight windows and also some head scratching misses (throwing 5 yards behind Hollywood on a deep out).

    This article does a great job pointing out just how far he’s come as a pocket passer and where his team also let him down...

    No arguments from me. He definitely threw some dimes out there and will get better. A poster from another thread said Josh Harris was on 105.7 the fan today and said he's planning to work with Lamar in the off season on driving the ball on the out routes. Good to hear.

    I'm surprised there aren't more comments on that link. It was excellent look at lack of execution, timing etc. Lamar is definitely further along than we all think. He's going to get better.

    Hopefully the passing game evolves. That with an upgrade with a WR and I think he takes another step.

    I fully expect more refined mechanics given his jump from year 1 to year 2.

    I'm confident the mechanics will improve but my concern is whether the talent at our WR position improves. Unless it improves hard to expand our passing game concepts that will maximize the skills of our WRs

    The Talent at the WR group already improved from 2018-2019.

    Dont you think a fully healthy Hollywood Brown and a 2nd year Boykin who should see additional snaps will already be an improvement?

    What is to say they dont add a free agent upgrade over Roberts or draft another early???

    Roberts was reliable most of the year, he had a bad game as did most of the WRS and TES Saturday.

    I think Decosta will definitely not stay complacent with that group. Roberts probably wont return.

    Great stuff.

    Several of the "good throws" Ruiz highlights, are also gifs that Fahey tweeted, viewable in the "rewatch Lamar" thread. Ruiz's gifs are better – I love the text boxes and arrows he inserts, to explain things – but Fahey's commentary is excellent too. The two pieces complement each other nicely.

    Lamar actually had a very impressive day as a passer on Saturday, shooting himself in the root with three shitty turnovers but otherwise only being held back by drops and spec teams penalties (thus lousy field position). The LaMaR wAs ExPoSeD takes were retarded.


    Thanks v much for the link!

    Right?!? DeCosta seems like the least-complacent executive in the league.

    Well I have no doubt DeCosta won't stay complacent. He shouldn't. I'm confident MB will take the next step but I'm not sure he'll ever be a true #1 that we desperately need. There's a lot more uncertainty around Boykins in my opinion. Sure he could improve but we don't have time to wait. If we can get a really good WR via free agency or the draft I say jump on it.

    Lamar was erratic.

    Our coaches panic and it filteres through the team.

    Our team flaws were exposed. Our WRs are.... Well they still suck as a unit. Our defense is soft against the run as it has been and we still falter in clutch situations.

    It really was a meltdown
