That's absolutely true, but any time he was put under pressure (a lot) he panicked, and either forced bad throws or ran backwards about 10 yards before being sacked/falling down. If it comes to that, throw the ball away and try again on a new play, rather than forcing yourself to try to make longer passes when it's now a longer-yardage situation.


Either way, now we get to see what we have in Stocker and Thomas, and get to see how Doeren and Co want to utilize either one for next year.
