Had a bad game, it happens.
That's simply the result of how often he gets hit. He likely now feels that not only does he need to go through his reads, but he needs to look at the pressure coming at him every time because his o-line is letting too many guys through. He's probably beginning to feel pressure regardless of if it's coming or not because of all the "in the pocket" contact he gets. Any first year starting QB would probably do the exact same thing in that situation. Heck, it even happened to Travis Lulay yesterday until he settled down in the 4th.
As an opposing fan, I can tell that Reilly will be an impressive QB if he can get a good/average O-line. And that's not a problem Hervey can fix by throwing more imports into the starting line-up.
