Can EJ Run This Up-tempo Offense?

Knowing we were going to go through the growing pains with a rookie quarterback I question as to how much EJ’s capable of doing. Can he run the up-tempo offense this coaching staff has in place?

The first few games we seen him play was definitely good to see from a quarterback transitioning to the NFL. He seems like a player that can grasp information pretty quickly but delivering exactly what is wanted from this playbook is not going the way people wanted it to. Watching all of his plays he seems flat out scared at times. He decision making hasn’t been very good and he has gotten away with a lot.

My question is this offense to fast for him to run? The way this offense runs its plays is go go go but what about him getting a chance to read a defense and do some things that could help this team? The plays this team has run so far have been basic and he’s struggled. I think the offense needs to slow it down a little bit and let him develop. He has a couple go to throws that he can hit but after that it’s hit or miss. Everything from his accuracy to his footwork needs work but can be coached. He has the smarts and I believe can do it but this coaching staff has to see that he can’t do what their asking right now.

Look there’s no way I’m going to take anything away from that game winning drive because it was great but what would have happened if that didn’t happen? 0-3 and people lose hope. This kid has the smarts and talent but it’s up to the coaches to get it out of him the right way.

What do you think?
