Jones didn't play a full 2019.
Interesting tid bit. I honestly thought Lance would be last.
Some of the assistance Jones got from the offense shows up in this section, as well. Jones’ play-action / RPO rate of 53.03% is astronomically high. Even if we assume the NFL’s play-action / RPO rate is increasing, over 50% is not a realistic number in the pros. From 2019 and on, the only other QBs to clear the 45%-plus mark in this area are Drew Lock, Kyler Murray, and Tua Tagovailoa. That’s not the worst company, honestly, but it’s still worth recognizing much of Jones’ production came easier than other QBs, which is especially concerning when Jones does not have the playmaking element those other QBs had/have.
That’s not a true statement. Teddy was working his way back to try and become a QB in this league again. He had to show something in preseason before anyone would give him a shot. We needed a backup. If what you are saying is true, then the Jets would have considered keeping him. We would have tried harder to keep him and the Panthers wouldn’t be looking for a QB of the future.Bridgewater was a future starter for some team just like whomever the 9ers draft might be next year.
The point is that Shanahan purposely said himself that they will draft a guy who won't challenge Jimmy this year.
You're the one reading deeper into what is being said here, not me.
I take it you like to gamble. Andrew Luck was a can't miss prospect and he retired. We don't know but I don't even wager pennies.Have been wrong before. Will be wrong again. But at the risk of repeating myself, I offer these comments, though with varying degrees of certainty:
1. San Francisco will pick a quarterback. I do not know which one. If I had to wager, I would say Fields, then Lance, then Jones, despite the media stories over the last 48 hours that Jones is the choice. I would not wager much on which quarterback San Francisco will pick, but I would wager a substantial amount that the choice will be a quarterback.
2. I wrote only a few days ago that there was a probability that Jones would be available at 28. I still have questions about Jones, in part because I wonder what his production and performance would have been like had he played not for Alabama, but for Ole Miss or North Carolina or Purdue; and in part because most quarterbacks with his level of athleticism do not make it--Brady was a lottery shot. However, in fairness, a high percentage of first-round quarterbacks picked in recent years do not make it. At this time, because of the media stories having him going as high as three, I would wager, albeit a small amount, that he will not be available at 28.
3. I would wager a large amount that Mac Jones is not a future Hall of Famer (though I won't be around 30 years from now to collect or pay). In fact, I would wager a small amount that no quarterback picked in 2021 will enter the Hall of Fame, and a larger amount that no quarterback not named Lawrence will enter the Hall of Fame.
Why did the tweet even include the previous season? So it could include Trey Lance? Wouldn't it make more sense to compare their last full seasons?
The Niners have stated they WILL draft a QB. They are happy, they will get 1 of the 3 QB’s they feel confident in that will be their future starting QB. Jimmy G. does is not very happy, the article says.
My Ma always told me when I was a kid, “show me who you go with, and I’ll show you who you are”Chris Sims is friends with Shanahan and has the 9ers taking Jones as well.
