On another scramble he kept his eyes down field and hit Ed Gant down the sideline to draw a pass interference call.

30% against scrubs is pretty impressive.

Uhhh...did you watch the game??? Freeman moved us about nowhere. At least JJ could get a first down. That being said this thread is retarded from all aspects. Phillip Rivers wouldn't have done any better with that kind of protection last night.

\\\\\\\"This forum needs a poster like BucNY now more than ever\\\\\\\"

JJ does two things well:
Run
Throw the ball when given egregious amounts of time

He doesn't read the field well, he doesn't throw in rhythm and his ball placement is always iffy if a guy isn't a stationary target. He's a good enough backup and there's a reason he's a backup - like all backups he's not good enough to be a starter.

Exactly.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

Yes it is always far more beneficial rather than making a positive play to just throw the ball away or take a sack!  :o :-X :'(

I really question some of the replies on this thread and did people actually watch the game and the performance of Johnson.


Since San Fran has already inquired about him I have to believe at least some GM's think he is better than what they have!!


Oh and how on earth does Josh Johnson get that egregious amount of time?? :D :D

I'll give him that, but JJ doesn't do it enough consistently.  If he was far more consistent looking downfield he would as a whole be able to take his game another step up IMVHO.

JJ also had like 4 drops. He didn't look great but he was atleast moving the ball downfield with literally no time back there.

I agree, but it's hard to do when you only get a few dozen preseason snaps each year. Hard to improve that type of thing when you aren't actually playing.

It's also hard to improve when you weren't good enough to get a D-1 scholarship and weren't good enough to get drafted at any kind of respectable position. Some players just aren't good enough.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

he's better than at least 5(!) starting qbs that will be starting day 1. not that it says much, but there's always a need at qb somewhere in this league, and he's better than most the alternatives who aren't "good enough." All these "if's" and speculation about what he could be will become "when's" becuase at the very least, he's gonna sign with another team at the end of his contract. so we'll all see how he does the next couple years after this when given the chance to start. then we'll see how his passing ability improves or not and if he really can be a starter. All the facts and tape we have on him now are all for the purpose of a backup roll, so using them as an indicator of his starter capability doesn't mean much.

Hopefully Freeman stays healthy and we never have to see how wrong you guys are about JJ.
