You can't post analysis without fanboys crying.
Irritating ad hom. Again, I was just pointing out as context that JT hasn't been a fan of Mac's since before the draft (sort of like you). You derided me when I said that JT blamed Mac for the loss, but at 21:21 in that video he said this re: the missed pass to Jacoby: "this one though, this is the play in my opinion that lost him the game"
A fair thing to say would be that Mac had an opportunity with the that failed red zone 3rd down play to win the game and failed to do so. And that's bad. But saying he lost the game with that miss betrays blame and bias. Obviously the Harris fumble was the closest thing to a game losing play.
I get that you liked the treatment that JT's analysis gave Mac vs (say) Lazar's. But don't pretend JT was objective just because you agree with him.
IMO, Mac played well enough in the first game for them to win.
IMO, in the Jets game Mac was ultraconservative and played to avoid losing the game.
IMO, Mac so far has been a below average NFL "game manager" QB and needs to improve a lot to become a franchise QB. But I also believe he has so far outplayed all the other rookie QB's in his class. I think that's indisputable.
I think the unknown is *still* about which rookie QB's -- if any -- will improve to "franchise QB" level. I have no idea how that will turn out, but of course I'm rooting for Mac.
