It's just true that going through your progression and reading coverages takes a while to learn and most if not all true 3rd year qbs are not there yet when it comes to that. I don't think there's any support for a narrative which says, unlike other 3rd year qbs Goff is unusually behind when it comes to that.

An exception was Warner but then Warner's 2nd year in the NFL (99 obviously) he was older and more experienced in comparison. His first training camp was in 94. By the time he was a starter in 99, he had been to 3 training camps, had been a graduate assistant for the Northern Iowa team, played in the Arena League, played in NFL Europe, and had been on an NFL roster for a year, plus was 28 years old. He wasn't this 24 year old, still maturing kid.

A more typical example is Roethlisberger. In his 3rd year, BR had 8 games with a qb rating below 80 (5 of which were below 60, including 2 in the 30s). In those games he had a completion percentage in the 50s 5 times, and also had only 5 TDs to 21 INTs.


BTW, please include who you're quoting when you quote someone...
