You know what? I was happy to ignore the Allen thing.
I mean its not like im his biggest fan (Do a tank search), so i dont really care.
But as a sidenote? Hard to believe multiple franchises and college organizers thought he was "never an NFL prospect": Why all the NFL ppl @the combine (Heck why even invite him?), went to his proday, interviewed him, flew him in for private workouts etc. Lets just waste 100s of ppls time and 10s of 100s of $$s pretending he is.
That doesnt make any sense.
So that was kind of like "Meh, but ok"
But you lost me - completely & utterly
- with the highlighted part.
Being able to see the field better than someone you say "never was, never will be" an NFL QB isnt setting any sort of Bar. The richest man in the poor house is still extremely poor.
I wish Lock, his team, any FF owners luck. There are many reasons he might succeed, but if youve actually watched him, you should have seen his "ability to see the field" isnt
even a strength of his (whether compared to Allen or not).
Its a glaring
His upside is Jay Cutler. Needs a scheme and a HC willing to take the bad with the good.
