And one of the knocks on Peterman is noodle arm. He also didn't show much accuracy in preseason.

I keep hearing noodle arm, but in reality Peterman makes all the throws. 

 

This is just my personal opinion, but a cannon arm without the touch doesn't cut it in the NFL.

In the real world reality, in preseason, Peterman did not make one throw that shows he can make all the throws. Name one.

This is just my personal opinion, but a cannon arm without the touch doesn't cut it in the NFL.

 

 

What he does best:

  • Not necessarily a pure/smooth thrower, but possesses a quick release.
  • Consistent footwork. Plays with a good base in control and throws on balance.
  • Great understanding of defensive recognition and where to go with the ball with the given passing scheme.
  • Good ball placement on short/intermediate timing routes.
  • Anticipates windows in zone very well.
  • Sees the field clearly. Consistently shows the ability to get through progressions, eliminating a read quickly and moving on to the next with relative ease.
  • Great overall feel and discipline in the pocket.
  • Athletic within the pocket and can burst to pick up key third downs with his legs.

Biggest concerns:

  • Arm is limited.
  • Doesn’t possess natural power to drive the ball. Needs to coil up to gain zip.
  • Ball tends to finish low on the receiver the further down the field you get.
  • Lacks pocket poise at times tending to bail out right when unnecessary.
  • Feet can get a little frenetic when facing pressure.
  • Inconsistent decision making outside of the pocket or late in the down at times.

Bottom line: Peterman has seen his stock rise the more people find out about him. He is a very solid, steady player with a limited ceiling – but shows a great understanding of the passing game. His arm is just OK, but with his ability to see the field clearly and work through progressions combined with his natural feel in the pocket, he has a chance to develop into a middle of the road starter. He played in a system with a lot of jet sweep gimmicks, but has experience under center and working full field progressions in both the drop back and play action pass game. Peterman can step in and be a backup on most teams right now, with the hopes there can be tweaks with a few things mechanically and as he gets older to gain more strength in his arm.

Tyrod put the ball where it needed to be depending on the coverage, to score. Rook read it wrong and it happened the way it did. Rookie will learn from it. Haters will use it to hate on TT like they always do.

Donald Jones explained that Zay "flattened" the route to the sideline instead of "going high" to the back pylon.  Zay goes high, we win.  He should have gone high based on the position of the safety more to the middle of the field.  Given that the whole team said Zay will learn from his mistake, I believe Donald Jones.


Nailed it Dead Fred breh.

I voted drop even though I didn't think he dropped it.
 
I thought he blew the pattern which caused him to have to dive for it, otherwise he walks in for an easy touchdown. That is a different concept than the two choices, IMO.

I agree if he would've opened up to the in side of the field it's a easy 6 instead he turned to the outside.

I'm amazed Jones even got his hands on it looking at the replay.

Ill let zay ione say it:
Zay Jones: "That's a catch I've made one thousand times ... Ultimately, it hit my hands and that's a catch I need to make."
