-He had a nice 35-45 yrd pass but the receiver dropped it.
-Release was slow and awkward
-He took a big hit in the pocket while releasing a pass that was returned for a TD but later overturned (tuck rule)
-It wasn't pretty but he ended up with no turnovers, a TD, and decent stats.
But I saw the whole game and ironically I said the same thing "so much for his new throwing motion". I get it's a work in progress but he was doing the same thing as soon as he got into the game. His release was a big slow windup, and I saw more then a few times the ball was well below his waist in the windup.
Kid works hard enough to continue to work on it, but he won't last unless that changes. He also won't last if he still thinks he can just bowl through defenders like College Football either. That last TD he ran in when the game was out I thought he broke a few of his ribs, guarantee he won't be able to take many of those hits.

by the way, im not saying that this is necessarily okay, but imo he's definitely progressed. made some nice throws and looked pretty good in the pocket. throwing motions can be fixed, so long as he's only used for wildcat type stuff during the year and has time to fix it, he'll figure it out.
