So if you have been watching the preseason, which most of you have, you have seen the ups and downs. In particular from Trent Edwards. However, what do you call the ups? Was it his 10-10 performance against the Bears that resulted in no points? I was shocked when everyone was like "WOW, did you see trent go 10-10." Are you people (reporters) kidding? 8-10 passes were dump offs the Lynch for a 1 yard gain. He made one nice throw to Evans and thats all he has shown. If you look at Edwards numbers you are utterly amazed by his good completion percentage but you fail to look at the other aspects. His completion percentage stems from the fact he checks down to Lynch or Freddie an awful lot. Take for example the Cleveland game. After his ridiculous start, he checked down to Lynch every play and Marshawn almost single handedly won us that game, the guy is a monster and I love him. Trent doesn't make the big throws. If you watch the good QBs, the Mannings and Brady's, the Brees's etc... they all make big plays in every game. By big play I don't even mean a 50 yard TD. I am talking about a pass more than 15 yards (this is what dick means by not being timid). I would love to see the breakdown from Edwards on his completion percentage at various yardages. Where does he pick up his stats in regards to completion percentage? could it be his great ability to check down? I'm sorry but a decent high school QB can check down like Edwards (thats not saying a lot for Losman). Trent never makes big plays and hasn't even led the first team to any points. He doesn't take shots, he doesnt put points on the board and most of all he is boring to watch. He only put in 11 TD's I think last year, thats not great at all. I'll give him this year but I can bet this team drafts a Q.B if they are sitting at Pick 10 or higher (which they will be) and especially if they have a new coaching staff. It seems to be the trend to start a new franchise with a new franchise Q.B. I know this is a little early to be calling Trent a failure and that he won't do anything this year, but I just don't see him succeeding. Don't blame the O-line either, I am actually impressed by them, and thought that they would be worse. Those sacks Trent took were his fault in the last game, especially the one where he ran right into the defender and fumbled. QUIT DRAFTING THESE QBS FROM CALIFORNIA!!!!!
