Then you factor in the injury situation - is he soft, or just unfortunate? With his disapearing acts its hard not to think he is just soft and has mental issues.
Joey isnt really helping his cause, but then again, he's not as bad as people think once he releases the ball - Joey is a decent passer. A lot of the problem comes from a conservative playbook - they simply arent going to stretch the field while Mooch is the coach there.
Coaching can't force Joey to throw within 10 feet of his WRs' heads.
Bottom line: Roy is talented, but he isnt helping himself on the field. He is extremely inexperienced and it shows. He is also in a poor situation with the offense that Marriucci uses and the QB who doesnt exactly help him. Fantasy wise - if you drafted him, and were a regular at the Cafe this preseason - you were warned. If you do have him, there is nothing to do but bench him until he returns - you cannot drop him and his trade value isnt worth it either.
Injury situation: too early to tell. Chances are doubtful for Sunday against CAR.
Agreed, bench Roy Williams until he is fully healthy again. Maybe Garcia heals quickly and will turn around the QB situation in Detroit. Joey can't hit the broadside of a barn every other play it seems. There is just no excuse for some of the terrible throws and lapses in judgement he's making.
For those lambasting Garcia's arm, I fully agree. But then again, he doesn't even attempt to throw the ball down the field. He scrambles, dinks and dunks, but very rarely will he throw it 20 feet away from an open WR like Harrington does.
