And I state this because there are games (Minnesota, Chicago) where his reading of the defense was not an issue. He made the right reads and hit the throw. Anyone who blatantly says he "can't" read defenses and never will are talking out of their ass. He has done it. The issue of late is he is thinking too much about where to put the ball. An offseason working with the coaches, Elway and his offense should fix that. If it doesnt, then we know it and we can go in a different direction in 2013.
I think that he went into a shell after the Buffalo game.
The coaches put him in a position to fail in that game by only letting him throw when the game began to get out of reach. Then the Bills just tee'd off on him.
