Sounds like you watched little FSU this year. His decision making improved big time this year. Accuracy was much better. YPC/A was highest in the ACC. Florida was his only
bad game of the year. NC State was mediocre. Saying he wasn't productive (especially this year) against some weaker defenses is pretty much a lie. Taken out of the first three games because we were romping other teams and we rushed for over 2,800 yards as a team. He was also taken out early in other blow out wins. His learning curve for the speed of the pro game is less than any other QB in this class because he has played in a pro-style offense with multiple calls and ability to audible on any given play. So, no.
