Sacks due to OL vs. Devito holding it too long

HewlettGiant : 11/26/2023 4:40 pm
In fairness, he is not putting the ball in harms way, but he just is not seeing the field.

Most of these record setting sacks in the last 3 games seem to be on Devito, no so many free rushers. But he is giving us a chance

Receivers below league average without healthy Waller.
We see guys open but he has people baring down on him.
He takes sacks but does not give up strip sacks
The recievers

Are among the top of the league in separation. It's not them.
Devito needs to check down

Should be able to learn when to check down.

Love seeing him find Hyatt downfield. He is worth developing. Interested in what he looks like after an offseason and training camp.
Some of those sacks are on him but I wish he could step up in the

Pocket. The problem is there is no pocket it's collapsing up the middle. Having said that at least he's not afraid to throw it and give his guys a chance.

Cannot recognize a crossing route to save his life.

On the plus side, he appears to be very solid throwing outside the hash marks.

is a serviceable line. We’re not starting from scratch there this offseason, despite all the doom and gloom about it.

He had 1 to Hyatt in the first was so unusual for his this year.....The play that really hurt was taking the sack on 3rd and 2 to give The Pats the one last chance.

The OL was fine

In pass blocking anyway. DeVito had either time or space and held the ball but didn't turn it over.

In the first half, DeVito was en fuego but his receivers let him down.

Needs to teach him throw the ball away, or just slam it at a receiver or defenders feet.

OL is below average, but even a good OL would have a difficult time protecting for as long as DeVito holds the ball. He isn't seeing the field well on many plays, which as I've said, isn't really surprising given that he is a rookie UDFA. The game is too fast for him right now.
TDV is surprisingly good with nice touch

But yes, I think he can learn to read defenses quicker with experience and time. The sacks were mostly on him today….I believe. Not an expert though.
He wasn't prcessing quick enuf

BB had alot to do with his struggles
But he missed easy check downs multiple times
He doesn’t process fast enough

but the interior (especially the guards) were pretty horrid today. There really was nowhere to step up.

4 Freakin weeks.

The guy has practiced with the starters for 4 freakin weeks and has had 6 TDs and 1 INT over the past 3 games. It’s far from perfect and not always pretty but it’s probably better than what 99% expected from him. Kudos kid … kudos.
best typo of the day

This brought hilarious images . . . .
He’s always had

Extremely limited awareness in the pocket as a college player. He’s a career backup going forward, but that’s not a bad thing. He’s filling in admirably given given his limited skill set.
