Its almost like its week 1. lol.I understand trying to lay this on preseason as the primary blame here, but one needs to look to last year and the rest of the NFL this year to see that there is little correlation.
Last year we played great in the first half of the opener, this year just the opposite. No correlation there.
This year several great QB's and teams had horrible openers - Goff, Big Ben, Newton all played near the same poor level as Mitch and had preseason. Again no correlation.
The issue here is that Mitch needs to improve at a few things: timing, staying in the pocket, and not staring down his reads. The good thing is that it appears he only had these problems on a handful of plays, and appears to be breaking these habits, albeit a little slowly.
It would help if he had time to throw. When a DT blows up the middle at the snap not much mitch can do.
Whitehair/Daniels had a much worse game than mitch did, IMO. And we just signed dude to a 10m a year deal.
