Kizer vs. Watson

Recommended Posts

Still early to say, but the numbers don't lie

 

Kizer thru 5 games - 50% completion pct. 851 yards, 3TDs 9INTs

Watson thru 5 games- 62% completion pct. 1,072 yards, 12TDs, 4INTs

 

Maybe passing on this guy was a bad idea after all..

Factory of Sadness continues..

Kizer - Duke, Njoku and Kasen Williams

Watson - Lamar, Hopkins, Miller & Fuller  

 

Deshaun is exceeding what I expected out of him.   But let's not ignore the quality of his supporting case relative to our own.

Wait, you mean football is a team sport and that individual performances are almost equally as reliant on the teammates surrounding you? 

 

Get this new age analytic phooey out of here

Interesting comparison but numbers can be deceptive or skewed, what would Watson do in Kizer's starts and vice versa. Some good quarterbacks didn't have exactly eye popping numbers.

Again Houston and Dallas were good teams with a glaring hole at quarterback so a guy that doesn't suck out loud will make the entire team look better.

Seriously? How many weeks have we spent throwing shoes at the wall next to the tv over all the drops? Some of these throws are garbage, no doubt....but mist of those drops are finger high. I mean cmon, we really dont know who kizer is because of the incompetence of this receiving corp

One has been a champion in HS and college. One hasn't.

Also, very interesting that each of their college coaches had polar opposite opinions on their draft status as well.

Kelly "he needed to stay in school at least another year and develop on and off the field"

Sweeney "you pass on Deshaun Watson, you're passing on Michael Jordan"

I was on this bandwagon too but they seem to catch Hogans passes just fine.

Hogan was hit as that ball was released. It still got to the receiver- just a bit high, an erratic pass that was 'tough' to catch, tipped to a trailing defender... sounds a bit like Kizer's normal passes. Receivers must anticipate and correct for the passes trajectory, if it's coming in hot and off target, it leads to drops. case and point.

Go actually 'play catch' with somebody. Out of ten people you 'play catch' with, 10 people will throw the ball differently. Out of those 10 people throwing the ball to you, one of them will throw you the most catchable ball and one will throw passes to you that are hard to catch. Try it sometime. Not all throws are created equal, measured in MPH or velocity of the spin on the ball when it makes contact with your hands. These guys are great pass catchers. They have been catching balls for most of their lives most likely, it's how they make a living... if so many players are having difficulty bringing in Kizer's passes- doesn't that tell you something about the way he throws the ball or maybe the angle of release, something?

Yeah. I do think there’s something to that.

So you think Watson is the second greatest player in history of the game? Please mr. Sweeney...

Is there anyone on the team that doesn't blow? Seriously, this is about as bad a team as I've ever seen in the NFL. I may not be some football geek expert but I've never seen a worse overall team from top to bottom, both sides of the ball.

All QB's throw picks. He was hit as he threw as well. Overall you can't argue the catch rate with Hogan in is around 80% and with Kizer a little over half of that. To me that conclusively puts a lot of the drop issue squarely on how and where the QB is placing the ball.

Texan fan here FWIW, I watched the first half last week of the game against the Jets.  Whats missing in the discussion of supporting casts is the contrast in O-lines, Houston's is absolutely in the bottom half if not bottom quarter of the league, the Browns on the other hand are clearly a top ten line.  I saw many drop backs where Kizer had all day to throw and he didn't find anyone, his throws were all over the place and he was quite frantic out there.  When Hogan came in you could immediately see the difference and how much better he was playing. 

 

If you have watched Watson, you see that he seldom gets good protection and he has to move around a lot to buy time.  He's often running for his life back there, but still manages to make good decisions for the most part.  What stands out about Watson, and what makes him good, and what is hard to quantify and measure is how calm under pressure he is as well as his pocket presence, escapability, and quick decisiveness.   He just seems to never lose his cool or get flustered even with guys all over him.  Also he isn't looking to run, he is looking to buy time to throw down field.  RG3 doesn't compare in this fashion, he was able to succeed because of his ability to run combined with the zone blocking scheme concepts of a Shanahan offense.  Its early and he obviously has to keep it up but IMO this isn't a flash in the pan type of deal because of the above mentioned strengths. 

You can't really dismiss Kizer, he looks like a rookie.  DW4 kinda looked like that his first game or so, but has quickly improved to a high level.   Also its hard to beat up on the Browns too much when DW4 was the 3rd guy taken and obviously no one thought he would be this good this fast.  But there is something about this kid, that is not so easily quantified or measured that sets him apart.  I think if they could do it over the Browns would have jumped all over this guy instead of trading the pick, but hindsight is 20/20. He wouldn't have lasted to that pick if everyone knew what we know now.  I can't really fault the Browns in their decision making, its just bad luck in a sense.

Howdy... Watson came into the league more ready. No doubt about that. What I am not sure about is how much better he can get. What's your sense of that?

See you, Sunday... if you tailgate.

Can't completely discount accumulating experience, but Watson's numbers took off when Fuller returned to the lineup.

So a hit from the front causes a ball to sail high and long???

I like Hogan, hell I liked Kessler..

But Hogan has more upside than Kess, but not quite the arm stength as Kizer.

 

Arm strength don't mean Sheet if you cant put it on the receiver. Hogan has that ability.

 

Now granted, lots of drops from Kizer's passes, no doubt, but ive seen him miss some pretty wide open WRs

Now Sashi won't have to hear the postgame comparisons regarding the QB that he GAVE Houston against the QB that he DID pick.
