Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence was profiled as a generational expertise popping out of faculty. Through 4 NFL video games, Lawrence is sitting at 0-4, throwing extra interceptions than scores and main like a diluted model of the long-haired hero with a Tiger’s paw on his helmet.

While the primary 4 video games of NFL play fall quick of a correct benchmark for rookie quarterbacks, the stark decline in confidence seen from these QB’s begs the query as to what modified between in the present day’s rookies and the greats earlier than them. San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana has a solution.

In an interview with USA Today, Montana spoke on the lack of mental preparation that QB’s are coming into the League with — suggesting up to date faculty soccer’s teaching as a system that coddles its play-callers.

“As a rookie you always think you’re ready and everyone wants to play right away — a lot of it depends on the sophistication of the offense,” mentioned Montana. “Having what it takes for that because I think a lot of these guys that you’ll see in college all of a sudden look to the sideline and teammates go, ‘Why are you looking over there?'”

Montana explains that and not using a developed acuity to learn defenses or deviate from the coach’s instructions, rookie QB’s are setting themselves up for hazard in opposition to skilled defenses. “But they’re telling him everything. They’re telling him where he wants to throw the ball, where the defense is. They’re giving them all of the information instead of teaching them how to do it themselves. Those are the guys that suffer once they get to the NFL.”

“You don’t learn to read defenses once you get to the NFL,” admitted Joe Cool.
