Regardless of your opinion of Watson. Can we agree on this? Maybe too many things to fix all at once. To justify paying the man 18 mill.
It is silly to believe can fix footwork, decision making, Accuracy, Mental mistakes, and a repaired arm/shoulder all in one year.
I think he mechanical issues can be fixed, and that will improve his accuracy as well. Now the decision making and mental mistakes need to get worked out of his game.. I see him being a very smart qb, but it's just those occasional brain [BAD WORD REMOVED] that he needs to cut out.
That said, I'm really not worried about his game and believe he can turn it around and be a very good qb. Really my one and only concern is will his arm hold up every season for the entire season, and I just can't say that it will. The thought that maybe we make the playoffs, and then suddenly he can't throw, has me concerned. It's that one concern over all else that has me saying I won't be upset if we trade Bortles and look to move on. Again, I feel Bortles has "it" and has the potential to be as great as Ben Roethlisberger, but if I can't trust his arm will hold up then I have to consider my options.
Your hate for Watson is unreal. The guy wins yet ya not convinced. Ya want a guy with lack of experience.
I don't really want either, but if picking a qb in the top 10 I'm taking Trubisky easily over Watson. Trubisky may be raw, but his skill-set gives him a chance for success. That's far better than a guy with Tim Tebow's arm.
