DeVito's only issue is underthrowing some deep balls Archived Message
Posted by illiniranger on September 13, 2022, 10:35:55, in reply to "Maybe this was the coaching that Peters was getting but it's nice to see a QB willing to take risks"
he's too deep into his career now to fix that but he almost never throws the ball into trouble. if he underthrows it to an open player, ok, i can live with that. he's not throwing it into trouble very often and you love to see that. |
by throwing it into windows. Peters was seemingly worried more about avoiding INTs than recording completions. Devito seems to have more of a green light in this offense to make plays with his arm. Sometimes it blows up in our face, like his first throw vs. Virginia, but he's made some great plays too. And his TD:INT ratio is easy to live with.
Devito's numbers are against two P5 schools and a well-coached but bad G5 team, too.
Peters was giving us.
Devito's numbers so far are:
65/97, 67% completions, 622 yds, 6.7 ypa, 6 TD:2 INT, a 137.2 QB Rating.
if he does something like that all season we will make a bowl game.
