The funniest thing about this pic is Cuddy was legitimately arguing that the pass caused Zay to open up his hip because it was off target.

Where is that hip open?  In that still photo, how in the world is the hip open?

BECAUSE HE STACKED THE CORNER!!! WHAT ARE YOU NOT SEEING?!?!?!

Singletary looked very good in his first pre-season game and at this point I don’t think we could expect much more. 

He had 6 catches his entire final season in college. He had 3 last night.

 

Catches the ball better than many thought he would. Good in space and just fast enough. As mentioned, won't beat you to the edge but definitely a chain mover.

The team didn't score with him in the game because Zay Jones dropped an easy-money TD and the kicker hit the upright on the ensuing attempt.

 

More brilliance.  I guess Josh has to catch his passes as well as kick FG's. 

 

Jones makes what should have been an easy reception and Josh finishes 7-11 (63.6%) for 84 yards (7.6 YPA) and a TD.

He opened his hips up after he bungled the catch and started flailing for the ball.

For the record, this post was directed to a poster that legitimately hadn't watched the game and was genuinely asking a question.

Dang it, I knew it might have been taken the wrong way.  I was also directing it at that poster and agreeing with you.

Yes...after the drop.  Cuddy was stating that the throw was the reason he had to open his hips up.  As you can see in the still photo at first contact with the ball,  if he doesn't bobble it...hip would never have to open up.

There's always a few who over think preseason.. 1st preseason game no real game plan and a few series is not enough to get into a rhythm or dust off some rust for a QB....  or an Offense...... Way too many nuances/continuity to continue to work out for a 2nd year O

Zay should have caught that ball and Josh should have hit him with a cleaner pass on the curl route the drive before. I give Zay a break because the sun was suddenly right in his eyes when he made his cut. 

 

That's 2 more completions (probably more because the curl route would have extended a drive) and possibly a TD. 

 

Plays are right there to be made, which is encouraging to me. They aren't way off. 

 

Still, I am worried about Allen. I am hopeful, I am encouraged, but I still am not sold at all.

Allen is never going to be a top completion % guy, IMO. He just isn't the most accurate QB and likes to take his low % shots down the field, but will make up for the misses with the big plays he hits down the field and his athletic ability, IMO. He really is a unique QB. 

This^

 

He is going to be more Donovan McNabb than Tom Brady.

 

He just needs to take the check-downs a bit more and actually start connecting on these deep balls that he loves to toss.

I didn’t get to watch the game but I kept up on the updates. 

 

I was excited and happy the team played well enough to win. 

 

 

Who gameplays 17 passing plays for Josh out of the gate?

Well you can't compare fairly completion percentages from the 80's to today's NFL though.

You can compare completion percentages relative to their peers, however. 

 

That’s really not the point though. For whatever reason,  60% has become some sort of barometer and it’s completely arbitrary.

 

Additionally, Allen throws the most low percentage passes in the league. And for good reason; because he can and teams have to respect that.

QBs also stand at different intervals behind the QB.

 

All I am saying is that Bodine has been playing almost exclusively with Allen for the last 40 weeks.  For there to me a snap issue when they was a change, is not unexpected.

 

Just wait till Morse gets back in and there are snapping issues.  100% there will be.  There was already issues in TC with Morse and Allen.

There is no possible defense for Bodine's over the head snap. He was likely concentrating on the next DT that was going to push him back into the QB.

completion % is totally over-rated. 

 

trent edwards is the perfect example of this, with his typical statline of 17/19 for 154 yards, no TD and 13 points scored on offense. 

 

His name became forever lowercase to me when he threw the ball away on 4th down and trotted to the sideline for his glass of warm milk.

Missing that as sarcasm was almost as bad as Zay missing that catch. It was a layup.

Yet another person that didn't see the sun hit him in his face.

Barkley looked like the QB that exaggeratedly fakes the snap way over his head on a sweep play.
