I agree with you to a point...

But his line has to block as well. That play, they didn't. Yes, the QB has to protect the ball. But when your in your passing motion, and the ball is ****ed all the way back, it is hard for ANY QB to protect the ball at that time.

For all the other times that he DID protect the ball while being sacked (he escaped to throw, or tucked and run), he did well.

I would give him an A-
