Default Jacobs

The Trib and P-G are both making me wonder just how much of Omar Jacobs we'll see. Both have reported that he's having a tough time grasping the offense and operating as a drop back passer. That's disappointing to read, but maybe the light will click on for him
soon. Then again...

At the same time I have not heard many good things pertaining to Boyd either. Gerry Dulac pointed out last night on Sports Beat what I noticed this past Saturday at camp (EDIT: Pertaining to Jacobs). He has a strong arm and his accuracy is solid but he's struggling with the basics.

If Shane Boyd is so accurate and has a strong arm then he should be the man to be our no.3 right now. Omar must prove that he is gonna be comfortable in the regular formations or he will Never stay in the NFL. Shane has always been a scrambler and that may be his best asset.

I'm sorry. I did not word my response very well. When I stated that all reports from camp and from what I saw in person last Saturday was that he showed a strong arm and solid accuracy I was pertaining to Jacobs and not Boyd. My apologies once again wedo, my wording was horrible....lol. I edited my first response.

Boyd's not going to beat Omar out for the third Qb spot. Omar will be okay,....he's got all the tools and intellect to get it done in the League. It's just a matter of him getting comfortable and gaining the confidence that only comes when your certain that you know the playbook front to back. He reminds me alot of Ben in certain aspects,....(with the exception of his release point),.....given a little time he should be fine.
