    Yep I saw 4 or 5 throws where he had a guy wide open for 5-10 and tired to make the more difficult throw.

    He hasn't forgotten anything. Pocket presence / management has always been a weakness for him. The same was true for Braxton, he just overcame it with physical sorcery.

    JT was miles ahead of both in this area, despite being less athletic than Justin and not close to Braxton. He must have turned about 70 sacks into -2 yd losses to positive gains.

    There were a few times today where the protection needs to hold up longer, but there were other times where he has to get rid of it. On that blitz briefly picked up by farrell, it looked like he was trying to pump fake to the intermediate route to free up the deep shot after. There wasn't time for that.

    A few of the rutgers sacks last week were on the qb as well.

    This. Justin probably is the most complete and athletically gifted QB we’ve had start here, but it doesn’t mean he isn’t without his faults. As dangerous as he is, he also isn’t the field general and commander we hoped for. JT lacked skill in certain areas, but he commanded the offense with ice water in his veins. He thrived on 2-minute drills and nail biting moments. At this point it looks like Justin is still reacting rather than leading when times get tough. Not a knock, but just proof he could use another year.

    Still one hellova QB and dynamic person.

    I agree with all of your points after the first one. I remember one of the best QBs to ever play at Ohio State put up a 4 of 14 stat line in his biggest game. Now that’s a bad game. Fields still produced, and only 1 of the 3 INTs was read/placement issue. The other two were so bad they’d be hard to repeat.

    He went out and tried to win the Heisman with every play early and it probably cost him the Heisman if we are being honest with ourselves. Theres not enough big games left for JF to have big time moments and the other QBs just have such strong stat lines with more games played too.

    A day later yes JF had a bad game against I’m sorry an (inferior) opponent . I think Day and Justin would prepare differently for Clemson or Alabama. Day probably spends time on CoVid related stuff that he never imagined. In 2011 Urban stepped into the defense meetings and though he gave them his fullback they rallied and improved ..Day might need to have a heart to heart with his D coordinators and the leaders on D.

    I think that's it! Read his press clippings and tried to do too damn much! Like a number of people have stated. There were countless times he had open men and instead looked for the highlight deep ball or stared down Olave, Wilson or Ruckert. Tighten it up for next week. Hopefully he was humbled and looks at film and sees his easy mistakes. IU had thr same game plan that VT had against OSU in 2014, blitz almost every play and live with the results in the back 7, and it seemed to work constantly

    These were the first words out of Urban Meyer's mouth in the post-game. We all saw it. Fields admitted it in the post-game presser.

    This is a kid. He operates in a more pressurized environment than most people on this site will encounter in their life. It must have been very difficult to come to that presser yesterday, yet he did so with grace and a level of maturity far beyond his years.

    He gets it. He had his worse game ever. He will learn from that. I hope fans will stop rehashing the same things now and move on, as he must do.

    JF gets a total pass because when he practices everybody’s open and not much of a pass rush.

    No doubt the guy is still an unbelievable QB and person. A bad game where he still went for 300 passing and another 80 rushing is something most kids would take in a heartbeat.

    I do think this basically squashes his Heisman though but maybe that's good for him? Maybe now he can go out and just get back to taking what's there.

    The only route I see for him is if he comes out and absolutely smacks NW in the title game and then whoever we get in the first game of the playoffs. The other kids are just so far ahead and JF really needed a good game yesterday.
