He's plenty capable as a passer but can he handle the entire passing offense? It doesn't seem that way based on what he did when he was in there this year. And if that's true, I don't know if he would have done any better than AM did against that defense.He's
9/12 passing so he's plenty capable. Maybe not the whole ball of wax but enough. And better than Martinez probably. The running game it's not even close....he's the far superior option there. In fact, on pass plays you could dumb it down to 1 or 2 reads and let him create from there. Martinez had little ability to avoid a pass rush or to make something out of a scramble.
Point is...you had a guy who was healthy and capable and you stuck with the gimp instead. Doesn't seem real smart to most people. Even if he doesn't take all 21 carries that Martinez had...getting him several series would have been wise.
I like LM a lot and I think he has the potential to be a great QB. I just dont know if you put him in that situation.
