And welcome to another all 22 film room breakdown.
Today I got a little something different I'm not going with in Indianapolis Colts thing.
I'm in Indianapolis Colts.
God put something fantastic happened over the weekend that I wanted to cover for more than just Colts fans.
Hey, what about NFL fans? Miami fans.
Guess what to a tongue of.
I lower actually had his debut in the NFL against the Rams and that Aaron Donald lead defense.
Now, if you look at the stats and if you just look at just, you know first, look at what he did in this game.
But I went into the all 22 film room, look at these plays over and over and over and realized Whoa, Now we're putting a little too much on to a here.
We need to start thinking about what Actually, he did well, as opposed to just because the stats said this or he had this many incompletions or, you know, ah, bad throw here and there that he was bad.
At least I don't think so.
Let's see what the tape tells us.
shall we? I think we should.
The very first play of Tua's young career starts off as a welcome to the NFL and learning experience all at the same time.
Oh, my goodness.
Let's watch this place.
See what happens here.
And what's in Donald watching on Ah! Oh, good Lord, man.
He got absolutely destroyed on this play.
First off, watch Aaron Donald on this play.
This is this is just unreal.
Aaron Donald gets so much penetration on this play, it's ridiculous.
And to us not used to this kind of situation in the NFL, look how Oh my God, he just powers right into a steps up, tries to step up into the pocket, but walks right into the waiting arms of somebody else.
But that's not the learning experience that he has in this game right here.
The learning experiences.
You don't throw the football when there are people right on you.
Because everybody every defender in the NFL is taught to go for the football swing for the football in college.
This is not something that's taught on a consistent regular basis, but as you see right here, two is reaching out to throw the football.
Aaron Donald reaches out, slaps that football right out of his hand.
Now, in this situation, it would have been better for him instead of throwing it like that, to try to either flip it under arm or just take the sack because Ball security is so important in the NFL.
Asked Daniel Jones Also, When you're when you're tight like this, when you got defenders all around you, you cannot leave that ball open way out here like this.
It's just too much way too much of a chance of it getting swatted.
So he needs to find more space when he throws the football and be aware that guys are going after that.
All right on two was very next passing play.
That clip I just showed you plays an integral part in this and this.
This is a quick release play.
This is something that he goes straight to his hot route and gets rid of the football rather than go through his progressions.
But it's also play action.
Let's what's the play happen? Nice eight yard completion.
Very nice little eight yard completion now that play action helps him out dramatically because This is a blitz.
You got number 50 coming in right here, off the edge and quite frankly, because of the play action, watch how it changes 50.
It makes instead of 50 coming straight up at this point.
Had that play act should not happen, Number 50 would have been right here as to our throws, the football and he would he would not have been able to get rid of this football.
He would have toe bring the ball in, probably come up under, and then you'd have end up having number 90 or somebody in your face.
But the beauty of that is you got number 90 crossing over because he thinks it's a run play number 50 has to pause, and that allows to it at the time to get rid of this ball quickly, and he throws it right in a perfect spot for the receiver of the catch It it's a little low, but he led the receiver freaking beautifully, beautifully, well out in front of him as he's as he's running this route.
He catches the football easy pitching catch for eight yards on second down.
Now, could he have thrown the ball a little bit higher.
Yes, he probably could have, because the ball came in here.
The receiver had to kind of go down to catch the football.
If he got up a little bit higher, he probably with the lead that he had on the football.
That receiver probably could have caught the ball and continue to run and probably picked up.
Uh, not just the first down, but maybe a few extra yards afterwards because he had good separation from the corner.
This guy probably would have hit him, probably around in here as he come up along the edge.
Probably what it would have let him up about here, but he would have had a first down, plus probably five or more yards unless he broke a playoff.
This was a very good past, however, because where he passed the football on Lee, he's catching it, and if he somehow tips the football, it's going to the ground.
It's not going up in the air.
If it goes, if he throws it here and this is the ball, the ball will get tipped and you got the cornerback.
Sitting here, most likely is able would be most likely able to run under it and intercept the football.
So throwing it low on 2nd and 10 is not that big of a deal.
Because you're picking up eight yards, you're picking up eight yards and you're giving yourself third down. And two.
It's a very good play here by to a tongue tongue of viola.
Here's an incomplete pass deep left of Mike Kasicky and, quite frankly, it goes incomplete.
But this is a perfect throw by to, uh, I mean a perfect throat by two and gave Seki Just Mrs Just misses.
He should have went for the ball a little bit differently.
Let's watch the play turns throws.
All right, let's Let's look at the positioning of where this ball this ball is well out in front.
It would land here now if Kosecki instead of reaching for it right in front of the cornerback, where the cornerback, if you watch easily, is able to stick his hands right in between easily able to do that, stick his hands between and force the incomplete pass instead.
What gets sick he needs to do on this play.
This ball is going to be right here so what he needs to do instead, because the corner has positioned on him.
If he's reaching up for it, he needs to actually just wait for the ball to cross in front of them and catch it right here.
That way, he's using his body to block out the defender.
It make it difficult, more difficult for the defender to get his hands in there and rip the ball out and Kasicky gonna have this catch easy.
It would have been a great reception because this ball is placed perfectly.
He goes after the ball in the wrong way in a complete, wrong way.
No, He should have just reached out in front of him and called it instead because the corner is not looking back for the ball, so he won't know.
The only way the corner is able to get a play on this football is by sticking his hands right here.
So he never looks back at the ball.
Always doing is reacting to Kosecki, so he sticks his hands as he is taught to do in between the arms.
But instead he sticks his arms out here, where the ball's going toe land.
Just follow the football and let and catch it over here.
He'd have this past, and the corner would not have been able to get his hands in there.
This is gonna go down as a za bad incompletion onto a But quite frankly, this incompletion was on the tight end on this play to, uh, shows just about every single thing you want to see from a pocket franchise quarterback.
Now, obviously, to has the skills, not just to be a pocket quarterback, but on this he shows good decision making.
Quick reads everything you want to see.
Now let's watch this play and see how it unfolds.
Take snap Looks to the left.
Looks to the right. Those football.
First down, great play.
Just a fantastic play by two.
Uh, now he gets this play out.
He goes through all of his reads and throws.
A good pass Could have been better.
Yes, but I'll explain why? Why? That is afterwards, But, I mean, it was a good pass for a first down and did it all in under three seconds under three seconds.
Now he takes a snap and you got two guys.
It's getting readyto run.
Ah! Scissor route. Deep downfield.
Now. Right here.
He to adjust now Looks off these two guys.
Why? Because they're getting ready to cross here.
But as you could see, there is nowhere.
This safety plays this perfectly so that he's covering both these guys downfield.
He cannot throw to these guys.
These guys are covered.
This is an interception waiting to happen to be throws this way.
He looks them off, goes back over here now, as he's turning his head right now, turns it completely around.
Stops as soon as he sees him.
Why? Because he knows he's stopping right here at the five yard line and he's gonna come back. Just a hair.
And the corner has got two yards, the corners, two yards passing.
So as long as he doesn't throw right at where he's at, it's a perfect throw now.
Should he throw it a little bit more towards the sideline? Probably, But he's got a cannon for an arm.
So he just throws it really, really hard and up high so that only the receiver could get this football beautifully done.
There's no chance for the corner to get the ball.
Now. The corner does get a good lick on the receiver.
If he'd have thrown it out here, there's a good chance.
Let's let's go ahead and flip this on down and watch.
He looks over there, No one to throw to turns his head.
Oh, look, there he is now he's throwing the football.
Now he throws that football.
And as you see, he could have thrown this football over here and the receiver could have probably ran over here to catch it and maybe curl off along the sideline, avoiding the cornerback and possibly getting a touchdown.
But remember, As I said earlier, this is his first game in the NFL.
He doesn't have that perfect timing.
Playing against defense is that he don't know with his receivers that he don't know that Well, yes, this is Week eight, but he hasn't had in game plays, you know, full contact place.
So he's gotta he's gotta throw this ball where he knows the receiver could catch it and go.
So he does that.
He throws it, the receiver gets up, catches the football great catch, great play by to, uh, and man, that's just that looks good for a long term as someone who you want to be sitting in the pocket, dissecting a defense, making decisions, going through his route progressions and delivering the football to the right person.
This is a very, very, very optimistic play for the future of the Dolphins and to a tongue of viola by lower my apologies to I had a bad game to.
I had a bad game.
Let's watch a couple of plays here where, as I've already said, Tool was accurate.
It's heck in this game, very accurate, very good decision making.
He just wasn't helped by his receivers.
I mean, you already saw word.
Kosecki did not make the correct move to catch the football on a deep power out.
Let's watch these two passes by Preston Williams.
Let's watch this.
This is This is I'm not even gonna do this in slow mo.
Why? Because I want you to see.
Watch how this play turns out this is unreal.
How do you drop balls when you are wide open? Right here? Watch.
He throws his football wide open.
Why does hits him right in the hands drops it.
Are you kidding me? Oh, I would be so mad if I was to right here.
Throws his football perfectly thrown wide open.
Look. He's wanting to take off with the football.
Why did he even jump? Why did Preston even look at this? He goes up off the ground, leaves, leaves his feet to catch this football.
He could have just let he let look his speed and his legs were straight.
They would be on the ground.
He leaves his feet to catch this football.
Why? There is absolutely zero reason for that.
You know better than that.
Let's go look at your next play, huh? Huh? Huh? Two plays later.
Two plays later, third down and five, Preston just dropped that one pass on.
First down, they ran the ball, got five yards.
All they need is a completion here, five yards or more for a first down to has already put Preston's dropped behind him.
And that was the last past that he made.
Put it behind him.
He's like, you know what? If you get open, I'm gonna throw the football to you.
Why? Because that's that's what quarterbacks do.
Let's watch this play.
What was it? Oh, my goodness.
This is ridiculous.
Here's Preston coming across the middle.
This football is right about at his knees.
This is definitely a should catch football definite without any question.
Right at his knees right here.
This should be caught.
Could have thrown it a little bit better.
Could have thrown it right here instead.
Yes, obviously he could have, but this is still an incredibly catchable football.
This is something that presses should be catching.
Uh, 19 out of 20 times, 19 out of 20 times.
He should catch this football, and it's a first down guaranteed.
But what happens? Blew right out of his hands, right under the ground.
Oh, guess what? Miami has to punt to us. Bad.
He played horribly right? Oh, come on.
You gotta take that crap out of here.
I mean, my goodness, I've already shown you three plays.
That should have been definite definite, And yet he was just let down by his receivers.
Oh, guess what? I found a bad pass by tour.
I mean, a bad pass bond.
It's not I I don't put this on his arm.
I put this on his mind.
He shouldn't have thrown this football because his complete body was completely not set up to throw this football.
He put himself in a bad position to throw the football by throwing the pump fake and the pump fake happens because he doesn't see someone coming over.
Let's watch the play, see what happens.
There comes here.
And Donald Oh, way behind him.
Oh, my goodness.
That looked awful, didn't it? Now let's break this down and find out why that happens the way it happened.
First off, Aaron Donald is going to get pressure here.
And this is this.
Forces two or to throw this ball way off balance.
He sees dot First off. Here's Donald.
He looks over and sees Donald coming in.
He's got a receiver right behind this one that's getting ready to cut over, and he wants to throw to him.
Donald's in his face, so he's stepping backwards.
He doesn't have room to step forward and around.
He could have stepped up and around and then threw it this way.
It probably would have been a better idea because there is a lane here to throw the football.
But remember what I said in the first clip.
You don't want to throw the football when you are in close quarters with a bunch of other people.
Now he's wanting to throw this football to him, and he's got a pump fake because the cornerback is looking right at him.
If he throws his football, the corner is gonna come off his guy, come up, intercept this football and go to recognizes this at the last second, brings the football back down, packs it and goes to throw again.
Now he's still stepping backwards, and Aaron Donald is free of this block and is right in his face.
And because he pumped, faked, patted the football to get it back.
The reason he patted the football was to get that football back firmly in that throwing arm in that grasp of that hand because when you pump fake that football shifts just a little bit.
So we patted the football toe, reset the football in his hand.
Ah, lot of people's wondering, why in the world would you do that? Well, that's why you do that now, especially after a pump fake.
Now he's still stepping backwards, leaning back and throws.
You cannot do that.
You can't do that because the accuracy of your throw right after an immediate pump fake goes down slightly.
But when you're stepping back into the side at the same time with pressure in your face, that's even worse now.
Him throwing the football good idea on this situation because at least there is no one around him.
You don't expect an interception here.
At least it's an incomplete pass.
You don't think it's gonna be a on interception or a turnover.
And since there's a guy in the area Hey, guess what? It's not intentional grounding due Toa Aaron Donald in his face.
Him getting rid of the football in doing that actually is a good thing Now, could he have stepped up and around the corner earlier? Like I said, Yes, I think he could have done that.
I think he could have stepped up right now.
I think he could have moved up into the pocket and came out to throw this football.
But that's something he's going to learn by his quarterback coach because remember.
Like I said, coaching in the NFL is much different than coaching in college.
He's got the legs to do it.
Let's teach him how to do that.
Let's teach him, Hey, don't make your throw off your back foot.
Make sure you're able to step into that baby and find a way of doing it.
Last play of two on this game against the Rams in his initial debut, and it is another incompletion.
And this is not on two of us this perfectly.
This is a combination of the receiver not securing the football and great break on the ball by the defense of player.
Let's watch the play as it unfolds.
They're bam! What? Really? Wow.
So to, uh, actually releases the football.
The Rams were playing zone defense right now to recognizes the zone.
The receiver recognizes the zone.
The receiver goes to the open spot of the zone and before he even stops to, uh, throws the football before he even look right here, he's coming over to the side who was looking.
He doesn't even stop yet.
He's getting ready to stop, but he's just already throwing the football and a rocket to him.
Plenty of space here, plenty of space.
But the corner is breaking hard.
Coming back on the receiver now right there.
You see that he should have caught that football and secured it perfectly.
That ball is thrown beautifully.
Hits him right in the basket right here.
Now watch good break on the ball, he comes up raps, but the receiver does not pull the ball in high and tight like he's supposed to.
It's down around his midsection, which is why the ball comes out on the tackle.
It's not tight yet.
He needs to bring this up higher.
He needs to bring that elbow up and bring this ball in high and tight.
He's too worried about breaking with the football after catching it rather than securing it.
You only needed two yards on this play.
This is guaranteed to yards.
This is the first down.
This would have moved the change, but the receiver did not secure it fully, and when he got hit, the ball comes out and yet it's another incompletion onto a stat sheet.
Now, as I've shown you to a actually for the majority of this game, played very well.
The Miami Dolphins did not rely on to a knowing Hey, you know what? To, uh, this is his first game, man.
We want to ease the man.
We're not going to give them too many passes toe have to throw.
Okay, We're gonna ease him, especially against this defense.
So they easy, man on Lee, Give them a few passes in orderto, you know, break him in.
They're gonna run a lot of wild cat stuff with running backs with Gaskins and all of them.
And but to a does his job well, and to me, that thinks to ah, is going to be an excellent quarterback in the NFL as long as the receivers don't let him down.
Way too many drops.
Way too many drops in his debut.
He should have been well up over 70% completion percentage in this game if it wasn't for the drops, the bad drops that we've seen.
So that narrative that to a played horribly and and this first game against the Rams, it's a bad narrative.
It's a terrible narrative.
Don't believe a word that you think in that It's all about this right here.
this right here.
Receivers not securing the football, making sure that they catch it.
Receivers not going after the football in a way they should just wait.
You'll see two is gonna be a heck of a quarterback in the NFL.
So, as you can see to actually played quite well.
But he was let down by a lot of his players.
Yes, he had some serious issues with the fact that his, um, he hasn't actually played much in the NFL, and he still has to get that down with his rest of his team on, you know, routes and timing and that kind of nature.
But, my goodness, there was at least six passes that should have been caught in this game by his receivers.
Six catches, at least 70 yards left on the field.
So instead of having a 12 for 22 93 yards and a touchdown stat line, he should have had a more like 18 of 22 for about 160 yards and a touchdown.
And that would have been a much better look for to a ton of I buy low.
Uh, now, while I'm here, I want to Thank messy.
