2nd year under gase, and by the middle of last year he was really starting to play at a pro bowl level. starting with the steeler game in week 6 he only had 1 subpar game (baltimore). his average qb rating in the last 8 games he played was 103 (for a little perspective a 103 qb rating for the full year in 2016 would be a top 5 rating behind only ryan, brady, prescott, and rodgers). i remember making a post on here during the 49er game that hes been throwing absolute darts, and if you give him time hes gonna pick you apart. i really believe if he didnt get hurt that would have continued the last month of the season and this would be the year we see him make the leap from serviceable qb to at least a top 10 and possibly top 5 qb with these weapons. too bad, this injury is gonna set him back a couple years, its not like hes gonna come back next year without missing a beat even if 100% healthy.
