I don't know where people in this thread are getting the idea that Preston won't produce until we get a real QB. Like, Fitz does nothing but throw it up to his receivers with a chance to make a play. He almost always gets 200-300 yards, even we don't have much actual chance of winning the game. His receivers get a ton of chances and to his detriment he is always looking first to make a play downfield to his receivers.
Tua is a guy who excels at timing and field vision. Preston is a physical receiver, not a shake and bake guy, same for Parker. They love jump balls and contested catches which is not a key part of Tua's game, nor are many young QB's all that great at it. Those expecting better production will likely be disappointed. Benefits from a QB like Tua will come elsewhere, and that's when he's ready for the speed of the game.
I agree Preston is a less pressing concern now.It is quite remarkable that he is out there playing less than 1 year after his injury, surgery and recovery. Most players do not get back to pre-injury form (100%) for 18 months. Take into account the other factors already discussed it will be a slow start for him. I expect him to get better throughout the season. He is one of our less pressing concerns.
well after the game against the 49ers now do you feel , hes just coming back from knee surgery ,got to give him a little timeFor all the hype, this guy plays exactly like an UDFA. Hes a 5th WR on most teams...on the Raiders, he's on PS. Yet he starts for the Fins. He's a joke. A very bad joke. The sooner the Dolohins move on from him the better they'll be.
