Case has taught us to ignore the metrics and go by what we see on the field. I saw a lot, but I cannot compare him with the other QB’s in camp since they are unknowns. I’ll just assume the QB job is up for grabs and all will be given a fair shot, but it is King’s to lose.
So many want him to be another Greg Ward, but he will be D’eric King. Ward was a special player and it would be wonderful if King could be as electric as Ward, but as yet he hasn’t been when comparing both at the same point in their careers. Ward had an instinctive ability to know when to take off or throw. That is a rare commodity.
We have a new OC and, I assume, a new system. How each QB in camp will adapt to that system is still a mystery, so there are just too many unknowns right now. From what I gather, that puts more emphasis on passing ability and while running is an option, it is not a focal point for the QB as much as the read option.
