Not everyone is. I saw flashes in the KC preseason game. And I posted about it after that game though it got very little raction. I'm no expert but I do watch a QB's head to see if he is able to go through his read progressions and is able to look off the safety. In order to be able to do those 2 things he must have an excellent understanding of the offense and be able read the defense correctly. Reading defenses and then choosing the correct place to throw the ball (as in single coverage) is the number one thing that will make a QB successful at the college or pro level. I saw RW doing just that in the preseason game vs. KC. He has obviously improved on this ability as the season has progressed, but he's pretty much had it to some extent all along as witnessed by his like 18 TDs and ZERO interceptions in the red zone this year. Russ will improve plenty over the years, but I for one am not entirely surprised by how rapidly he's got to the point he is at.
Oh and Kearly saw it after that KC game too so it wasn't just me.
