No, it’s because when Lock was on the field the offense was running the dumbed-down-for-Jared-Goff version of the offense that reduces the complexity of the reads for the quarterback, while when Smith was under center they ran the drop-back-read-it-and-sling-it-like-Matthew-Stafford version of the same offense.
What was the excuse last season for Geno looking terrible?I read somewhere that the reason Smith looks bad and Lock looked good was because they were giving Lock the easy plays and Geno the more advanced plays, or something to that effect.

I think there is a need for the perception that Lock has won the start if thats how it plays out. The amateur psychologist in me is thinking the best way to build Lock up is for him to overcome the adversity of the trade and a QB competition where he started 2nd.
