I like what I see in Mike Reilly but I have a huge concern. He is not going to last a season or even a game given the way he is playing. My advice to him is when he scrambles and decides to run with ball, know when to go down. I've watched him play in both exhibition games. Yes, I realize he wants to seal the number 2 QB spot on the Lions roster and he knows other teams are watching. But it appears that the only way he is going to go down is if he is tackled, runs out of bounds or is pushed out of bounds. What happened to the hook slide after he's made some yardage? He refuses to go down unless 3+ guys are trying to bring him down. Who is coaching this kind of playing for a QB?
I think it is great that he tries to get yardage and I realize he's trying to make a name for himself but one sprained finger and he's out. Other players can play with splints and casts on their fingers and arms etc. It isn't the same with a QB. He just needs to get his bell rung a couple of times and he won't be able to think straight enough to call the next play. All players are valuable but some positions can be filled more easily. Not so with the QB.
I love this guy but like I say, he has to play smarter. He's going to take enough lumps getting sacked! Thoughts guys? Agree? Disagree?
