I was at the game on Friday and here are my two cents from what I saw from Mathews:
He has a rocket of an arm, and,
Like most rookies, he tended not to work through his progressions but targeted one receiver each passing play.
My seats are in the fifth row behind the visitor bench so I get a good feel for the speed of the game (when the play is close to the 30 yard line) but I miss that overall sense of how plays unfold, especially in the other end of the field. I haven't had a chance to watch the game again PVR so I'm curious to hear what others thought of Mathews' play.
Mathews' tendency to telegraph passes makes the number of completions all the more impressive and speaks to his arm strength. I know that Sask's D isn't the same as facing Edmonton or Calgary but I was still impressed with his ability to thread the needle.
I think this kid has great potential and with Bomben and Fantuz expected back he has an impressive supporting cast.
