    Absolutely. It has been one of the defining characteristics of his rookie season. I am impressed with his work ethic.

    You're right. He didn't throw for 300+ yards and 5 TD's, but he didn't need to. He did the things necessary to win the game. He is learning from his mistakes. It was, after all, his first NFL start. The rest of the players on the offense are responding positively to him.
    His mobility doesn't hurt either.

    First....how do you know we lose again without that call?

    Second, people here may not all agree on what you say. I am not worried about the wins/losses right now. I am happy that Lock finally got his due. and he did quite well for a first game. I gave him a B+, given his status and the results. Not a bad day....2 TD passes, and possibly a 3rd had Hamilton made that crossing route catch. But he was responsible, showed some mobility, and only threw a few errant passes. He has real zip, and that is not teachable. Plus I believe the team will play hard for him.

    As mentioned, I can not wait to see how many times he and Sutton hook up in their careers!!!

    How did he look under center? Something I've been curious about. I went back about 5 pages and didn't see anything about it. Thanks.

    I don't really remember him under center to much now that I think about it. I believe most passes came from shotgun/ pistol looks

    Honestly I never once cringed the times he was but I'm no expert . I think he did quite well , especially having those edge rushers coming after him as he rolled out. It wasnt much .

    Just fine, see for yourself!

    That's just his passes and runs, so you don't see the many times he handed off from under center, but not once did it look like he had any sort of issue with it.

    Drew Lock looked better than I thought he would. A solid C+ and I think he could have done better if not for some of the playcalling.

    20 passes from shotgun, 8 passes from under center. Most runs came from under center.

    I guess it'll be something he'll get more comfortable with and not a big deal right now. I was concerned about it in preseason, but it seems he's doing well.

    Thanks.

    Matt Waldman has a nice Twitter thread where he went through most of locks passes and breaks them down. Was pretty good listen. Shows the good and the bad including showing the bad on plays that ended good.

    But lock had a solid debut now just need to take the conservative wheels off and let lock go out there and throw some. We're ate essentially eliminated from the playoffs so we should let lock get some solid reps and attempt things more instead of going conservative.

    I counted eight or so times he was under center. It looked good at a glance but it would be worth going back and watching his drop back and footwork. Interestingly, most of his snaps under center were in the first quarter and then only three or so later for the rest of the game.

    You are so right. The Chargers have a pair of top level Edge rushers in Ingram and Bosa….plus James was out there, and has been injured most of the season. Those are 3 pro bowler types, and even though Heyward got called on the PI, he too is high level.

    The below quote is from the game day thread. It makes sense. It could apply to what you're saying.

    I don't know if Scangarello scripts the first few plays or not, but he needs to get better at calling later in games.
