Monken: Winston's fumbles as "catastrophic" as INT's

Postby DanTurksGhost » Sat Dec 30, 2017 6:02 pm

We all know Winston needs to improve on his ball security. Despite missing 3 games this season he logged a worst-ever seven lost fumbles. He's actually worst in the league for that. Todd Monken says the QB fumbles are as catastrophic as INT's. Winston gets a well-deserved pat on the back for improving on his INT's. Let's hope that he takes a similar step forward on the fumbles. Shoring up the OL would help in that regard as well.

Love what I saw from him these past two games, despite I think being the only QB ever to post back-to-back games with a 130+ passer rating AND both games ending in a loss for his team.

Maybe he can work on making his turnovers look less catastrophic this offseason. :idea:

Get him a good o-line ....because they can't complain about his ints this season they look for other negative to point to distract from their incompetency as coaches. When will there ever be an article about the o-line, defensive units...getting him a RB....Its Winston this or that.

That's called being the quarterback. You don't get it both ways. You're so eager to call him a franchise quarterback? You don't get to blame his shortcomings on his teammates if that's what he is. He's supposed to make THEM better, not the other way around. And regardless, I don't care if you're his mother, it's pretty apparent that his fumbling is a big problem right now.

Funny he had only 2 in his rookie season and 5 I believe in his College career. He is known to turn it over but not with fumbles. The guy barely has 1 secs to throw immediately after snapping the ball.

I think the fumbles are partly a byproduct of Winston forcing the ball less. He will always have a never say die mentality, but at least right now he isn't forcing the ball. He is however holding onto it too long in the pocket waiting for something and that's making him a sitting duck. He needs to learn that after going through his progressions and nothings there, he needs to put 2 hands on the football, scramble out of the pocket and either run with it or chuck it out of bounds A-Rodg style.

Anything but throwing it completely up for grabs in the end zone or into quadruple coverage. Winston must really, really hate FG's.

What about today? IIRC all 3 of his INTs today were on plays where he had plenty of time. Can't blame those on the OL.

Hmmm. Interesting theory. Something I never thought of. Winston isn't making stupid mistakes, he just has no confidence in the kicking game.

From where I sat, he should have had a couple more INT's as well. But fortunately for us, he didn't. I really loved the opening drive. Had my hopes very high. It all fell apart, but they pulled it out in the end.

I wonder if we could borrow John Lynch to help us find some decent free agents this off season.

He started well and ended great. It's the highs and lows you get with him. He has to improve on his turnovers, no doubt.

But food for thought:
28, 15, 15, 23, and 19

Those were Peyton Manning's INT numbers his first 5 years.

Oh, I know. And I would have no issue with anyone back then who complained about them.

In theory, this is a silly comparison . If he slings the ball 30 yards and it's picked off, well at least that's 30 yards. If he fumbles behind the line of scrimmage, that's automatically worse. Given either could be returned somehow, but at least the pass was downfield.

Either way, a turnover is a turnover. Don't do either, and we won't have to message board debate the severity of bad.

Yea I forget who was the last QB to never turn the ball over? What's his name again, it's on the tip of my tongue....

Yeah, The Saints D straight up dropped 2 ints. Hit them right in the hands. We got lucky for sure.

Both suck and both are a problem. He definitely needs to work on his ball control. I think I agree on Kress though. An INT is actually an attempt, and many times isn't entirely on the QB. A fumble just like a RB is entirely on the QB and does automatically result in an advancement of the ball by the opponent. Neither are good. Both need to be corrected.
