Grading Andrew Luck’s 49ers Game + Recapping his Pr

eseason Andrew Luck’s final performance of the preseason was his best one to date. Throughout the preseason Cheap Quenton Nelson Jersey , Luck threw 32 passes (roughly the equivalent to one normal NFL game) and had 5 rushing attempts. The coaching staff did a nice job easing him back in with a lot of easy throws that catered to his less than 100% arm. Good or bad, it’s good to have Luck back throwing the pigskin.Linked below are all of Luck’s official throwing attempts and rushes from his Week 3 preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers.Attempt 1 — Short Completion to Wilkins - 4-Yard GainLuck wastes no time dumping off the pass to Wilkins after seeing it’s a zone coverage and there is no one around Wilkins. This is a smart decision on first down to make second down much easier. Attempt 2 — Short Completion to Ebron - 10-Yard GainThis is a pre-determined quick hitter type throw that Luck puts in the right spot and Ebron does a good job getting some extra yards.Attempt 3 — Short Completion to Hilton - 11-Yard GainThis is a “catch and shoot” type throw where Luck doesn’t drop and gets immediately set into his throwing position. He makes a great throw to Hilton on a 3-step slant and puts a lot of zip on the pass. He gets the first down off a great throw, which is a great sign. Attempt 4 — Short Incompletion to HiltonThis is a very good pass to Hilton that is placed in the perfect spot. Luck placed it in a spot where only Hilton can get it. Hilton essentially dropped the ball due to good physical play from the cornerback. Attempt 5 — Short Completion to Rogers - 19-Yard GainThis was a pre-determined read as the receivers stacked on a rub concept. Luck made the easy read and throw to Rogers who did all the work to get 19 yards. Attempt 6 — Short Completion to Hilton - 6-Yard GainThis is another quick-hitter throw to Hilton that he squeezes into a relatively tight window. Hilton does a good job securing the catch. I like the amount of velocity that Luck is putting on these passes, as these are the passes he will throw the most frequently throughout hte year.Attempt 7 — Short Completion to Ebron - 9-Yard GainThis is Luck’s first play action throw of the game. He takes a nice drop and sells the fake well. He looks high first and then takes the checkdown pass to Ebron on a quick out. He does a good job reading high to low and makes the right decision in the end. The pass was placed well and Ebron got a nice chunk of yardage after the throw. Attempt 8 — Short Completion to Daniels - 16-Yard GainThis is a variation of Spider 2 Y Banana, with Daniels being the primary read out of the backfield as a fullback. Luck sells the play action well and makes the easy pass to Daniels, who was wide open and takes it 16 yards. Attempt 9 — Short Incompletion to GrantGrant doesn’t run the best route and was covered well by the cornerback. He isn’t physical enough on the catch and the cornerback is able to knock the ball loose. Luck could’ve dumped the ball off to the running back, but making this throw to Grant isn’t bad because only Grant had a chance to catch the ball.Attempt 10 — Intermediate Pass to Ebron - 15-Yard TouchdownLuck made the throw harder than it had to be by putting air under it. He assumed that the nickel was still trailing him, but he stopped a few yards from the end-zone, leaving Ebron wide open. Ebron made the great catch to save Luck on the mediocre throw. Ebron was the obvious decision on the play and Luck made the right read for a straight forward touchdown.Rushing Attempt 1 — 1-Yard ScrambleThe receivers were well covered early on and with the initial pressure, Luck was forced to run up the middle. This is a safe decision on 2nd down early in the game.Rushing Attempt 2 — 6-Yard ScrambleLuck does a great job taking his drop, scanning the field for options, staying light on his feet in the pocket and then scrambling when he realizes nothing is there. He picks up six valuable safe yards on 1st down and was untouched. Rushing Attempt 3 — 5-Yard ScrambleLuck does a good time buying time with his feet outside of the pocket, keeping his eyes downfield and looking for targets. When he decides to run Nate Hairston Jersey , he takes a risk trying to juke a defender, but does so well and gets 5 yards. Rushing Attempt 4 — 15-Yard ScrambleLuck does a phenomenal job in the pocket with his footwork. He senses the pressure well and steps up into the open area. He scrambles well and gets 15 yards before taking a good hit. He’s making the smart, safe reads.Preseason RecapThe theme of Andrew Luck’s preseason was safety. The coaches called quick hitter passes that required little work from the quarterback and involved him making a bunch of short, easy passes. This is good for Luck as he needed to get back into the flow of things, so having him making a bunch of these type of throws will get him comfortable and readjusted to the game more quickly. Luck’s velocity looked a little off early on, but it looked on point on a few passes in his final preseason game. He’ll definitely have some early season issues with his timing on intermediate and deep passes and his velocity since it wasn’t given much work in the preseason, but Luck looks ready enough to play a regular season game. The arm itself looks good and his mechanics are on point and sharp. I was encouraged by his decision making and his awareness in the preseason and those qualities are in mid-season form. Smart players are very good at adjusting quickly so I’m not too worried about Luck, but if he’s a bit off on his medium and deep passes early on, it doesn’t mean the alarm should be sounded. The Buffalo Bills' offense remains anemic and turnover-prone. And their defense is suddenly springing leaks again.As if things can't get much worse, the young and patchwork Bills follow up their 37-5 meltdown at Indianapolis on Sunday by preparing to host Tom Brady and the New England Patriots next week — and in a prime-time setting, no less.Coach Sean McDermott acknowledged the challenge ahead by noting how the Patriots are far more accustomed to playing on a national stage such as Monday Night Football, as opposed to Buffalo — a team more familiar with early Sunday afternoon kickoffs."The better team you have, the more prime-time games you get Cheap Joe Haeg Jersey ," McDermott said Monday. "So yeah, you can say give them the advantage because they've been there before."And that was after McDermott noted how relatively inexperienced the Bills are in saying: "I've got a young football team on my hands."It shows.A year after ending a 17-season playoff drought, the Bills (2-5) are enduring the telltale signs of being in transition after going through yet another offseason roster overhaul as part of their intention to rebuild through youth.One of those rookies won't be in the lineup against the AFC East-leading Patriots (5-2), who are 31-4 against Buffalo in their past 35 meetings, and 7-0 overall in prime-time games.McDermott announced rookie quarterback Josh Allen will miss his second game with a bruised elbow on his right arm.That leaves veteran Derek Anderson preparing to make his second start some three weeks after being lured out of semiretirement.The 13th-year player showed some rust by throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble against the Colts in his first start in nearly two years.Despite his unfamiliarity with Buffalo's playbook and personnel, Anderson did go 20 of 31 for 175 yards, which marked the most yards passing by a Bills quarterback in four weeks.Buffalo's offense, however, is at best a work in progress no matter who's at quarterback, including Nathan Peterman, who lost the starting job midway through a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore.The Bills have scored just 81 points. It's the third-lowest total in franchise history through seven games, and worst since Buffalo scored 75 in getting off to a 1-6 start in 1977.The Bills have yet to top 20 first downs in a game. And the seven offensive touchdowns scored through seven games are the fewest over the same span since Buffalo managed six on offense to open the 2007 season.The Bills have been so inept, only eight of 22 drives have crossed midfield over the past two games. The Patriots Cheap Darius Leonard Jersey , by comparison, had six of 10 drives cross midfield alone in their 38-31 win at Chicago on Sunday."I think we'd all like to be out there posting 50 points (a game)," McDermott said. "That's just not where we are right now. So we just have to understand who we are, where we are in this process of trying to get this thing going in the right direction."The game against the Colts was the latest indication of how the Bills stand little chance of being competitive if their defense unravels.Though five offensive turnovers played a factor, Buffalo surrendered 220 yards rushing and four touchdowns passing — both season worsts. The Bills also forced no takeaways after generating 11 in their previous four outings.The Colts scored on their final four possessions of the first half to build a 24-0 lead, marking the third time this season Buffalo has trailed by 22 or more points after two quarters.It was an uncharacteristic outing for a defense that combined to allow just four touchdowns and had 15 sacks in its previous four games.Coordinator Leslie Frazier described the issues against the run as being correctible."It's disappointing," Frazier said. "We're trying to set the standard on defense, and we didn't play up to our standard yesterday. It was not playoff-caliber, and we've got to play better."NOTES: RB LeSean McCoy's status remains uncertain as he continues to be monitored for a concussion after being hurt on the second play from scrimmage. ... Starting DE Trent Murphy is listed week to week after hurting his knee.
