Sport Frank Reich says building confidence in quarterbacks about going back to basics
Capitol Police officers issued votes of no confidence against top leaders following their response to the Capitol riot
Officers voted they lacked confidence in several top leaders, including acting Chief Yoganada Pittman, CNN reported.According to the report, no-confidence votes of varying totals cast by members of the Capitol Police union were issued against acting Chief Yoganada Pittman, two assistant chiefs, three deputy chiefs, and a captain in the division that staffs the Capitol building following ongoing turmoil at the police agency.
Because a trade to acquirewon’t be official until the start of the new league year next month, Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich can’t talk specifically about the team’s next starting quarterback.
But when Reich is asked about how to build up confidence in a quarterback, it’s pretty clear the subject at hand.
During his meeting with reporters on Thursday, Reich said the process of building confidence in quarterbacks, and players in general, is to start from the bottom.
“, always; the confidence level at every position, certainly not just the quarterback position. I think one of the great misnomers is sometimes fans think that these are the greatest players in the world…I’ve seen some of the best players in the world, everybody loses confidence for a moment,” Reich said, via Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan. “It may be brief, but it always goes back to the same way. One of the ways you build confidence back is you go back to the basics. You go back to the fundamentals technique. You go back to your basic schemes and you build it one play at a time. That’s true for any of us. That’s the way we’ll handle every position.”
Alabama QB Mac Jones: Throwback or dinosaur?
The last we saw of Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, he was absolutely ripping Ohio State's defense to shreds in the CFP National Championship in a 52-24 Alabama victory. Jones completed 36 of 45 passes for 464 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions, and…It was the crowning achievement in a season in which Jones proved to be unstoppable in nearly every possible capacity. In 2020, Jones completed 311 of 402 passes for 4.500 yards, 41 touchdowns, and four interceptions. When under pressure, per Sports Info Solutions, Jones completed 56 of 88 passes for 976 yards, 556 air yards, 13 touchdowns, two interceptions, and a quarterback rating of 131.4.
Wentz is in Indianapolis because of a disastrous 2020 campaign in Philadelphia that saw him lose the starting job with the Eagles to rookie. Wentz had 15 interceptions, tied for the most in the league with , despite only starting 12 games last year. Wentz’s 57.4 percent completion percentage was a career-low and just a tenth better than Lock’s for worst in the league among qualified passers. While Wentz isn’t responsible for every aspect of those numbers — injuries to the offensive line and lack of explosiveness at receiver also played a part — he no longer looked like the player he did in 2017 before his knee injury.
If the Colts want to get Wentz back into that kind of form, it make take stripping it down to the bare bones and building him back up from there.
