I was just thinking about how little he throws the ball, and when he does it is usually downfield. It got me thinking...he seems to hold the ball too long and eventually pull the ball down on many pass plays. I wonder if he almost purposely avoids the short 5 yard passes and only looks downfield because he thinks that whenever he decides to take off he can probably gain that much anyway. I was thinking about what Duane or maybe Dave stated earlier this week that he should throw the ball downfield more even if it is incomplete just to loosen up the defense. I think the same applies for the short passes. I swear I only see three or four per game.
Ya, and like last week with Wisc playing up on everything, he couldn't do shit. He needs short passes to keep the D honest.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Next year we will see what he can do. Just got to be patient. So far he is shit throwing the ball and when he isn't then his recievers are. Its like some conspiracy to stymie the potential for a passing game. Miller is a true sophmore in a brand new offense. This is his last year for a free pass. Next year he needs to produce more in the passing game because teams are going to key on him.
If Miller doesn't start producing in the passing game then he needs to start consider other postions because he won't be playing QB in the NFL playing the way he does. They don't run the read option yet.

He has made a huge leap from last year when you think about it. I think part of it is on the receivers and part of it is on Braxton. I agree with some set reads / quick passes, but also believe the coaches called a conservative game last week to not tip to much to TTUN.
He has thrown for nearly 2000 yards and ran for another 1000. Yes, he can improve as a passer but it's not like he hasn't been serviceable. Meyer said at his Monday presser that they felt a turnover could cost them the game with the way it was going. So I'm sure that message was delivered to Braxton and he wasn't going to make costly error.
Most teams would be ecstatic to have him as their qb. I watched Manzel against Alabama, he made some great plays but he didn't look any part of a polished passer, his receivers made alot of good catches for him, and as he moved in the backfield, they flowed with him.
We also don't know what Braxton's instructions are. It easily could be; make a few reads tben run if you see it.
He just needs to hit open guys...last year we left 3 TD's on the field at Michigan and the winning one wiht 40 seconds left to Posey! Also lets hope Jake-Stonehands gets it done this week for Braxton.
with Brax at this point it seems like its a long ball or a check down...he needs to develop the intermediate aspects of his passing game...I think with another off season in the system he will be much better I am not concerned about his progression.
