Yeah I read a few articles where Fitchner has mentioned MR needs to pull the trigger and missed some throws. Mason also mentioned it as well. I think its a mix though we all can look back at certain plays and pick any QB apart for missing "open" recievers. So maybe Fitchner has taken the cuffs off and MR isn't comfortable enough yet with his group? If we think about it his recieving group hasnt really been a set group of guys and it has changed from game to game. First game Seahawks he had Moncrief, Juju, McDonald and Washington... game 2 49ers he had Juju, washington, Johnson, McDonald ( till injured) Grimble (till injured) Rookie TE (cant remember his name right now lol). Game 3 Bengals Juju, Washington Johnson, Vannette.

He has had to work with different guys every game. Thats hard on any QB not named Brady so hopefully now he has a set group he can start working out chemistry and timing with the various recievers. Just a thought...

I know it's early to say, but the knock on him coming out of college was that he wasn't accurate on intermediate throws. So far, what has he done? Easy, short passes and long balls which is his strength. I know it's still early and I believe he has the potential to become a decent QB, but I don't see a franchise QB in him.

To soon to argue with you. I hope you're wrong because all our eggs are in this basket. I keep saying the Ravens are a good test and I hope he passes it.

Yeah, I know it's too early too tell and I will be rooting for him to make it. He seems like a really nice guy and a good leader. It's clear that he's well liked by his teammates so he already has that going for him. He has played it very safe so far, but he can't keep doing that forever. So, I want him to see starting to make intermediate throws and throws into coverage. Sooner or later he needs to trust his receivers to make contested catches. Of course that doesn't mean throwing into triple coverage like Ben did Mason Rudolph - Page 2 1797695198

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2019/10/03/short-and-sweet-steelers-rudolph-focusing-on-efficiency/40241445/

Rudolph would love to take a shot. And he’s quick to point out he hit Diontae Johnson for a 39-yard touchdown against San Francisco and found him again for a 43-yard score against the Bengals. Yet he’s also not going to look deep just to do it. He’s learned quickly that the talent gap between Oklahoma State and most of its opponents doesn’t exist in the NFL. Better to make a quick read, throw it and move on to the next snap instead of hunting home runs all the time.

“We want to get the ball out,” Rudolph said. “We've got an unbelievable offensive line from a protection and run game standpoint. But they appreciate getting the ball out quick and keeping defenses on their heels and not letting the rush not really get dialed up and get back to me. So that's a facet of the game and there's times you've got to play action and take them down the field and we did both.”

Besides, as offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner points out, there’s no law against having a receiver take an innocent hitch pattern or crossing route and turning it into something far more significant.

“We always talk about catch short, run long where you've got to break tackles and make guys miss,” Fichtner said. “That's the way this league is. If you're on the field you're a playmaker, and you've got to make plays.”

They say he's a perfectionist and hates making mistakes. Maybe this is why we haven't seen a lot of lower percentage throws.

I don't think that's it because the O-line should be able to keep him upright. SHOULD BE. I think it's more about high percentage passes to get him comfortable and move the chains. I think this is the week that either Washington or Johnson or both have a good game. Mason has to trust his WRs to go after the ball.

A few updates. James Harrison chimes in.

Mason has left the hospital. Can't find the Tweet.

NFL says no cart was needed.
