I’d say Aaron’s coach knows his quarterback.
… Bobo said Murray has shown “tremendous” improvement since his first season of anticipating throws.
“The interceptions we’ve obviously had too many of them,” Bobo said. “He’s done a better job of not taking sacks. We may not have ran as much and made as many plays with our legs. I think the overall process of becoming a better quarterback and going from No. 1 to No. 2 has improved. I still think we’ve got to work on going to 3 sometimes and sometimes knowing when to take off and then we’ve just got to be more consistent. We were more consistent than we were a year before but there’s still a lot of room for improvement.”
Bobo also said Murray can get a bit streaky still at times.
“It has a lot to do with his footwork,” he said. “He gets antsy back there and gets off balance. I don’t want to change him from him making plays with his legs, which he’s done some this year on third downs, but at the same time when you’re going to be a pocket passer you’ve got to be on balance when you throw and I’d say 90 percent of the bad throws he throws are due to his feet most of the time.”
Can’t argue with that. It’s good that they’re aware of what needs more work, but some of that antsiness is related to pass blocking and Murray’s trust in his offensive line. What that means with the changes coming next season with the departure of the three seniors there is something we’ll have to watch play out.
