Never thought I’d type something like this, but Jake Fromm needs to up his game down the stretch. Check out his seasonal breakdown:
Like it or not, his performance has been in steady decline over the course of this year. His completion percentage has dropped each month. His yards per attempt are down significantly. All of that is reflected in his passer rating, which was subpar in October and is just slightly above water this month. Interestingly enough, the one thing that’s up are his passing attempts.
I don’t know what’s fair to chalk that up to — playcalling and inexperience in the receiving corps come to mind, but Fromm’s also been a little inconsistent with his throws at times, too.
I also don’t want to make overly much of this. Yes, he played a significant role in the South Carolina loss, but he’s made his share of big time throws in October and November, too.
It just feels like his team’s gonna need more from him, especially in the next two games.
