His kicking game was great, he isn't as bad as people suggest. He isn't bad at all IMO. That Hess try was probably his fault, gutless act not to dive on the ball IMO but you learn from your mistakes.

I don't think he is a bad player. I feel like he is still finding his feet in 1st grade, figuring out what his role is. A good back up for Brooks.

I thought his kicks were pretty good, he's a better tactical kicker than Broses. Defensively mixed, he really does put his body in the right space, but he gets bumped a fair amount and he's not great laterally, lot of arm-grabbing then. Lawrence spent a lot of time mopping up JLJ's inconsistent contact on Hess, lucky for Jack that Hess also had trouble holding onto the footy.

JLJ isn't so great in open space, he's unlikely to really exploit a hole or throw a great pass. But as a backup he's alright, steady enough. You don't need flash from your ISP halfback, just some good kicks, not too many missed tackles and some direction of play.

A good Reserve Grader...taking his chance...

Has a pretty good win rate at 50% for us..correlation and causation aside..small sample space..
