As much shit as Goodson has gotten for the negative and no yard runs….Petras’ immobility was an equally big issue keeping the offense on track.There was a play yesterday (among many plays showcasing some mobility) but the one that stood out to me - some pressure in the pocket and Padilla makes a couple moves to buy another second or so. More pressure, so he scrambles outside the pocket. Eventually he throws across his body out of bounds.
That play encapsulated so much that's wrong with petras. Padilla didn't eat a sack, didn't lose 10 yards, gave another 3-4 seconds for a receiver to get open, then just threw the ball away to play the next down 7 yards from the first down marker.
We weren't asking for an all big ten QB, just better. And Padilla is better
