The Take on Turner
Here is how Ralph Friedgen broke down the performance of quarterback Chris Turner, who completed 15 of 19 passes and looked like a different player than the one who threw three interceptions against Middle Tennessee State.
“Vast improvement this week. He had two bad throws all day. He missed Da’Rel Scott on a screen play, which would have been a touchdown. And he underthrew Darrius Heyward-Bey on a post, but the next post was perfect, and Darrius made a good catch. His presence in the pocket and the way he moved in the pocket was very good. He didn’t hold the ball, and his decision making was much better, right from the first play on.
“We hit our first four third-down conversions, and three of the throws were excellent. You couldn’t do it better. Perfect ball location, perfect timing, perfect read. Played very well. Where he can get better is to sometimes put us in the right play in the running game. I think we missed two or three of those, and he has got to get better recognizing defensive fronts. I will take 10 more games like he played Saturday, and we will have a pretty good football season.”
