Personally, I discovered what people didn't know about Keith Holcombe. Following his start, I also discovered what people refused to learn about Keith. How often did you see people mention how much he was struggling with his metabolism and diabetes at the time? How often did you see people refer to his physical condition; football wise? A quote, "Keith was held together with duct tape and fishing line for that game." Yes, he was slower getting to his gaps. But, he was there. Afterwards we all heard about how people viewed him that game without any mention of his physical condition.
When it comes to Josh and his football savvy, he's been praised by the staff. The terminology used has varied but all revolved around being a "program guy." He knows his role and knows his assignments. While people complained about run fits last season you didn't see that problem with Josh. We never have. On the other hand, we haven't seen his ability to cover out of the backfield. We had our first glimpse of that Saturday—a big improvement there.
