STEP TWO: Quarterback Jake Browning must pass over 3500 yards this season
Washington Huskies quarterback Jake Browning must pass for over 3500 yards this season. Yes, that’s in complete understanding that he is recovering from shoulder surgery. But this is not as much of a stretch goal as you might think.
You see, we covered the timeline of his shoulder injury, which is reported to have occurred during the November 19, 2016 game against Arizona State. So the 2016 statistics already incorporate a starting quarterback with an injured throwing shoulder.
In spite of these facts, Browning hurled the ball 391 times for 243 completions, 3,430 yards, and 43 touchdowns. So now, is it such a stretch?
New WR Coach Matt Lubick
Well that will all fall to new wide receivers coach Matt Lubick, who has taken over for former wide receiver coach Bush Hamden. Hamden, you recall, was hired by the Atlanta Falcons as their quarterback coach.
Lubbick has already made his presence felt in the recruitment of three solid wide receivers for 2018.
