Forcier looked cool, calm, and collected inside the pocket and on the run, and he completed some nice-looking balls, especially his two touchdowns to Junior Hemingway.
The first touchdown, a 28-yarder on the Wolverines' opening drive, was especially impressive, as Forcier scrambled away from pressure and found an open streaking receiver for the score.
Also, his ability to avoid the rush and turn sacks into four- to five-yard gains is crucial to spread offense success.
His decision making was not excellent, as he tends to key on his main receiver and not scan the field as well as he should. However, as a true freshman he definitely impressed with his poise, leadership, and playmaking ability.
I see Forcier now as the undisputed starter, probably for the next four years, and as the next great Michigan quarterback once he improves his decision making and field awareness.
