6B - The Michigan Daily - FOOTBALL SATURDAY - October 26, 2002

The Michigan Daily - FOOTBALL SA'ruR:

Navarre's decision making
has improved* over his_
Michigan career;,lie has --
thrown just four intercep-
tions so far this season.
The criticism of Navarre
was always h is inability to
check off his primary receiv-
er, but his second touchdown
pass to Braylon Edwards
against Penn State typifies
Navarre's growing awareness
of coverages and his
improved vision.
Earlier in his career, Navarre
had a tendency of oetrwn
receivers. Now, despite an
offense that aims for him only to
throw in short-yardage situa-
tions, Navarre has completed 23
passes for over 20 yards. All
those overthrows? Maybe j ust
an incredible arm screaming out
for attention. ~
Navarre has trimmed
d w si c l a t s a osh d i g 1 8 p u inth e o ff s e a s o n to a r r iv e a t
a playing weight of 228
pounds.

this season. The pock-
et quarterback has
rushed for as long as
18 yards, and has
become more comfort-
able tucking the ball
and running himself.

Navarre's footwork
in the pocket has
resulted in just nine
sacks so far this sea-

the rush, and has
shown the ability to
throw on the run.
