I think Ewers underperformed this year. And it baffles me that Sark didn't put Card into the game to start the 2nd half against Okie St. and TCU where Ewers was having his two worst games of the season.
To answer your question, "when will he?" show that he is getting it, I think Ewers will be much better 1) as the O line matures and can pick up blitzes and stunts; 2) when Ewers himself is able to read disguised blitzes, thus audibling to a play that defeats the blitz; 3) when he gets more comfortable scrambling to gain yards when that opportunity arises.
I hope, if he is the starter next year, that his ability to hit the deep pass improves. For the Horns to contend for the final four playoff spots, he will have to hit the occasional deep pass. We have to be able to punish defenses that constantly mug the LOS in order to stop the run and defend the short passes.
