Losman puts up good numbers

In his UFL debut last night former Bills QB J.P. Losman got off to a rough start, but finished strong as his Las Vegas Locomotives beat the California Redwoods 30-17.

Losman had a pair of first half fumbles, one of which resulted in touchdown for California putting the Redwoods up 14-3, but he led a two-minute scoring drive at the end of the first half which he capped with a 1-yard touchdown pass to DeDe Dorsey to make it 14-10 at the half.

He looked more in sync in the second half and threw an 11-yard TD pass to his TE Adam Bergen to give the Locos the lead 17-14 in the third quarter en route to an opening win.

Losman finished the game 21-31 for 226 yards and two touchdowns. I think deciding to play for Jim Fassel might prove to be very wise for Losman. In the first half when he had the two fumbles Losman was getting annoyed, but when he came to the sidelines Fassel calmed him right down, got him re-focused and he had an efficient two-minute drill.

Fassel has fixed other QBs before. It’ll be very interesting to see what he can do with Losman.
