Let me get this out of the way first - what CJ did these past three games is absolutely legendary and at some point, a movie will be made on his life. He truly has a 12-gauge arm, decent mobility and the size to last in the NFL. He has already claimed his hero status with every alumni and doors will always swing open for him (just make sure to finish that education). He can be an incredible inspiration for the young people of today, telling the story of his rise from almost being tossed from the team to leading it to an improbable NC this season, through hard work and a change of heart.
Whatever CJ decides today is fine by me, because it's his life and that of his family. I hope that whatever he decides works out well him and he enjoys the fruit of his labor.
But, there is no way (something that he's already admitted) that he's ready to take on an NFL QB job after starting just 3 college games (agreed, they were extremely high pressure games). CJ was not the only reason we won those games. Zeke played lights out, the O-Line stepped up and the receivers took the ball away from defenders turning them from interceptions to touchdowns. OSU's defense also managed to step up in the final three games, saving their best to the NC game.
Suggesting that CJ is NFL ready, is suggesting that neither a healthy Braxton or JT would have been able to take the team to the title (which is ridiculous). CJ was third string for a reason and both Braxton and JT were the reason. Does that mean that Braxton (Heisman candidate) or JT (Heisman candidate) should also declare for the NFL ??
Are three games enough to determine whether a player is ready for the pros ?? Especially at a position like QB ?? I don't think so, but whatever CJ decides today, I only wish him success and happiness.
