Two proven winners that have played QB, but only one of them IS a QB.
I heard Jameis also doesn't know the difference between who's and whose.
The snitcher was probably the same guy that holds the "Go Dwags" sign up on College Gameday.
This is not entirely correct. Remember, it's the most outstanding player on one of the best teams.
Larry Fitzgerald proved it.
I could agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
Braxton is still not a great passer. When we watched Guiton for a few games he would routinely (gasp) throw the ball to the best position for the wide receiver to make the catch. Guiton had touch, and his placement of the ball was impeccable. I can still remember screaming at the TV when Miller would scramble and run out of bounds BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE. As a freshman, as a sophomore, and as a junior.
I understand your argument about the wide receivers, but Miller has never been effective at throwing the ball to the correct position for the receiver to make a play on the ball no matter who was on the receiving end. Normally it was underthrown, which I know is on purpose at times, but not as much as Miller did it.
Last year we got to see a QB who COULD read the defense, who DID spend a ton of time in the film room; and it wasn't Miller.
I will be disappointed if Miller is the starter next year.
Normally I'd disagree, but watching Barrett utilize the zone read effectively (as opposed to Braxton's random use) makes me think it's possible.
At least two times a game the camera is following the running back and then it pops back to Barrett who kept the ball and ran for 10 yards.
If Elliot blocks like a man @ :52, Wilson probably scores.
Reminds me of early John Cooper / Michael Wiley.
The kicking game is unacceptable, and from what I've seen it boils down to coaching. I'm not sure if there is a coach for the kickers, but he clearly has no idea what he is doing.
His kicking mechanics are worse than Tebow's throwing mechanics
Not enough on the video to overturn the call, wouldn't have been changed had they called him out of bounds, either.
I fear this is one of those John Cooper years where you roll the instate rivals, lose to opponents you should beat, and beat at least one opponent you should lose to.
Agree with everything above. Spot on.
Barrett is the right guy for the job, he's just not getting any help.
Anyone want to volunteer to help create a resume for Tom Herman that we can start mailing to other schools?
Big10. Without a doubt the worst conference in football.
Is Herman mentally challenged?
Honestly, my biggest concern is Barrett's chemistry with Corey Smith, who clearly can't catch the football. Or run the correct routes.
It was probably Jerry Jones, and it's pretty clear he has no clue on evaluating talent.
Irony is your comment + your signature
What is a rocket surgeon? Is that like a heart scientist?
Another great article, which is completely unsurprising. A+
I think any throws asked of Barrett will be low-risk throws, maybe a couple deep balls in the game. I think people forget this new o-line is practicing against arguably one of (if not the) best d-line units in the country, so in theory games should be easier than practices for the new o-line.
I think special teams will dictate the day, with at least one return for a TD.
At times OSU has attempted the "12" personnel lineup but it has normally been flagged for doing so.
So I could've sworn a certain linebacker was #5.
I know, so we could get blown out by FSU! Brilliant!
Barrett sounds to be of the same character that Guiton was. We'll be fine, and we'll still beat TTUN.
I still can't help but feel the plan all along was to create a monster in 2015. Let's pray there's a quarterback controversy going into 2015.
Zero. People are acting like it's the end of the world. The talent on this team is John Cooper'ish.
I would hope that going into next year we have a battle at QB. That's the best possible thing that could come from this.
