I guess we will have to agree to disagree, I still think JT is the better option at QB. ...Not the CJ is a slacker.
This CJ "arm strength" argument is starting to wear on me. I get it, he can throw it far...but so can Uncle Rico. I heard someone discussing this today and I couldn't agree more with what was being said. Wide receivers stretch the field, not big arms. The reality is that a 70 yard pass (in the air) means that you are losing in the final seconds of a game...there is no other reason for that kind of arm strength; not enough time for the receiver to get that far before your QB is killed either. JT's arm is fine and he throws all the routes well. He also runs the zone read better than both of them (God love him but Braxton decided pre-snap most of the time) and it is not CJ's best skill either. The reality is that JT beat out CJ once and thus it is entirely possible he will do it again. I don't think it will matter much either way as long as we don't fall prey to the injury bug but CJ having a big arm does not "stretch the field" unless there is a receiver open to catch it on a consistent basis...who fills Devon Smith's shoes? ...that's the question.
