Well if CincyBuck says Cardale's deep balls are poorly thrown, it must be true... It is a little funny that he stalks your posts and then doesn't respond to that one.

Better than Harbaugh's pitch of speaking incoherently and taking his shirt off, I would imagine.

It isn't a negative to take advantage of a matchup... when you have your guy who is adept at making plays in single coverage you give him a chance. Cardale made Devin Smith some money.

Explain this embarrassing post.

Barrett wouldn't be able to go to the NFL yet (why leave to be a mid round pick with 2 more years of eligibility?) but Cardale would leave for sure.

A decent shot at playing in the NFL? He's a top prospect.

Pinpoint passes... Narratives are powerful things I guess.
Comment 28 Aug 2015

Well that's a different argument, and I agree we don't know for sure how he would do... I think if the guy can handle converting key 3rd downs against Alabama and Oregon and making clutch throws on the biggest of stages, he could handle playing @ Penn State or against Michigan. But, that's just an opinion I suppose. I don't think being outside is that big of a deal. 

You said I was "off base" saying JT was at his best when there was no pressure and no level of competition (aside from MSU), but then you didn't say why. You just said Penn State and Michigan were pressure situations, which fits my opinion since he wasn't very good in those games overall. 

Comment 28 Aug 2015

I don't really understand your argument here. Are you implying that JT's performances in those two games were somehow equal to or better than Cardale's against Wisconsin, Alabama, and/or Oregon? Or just excusing away the not so effective offense during those games? 

Edit: Btw, I agree with what you said, just not sure it does anything to disagree with my statement about JT being at his best when the level of competition and pressure are both not there.

OSU coming to town will make it especially loud I imagine. At least in the lead up to the game and through the first quarter or so, before it quiets down for obvious reasons.
Comment 28 Aug 2015

Cardale's physical attributes are superior and so his potential ceiling is higher, but sure you could argue that. JT could end up being the better quarterback when they're both done with the sport (both in college and at the next level), but I wouldn't bet on that. 

I think Cardale's work ethic and intangibles are really underrated around here. 

Comment 28 Aug 2015
I think neither has hit his ceiling, but the guy with the better arm and physical characteristics with less experience probably has more room for growth, generally speaking. These debates always turn into slighting the other guy, which isn't good. Once the guy is named I think everybody will get on board with whoever it is. I hope so anyway. Either one can win it all.

I was thinking Drake's freestyle would be the song for this and was surprised, but not in the good way... The lyrics aren't bad actually but the voice kills it. No offense to whoever made it.
Comment 28 Aug 2015
Most people that evaluate NFL prospects for a living seem to think Cardale's ceiling is really really high. I could argue that being able to grow and get reps against some of the weaker OOC and B1G teams on the schedule would only help him grow even further. It isn't like I think there is no merit to JT starting (the MSU game is the reason I would be fine if they go with him), I just would always tend to go with the guy who already got it done when he wasn't near his ceiling.
Comment 28 Aug 2015

Just a question for some that really prefer JT over Cardale (which is fine), is the goal not to win a National Championship? Didn't Cardale already show you that when he is the starting QB, OSU can beat the best teams in the country? 

He accomplished this with almost no experience in the most pressure packed situation you can imagine and against the best of the best. 

So... if we know for a fact that one guy can do it, why go with the guy we can only hope can do it? 

Also like any pro Cardale post I make, I feel I have to say explicitly that I like JT Barrett as a guy and a player so I don't get attacked. 

Comment 28 Aug 2015

Level of competition. Pressure. 

JT was at his best when there was zero of either of those. Michigan State is the one anomaly, although all three teams with any talent that Sparty played absolutely embarrassed them through the air.
