Whoops, just checked the boxscore and he did go 15/25 for 200 yards 3 TD passes and a pick against Minnesota that year. Much better than I remembered. But yeah, I just don't think JT has the arm talent to open up top defenses.
What's strange to me in all this talk of him being this elite quarterback is that Braxton was a million times more explosive with both his arm and legs, and before that we had Terrelle Pryor and Troy Smith. I'm not saying that JT isn't our best option—I'll try to defer to the coaches, at least publicly—but if he is the QB position is something we'll have to overcome if we want to win championships.
