I wonder what it would really take for Joey to stay for his senior year? I mean other than a complete bust in his senior year (highly unlikely) or an injury (hope it never happens) I don't see much that would hurt his draft stock. He is at the top of the elite player list and I don't see too many people coming out of the blue and making him not a top 5 pick if he stayed. Based on how he trains and things I have read it seems like not only could he make himself better with another year but could help out the underclassmen (Nick included) to become the type of player he is. Here is to hoping he stays for all 4 years.
I know people are tired of the qb battle threads and that's fine but I personally don't mind posts about Braxton and his journey back to the spot light.
This would be awesome to be able to buy his jersey as a Bengal. I think they would give him the reps he needs to get better. I mean Bruce Gradkowski made the team.
Yeah I did some research on the supporting cast atleast those with major contributions from 2013 and 2014 and the numbers are very different. I believe with just Marshall, Thomas and C. Smith they added almost 1600 yards of offense and and I think like 18 or 19 Td's not counting those that returned in 2014 increased their output by almost 500 yards.

I'm going to go with Jalin or Nick Connor.
That is all we have to do at this point but I don't want to think about a time we don't have Urban here. Maybe just maybe we will have a fountain of youth by then!!
Correction made and I have no idea why my phone autocorrected that.

Glad to see that this night turn out well and be the non issue we all hoped for. As for Beacon starting I hope it works out, I have made a ton of comments about it, I am the type that likes surprises and hope that this turns out to be on of the close kept secrets that he is healthy and also a conspiracy that was set up to put him in a better position to win the Heisman and increase his draft stock. but as history shows I'm mostly wrong and don't get what I want.

Yeah but this has time and date and all my fellow 11wers get to verify it too.
Other can debate if they choose too, this was sticktly so I had a thread to come back too.

I don't always agree that he is too injury prone even though he has made some of my Saturdays horrible. I feel it has more to do with just the amount of contact he takes and honestly it will be more at rb or wr. At least at qb most plays he doesn't get hit yet every time he touches the ball in the other positions he will get hit every time. I support whoever they name the starter but based on my eyes and the past neither JT or Jones will beat him out if he is 100%. They didn't do it before so what is really going to change. Besides 63% comp % isn't bad for someone people claim can't throw.
For having some big name receivers come out of our beloved OSU the career yards aren't that high. Does that have to do with being more run heavy or just players leaving early?
I am probably in the minority here but I think with the culture and how the position rooms are, we won't see much of a drop off in leadership. As for Shutt, I hope he works his ass off and then comes and balls out as the starter.
Its hard to say because some are not in the position to display it all the time. From what I have gotten to see I would say Braxton because he did almost single handedly take us 12-0 in 2012.
That's great to hear and gets me excited.
Here is part of a post I did 2 weeks ago......Finally the last thing is when people talk about the WR's yeah we had some of the same last year but here is the thing, Barrett has 8 this year that play regularly vs 5 last year also the total yardage is 2300 last year vs 3100 this year and 7 more TD's. So for those that say it even it really isn't and bet Braxton would have much better numbers then we have seen from him or any other QB on our roster this year. If you don't believe what I put go look up the stats from 2013 and 2014 and you will see JT had much more to work with and Braxton did not have the same weapons.
Nice expensive dinner and a 12 pack
