When you are the week to week starting QB you got to be ready, you have to be able to adjust and be able to accomplish the same thing but doing it differently.
When your role is the back up - you have to be ready to go on a moments notice and do it without the reps and practice with the starters.
Both guys are adjusting to their roles.
At some point, though, you gotta pick ONE QB and ride it out. Giving Jones a quarter and a half (as was the case the last two games) isn't going to work long term. Expecting JT to come in and spark the O w/ at most a quarter of play is just as counter productive.
Coach is trying to employ a two QB system without employing a two QB system. I'm not sure you can do that, and the early results seem to back that up.
I don't want to come across like this is easy, it's not. But the Buckeyes have two legit, Heisman caliber QB's who played lights out last year, and both are looking like the _ichigan QB. Maybe you can chalk some of this up to the coaching staff changes.? However I think the real issue is, neither one really knows what to expect, week in and week out and it shows.
