It's tough for me with JT. I mean, literally, every single play that the offense runs this year, be it a run, or pass, comes straight through him. If it's a run, he has to decide to either give the ball to the RB, or take it himself, and if it's a pass, he has to be the one to throw it... The offense is going to give him a ton of opportunities to make plays.
I think to be a Heisman hopeful you have to have a few of those "splash" moments, even if it's not a game where you throw 5 tds, maybe you only throw 2, but those two have to be impressive, and be "play of the year" type moments. JT didn't have many of those last year, and the ones he did have were forgotten because he was pedestrian in other areas.
I think the setting is there for JT to make a splash. They have the right OC, he has the right positional coach, playmakers as far as the eye can see, and an OL that should be better... It all comes down to him and what's happening between his ears.
My concern is that Tim Beck really was that bad as a coach, and he might have done irreparable damage to JT's mechanics and thought process for the position, we will see soon enough.
I'd say JT should be considered an early favorite, but I think of the early favorites, his prospects are the shortest...
