Burrow doesn't have Haskins' elite arm, for sure. But he's been impressive. Consider the context. He's a smart QB and puts the offense int he right positions to succeed. I've watched his games. He's the main reason they're 3-0 and have beaten two Top-10 teams. He just started working with these guys in June.
*His O-coordinator is about the same level as Tim Beck. So Joe has to overcome crappy play-calling so far
*His offensive line has not pass-blocked well at all. They had to game plan this week for him to throw within 2.5 seconds because those guys were being abused so much the prior weeks. A good portion of his incompletions are just throwing the ball away to avoid a sack.
*His WRs drop A LOT of balls. It was an issue in camp and its been an issue early on this season for LSU. Like 3-4 drops per game at least.
Still, by his own admission, though, he's not played up to his full capabilities. LSU was predicted to be as bad as 4-8 by some, 6-6 by others and at best 8-4. Most people thought it would cost Coach O his job. However, the only team remaining on their schedule that is clearly better is Alabama. If they play lights out, they can beat Bama but it's not likely. They have some other tough SEC West games but have a real shot in those.
