    When Bentley makes a mistake it's more obvious because it typically leads to a turnover or the ball not being in the area where it needs to be. When an lineman misses a block the worse it tends to lead to is a sack, so it doesn't seem as severe. When a receiver drops a pass it tends to lead to just an incompletion, so that doesn't seem as severe.

    Jake has every tool to be an elite QB. If the entire Offense can limit mistakes as a whole, I think you'll see it.

    This is very true but all too often when it is the other guys that screw up and are responsible for the sack/dropped pass, the QB still catches all the shit because of it. Jake has had his short comings but I think he has been blamed for more than his fair share. Hopefully we can get it together and make fewer of these mistakes and win more games. I am getting excited for the season!!

    Or just the fans that have watched him be mr.inconsistent over his last few years.

    as a comment on twitter said. Jake is Mr.inconsistent, if they held this event next week he probably would finish dead last.

    now that may be a harsh comment, but Jake does have some issues playing the position I am not sure we will ever see go away. I hope they do, and we win obviously, but I think we all expected more during his career

    He'll go down as statistically one of our best QBs ever, but will be considered average because he doesn't have any big wins in his folder.
    He had such a good Nov. last year and then fell apart the last 2 games. Head shaker....

    I just hope our coaches are willing to give someone else a chance to win us some games if JB is bombing.

    Didn't realize until yesterday that Jake has a chance to be the 10th QB ever in the SEC to have thrown for 10,000+ yards in his career, and that he's also thrown 30 INTs in 32 games.

    This guy gets it. Everyone wants to blame Jake, but dropped balls last year cost us at least 1 game.
