Default Re: Starting Qb next year

I get the argument about the arm strength, i don't get why some of our fans are so naive. Swaggg is saying that this kid has a cannon, which is blatently obvious (no offense). For y'all to try and accuse him of being dumb because he considers Mitch's arm to be up to par strength wise, (again not accuracy,reads, communication, leadership, etc.) is a bit rediculous. I completely agree with Swaggg, Mitch can launch that ball farther than a good bit of the starting QB's in the NFL. It doesnt matter who he's playing, he could be in a corn field in the middle of nebraska with a bandanna covering his eyes with an arm tied behind his back doing jumping jacks, if he can launch the ball, he can launch the ball. Half of y'all sound like you're just looking for an argument because there aren't many gamecock sports on now to watch. Save the hate for the clemson fans, we're all pulling for the good guys here.

Can we move on from arm strength. It's obviously not all that matters when looking at a quarterback.

1) J. Russell did alright in College

2) I don't think Mitch is on that Syrup.

JaMarcus Russell

Awards
He had a productive 2006 regular season, leading the Tigers to a 10–2 record and a BCS Sugar Bowl berth. He threw for 3,129 yards, 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He was second in the SEC with 2,923 yards from scrimmage.

In the Allstate Sugar Bowl, Russell accumulated over 350 yards of passing and rushing combined and scored three touchdowns, leading LSU to a 41–14 win over Notre Dame. For his performance, he was named Sugar Bowl MVP.

At the end of the 2006 season, Russell was named to the all-SEC first team, ahead of Kentucky's Andre Woodson and Florida's Chris Leak. In addition, he was named an honorable mention All-American by Sports Illustrated.

No one is saying it does. What started all this was a couple people not knowing whatthey're talking about. GH asked a question and i awnsered it for him.

Also another example on the opposite end: peyton manning

Doesnt have great arm strength. One of the best QBs of all time

so we can agree that arm strength and potential doesnt mix well with sizzurp.

Were not talking about decision making, reading defense, anything else. Strictly arm strength.
Arm strength discussion involves throwing at various arm angles, while being pressured while moving around in the pocket. We haven't seen him in those environment outside of high school where the defense was actually trying. So I think it does matter who he is facing. I think the kid will be great, but he hasn't done anything to use the words NFL ready. No one outside of this forum is saying he has anything "NFL ready" for that reason.

All of that at the right combination will give a qb elite velocity.

Both if you notice QBs that can throw with a lot of velocity in the NFL.

Yes. However, Thompson will be the starter game 1 (barring injury) and I'm 99.999% certain.

Dylan starts, NOS, then Mitch. It's the natural order of things. Things won't change unless Thompson collapses . I really think the "Pennsylvanian" makes some noise.

Is this thread asking for a prediction? Because not even the coaches know who is going to be the QB next year yet.

Thompson will be the starter, but Spurrier still could promise either Nosovitch or Mitch snaps first game, like when he started Connor Shaw for the first half but said he would bring Garcia in for the second half vs. ECU in 2011

Default Re: Starting Qb next year

Love the pissing matches that are going on in this thread. What I can say after watching the spring game this past year is that Mitch does have the best throwing motion of the bunch. It is compact and powerful with a quick release. But those are the tangible qualities anyone can see. The intangible will have to be proven on the field. My advice to anyone who really wants to know how they measure up to one another before the beginning of next season would be to attend the spring game. In the end Spurrier will probably choose between Thompson and Mitch for the #2 spot with Nosovitch as the starter. This is assuming that Nosovitch closes the gap between Thompson and himself by next spring.

Don't know who will be the starting QB but I would assume and hope it is Dylan just because he has been in the battles....I would also hope that one or two of the backups get plenty of reps to prepare them is something happens to Dylan and to be ready for the following years....Our O line should be a strength for years to come so a good QB should have a chance to be GREAT ....

I was talking more or so about how he didn't accomplish anything remarkable while in the NFL. I couldn't name a no-name player that we never heard of because he didn't start in college because well...you never hear of them. I'm sure there are plenty of QB's at the college level with arm strength similar to Connor Mitch who were also 4* recruits who accomplished nothing in college.

Not saying he won't do anything, but my point was that arm strength isn't everything.

No one is saying it does, but at the time my post was made 25 out of 52 post between your original post - and my post saying that arm strength isn't everything focused on "Arm Strength" and "NFL Caliber". So I was simply saying let's move on from the arm strength argument since it hadn't gotten anywhere.
