hopefully, this thread will turn into the qb discussion blackhole thread for the next 8-9 months...sucking all other qb discussion threads past its event horizon.

If USC has to go with the young guys early next year, the offense is going to be an eye sore as they go through their growing pains which given what we have scheduled to return, would be a big disappointment.

If we have to go with Nosovitch and/or Mitch, hopefully it's in the second half of the season and we don't have much to play for.
IMO, Nosovitch or Mitch would have to absolutely blow Spurrier away in order to start next year. I'm not ruling it out, because we all know how Spurrier is with his QB's. Fifth year senior or not, he's going to play whoever is performing the best. I will say that I don't think the offense will be an eye sore if it isn't Thompson leading it, particularly if they have good springs/summers.

I certainly think that Nosovitch or Mitch have that capability, but I do agree that ideally you want a fifth year QB leading an offense that has the potential to be pretty freaking explosive.

Wait, I finally get the joke. its a trick question. Connor Shaw is the starting qb next year because our bowls on new year's day. (thats the only way this thread makes any sense before the season is over.)

No one is "confused" about anything. We disagree, and because we disagree Swaggga feels the need to say we don't know what we're talking about and he wishes everyone else was as smart as he is.

I have a few simple questions for Swaggga and his defenders. The answer to these will maybe help us reach an end to this discussion:

1. Define NFL Ready Arm Strength

2. Who on our team, Quarterbacks and anyone else that throws passes, has it?


As to the original point of this thread, Dylan Thompson will be given the opportunity to play in my opinion.

I want to know why Perry Orth has been omitted from this discussion. SOS has said numerous times, he's the best of the bunch. Any thread that omits him must be disregarded and started over.

I think you know there is no end to this discussion as long as there are people obsessed with only one facet of a typical QB's skill set.

And we both know what is quite obvious....most SEC QBs have enough "arm strength" to play at the next level. In fact we probably have 15-20 guys on our current team with enough arm strength to play in the NFL. You ever see the vids of MI6 throwing? Wanna bet Jadeveon can fire some balls? As posted earlier in this thread: Jamarcus Russell?

What has pissed me off is certain "experts" have used this mythical "arm strength" as some sort of measuring stick by which they used to bash both Connor Shaw all while ignoring how much Connor has played hurt the past 2 seasons.

And I fully expect it to continue until Connor Mitch starts at QB. So for now, the 4th string QB is the most popular player on some fans' team.

I agree with this. However I do believe Mitch is our QB of the future and will be one of the best we have ever had as long as he is mentally strong and continues to work hard. As much as Dylan deserves the starting job all season next year I think Mitch will take over as starter but Dylan will still play a lot

Dylan Thompson.
I highly doubt Mitch will even be ready, so forget that dream.

Nosovitch has a shot, but he is going to have to do a lot.

the real competition..Perry Orth (c'mon, we know Spurrier will say at some point in the spring, "That Perry Orth kid, he is doing better than everybody. He knows the plays, knows where the ball is supposed to go. Maybe we will give him a shot."

I am not sure we will have that hard of an offensive rebuild depending on how this next year goes. If we have a backup get some quality time in blowouts or games we should win, with a package designed for them here and there, that would be the biggest hit yes? David Williams, Jabari Smith, and Brandon Wilds (I think) will be ready to take the reins for a great backfield, and the Offensive Line doesn't seem to be taking a step back. The receivers, well, I don't think we're losing anyone we aren't bringing others in to replace by 2015, they will be young for sure but very talented.

What am I missing.

Me and you disagree on a lot of topics, but this is a topic we've pretty much agreed on the entire time I think...

However, JD can't throw...he looks like a girl when he does.

But I agree on all other points...

I don't care who it is, as long as they can take care of the ball, and manage the offense with an adequate amount of mobility.
