well for starters Edwards (outside the drops). This year has struggled to make the tough catch. I'm not talking about the ridiculous acrobatic catches that he is capable of making, I mean the plays where the defenders have really good tight coverage on him. There have been several slants this year that he has failed to come up with, don't get me wrong they were tough plays to make but for a guy with his talent level they are plays that he should be making. He has also struggled (in my opinion) on some deep balls where he needs to stop and elevate over the defender to come down with the ball, he tends to drift a bit and doesn't go up as strong as I would like to see.


Deebo didn't drop any balls that I remember today in fact outside of the couple of balls that Edwards dropped and the one that Williams dropped I don't remember any.

Also, the same type of gameplan that people are saying made Scarnecchia look good is the same type of gameplan that made Bentley have his "best season" as a freshman.

Default Re: Bentley or Scarnecchia ?

Scarnecchia played a pretty good game given the circumstances. I don't know about giving him the start just yet but I think it's good that we may have a 2nd QB with the confidence to play against an SEC opponent. At the very least this should put Bentley on his heels for the rest of the season which will hopefully pay off with the on the field results.

He literally didn't. It hit the receivers hands and he dropped it.

Maybe not the best decision given the tight coverage, but he didn't throw it into his hands. It was accurate.

I don't see your point. In tight coverage, a QB has to be very accurate with his ball placement. No matter how good Edwards is, if a guy like Bentley is in there not being dead accurate with the football, the football is in jeopardy of a turnover. Jake's had like 10 INT's this year, and they all come from throwing balls inaccurately into tight coverage.

Scar had to be dead on a lot today. Credit Edwards with good play too, but if it wasn't accurate there's nothing Edwards could've done.

I'm not saying Bentley's leash didn't just get shorter but he should still be the starter.

You can't say that how many should be picks did our defense have just in this game? Should be picks mean nothing imho Jake actually threw 3 interceptions in to double coverage and hell knows what just last week his decisions plain suck. I liked the QB play much better this week than last and if whoever the QB is needs to be limited for safety than whoever starts let's do that.

Default Re: Bentley or Scarnecchia ?

I would like to see a little package for Dak. I don't know why you wouldn't throw him some time at wildcat when you can redshirt him anyways. At least get a look and see if he's got it.

No one thought Scarnechia would have had more than a TD pass, let alone 3...

....but yes, Jake gets the start if healthy, with Mike in the bullpen.

What I'm saying is they kept the plan very conservative for a reason and even with conservative calls the ball was still in danger a few times. The staff trusts Bentley more, considering we can't watch practice that should tell you something.

I say start Jake but we gotta tell him to take less chances. Michael did a great job of managing the game. He didn't throw a ton of bad balls today. He didn't really overly force much, he did a little at the end but he kind of had to.

I say start Jake but let him know it's a short leash. Very short. Michael can step up and drill those digs and curl routes.

Well I watch the games and Jake has been pretty bad against teams with a pulse. Not sure why Dak hasn't been getting any playing time. Scar played poised and not jumpy maybe just let him start the games for jake and jake can come in if he messes up because we can't have jake's offense spot a team 10+ points the rest of the season before the game starts.
