good decision making + elusiveness - too many erratic passes = B

that's what I chalk it up to

Default Re: Report for Jake Bentley through 2 games

I gave him a B. That one play where he eluded the NC State lineman and fired the ball to Deebo in the endzone was probably one of the best single plays I've seen from a Gamecock QB. He has us at 2-0, but I put that on Deebo more than Jake right now. Let's be honest, a little difference in how the NC State game went and we'd probably all be giving him Cs. I think there's still a high ceiling for Jake, just happy to be along for the ride.

I'd agree with the consensus. B to B-

He needs to be willing to hit shi and others on those quick shots in the middle off the line. He opts to go to the easier out a lot

He will get better

I give him a B but it's not over until Jake Brantley plays pro baseball or bombs Pearl Harbor.

I give him a C+. He has left some points on the field and he refuses to look at Edwards when in obvious 1v1 situations. I'd rather him give Edwards a jump ball than take a sack. But, he is doing enough to have us 2-0. I just expect more.

Default Re: Report for Jake Bentley through 2 games

Last year, he just came in and ran the plays that were called. During the off season, he has spent countless hours in the film room. He's also spent a lot of time learning much more of the playbook as well as various blocking schemes and reading defenses. So when a play is called this year, he has a lot more information to process. At this point, some of his mistakes are due to information overload. He's only played in 9 games, so he is still the equivalent of a freshman. He'll continue to improve as the season goes on, but unfortunately many fans were expecting more from him from the beginning. Having the first two games away from WB has been difficult and it looks like Roper is being very conservative with our passing game until Bentley gets more familiar with the entire offense. It almost looks like he's calling plays based on take what the defense gives us. Plus, he's being asked to get the ball out quicker. So overall, I gave him a B and am expecting him to get better with each game, especially at WB. Our team's success this year rests largely on his shoulders.

C.

He's looked pretty average so far IMO.

Maybe not a popular opinion but it is what it is.

I would have to go with a B. Definitely better than average.

Appears he is off to a slow start thus far as accuracy goes. Really want to see his 1st 300yard passing game and hopefully he will have several of those this year. B-

Really proud of him for spending all that time in the film room. Just wish he would have spent a little room time under some pressure throwing passes to the back of the end zone. I realize some are throw always - but many have just been ten yard overthrows. Plus A and B+ QBs hit wide open receivers and Bentley has probably thrown 8-10 just poor passes this season already.

He will get better but I think the pressure or the accolades have gotten in his head a bit. He needs to come down to earth just a bit and we will get us a very good QB.

Unfortunately you're correct. Maybe C+ as we've been winning but he's been average as average gets. 187 yards against that Missouri defense... ehhh...

Fortunately we have Deebo, but Jake is still looking like a game manager so far. The off-season hype and making a sophomore the face of the program may have been a mistake.

My thoughts exactly. Our offense has been methodical and effective thus far. Only the coaches can say with certainty how many plays he has effected with presnap adjustments. I imagine when these adjustments become a a part of his subconscious thought process you will see a big jump in his play.

Kind of reminds me of Shaw, early in his career. Took a bit for Shaw to figure out the game is about first downs first. As was pointed out, Jake doesn't have a bunch of games under his belt yet. Even with that, I can't see where any opposing QB on our schedule is significantly any better.

B

He overthrew too many receivers early against Mizzo, but he has made some spectacular throws in both games so far. He runs the team very well. He just has to control the adrenaline rush. We still can look forward to his best games the rest of this year and next.

B. Just because he seemed to be a little off on Saturday. But he's getting the job done. The scramble td pass to Deebo against State was an A+ play. One interception that I put more on play calling than him. He's played good and shown good poise and leadership. We haven't seen his best playing yet but we will soon enough.

Good points. He has to take the next step forward and show he has command of the offense. Especially if he wants to play in the NFL.

Obviously folks were being charitable bc we won the first 2 games. I'm guilty of voting B as well.

He's been less than good this season against 3 sub par teams.
