Default Which Team Has Best QB Situation in SEC?

Granted it's looking at groups of QB's, so I get it. But not even a slight nod at the end? Haters gonna hate ;)

I think Jake Bentley is the best QB in the SEC. Even better than Bama's. As far as groups are concerned, I really don't know, but I would say its definitely not us in the lead as far as groups are concerned.

Right now I think Fitzgerald and Allen are the top two with Bentley at #3.

I also think Bentley is the best deep thrower in the nation though.

Default Re: Which Team Has Best QB Situation in SEC?

Note that it is not the best Quarterback, it is the best Quarterback "situation". Which is a little stupid, but allows them to look at the back-ups also.

I hope Scar is a solid back-up, but UGA, Alabama and Aubie do have more hyped/bigger name back-ups.

Best QB situation implies the players and team around the QB

Default Re: Which Team Has Best QB Situation in SEC?

Even if we had 3 5* QBs backing up Bentley, with all of them having experience, IMO we'd still be rated low due to how poorly the offense has been over the last two seasons.

Therefore while we have some nice returning talent depth on offense for next season, and while most predictions have been that our offense should be improved next season, the overall "situation" of the offensive pieces surrounding Jake will be perceived by these sources as being further down the standings in the SEC....

Jake the Snake Roberts I mean Bentley will be all SEC this year. He is a special QB who will
bring back memories of Todd and Blake in their prime.

I would put Georgia's situation at "okay"? No more, no less ...

As #1 - Eason will be sold and even "really good" if he progresses.

My bet is that the 5* EE true freshman will red-shirt ... barring injury to Eason.

... That is because rumor is that Brice Ramsey is staying and he will be an "okay" back-up ... Georgia is very thin and very young at QB.

(Thank goodness for our RB situation to take some of the focus off of the QB.)

Default Re: Which Team Has Best QB Situation in SEC?

A year ago at this time we were raving at how much talent we had at QB. We had 4 guys that showed promise. My have times changed. Another reason why you continually add depth even at positions that you think are strengths. Injuries, lack of improvement and transfers can change the landscape quickly.

On a side note, I am not worried about Scarnecchia, smart guy, hard worker, perfect as a back up. Would produce if called upon. Hopefully he wont unless mop up duty in the Clemson game.

You have Jake Fromm "State Farm" - the name alone moves you up a few spots (What are you wearing, Jake Fromm "State Farm? Uhhh... a bulldawgs uniform?).

But the best QB situation has to be at Ole Miss. They pay the best. But maybe I am misinterpreting the criteria.

Ole Miss does have the best situation and the NCAA does not want to punish them but will suspend A.J. Green for 5 games for selling a $50 jersey only because he didn't lie about it.

This pretty much nails it. Maybe Bentley is better than the kid at Southern Cal, maybe he's an average QB at best or maybe he's somewhere in between. If the offensive line doesn't improve, no one will ever know. There's not a QB on earth who can have consistent success while running for his life or sitting on his backside. Not Brady, not Manning, not Brees and certainly not a youngster in college.

Hate to give credit to a Clemson guy

But you're right. A lot of the offense will depend on the O line. If you look at plays from last year, when Bentley has time, he can make extraordinary plays (go look at the bowl game). He can't when he's running for his life. And like you said, that goes for every college football quarterback.

With that being said, I believe we'll see a much improved offensive line. Elite? No, but enough to give Bentley enough time to make his throws, and to get to 7 or 8 wins.
