    It almost seems as though Jeff has now been coached to not leave the pocket no matter what... and he's got some terrible pocket awareness.

    Even the plays where he "stood tough" in the pocket I wonder if he just didn't see the defender coming and luckily got the ball out just in time.

    He just doesn't have a feel for the speed the game.

    Until the game slows down for him (and it very well may not), we're going to see these moments happen.

    The goal of the coaching staff is to limit those situations as much as possible.

    Once again he's a spread option QB- he's a faster bigger armed Tebow but we don't want to run that offense because Boom is stubborn and views offense as something to run the clock as opposed to scoring points.

    Funny how so many comments are about an untested freshman coming (like driskel) and few comments about why we don't have anyone ready to step up now.

    Small sample size.

    There was a study on this that showed that running quarterbacks have a slightly lower chance of being injured than pocket QBs.

    To be fair Jeff made some big time throws today and did stand tall in the face of the blitz. But the staff needs to rethink their redzone offense. He is good between the 20's but when the field gets smaller he has a harder time with his mental clock. Today his Oline didn't help when Miami would blitz and it seems that the staff could have dialed up a better answer for the blitz in the 2nd half.

    I think if they would of allowed Jeff to run when he saw nothing was open this game might of been different. Along with the Turnovers.

    I'm not sure if this one was but another examined D1A and NFL and basically confirmed the same thing.

    Not that it would really matter, I'm not sure why having a running QB in the NFL would be "safer."

    Look at the bright side. At least Driskel didn't transfer to Miami and beat us.

    I'll dig into it more, but NFL teams don't really run offenses where QBs have a lot of designed runs. So it's possible that a "mobile NFL" QB is less likely to get injured than one running a "college" offense. Just seems weird to me a running QB wouldn't be more likely to be injured when you run more plays where the QB gets hit.

    Interesting regardless. Thanks for the link.

    It was specifically dealing with QBs with a lot of designed runs. Regardless, the data is the same, college or NFL.

    Driskel = bad
    Wr = bad
    OL= average at best
    RB = see OL
    Def= good

    Mike Davis is better than any of our RBs.
    We need WG to win starting QB next season
    Pease is average at best

    WRs were actually generally good this game. They were open a lot. OL also pass protected well for most of the game.
