2020 Quarterback Competition

Recommended Posts

The 2019 season started with Martinez as the clear choice to lead the Huskers team.  He was a Heisman darkhorse as well, yet he struggled for much of the season across the board, but especially with decision making.  We saw some glimpses of what McCaffrey brings to the table, and I think its safe to say we will have a real QB race heading into the 2020 season.  What do you all think?

If the race includes Martinez, Frost will lose half the fan base

 

There is a lot of time between now and next season, but I don't think Martinez will be dismissed so easily by Frost.  We have 5 months until the spring game and 9 months til the 2020 season opener.

Depends on how much of a stubborn mule Frost is.

I’m afraid your right.  If Frost goes back with Martinez and he improves to actually be an average QB, that’s still not good enough in this type of offense where the QB is featured.  Martinez isn’t tough enough mentally to start IMo

Ego the size of the entire state. Wasn't gonna admit he was wrong all season. Better to just lose the game.

There are three guys coming back that deserve a shot at QB1, with another guy coming in that could grab it. There’s zero reason to let Martinez hold the reins without a fight.

McCaffrey needs to get bigger to be depended as the starting QB. He battled injuries playing in a limited role. I am excited about his athleticism and intelligence.

 

Logan Smothers will be the wildcard. He might be the best combination of runner and passer that Frost has recruited through 3 years.

My bet is AM will have procedures to clean up his shoulder and knee.  This will provide an easy fallback as to why his play was worse than last year

I’m concerned Frost is a head case when it comes to backup QBs because of his experience here. 

I believe it already came up in a presser earlier this year. It obviously impacted him and he's protecting Martinez. Detrimental to the team this season.  Hopefully someone he respects calls him on it (TO, Ron Brown) because it potentially will rear its ugly head next year.

Gonna be a long offseason in regards to this one. Have to think Luke improves his play and gains some weight too. At the very least I think he becomes 1B. Although that’s not good enough.

It won’t matter who the QB is if some other things, primarily offensive playcalling, don’t improve. We hear a lot about no fear of failure but the offensive playcalling reeks of it. I like Frost but he has been outcoached numerous times by coaches we would never consider hiring. His love affair with 2AM was baffling this season.
