2020 Quarterback Competition

Recommended Posts


Let's see.... It's wait and see on the Martinez injury that bugged the hell out of him all last season and made it hard to perform the running game against the mastodons of the Arctic League. Smothers is in the same position as McCaffrey last year...not likely to do much but come in for mop up or in an emergency. McCaffrey seems like the solid #2 with a chance at starting and running the whole play book....but could get smashed like a bug and also be hampered or done. Vedral is gone. The new local recruit looks pretty good but is strictly a practice QB at this point.
I think we should stop obsessing about the quarterback position and focus on almost everything else. Our best receiver was double-teamed most of last season and may not even be back. Our other receivers were ordinary and not as fast as most DB's they came up against. Our O line improved but still looked like second rate patchwork. Our RB's need to carry the load and not just show up once in a while. We've always looked down on Minnesota; It's been 20 years, we should start looking up to teams that are putting it together against long odds and quit acting entitled. I hope our new OC is able to get the most out of our guys and instill some confidence whoever is at quarterback.

I think Martinez will get the job but the leash may not be very long if he struggles... I like Dylan a lot

The list in the article is indicative of what a joke the award is.  Don't get me wrong, I would love for 2AM or any Husker to win it. But, they list their top 15.  All but two are QBs with the other two being RBs.  

 

Sorry, a football team is more diverse than that.

I stopped thinking the Heisman was anything more then a popularity contest in 2009. Suh was the best football player that year and it wasn't close. The last time a defensive player got actual credit was Woodson in 97. They're trying to tell us a defensive player hasn't been the best player in college football in the last 25 years one time? Definitely a joke as it is defined.

I agree with you guys completely.  I just felt posting the link went along with the nature of this thread.  The job is AM's to lose.

You mean a QB actually needs protection in order to throw all the deep passes the fans want?

Frost LOVES seam routes...but you do in fact need some time.  I would imagine if the OL is better this season that you will see a lot of seam routes.

They were big plays all the time at UCF.

 

As for the clip, it really makes Hixson look bad. Late in the season and he gets whipped. Hope whomever plays LG does better.

To be fair, most clips make Hixson look bad.

True....that's the problem. Not only did you have a new center figuring things but Hixon being right next to him made the OL a hot mess.

Wilson on the other side of him seemed to take a step back from the end of 2018 without Farmer next to him. He improved as the year went on, but early on the middle three were just awful.

Oh no doubt. Big reason inside zone was terrible imo.
