This topic assumes JT gets the starting nod, which is not 100 percent certain. Vad showed he had an athletic edge on Washington in 2012. He could make something from nothing at times. He ran with abandon and had an arm strong enough to get the ball deep down field. But, Tevin showed why he continued to start with his constant ability to execute the option and check plays. Vad did show issues. He had a tendency to stop trusting in the system at times. He also had issue checking plays on the line. Vad also seemed to have someone in mind before pass plays and would act on feel versus read. Most honest people admitted these issues. Vad did pitch the ball in the NC game, and fairly decently. He did not run the triple option very much. In the final 2012 game, Vad was running both the triple and counter option. He did have issues on the counter option and being ready to pitch the ball. JT had a minim of snaps versus Vad's initial time on the field. But, JT has shown a good eye on reading (see his series in the Miami game and his reading the cross charge). I also think JT has a better mesh/pull that is harder to react too. JT also shows an ample ability and willingness to pitch the ball. JT does a better job with his vision. He is looking for the open man, not throwing to a predetermined person. I think JT has a better field awareness than Vad given his limited number of snaps and spring game. JT is not as tall as Vad and had at least one issue with the screen pass. He also has to move out of the pocket at times to see open receivers. The good thing is he is good at passing on the move. We all have concerns with JT goal line and short 3rd down conversions possibilities. Does JT have enough mass to push through? Some wonder if JT is too reckless with the ball. JT is more of an intelligent vision player. Vad played more on emotion and relationships. We can only speculate, but I believe JT has more going for him at this point than Vad in reading, pitching, and field awareness.
