TW was not a good qb, Move on.
So, who in your estimation was the best QB in the CPJ era?
So defenses didnt key on the B-back, because Tevin couldn't get to the edge? Safeties didn't cheat in to stop the run, because Tevin had a noodle arm? Yep, we were just fine with Tevin at qb.
No, the fact that we struggled to put up 28 points on a bad SunBelt team was though. Not to mention that Tevin got extra possessions due to the quick scoring that our defense gave up.
Tevin didn't get extra posessions. The offense did. There's 10 other players out there. Can't disregard context either. If I'm rebering right we got behind early in that game so Tevin and the offense was forced to do some things that definitely weren't their strengths. Stop allocating blame to a single player.
While this discussion about how precisely we can tell whether the unblocked DL was an option read is interesting, the fact remains that it began because somebody blamed TW for our W-L record for games which our defense clearly lost. When a guy doesn't admit that he was posting with more emotion than sense, further discussion is likely fruitless.
Tevin had a higher completion % than did Vad or Nesbitt. He scored more TDs than any other QB at Tech. The facts and your opinion do not align. He was not the fastest or the strongest, but overall he was statistically the best. He missed fewer snaps than JN
I think the accuracy of this post has been proven. Thanks @nodawgs for demonstrating my point.
Oh wow! Completion %???? TW is the tallest midget. Great! How many of those TDs were < 1 yard? Almost all. Quite possibly the worst arm in the history of college football. Sorry if I believe that a qb should be able to throw the ball, option qb or not.
Throwing passes means nothing. Completing passes means a lot. Getting a TD from the 1 or the 50 makes no difference. A TD from the 1 means that he had to drive the field to get to the 1. With our special teams during Tevin's tenure the drives sure as heck did not start there. You can rant and bellyache about Tevin all you want. You are still wrong. He was statistically better than our other QBs, with arguably less talent around him.
Quoting yourself proves your point? LOL...ok!
@nodawgs And your "boy" is?? Or do you just like to throw all GT players under the bus with hyperbole and fact less opinion?
You seem to have a hard time answering the question. Who is your "boy"? You are great at throwing down on our players, but I have yet to see you name one in a positive manner. So why don't you quit all the moaning and griping, man up, and call out some guys on our team who you think are great.
LOL! My boy? Out of CPJs crew would obviously be Nesbitt by a long shot. He was an athlete, a winner, and had a respectable arm. Things have gone downhill since his injury. There is no denying that.
