I’m not saying that ZL has more talent than JG nor am I saying that JG is less of a player than ZL because of the overall record of the team. I am just saying that as a senior ZL had developed the proper technique to maximize his potential. If JG continues to develop he will surpass his current numbers by a significant amount, but he still has some development to do. In other words he hasn’t reached his ceiling.Laskey had 851 yds and 5 ypc as a senior. His team went 11-3 and was ranked in the top 10. JG has 745 yards and 5.3 ypc on a team that has won 3 to date and may not win another this season. Never mind his other yards 9receiving, kicks, etc.) His offensive line "is what it is". I don't know if we have had any backs ever that would have positive rushing yardage this year. I am assuming that you watch the games.
Jerrelle Williams was a fine LB for us. But to say he was better than Keith Brooking bc his team won a NC and Brooking's didn't is absurd. I think this analogy is simialr to what you and others are saying. And, btw, I love me some Zach Laskey.
I am not disparaging JG at all. He is a really talented player. He will be great as he continues to develop.
