That's funny. The last time I saw Perry, he was almost perfect throwing it, if the receivers would have caught the balls that hit them in the hands.

Sure. Perfect throwing it on a few of the select plays he has proven he can run. He wants the team to learn and grow so we come into Spring at least knowing the systems. No matter the score, you don't reward the backup who requires you to use just a third of your playbook because he can't manage the effort to learn the playbook and can't reliably make the necessary throws on half the plays he does know.

It bears repeating. Austin Brown didn't give up 47 points.

But even if the defense had only given up 10... losers we would still be.

Thing I'm seeing about AB is that he still has got gimpy foot so can't scramble & teams know it. He holds the ball way too long so is unable to scramble out leading to a sack. While JP might not know the whole offense at least his mobility & what he does know might've helped to give some spark.

Sometimes you've just got to take a bite of the **** sandwich & swallow your pride.

I thought he should have played JP. AB's mobility is limited and everyone knows it. He cant get a good push on his deep throws. I wonder if the reason for not playing JP is that JP dosnt know the play book or if hes made it known hes gonna transfer.

That would also be true if we'd scored 40.

This disaster of a game was a total team effort.

RE: Garrick makes it official
I don't think anyone is blaming the loss on AB. (My opinion) I do think everyone is questioning the HC on why he does not make an obvious change in quarterback. Had we made the change at Tulane I still think we win the two we did and maybe even pulled out Tulane. I was all for giving AB the chance but sometimes sitting the pine and watching and learning does a world of good. For someone who does not know the offense (The rumor) he sure looks pretty good when he gets on the field.

Garrick Mcgee needs to learn that pride is not hard to swallow once you have chewed it long enough.

Is the object to use all of your playbook and lose, or 1/3 of your playbook and win?

Austin Brown was the starting QB in all three of our wins this year.
