People may think I'm crazy, but I see what I see. And it's not a guy that's going to lead a team to a championship. That is what we're all striving for, right?
Not me, Rico Suave. I just want 6 and 6 and a second consecutive bowl appearance.
Ultimately, you want a kid that's going to win games for you at the QB position. Not not lose them. Is he terrible? I'd say no. He's actually not terrible. He's not bad, and he's, in some instances, above average.
I would say that arguably the thing that Nassib does best is make game winning plays late. How many late game/4th quarter/OT scoring drives has he led to tie or take the lead? It feels like that happens in 60-70% of the games we win. Can someone looks this up? We know it's 100% of the games this season.
But consistently, he misses at least three or four throws a game that need to be completed and that would be game changers. And he just doesn't look like he's ever comfortable in the pocket. That's why we do play-action every single passing play. What happens when we're facing a team that can stop the run with four down linemen, and can bring pressure from the back side on our play action passes? He's going to go right back to throwing for 130 yards a game like he did last year during BIG EAST play.
Remains to be seen I was think. Last year people weren't happy with the 56% of passes he completed, now the 75% he's completing isn't enough. Geez.
If I'm wrong about this, I'll be the first to say so. I really do root for him, and root for the team to win. But I just don't see it.
I don't disagree that he's the best since McNabb -- but come on, what is the competition? It's not like he's going up against Peyton Manning or Andrew Luck.
Sure seems to me like he's held to a Manning or Luck standard by some.
