2010 Qb


Recommended Posts

This kinda has me puzzled, as I just don't see that type of QB being a great fit w the offense Charlie has run. With the QB Jones last year going so poorly, I would be amazed if they could successfully recruit a guy like that to this team. I am way confused.....

The problem is, normally a "dual-threat" quarterback is actually a "single-threat". With this guy, his release may be funky but it gets to the receivers hands. I don't think we get him, but it's part of casting a wide net.

Demetrious played what...a half of a game? Then he quit. I wouldn't judge dual threat QB's potential in CW's system from a guy that quit on his teammates 2 games into the season.

 

Demetrius was simply a poor fit for the school and the team. Between his questionable "roach in the tray" incident, skipping out on mandatory meetings after being named the starter, and arranging for a transfer before ever telling the coaching staff (after ONE game, mind you), Demetrius was the exception to the rule. "Train wreck" comes to mind. And in spite of his claims of being a pocket passer first, he clearly wasn't. Might have been in his mind, but his arm wasn't up to snuff for our offense IMO.

 

When looking at dual threat guys, rather than look at their legs first and judge everything else afterwards, look at their arm before making any judgements. If the guy has a great, pocket passer ready arm, and also happens to have some mobility and athleticism with his legs (E.J. Manuel comes to mind), he shouldn't have to be victimized because of it. But if his arm looks like a wet noodle, then you should probably think twice before hopping on the hype train. Guys that truly balance athleticism and pocket passer discipline are EXTREMELY rare, often are projects, but they are out there.

Yeah, I guess it matters how you use a guys skills, and CW showed he was willing to try to put in a special package just for DJs talents. So I can see him tweeking the offense for the next guy after Dayne- seeing there will be at least a years gap (no QB schollie this year probably).

I don't know why some of you think Weis wouldn't be into dual threat QB's? Weis is open minded and very innovative and having someone who's dynamic that would open up the game and make the offense that much more unpredictable he would be all for. What he's not about is having more or less a RB as a QB that makes a some passes here and there and that IMO doesn't really make them a dual threat QB it makes them a running QB.

I guess it stems from his dealings with Double D, wanting him to pass first and foremost. Other than that, what other dual threat has he dealt with?

I guess i would like to see him bring someone in and start him or base a large chunk of the offense around someone like that. I have only seen the aborted attempt last year w DJ and it seemed like it was not his first option, with him believing from the start that JC would be who he would base his future offense around.
