    And not throwing interceptions. Basically the vanilla QB Saban creams himself thinking about.

    Marshall wasn't a very good passer, but he was never really asked to be. Given how many fewer attempts he had, comparing his and Hurts's numbers is apples-to-oranges. Marshall was still probably a more capable passer than Hurts.

    Still had a better completion % and fewer INT while YPA and QBR were close.

    I'm just saying that for AU posters to act like Hurts couldn't be just as successful in that type of offense is them wearing orange colored glasses when talking about Marshall's passing ability.

    Thinking about it more, Hurts would be like a deer in headlights going from the bama o-line to ours.

    QB, Running Back, Tight End, and Outside Linebacker are the positions people in this thread have proposed that Jalen should play. Any others I am missing?

    Quit trying to overcompensate because you were still arguing that Jalen was a good QB going into the title game.

    he can throw, in fact, he's thrown the ball almost 700 times in the last 2 years. there's even video evidence if you don't believe me.

    I like Jalen and all, but there’s not much gravity behind any threat, implied or overt, he may make to leave. He was soundly outperformed by our other freshman QB in the spring game.

    He's literally saying he's not trying to leave because he's about to graduate. He's also saying its weird that the staff isn't even talking to him about it, and he's right imo

    I figured the implication is that he’ll leave after this year, but you’re right.

    Either way, I definitely am not a fan of the overall tone of that interview. Not saying it’s his fault, just that not much good can come of it.

    Credit to Hurts for waiting for this time to give a calm and measured response instead of popping off on social media or something. Continues to handle things in a class manner.

    So he is going to try to redshirt this year then transfer with 2 years to play and be eligible immediately?

    Greg McElroy made this argument a few weeks ago and it makes the most sense. If he knows he’s beat then he shouldn’t play more than four games. Play Tua and let Mac Jones handle garbage time. Only play Hurts if Tua gets hurt.

    These two quotes don't add up. Either they didn't talk about it or they talked and Jalen said he was staying. It's one or the other. Both can't be true.

    It's the way you should treat people. Don't put him in a position where he has to refuse to play at the end of a shit game because he wants to actually play a full season of football

    I think most of our fans feel the same way. Plus that would mean more Tua so we’re all for it.

    That's the wet dream going around the Auburn message boards right now.

    It'd never happen though. We will likely take a step back next year replacing our front 7 on defense

    Honestly I'm not sure what he means when he says "narrative". I don't think anybody's opinion on the QB battle is based on anything besides the play of the two guys. The last we saw one he was leading a near-miraculous comeback in the national championship while the other looked tight and got outplayed by the third-stringer in the spring game. :idk:

    Am I wrong?
