The ideal scenario would have been to grab a grad transfer QB and have Lucas back him up. That may have allowed us to move JG to another position like we did with Oliver. But it just wasn't in the cards.Dumb.
I feel very safe in saying that we will not be a good team with JG. We will not win close games against good teams with JG. You guys have seen him play, right? You've seen the size and type of the QB's we've signed, yes? He's playing because he was the best of what we had. He's not the future. He's a bridge to tomorrow right now. It's a shame, really. Wasted talent. Not his fault. Not the coaches' fault. Victim of circumstance.
Then again, without the opportunity to compete at QB, Graham may have gone ahead and transferred out when he was ineligible. Either way, I think Patenaude actually deserves some credit for JG playing as well as he did. It's been so long that I think folks just don't realize what you need in a QB for the type of offense we are trying to run now.
