Agreed. That will be next-level dumpster fire status. I think the same applies to Smith and Griffin in the RB room.I would think with Sims gone then Yates is the obvious starter. If both go then there's no doubt what these guys are saying is "i don't want to play here".
Yates is graduating in the spring. Good move for the young man.
I don't think Sims is in a position to leave. He hasn't shown an ability to step in and be the man at a better school than GT at this point. He has shown flashes of being a great player. He has yet to go a full season without injury and has a TD-INT ratio of 1.25. He could move down a level for guaranteed playing time but there is not upward or lateral movement where he would be the for sure starter. I am sure though that Sims sees himself as better than going to a non-P5 school, as he should. Add to that the number of games he has been injured; I just don't see it.
Agreed. The OLine is priority #1. We get that stabilized next year (I’m not holding my breath) and we’ll get QB’s and RB’s to come. We are basically on a 5 plus year plan so all that matters is limping thru the lame duck year and then hope the next staff can fix the OLine and build from there. I still believe the portal is a net plus for a school like GT. Sure, in a dumpster fire environment we lose a Gibbs type. But once 2023 gets here and we stabilize the program we’ll get in more guys that can help than lose guys that will hurt.I really don't think losing Sims would crash the offense next season. He is still mistake prone and injury prone. A new QB fit might be waiting in the wings.
I do not agree at all. Take a look at P5 game splits with Sims in vs out.I really don't think losing Sims would crash the offense next season. He is still mistake prone and injury prone. A new QB fit might be waiting in the wings.
“I think Sims is a really good player. I think Jordan Yates is a really good player,” Bateman said. “They ran the same plays.”
Wouldn’t be surprised to see Peery in the portal eitherWith Peery coming off a redshirt year Yates wasn’t a shoe in for playing time IMO and he’s never going to be QB1 over Sims. Why in the world would Sims leave? He’s the starting QB for a power 5 team. He would be nuts to leave. If we get the OC hire correct, Sims could be looking at a big year. If for some crazy reason he leaves let’s open the portal checkbook and bring in Gabriel. I’m really hoping Sims takes a big step forward next year. He has the raw talent to make us a very strong offensive football team.
