Does anyone in here think that JaMarcus Russell could throw for 4,000 yards?

    I think that if our running game wasn't as strong as it was, JaMarcus could throw for 4,000 yards in a season with all of our receivers we have. Of course, JaMarcus has never played a down of college football, but from what everyone says, he's the real deal.

    I agree with you, but the quarterback has to get the ball to the receivers. If he can't get it to them, then our receivers would be worthless.

    He will throw for at least 3000 yards, which if you think about it would be awesome. Mauck didn't throw for 3,000 this year. So this would be a great achievement.

    He would throw for 4,000 but we will mix in the run way too much to have him get to that mark.

    210 yards per game rushing, 275 yards per game passing. 485 total. That would put us in the top 5 for sure.

    Don't count out Flynn just yet. He is a smart, smart kid. I am not saying Jamarcus isn't, but from what I take, Flynn was quick to learn the system.

    I said JaMarcus because everyone is saying that he is the favorite for it right now and that everyone thinks he is our future QB. I think Matt Flynn can do just as good as Russell can. Man, I can't wait until spring practice. Does anyone know the first day of spring practice?

    I honestly can't wait for the Spring game this year. I think we will have a record number in attendence this year, and yes JaMarcus and Matt Both can throw for over 3000 yards if they have the kind of season they are capable of.

    I heard Flynn picked up the offense faster because it is more designed to Mauck(a little more QB running). Russell is not going to run for any extra yardage more of a Rohan type. I think someone will come out above the rest in spring and the offense will be altered accordingly.

    Speaking of Russell I went to the REC center the other night and shot around with T. Daniels, Spears, and D. Jones. Then in walks this dude head and shoulders above everyone. It was Russell seemed to be a quiet guy. He is not only tall but big. I am 6ft and was looking up to him. WOW!!!

    In highschool my basketball coach would say they have a 6-8 guy and he is the waterboy. I guess the same can now be said for LSU except a 6-6 QB of course.
