How do we handle the QB situation from here on out?

    Other than the really bad interception that cost us dearly, JJ acquitted himself quite well tonight. He can definitely serve as a nice change of pace QB and is dangerous inside the 5 yard line (he showed that tonight).

    Lee was simply awesome and just kept his poise and threw to the right man almost every time. Led his receivers so we could get yards after the catch. Again, refreshing to see out of an LSU QB.

    If I had to change anything going forward, is to get Lee about 2/3 of the drives instead of JJ getting them (like he did tonight). We obviously have our best chance in the passing game with Lee back there. I was just happy to see JJ complete come critical passes tonight. Should go a long way for his psyche.

    I thought JJ played well tonight...except for you know what. He ran the ball well, too. What were JLee's numbers? I know they were impressive...

    I think they both perform better when the coaches actually help them prepare for the game. it's quite apparant that is what happened this last week.

    its a shame it takes public outcry to get it done.

    Proactive coaching not reactive.

    We still got WAY too conservative with Lee in in the 2nd half. Coulda easily hung 14 more on them, they ( florida ) were not covering Tolliver or Rueben well.

    Lee 9-11, 124 yards, 2 TDs, 0 Ints
    JJ 7-12, 100 yards, 0 TDS, 1 Ints

    16-23, 224 yards, 2 TDs, 1 Int (if we do this the rest of the year, we'll be national champions most likely)

    Funny thing, they officially gave the team an 0-1 for 0 yards (for the Helton play I guess). Not sure how it could be an incomplete pass and a lateral at the same time. Should be counted as strictly a running play.

    I dont see any reason not to just do what we did tonight.

    JJ made one bad throw, but outside of that he played pretty damn good. Was great on 3rd down.

    Lee and Jefferson should be utilized the way Flynn and Perrilloux were back in '07. Lee is the main QB and takes most of the reps. Jefferson has a few set plays that he is a proven success at running, and comes in for the right situations to run his plays, probably 8 to 12 plays a game. Alternating possessions with your QBs serves no practical purpose, other than to keep both players (and a disgruntled fan base) happy.

    Ok, thanks. Might be what the "Team 0-1" thing is all about. Makes sense.

    So technically he was still 9-11 on actual attempted passes, with 1 that his receiver was clearly interfered on but was a good pass.

    It seemed like JJ converted every 3rd down he had, excluding that one where a penalty brought it back and he took a sack on the repeat. He showed a lot of toughness to force the 3rd and goal into the endzone. He gave us 3 points with his 20 yards before halftime just keeping it simple and taking the yards the defense was giving them. He also had a nice throw to Randle on another 3rd and long to convert.

    Lee needs to play more and the game wouldn't have been a nailbiter had that happened. I liked using JJ in specific situations, but he shouldn't be getting the majority of the plays. Sadly, I believe Miles is married to the idea that JJ should be getting the majority of snaps.

    JJ looked better at times and was well used near the goal (not on the 2 point attempt, though). Miles almost cost us the game - we were the better team tonight, I think clearly, except that our coaches want to lean on the wrong QB. Florida is gonna be back with that young Tebow clone. That kid looks like he'll be trouble in the future.

    Simply put, I believe we could be a NC contender with Lee in for the majority of snaps, but if we continue to favor JJ we probably won't beat Bama.

    Damn it, we're so close.

    Also, the conservative play calling has got to go. I understand it to an extent, but Miles rolls it out too soon and does a piss poor job of executing it.
