Agreed, especially early on. I think that, as the season wears on and the QB (whomever he may be) becomes more established, we'll start to throw it more. But, the game plans will be pretty vanilla the first few games, and many tiger fans will bitch about it even if we don't have a loss. This is true, but you also can't hide your QB in the SEC. We'll need him to make some plays early on, but won't put the game in his hands. It doesn't matter how dominant your run game is (if you run a pro-style offense); if you can't keep defenses honest, your output will be minimal. Oh, but we do. Didn't you hear all of the expert analysis after the Outback Bowl? We're doomed for 3 more years of mediocrity at QB because the black QB struggled in his first start. I agree. I don't remember there ever being so much turnover at skill positions among the usual front-runners in the conference. There is no clear-cut favorite in the SEC at this point. Most people will say Auburn, but they are losing Mason, and will most likely have to deal with the hangover effect as well as expectations. bama fans seem to think that they will see no drop-off in QB production, even though they have no idea who will be taking snaps in the fall. Chalk that one up to delusion. I can't stand AJ, but he's been the most productive QB in their history, and they're also breaking in a new OC who was, at best, a very questionable hire. aTm is a huge question mark. With Sumlin's system, they're sure to score a lot of points. But, unless they make huge upgrades across the board on defense, they are sure to struggle. Considering they lost 4 games this year with Johnny, they've got their work cutout for them to get back to that point next year.
