    Much stronger arm that cannot hit wide open receivers more than 50% of the time. Mett will not have to worry about the issues involved as #1 pick in the draft.
    Something also tells me that Luck might have a little bit more going on between the ears than just air rushing through. For Islstl, no worry he will be back in 2013, as for drooling
    scouts, well..........................He does have one more chance but based on the coaching on his side of the ball, he is facing some long odds IMO.

    We need some 7 foot receivers that can run a 3.9 40 in pads. Dude overthrows receivers way too much.

    Mettenberger is crazy strong and can move. But I do t think he is smart or accurate enough to ever be more than an above average sec qb. But lsu can still win a national championship pretty easily with a decent qb.

    This is what befuddles me. Happened on 2nd and 2 on our last possession. That throw would've sealed the W. I actually think the scars of JL's pick-6 bonanza in 2008 is rearing its' ugly head here. I think(just my hypothesis here) that Les stresses not throwing INTs to a point where Mett is "afraid" to put the ball where the defender has even the slightest chance at it. Here's the bad part of that statement, b/c that's usually a good statement to make; Mett knows he won't get to throw it very much anymore if he throws an INT. Or at least he may think that. IDK. Maybe I'm overthinking. I'm just trying to make sense of losing the games we did. The "what could've beens" of the past two years are eatin' at me. Can't imagine how bad it must be for the players and coaches.

    exactly... If he completes just half of his overthrows, we beat bama (three missed tds), fla (two missed tds) and clemson ( two missed tds and the infamous 2nd and 2)... of course he had them in others as well, i just site these games because we lost them close... this would make our games not as close which would quiet (maybe) the bad play-calling people...

    ZM crucified Alabama and earned the win. He's in with me.

    definitely one of his best games of the season and the play calling on d at the end of the half was atrocious... all i'm saying is if he completes 1 or 2 of the overthrows, the d wouldn't be in the position they were put in... against clemson, he had 120 yds total passing... the d played a game and a half of snaps... he just needs to work on his accuracy and pocket presence/ qb clock...

    Best half of the season, remember he didn't do shit in the first 2 quarters.
