15.Oct.2016 McMaryion and these Coaches
After the Civil War, when he almost lead what is basically a high school football team to victory, I said this was the guy. Then today he comes in and makes it look easy after sitting all game in adverse conditions. After just a handful of passes he surpassed, in performance, the other QBs by a long-shot.
Everyone see why I’m high on the guy now? Or, if not convinced he’s the answer, at least want to see him play a few games?
I can’t for the life of me see why you’d bench a high IQ player (4.0 GPA), who by the coaches admission mastered the playbook within weeks last camp, who can throw a beautiful ball, over a lower conference transfer and a walk-on, but my only guess is pure nepotism. You just can’t escape nepotism. Riley had it, GA has it, and then the fans follow along and say “Coach knows best” or actively look for reasons McM failed (e.g. The INT he throw on that screen pass, totally ignoring that Villimin dropped a TD on him earlier in that game). Whatever, this is the best QB on the roster. Moran might be better, but right now McM is the best option.
He’ll probably get killed next week vs Washington and everyone will view that as proof he’s bad. He’s better than the other two; that’s all I know at this point. Whether he is good or great is up in the air and we need game action to find out.
Moving on, these coaches cost the Beavs this game. It’s heartbreaking for them because they played well enough to win back to back conference games, and the staff let them down in so many ways. You guys saw it, so I don’t need to rehash it, but feel free to give all the examples you saw for discussion purposes.
