Driskell vs. Bridgewater

Postby law98gator » Thu Jan 03, 2013 1:24 am

Tonight highlighted why a passing QB who can strike deep and stress a defense.

It also highlighted why you should never have a mouthbreather as your QB. Move to slot receiver, Driskell. It's your only hope for the NFL. Someone needed to tell you.

Just don't understand why a so-called fan would call a player who works hard and (as far as I know) does the right things a name like that. Driskell didn't play well and maybe isn't the caliber QB UF needs to reach the top. That's really all that needs to be said.

I don't know why a fan of another team would hang out on a sports board.

Well, I guess someone has to take up for a UF player whose worst crime is not playing well. It happens to everyone sometimes. And maybe the guy isn't the answer at QB, but I don't think he should be ridiculed for it. Give him a break.

Can't execute a slant; can't defend a slant... it's been a Gator quandary this year.

Well, Driskell played better than Nixon, who could not block #91 at all. But go ahead and waste more threads, becasue Driskell will be QB next year.

Perhaps, in all truth, Driskel is a baseball athlete.
He hits scorching line drives, throws on a rope and
speed to chase flies and turn an extra base.

Still, the guy that couldn't beat him out isn't gonna be the answer.
Not with this supporting cast. Who is the QB Coach 'cause he could
not train Driskel to play right, nor Brissett to exceed Driskel. :cool:

Maybe you just weren't mentally tough enough for football.

Ever consider tennis?

1) By 'mouthbreather' do you mean someone that lacks intelligence? 2) What does your 1st sentence mean?

Law, this entire team got curb stomped by a BIG Least team. You know, a team that's as bad as a team from The WAC. :lol:

This was awful. Our QB can't make a read on the D nor our defense stop a decent passing game.

Look guys, we just got punked by a big east team. We are superior to that team talent-wise in every respect. The Gators were not ready to play football tonight and it was every damn one of them, right down to the punter. We stunk up the field, flat out sucked. Driskell was not good but nobody else was either. We got behind so fast the Gilly couldn't be used effectively. Both lines got dominated by the BIG EAST. Are you sh@tting me? Champ better take this seriously, the bloom is off the rose of the fsu win. We are back to suckage on the national stage because we could not take care of business against an inferior opponent.

Just don't see why anyone would stoop to name-calling over a kid who works hard, plays hard, and seems to do the right things. And I feel that way about any player on any team. So it just kinda puzzles me when it's a player on a team that you supposedly support.

If JD isn't the answer at QB, then he's not. But he was offered a scholarship to a great school and program, took it, and is doing what he can. Can't say I blame him for any of that.

I think you might take your fandom a little too seriously.

Let me start by

I was very impressed by the quarterback play of Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater showed great poise & guts (after taking that vicious hit by Bostic early in the game but still played with great determination) while evading the gator defense. Very impressed by the accuracy of his throws - some of those fade passes reminded me of Chris Leak & Danny Wuerfel. The throws that he was making to his open receivers were on the money all night long. Bridgewater has a chance to be a future Heisman winner if he can continue to lead Louisville to another big season. Congratulations to Charlie Strong on having his team so prepared for the Sugar Bowl; it was a great win for your team, Louisville.

That's a great point. :)
Driskel seems to be more suited to be a pitcher on a baseball team than as a serviceable quarterback. He has no touch on his passes; especially, that first errant pass to a wide open Debose only to be intercepted by Louisville. I don't think that FLorida ever recovered from that mishap!

Mechanically and talent wise Driskel is fine but that third element (football intelligence) he doesn't have. You CAN'T telegraph a throw and lock on him a receiver right from the snap. Watch the better QB's, they don't give away where they are going. He is like a Robot, stiff and mechanical. Good QB's have to be fluid, relaxed, confident and un-predictable. Driskel does not have that skill and I doubt he ever will. Its an innate behavior.
Time to open up the competition for the position.

Driskel is no more of a QB than Denard Robinson or Jordan Jefferson were. Once they figure that out and put him at another position we can at least more on to finding a real QB.

Our defense will not be lights out next year. We'll need a QB for more than killing the clock.

He did seem to be running for his life which is probably why he threw early a few times. This will be a critical offseason for him and the new and hopefully improved oline.
