Sure, I know he was a redshirt freshman. He was good for a redshirt freshman. And taken as a whole, his stats for the season were downright solid.
But we stalled on a lot of drives, right when we needed momentum. I'm not smart like some of you folks, so I can't just point at Mike Bobo and blame the play calling. I blame a plethora of things. I see death by 1,000 cuts and football as a game of inches.
Which is to say I want a quarterback who can shrug all that off, put us on his back, and take us to the end zone.
And that is why I love Aaron Murray. From The Macon Telegraph:
“If you all were able to go back and watch the film the way we watch the film and critique it the way I critique it and the way Coach Bobo critiques it, there were tons of plays last year where I left on the field,” Murray said. “I could’ve thrown a completion here or there, or thrown a touchdown here or there, or checked to a play here or there that I didn’t do. There are a lot of corrections to be made.”
