Give me Mettenberger... Stats not as gaudy, but the kid makes a hell of a lot more plays than Barkley does, and against a much better conference

Adorable.

That's cute....

No, that's real... Y'all keep making excuses about the O-line. I've already agreed with you on that. Y'all still haven't told me why he misses wide open WR's when the game is on the line though...

That's cute. Oh and :lol: that you picked an SEC QB and didn't go with A.J. shows how well you follow the sport....

Since you edited your post, ill respond to the edit as well.

I did it for a reason, not because I think he's the best QB in conference. He's just better than Barkley when it matters

Ummm....maybe said wide receivers should be open. If you're talking about the fourth down where he had to try to dump it to Lee, everyone was blanketed just standing around....

You do realize LSU wins in spite of their QB not because of him. They've been doing it for years. Also, if USC had LSU's defense USC would be without a doubt undefeated still. I get it, you don't like USC. That doesn't make Barkley a scrub. He's not the best QB to ever play the game either. He's just a very good to great college QB, who has been let down by his defense two weeks in a row now....

Pied you for being real about Barkley.

Ordinarily I would agree with the comment on LSU's QB... But the kid is playing big against the Best D in the land. Give him his due. His confidence has been in question all week, and he's made some big time throws

Not talking about one play... He's done it down the stretch in all 3 losses

Coming into the game he was completing 59% of his passes at just over seven yards an attempt, with eight touchdowns to four interceptions. Was at 65%, 11.7 yards per attempt, and 25 touchdowns to eight interceptions. SEC defenses or not, Barkley is the better QB at this point in time. Can ZM get better? Of course, but as we stand on November 3, 2012 32 out of 32 NFL teams would draft Barkley long before ZM....

Again, his offensive line play has been complete poo since halfway through the Syracuse game and Holmes went down. A guy can only take so many hits before he gets happy feet and tries to preserve his NFL career....

Not disagreeing with you on that at all...

What I'm saying is this: big time players make big time plays in big time games... Barkley doesn't fit that bill, ZM proved it tonight

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
