Ouch Notre Dame

Smart move for the kid. Washington has no expectations, Willingham recruited no one to compete with him and Locker will be gone after this year. He doesn't have to be Joe Montana's kid at Washington like he would have at ND. Plus he gets to play with USC QB guru Sarkisian.

And he won't have to pose in these type photos.

Maybe he will just wind up quitting football like Elway's boy recently did.

I think ND got a verbal commit from Andrew Hendrix, out of Cincinnati. Hendrix seems far more equipped to play as a freshman. Everything I hear about Montana says that he is a guy who has potential, but definitely won't be able to make an impact in college for several years.

I can't really blame him. There is nowhere he can go where he won't be compared to his dad, but at least it should be a little less intense in Washington. I can't even imagine how much pressure there is when you're dad is a living QB legend and you're trying to make your own mark playing the same position.

Notre Dame won't need Hendrix, or anyone else for that matter, to play as a Freshman. Clausen's only a junior, and Dane Crist is probably a better QB than either of them, and he's a soph...

Sounds like Joe's other son, who was a walk-on at ND and rides the pine each week currently.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
