It's QB 2 and it's not even close. I'm the vet he had the discussion with.
QB 1 was a senior for Florida in Warner.
QB 2 was a true frosh starter. QB 1 under a different coach the previous season produced 33(I thought it was 38 until I looked at the numbers) total offensive touchdowns. QB 2 this season under the new coach produced 71 total offensive touchdowns, 61.1% completion rate, 3,929 yards, 45 TD's, 6 INT's, 1 rushing TD in 12 starts with 14 overall games played.
When I say produced I mean led the offense passing and rushing as a whole to those numbers.
As I told Bull when we chatted on sitemail, QB 1 would have to have a lot more separation in ratings for me to start him over QB 2.
QB 2 was already better in 7 of 12 categories than QB 1.
Hey bud, I wasn't going to out you but since you did it yourself...lol. Respectfully I disagree. Since they were different coaches (and probably different game-plans) I don't think you can compare stats. I've had a bit of success since going to an all-pass offense (and starting to pay attention again...thank you Champ and Swooft) so I think I'll stick with what I think works. I look at Tech, GI, STR in that order. I do look at Athl but it is a distant 4th. Honestly, in D1A, I never look at WE and take just a quick glance at potential. I also do not look at Elus, Hands, Blk, Tkl...lol...or anything else. All that other stuff is a tie-breaker to me. It's noise. It's like telling me that Gino Smith is a better QB than Ben Rothlesberger because Gino is faster.
I would've RS'ed the FR and started the SR. My goal, every year, is to win that year 1st; set-up for the future 2nd. In my mind QB is clearly better but that's because I value STR and Athl in an exact opposite valuation as you. That's cool - it's what makes the game.
GL to all.
