Wasted Optimism

We are back…. well, "back"

Are we looking at QB by Committee?

Brandon Weeden is..

“We have three quarterbacks that are playing, and I’ve said earlier that J.W. is the guy that’s been out there most of the time (with the first-unit offense). But each quarterback brings something different to the table, and that gives us a little bit of flexibility on offense and how we want to try to attack a team each week.”

That was Mike Gundy yesterday at Big 12 Media Days. You could argue that he’s saying a lot without saying anything at all OR you could let your mind race since it’s July. We’ve got a job to do here so I’ll choose the later.

Gundy says “We have 3 quarterbacks that are playing”

This is acceptable. There are 3 QB’s that are playing (in practice)

He also says “I’ve said earlier that J.W. is the guy that’s been out there most of the time with the first unit offense”

So he’s basically saying I TOLD YOU SON and that’s fair. Walsh has 18 college football games under his belt and 353 pass attempts compared to  Daxx Garman and Mason Rudolph’s combined 0.

But here’s where it gets interesting.

“Each QB brings something different to the table”

You don’t say…

“Based on the style of play or the plan of attack that we want to use, we have a little bit of flexibility with the quarterback that we put in the game at that time”

Yuck.  I’ve never been a fan of QBBC’s. I think the QB is the leader of the team and if you’re constantly changing your leadership at that position you end up having a committee of marginal QB’s versus a leader that can win tight games for you.

Gundy could be just saying a lot without saying anything at all….or he could be setting us all up for a season of never really having a true starter at the position.

  1. Offensive play calling by committee didn’t seem to work last year, so I hope they are not expanding…
