Calling all Bammers. Post news here.
Who's gonna be the starter, Jalen or Tua?
Tua, but I’m not as nervous about seeing Jalen as I was before.
I was kidding around
I'm concerned that Tua might not be healthy. I wouldn't be surprised if he has ankle and knee surgery real soon. If it wasn't for the Heisman show, he would have already had them, imo.
I thought he already had the ankle procedure done?
Don’t know about knee.
Anyone else think Tua has been trying to hard these last few games?
He's been pressing to make big plays instead of taking the underneath stuff. It caused 3 picks against MSU and UGA. It also caused him to hold the ball too long in a lot of situations.
His eyes are always down field first and he sometimes locks in without going down his progression. He is going to have to learn he doesn't have time to do that against good defensive fronts. It has gotten him hurt twice now in reality. That was the difference between him and Jalen Saturday honestly. Jalen had a good internal clock and would run instead of stand in the pocket hoping it develops. A month until the bowl game and Tua made his biggest progression last year in bowl prep. So we will see what happens.
Absolutely. Going for the home run and forcing things.
It has gotten him beat up worse too. Maybe he can chill out with this down time and come back in early season form.
His knee is fine and has been for weeks.
I suppose it may be at a higher risk for re-injury, I'm no doctor, but he's clearly not bothered by it anymore.
He had the same procedure done to his ankle
that Hurts had
hoping now that the heisman shit will be behind him,, he goes back to playing football.,
Yeah, supposedly Hurts didn't heal as quick as hoped/normal. Hope he heals like normal.
I think we could still win with Hurts.
Well, seeing Jalen in relief of Tua he looked more like a qb capable of passing then he did as a starter.
Boz posted this over on the rant it all sounds good.
Doesnt look like he's putting much pressure on the back foot yet but this is definitely promising..
He’s gonna play.
