Only at LSU would fans be calling for 2nd string QB that was outplayed by the starter...
Brennan is the future but Saturday he had one INT and almost a 2nd one in limited action. He's not quite ready imo. After we lose a couple more games I would still hand the reins over to him though and get him ready for next year.

Ettling isn't an all-american but his QB rating Saturday was 190.5 to Brennan's 138.3. We're still playing for something atm, Ettling should remain the starter until we're not.

QB wasn't the problem last game and anyone who thinks it was wasn't paying attention.

The OL was atrocious. Advocate's article says it all, LSU QBs were pressured on 14 of 25 drop backs...MORE THAN 50% of the time our QBs were under pressure quickly.

Both Etling and Brennan played well considering the amount of pressure they were under. INT was not Brennan's fault at all.

We are starting to sound like Alabama pre Saban.... "Yeah, just wait until we get Andrew Zow in" "yeah, just wait until Brodie Croyle starts playing"

That int was not all on him the receiver didn’t run through his route. However, I can see why most want him to start because it’s a non sec opponent and he sees the field better than Danny does on a lot of plays where most think Danny would have took a sack.

Syracuse dropped another INT right in their hands, probably a pick 6.

Not only at LSU.

Also, when we have an actual good QB we won't be calling for the backup.

It gets old hearing how we will always call for the backup. Shut up. We were content with Mett.

A&m is in quite a similar situation.. but they went with the true freshman qb to start the season.. over the mediocre Senior I believe. He looked like straight trash the first two games.. but he has improved tremendously with experience over the past 2 games.

Etling is extremely limited.

I look forward to the day LSU can have a QB throw an INT or even 2 and it still be okay because he throws for 3-4 TDs in a game.

Brennan will get better the more experience. He didn't have an INT on the almost so forget it.. and the other was faulted on the WR route.. Brennan came out with limited experience and the offense marched the field for a score. Imagine how much better he will be with more experience. Now is the time, versus Syracuse and Troy..

Did you happen to see Etling when we faced great defenses? We will need to get the ball out quick. He seems to hold it a bit long. It's whatever though.

Waiting for the Davis said he ran the wrong route comment. Even if he did run wrong route, the pass should have never been thrown.

That was definitely not a good throw, but it would have been a very tough INT because of how high it was thrown.

re: Only at LSU would fans be calling for 2nd string QB that was outplayed by the starter...
I will say I was impressed with Brennan, especially his reads.

I've also been impressed, albeit to a lesser degree, with Etling. My biggest complaint is his reads and hesitation.

Brennen was not impressive enough to displace Etling... yet.

Agree with you, start Etling. Keep putting Brennen in on NON-mop up duty running a full offense every game.

The idea of not putting Brennen in behind this OL is bull shite. OL is not getting fixed any time soon, Etling could be injured at any moment, we play in a division with AU and Gumps, our permanent E is UF. You will see pressure as the LSU QB. Might as well learn how to handle it.

Davis contributed to the INT. An experienced QB still doesn't make that mistake. An experienced WR doesn't put him in the position to make the mistake.

So Brennan should have taken a sack on 3rd down and put us outside FG range instead? Davis was open, why should he have not thrown it? Davis just glided out of his spot, for whatever reason.

if this was a team that was going to contend for a championship, sure stick it out with etling. I think we can all agree that is not happening this season, I would rather take my lumps with Brennan over danny and his total lack of any upside.

re: Only at LSU would fans be calling for 2nd string QB that was outplayed by the starter...
Etling put up a whopping zero points on Alabama.. at home.. even Harris on the road had a nice TD pass.

Etling’d 2 td passes against Syracuse were very nice, but not anything Brennan couldn’t do with the same receivers running free like that. I’d love to get Brennan sec experience now rather than be breaking him in a season from now.

Many people wanted the UF game at home last season because they said we were still playing for something. Thst was so stupid to me and wound up a very bad deal for us. We lost and now have to go there two straight.

It wil alll work out. As some have stated we may need both. Etling has taken some shots.

There are plenty of plays in a playbook that call for the QB to throw to where the receiver is GOING to be. Certain throws the QB throws it before the receiver has even turned around.. by design. It sounds to me like Myles made the correct throw in the correct spot, and that Drake (by his own admission) should have been in position to catch it.

Yes. Sack better than pick. You could have done better than that

Why? It was a good throw if he stayed where he was. Not even faulting the wr too much. He lost sight of the QB and slid over to get a better view.

Technically we are by the numbers, but do you have any confidence that we can beat Bama and take the West?

Bama beats us by 40 if we played tomorrow

Again, how is the INT BRENNAN'S fault? Davis glided out of his spot exactly where Brennan put it, it should have been an easy pitch and catch for 1st down. Davis took full blame for it.

Brennan was under pressure and had to make a throw on 3rd and 3. If he takes the sack we still end up with no points.
