LSU head coach Ed Orgeron joined the SEC Coaches Teleconference on Monday and opened up about the competition at the quarterback position.

Returning senior Danny Etling is current leader according to Orgeron. Per The Advocate:
quote:

"First of all, reason we opened up (the competition) is we have a new offense. I wanted to give a pro-style quarterback a chance, dual-threat quarterback a chance, give (offensive coordinator) Matt (Canada) a chance to see what these guys can do, an open lane to run the plays he wants to do and feel free to have success," Orgeron said.

"Danny has practiced with the first team. Nobody has beaten him out yet. Guys are very close," the coach continued. "We still haven't seen Myles Brennan. Danny's a guy who can go into the game, manage the game, make the short throws, make the checks, be a leader out there, have great pocket awareness. Those are the things we want him to do. He's also very good at throwing the deep ball."

Danny is ABSOLUTELY capable of getting us to the ship with LSU's defense backing him up. As long as Canada ends up being worth the investment, next season should be fun to watch.

Etling "good at throwing the deep ball", really?

LINK He throws the ball from the 45 yard line and hits DJ in the back of the end zone. Perfectly placed ball for 58 yards in the air.

well it's surely not the deep deep ball, but his 40 yrd throws have nice touch

He throws it deep enough to open up the defense. I'm cool with that.

LOL, let me throw in there at the last minute "that he's also very good at throwing the deep ball". We all know what he can and can't do. One of the can't(s) is surely arm strength.

A "Game Manager" is not going to get you to the playoffs. We need a playmaker at QB.

That's not true. Bama has had game managers for years.

Game managers can definitely get you into the playoff with a solid running game and defense.
