After a rocky start in the season-opening loss to Florida State, LSU's Jayden Daniels has re-emerged as a top quarterback in College Football.

Last week vs. Mississippi State, Daniels completed 30-of-34 passes for 361 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. His performance earned him SEC Co-Player of the Week honors with teammate Malik Nabers

Daniels now has 976 passing yards and eight touchdowns with one interception on the season, along with 157 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

During his weekly press conference on Monday, LSU head coach Brian Kelly praised the performance of quarterback Jayden Daniels.

Sounds like we’ll be going for 4th down often. I don’t disagree except in cases where it’s still really early in the game and it’s likely going to be a tight game. Take the 3 early and then make your moves later on in the game. Either that or have a plethora of 4th down plays that have not been put on tape or has and you use it to your advantage. They definitely need to add a QB sneak from under center for the 1 yard or less plays. At least have the ability so it’s an option for you. I’d really like to see Anderson more on quick pop passes and used in the read option. Would be a great wrinkle to the offense.

Glad to see he has progressed as a QB. He still missed some opportunities but it looks like he is working on that.

All this going for it on 4th down is freaking me out. Kick the FG, punt it, there's still 3 qtrs left to play!

It’s amazing how hard of a time fans give Jayden. Guy is a great college QB.

Honestly, I just want the kid to be more decisive with is throwing, that's all I ask for. I ask that he just look down the field and go through his progressions quickly to find an open receiver because they are there. You just have to be patient and spot them and not look to quickly take off an run like he has a tendency to do at times. If he quickly spots that open receiver and throws to him or even throws him open and let's him make a play on the ball like he did with Nabers last game. Then fans will back off with the criticism, watch and see.

It's really just pushing the ball. He can clearly do it. He totally different qb and we're a totally different team when he pushes the ball.

Before Saturday, he was a stellar game manager. Saturday showed everyone that he's also a very good QB. He's GOT to stretch the ball down the field consistently going forward.

Neither can say a thing about their qbs this year and Nick routinely said it about Bryce Young.
