Perspective on next year’s QB situation

Daniels just completed his 4th year as a starting QB. A great runner, but a below average passer. Will he show improvement next year, possibly but doubtful. What you see is what you got. Walker on the other hand tremendous upside. He was ranked very high like Weigman among QB’s in the 2022 recruiting rankings. Competition should be wide open with Walker given a fair shot at being the starter.

If JD returns, it’ll be a 2 QB system because Walker won’t be kept on the bench.

I’m not against playing both Walker and JD because it makes it that much tougher on DCs.

It's a waste of a year to play JD again, he's not good as a passer.

CBK is going to tell JD that it’s best for both him and LSU that they move on

If Walker Howard can throw down the field, we are in great shape. Did not see much of that at all this season from JD5

Sit JD down and tell him he's moving to wide receiver and let him compete there while Howard takes over. Nuss is as good as gone.

If Howard can't beat JD out on ability, then we are well and truly fricked.

How many throws did Walker Howard make this year? Hope we see him a little bit in a bowl game

Yep. And didn't Howard take 0 snaps this year? That doesn't make sense and doesn't sound good for next year.

He took 6 or 8 earlier in the season but they were all handoffs and a screen pass or some shite like that.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
We have 2 top 5 WRers committed for next year.
Do you think they are going to stay committed to us with Daniels as a returning starter.
I’ll answer flat out no way

I think JD goes pro, can be a great WR in the NFL.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
Him not reading his reciever windows down the sidelines and over the middle to stretch the field seriously cripples the lsu offense. He has no had 4 straight years to learn and he is worst than most all the freshamn starters around the league.

Him signing nil right after bama and he consequently putting his efforts into the tank is clearly visible also.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
JD's problem isn't that he can't make the throws. It's the fact that he is attempting to severely limit his turnover ratio by not attempting to stretch the field. He's only throwing "safe" passes. Unfortunately, this is the SEC and defenders are better athletes than in the PAC12.

Bryce Young would've run through the SEC with this team. We aren't as far off as many like to think we are. We just need a QB that is a passer more so than a threat to run.

It’s not just safe throws. He doesn’t throw almost any anticipation throws. Everything is after the WR is open.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
If LSU gets beat by Georgia and JD doesn’t show improvement Howard should start the bowl game. That’s the best way to ease into the transition. That way the writing is on the wall and JD knows where he stands. Gives him ample time to decide whether to switch positions or switch teams.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
Y'all are dumb. We CANNOT move on from Daniels. QBs that can extend plays are valuable in college and Walker is probably not that guy. Daniels has more to learn for sure, but need I remind everyone he has put up eerily similar numbers to Burrow's first year here. He's the guy next year, plain and simple.

Lol y'all are out of your minds if you think Jayden isn't coming back to start.

I'm just gonna trust Brian Kelly but look at his previous QBs and current recruits. He wants a mobile QB and Jayden is his guy.

Walker will start in 2024 unless Jayden struggles to throw the ball again.

re: Perspective on next year’s QB situation
You may be right. If JD comes back, LSU again won't make the CFB playoff. At this point in his collegiate career, he's a finished product. This was supposed to be a one and done year for him. He stated he wanted to improve his draft stock. JD was a freshman phenom at AZ. St. However, he never regained that form and ended up here after a covid season and a very subpar season. He threw deep balls in his 1st year but appears to be shell-shocked from last year's 10TD/10INT season.

I know this sounds crazy but I think he cares more about his numbers than he does wins and losses. How often has a coach stated in a public presser that our QB is being too conservative? That's usually not the nature of a QB.

I think JD has someone in his camp advising him to look at the bigger picture and keep his turnovers next to zero so he can improve his draft stock. That's the only way I can make sense of a QB that threw it constantly downfield but all of a sudden is afraid to.
