Let Etling start keeps the pressure off the true freshman than go with the dual qb system. If one is getting hot or moving the team stick with them.

If Etling wasn't white nobody here would defend him.

he's capable of having a few good games but he's just not a good quarterback.

Because Myles Brennan is black?

He's a decent college QB....Myles has tons of potential-but Etling is better for now-especially if he doesn't have to run for his life. I love Brennan-as a Stanislaus alum, I was probably one of the first-if not the first to bring attention to him in this forum back in 2015.....I think he's being brought along just right-but Etling needs to keep starting!

Myles Brennan is a better QB. But too many people here defend the play of Etling because hes a "Tough nosed pocket passer"

So you're saying that they defend Etling because he's white, and that that's why they want him to start over Brennan . . .who is also white? It's not conceivably possible that they just think Etling is safer/more reliable/more experienced/better?

Even if they're wrong about Etling being better, I don't see why anyone would argue for Etling over Brennan based on whiteness.

I'm saying our Qb play is terrible, he makes a few good plays a game, and if he wasn't white he'd be getting shite on.

Myles Breenan has nothing to do with this. Myles Brennan is a BETTER QB. is he ready? we'll let time tell. But theres no defensing the play of Etling. he's slow on reads, he can't make tight throws. he's not great at feeling pressure. He very much reminds me of a slightly better anthony jennings ( if Jennings was Average)

Just because we've had terrible QB play since Flynn/ Mett doesn't mean we should be happy with Etling.

When he is ready and feels ready

The problem with Danny is length of time it takes for him to make the play - Myles is already quicker with his read and release

Below is the question that was asked on a SPORTS message board

And this is how you choose to respond

It was a simple question that YOU choose to complicate and/or take on a tangent. I don't actually want or care to know why, but it's a question you may need to ask your own self.

Etling is far from great, but he's also far from terrible. So far this year he's completing 58.4% of his passes; last year he was at 59.5%. He's averaged 8.2 yards/attempt at LSU. And he's thrown 14 picks in 346 passes. None of those numbers are excellent, but he's basically been fine.

So Brennan is better . . . but we need to let time tell if he's ready, so Etling might be better. Even if Brennan isn't ready though, there's no defense for playing Etling (even though he would be better if Brennan isn't ready, I'd assume). Alright, I'll admit it: I'm totally lost here.


quote:

he's slow on reads, he can't make tight throws. he's not great at feeling pressure.


Last year, Etling took 17 sacks. This year, he's taken 6. That's definitely too many, but it's not like he's being sacked 4 times a game. It's another aspect of playing QB at which he's basically acceptable, but nothing special.


quote:

He very much reminds me of a slightly better anthony jennings ( if Jennings was Average)


If it weren't for this part, I wouldn't have even bothered responding to this post. Anthony Jennings career passer rating at LSU was 116.5. Danny Etling's is 138.8. Anthony Jennings never completed over 49% of his passes in a season for LSU. Danny Etling has completed over 59% of his passes for LSU. Etling is far superior to Jennings . . . which really isn't saying much, but it's still worth pointing out. I'm really confused though, when you add in the, "If Jennings was Average" part. Are you saying that Etling is slightly above average? Because earlier in your post you said our QB play is terrible. So which is it?


quote:

Yeah, I pretty much agree with this. I just don't think his whiteness has anything to do with it.

Hey Coach O,

I'd say start Etling for a couple drives and then bring in Brennan for the rest of the game. Shouldn't you already know what you're gonna do?

How far did ole noodle arm toss it on first play of the 3rd qrtr Saturday?

Pretty sure it was a TD.


All of LSU's problems this year and you guys want to make a qb controversy.

No there isn't.


If you want to ask a relevant question replace etling and Brennan with Williams and guice.


Now There's a thread worth debating.
