On the verge of greatness

Comparing last year’s SEC quarterbacks’ passer ratings with this Athlon ranking of 2019 SEC quarterbacks makes me wonder if that Year of the Quarterback time is really upon us.

The league’s depth extends to the middle of the rankings with proven options like South Carolina’s Jake Bentley and Tennessee’s Jarrett Guarantano.

“Proven options”?  For real?  I mean, either some kids are on the verge of exploding on the scene (Kellen Mond, 10th in 2018 passer rating, 3rd on Athlon’s list, for example), or this is one unimpressive bunch, outside of the top two QBs.  Fortunately, one of those two plays for Georgia.

    Every year is THE year of the QBs in the SEC according to the pundits…

    He said “proven options.” Noooooobody said anything about “good” or even “serviceable.” Bad options are still options, ask any criminal defendant.
