Quick draw

Stetson Bennett ain’t wasting time out there.  Whatever Monken’s cooking up, he’s on it at the snap.

    This is starting to remind me of Fromm’s first year. Many thought he was holding the seat for Eason to get well, but he captured the team and Eason couldn’t get his job back. If Stetson keeps on, the coaches aren’t going to be able to make a move–and that might be a good thing.

  2. I expect Tennessee’s secondary to be much better which could force Bennett to hold onto the ball longer.

    I suspect this game could be what I thought the Auburn game would about- turnovers. I expect out D to play well but can their D help their O by forcing us to turn it over. Of course, you can easily say the same for Tennessee.

    That’s what I noticed right away about SB4: he is decisive and gets the ball out quick. I’m looking forward to seeing how much Tennessee has improved and if Kirby will have our team ready to play. I don’t get the sense there’s a lull or complacency coming off a “big win” with Alabama on the horizon – that we’re overlooking UT. I haven’t not had that feeling in the past.

    Also, where’s Heisman Front Runner Kyle Trask?

      I guess somewhere in 6-14?

      Thing is, they’re so much smarter than everyone else they can just take their time. No need for all this nonsense.

    • They have throw a lot of deeper balls. so, more time.

      This isn’t a list of best QB’s this year. Just because you get it out quick doesn’t mean you’re effective. Corral and Costello are towards the bottom and Mond is towards the top and those first two are much better. It’s more a reflection on what kind of offense you’re running although it can be a sign of effectiveness.

    He might hold the ball a bit longer to stretch Tennessee out targeting Pickens and co. deep a few times, but in any case, I have no complaints about play calling in the first 2 games.

      Incredibly refreshing, isn’t it?

    I’ve been comparing him to Hutson Mason but his elusiveness does set him apart quite a bit. Is there such a thing as a game manager with wheels?

    • I believe they call that a play maker.

        His mobility is the one thing that keeps me from writing him off as a stopgap until one of the others steps up. Any QB we’ve started since Shockley gets sacked at least twice on plays that Bennett got away from. And he’s the first real threat to actually keep the ball on an option. Both of those are so incredibly valuable.

        • I dont know that he will be doing many options. But I do know and like that he will run for what he can if he has too. His danger meter is really on point. Football IQ is what it is.

        • I can’t quite go that far. Aaron Murray was very athletic (remember the near 50 yard run vs UT when all the WRs lost their knees), and he freelance ran a ton his freshman year (before Bobo talked him out of it.)

            Aaron also did a good job of extending the play to buy time to throw. Guys like Rodgers kill people just by being mobile enough to buy some time to throw even if they aren’t Jackson.

    Bennett is very decisive but there were also several times where he went through his progressions quickly. So he’s not just chucking it out there to the first guy he sees. When you know the routes and options, you can still be quick and not take risks.

    It appears that SB4 has always been good from the perspective of being able to scramble and throwing a good ball but I think the coaches perceived him as a bit of a risk taker trying to make a spectacular throw into tight coverage. He apparently did a good imitation of Baker Mayfield leading up to the Rose Bowl. Maybe on his long journey to reach this point, he has matured and won’t take those unwarranted risks that lead to turnovers.
