Here’s an entertaining 30-minute look at what Todd Monken will have in his quarterback room this spring.
Beck vs. Vandagriff is one topic to follow. Wither JT? is another. With regard to the former, given Vandagriff’s physical issue, at least in the short run, it’s an open question for me. As for Daniels, I think the guys have it right when they say Monken’s Job One this offseason is working on JT’s mechanics.
That being said, JT’s got a high floor, to say the least, based on what he accomplished last season. Watch those clips from the Mississippi State game carefully. MSU sold out on defense — and the Bulldogs weren’t bad on that side of the ball — with the idea that they’d make a quarterback who hadn’t played in sixteen months and was coming back from a knee injury beat them. And Daniels did exactly that. His first touchdown pass to Pickens was, in my humble opinion, his most impressive throw of the year.
But the other thing from that game was the three-play series that culminated in the 3rd down TD bomb to Jackson. Watch all three plays in sequence and marvel at how Monken’s scheme has receivers open all over the field, play after play.
This offense has a chance to be special in 2021.
