I was prepared to trash his take on the Georgia quarterbacking situation, but, you know what? This isn’t half bad:
On the ESPN College Football Podcast, Herbstreit said Daniels has a high football IQ, according to offensive coordinator Todd Monken.
“He’ll make a throw, whether it’s a touchdown or an incompletion or an interception, kind of the same guy, right?” Herbstreit told Matt Barrie, via On3. “Monken told me this year his pre-snap ability to look into the eyes of a difference, he said, is elite. … He’s still trying to master the system and where to go with the ball, if they move pre-snap to post.
As for Bennett, Herbstreit believes he brings a different skillset.
“He has a chip on his shoulder,” Herbstreit said. “Everyone’s told him he sucks. Everyone’s told him, ‘Look at you. What? You’re not the quarterback at Georgia.’ He takes all that personally. I think he’s doing a better job of protecting the ball. … He does just enough wiggle and just enough ‘screw you’ kind of approach that the combination of those two things provides the intangibles that you need, that fit with everything else Georgia has going for them.”
