    I value this more than a QB who can take off faster than anyone on the field. Tim Beck's offense was dangerous because Briscoe's ability to do this so well. He was able to buy time for his receivers to get open, as I don't care how much of a lock down corner you are, you can't cover someone consistently for 3-4 seconds at this level. His scrambling kept the defense honest as well as caused fatigue on the LB/DLine. Account that with his decision making and arm strength, he was able to make defenses pay, even though he wasn't the fastest QB in the world (4.7 in the 40).

    Agreed.

    TM does not seem to be able to scramble one iota. He just runs into the nearest defensive lineman.

    I am sorry but I have had it with Taylor cannot do this Taylor cannot do that. Are there things he could do better? Yes there is but there are some things he does quite well but we never hear about them only what he cannot do.

    I'm not sure Martinez has the physique to do that. Not a knock on him....just a different build.

    The offense wasn't the problem so much last year (ok except for that stretch at wisco with 3 ints). I believe the offense was efficient, I think it would be a lot more efficient if they had the luxury of letting Taylor run. I think it would make a bigger difference if he as turned loose to run, vs becoming a better passer. He is what he is. Hopefully the backups doing good, so Taylor can run.

    Ha ha. Let me clarify. Taylor should run a lot. By which I mean run, often, because he's fast...when he's running he can really run, so run and run often. Run run run. Run it some more.

    While I am at the stream of consciousness I will go ahead, read GFOAs thoughts ( both of them)........" Bo is evil, you lapdogs are suckers, and it's hilarious how the stadium says greatest fans of all cause you are a bunch of rubes.....yay SEC"

    Are you allowed to go to a sushi place and critique what you're eating, even though you have no idea how to make it yourself? Can you complain about the way a car is built, even though you don't have the equipment or know-how to build one better?

    The answer to both question is yes. I watch enough football (just ask my fiancée ) to know what good footwork and throwing mechanics motions look like. If I could, in fact, produce a better throwing motion/footwork/decision making, chances are I'd be a QB and not a teacher.

    So if only skilled players of a specific position are allowed to criticize other such players, then I hope your posting record is squeaky clean.

    That being said, I know where you're going with this. Fans don't throw players under the bus. I get that. But I don't think Sonuva or I did any such thing. So cool down.

    I am not a fan of the ridicule of young amateur players who have invested in the NU program and have shown loyalty to it over considerable time in the face of significant criticism. All signs are that Taylor has recognized his shortcomings and been making a legitimate attempt to improve. And in the pic that was used to illustrate his poor form, he still probably threw it over 50 yds.

    You haven't been paying attention, someone mentioned he can run really really fast in a straight line...............chill out, lighten up, etc.....we are having fun. We are at a loss of a spring game and we are staring at a long offseason ahead of us. If you are that frustrated you might not want to sign on for a few months.........BECAUSE I HAVE JOKES FOR DAYS......

    Edit: This just in, Martinez attempted to a piece of paper in the trash can during class without getting out his seat and it was deflected by..........the back of his head.....
