Have we seen enough of Nick Sheridan yet? RR seems to have a hard on for the guy but he clearly struggles come game time.
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
I thought maybe he got stuck in there because they were evaluating Threet's injury.
Or maybe just to confirm that he shouldn't start.
Threet had a cramp and they were working on him. I think Sheridan would have been in for a series at most but instead he got in there and threw 2 picks.
Sheridan's just a college kid who's trying his best. They put him in late in the game, down 18 points, in crappy weather. It's not exactly a recipe for success. Instead of talking about Sheridan, let's instead talk about how good Threet looked.
Who's worse, John Kitna or Sheridan? I laugh when Kitna throws deflating interceptions because it's the Lions. When Sheridan does it I cry.
Kitna gets paid to play like shit, Nick is just a college kid who didn't even have a scholarship last year. You make the call on that one.
Why did you switch your avatar from a self portrait to the back of some chick's head?
that was the guy in front of me at the Utah game
i watched some of the game again and I didn't realize Threet was out hurt. but in all fairness to Sheridan, his first int was just a little high, may have even skipped off Butler's helmet. looked pretty catchable to me and would have been a TD. so he had a good first drive, mainly due to a long pass to Babb. but even that pass was thrown a little high and short, kind of a 30 or 40 yard jump ball. the last int was a floater into double coverage
Sheridan's first drive was decent, just didn't finish it off. A couple of people have pointed out that they thought Butler was late in turning and looking for the ball. The timing might have been just slightly off on both Sheridan and Butler's part. Int.
Seriously, down 18, in a monsoon, and his 3rd game. Sherridan didn't have any type of Clausen hype. Don't expect the world from him He went in and played hard.
Nothing went right for UM in that game. He didn't lose the game.
I'm sure in a year or 2, he'll be a great back up to Forcier.
Sheridan made a bad decision on the long INT. The INT by Butler is a number of small things going against the play. On the whole, he looked better than he did in game 1.
He moved the team down the field. sca1zi's point about Sheridan being a servicable back-up is probably accurate and a decent outcome for us for a player who came in as a walk-on.
sca1zi - what about Threet? Are you predicting he'll transfer?
I'm sure Sheridan's a great kid, but he just doesn't have the ability to be a D-I QB. All the experience in the world (which he won't get from here on out, anyway) won't change that.
... he'll be a 9th year jr somewhere.
As far as Sheridan goes... how many snaps has this kid actually taken? And you can predict his future on 30 or less snaps?
Yes, right now, his passing is scary as hell. He's young. I wouldn't pass judgement until next year.
