With Bellomoy getting virtually zero playing time this year, even with open opportunities to do so, and Gardner making the switch to WR, I am curious as to who will be playing the majority of the snaps next year at QB.
I know there were discussions on how Bellomy looked impressive coming into this year, but with Hoke giving him less than minimal playing time in opportune games, it seems to me that they are not putting too much investment into his future playing time. I also Believe that Gardner can and will make a great WR the more and more he practices at it and will certainly make it to the next level as a WR as opposed to slim chances as a QB, therefore he should stay at WR in my opinion.
Therefore, my question is this: Will Shane Morris get the opportunity to play next year, maybe even be starting game 1?
My argument is this. Granted that I don't know a whole lot about SM's development and where he stands as of now (disregarding the fact hat he currently has mono :( ..), and top recruits are always a gamble, I'm going to assume anyways that he is a pretty solid player with Chad Henne-like potential (but hopefully better). With that said, assuming he looks good in the spring and summer, I think that even a shaky Shane Morris starting is better than Bellomy starting. The reason i think this is because Bellomy will be a junior going into next year and still have basically NO playing time under his belt. This takes the upside of Bellomy starting which WOULD be EXPERIENCE out of play, which really he doesn't have enough to matter. So we might as well take what will be a year where we really don't expect much anyways and get some very good experience under Shanes belt assuming he is our next guy at QB for the next couple of years.
Like I said, I don't really follow on much about him so I'm asking fellow MGOexperts what your opinions are and what you think will A.) be the smart thing to do from coach Hoke regarding the QB position next year & B.) what wcoach Hoke will actually do
If anyone really cared, i'm really hoping for SM to start the first game next year, do okay all year, then be phenominal the next 3 years. Hey a man can dream right?
