Our Fitz will give their Fitz fits.

Keep this thread on ice until halftime. Or if you are a zealous mod feel free to delete.

That was NOT a late hit, he was still making a football play!  These new "player protection" rules are seriously impacting the way the game is played in a negative way.  Quarterbacks can start making these crazy jump-throws as they appear to be running out of bounds, knowing that they are untouchable.

I wish our receivers could get open...they seem to not be able to get separation.

I wish we had a run game with our running backs out of the pro set.

Question for the board: who do you think plays the quarterback position better...Devin or Denard?

Who the better athlete overall is NOT in question, just who do you think plays that position better.

What do you think?

I realize there are a lot of Denard enthusiasts on here, and for very good reason.  However,  I think that Devin has a perfectly adequate rushing game himself.  Not as flashy as Denard, but still very solid.  I also think that Devin may be a bit more multidimensional.  This is not a knock on Denard.  He's the most exciting player to play QB... maybe ever.  We do have two very solid options, obviously.

rushing yards have come on scrambles, not on designed runs. Devin's is  a very good athlete, but the big play ability running the ball is nowhere near the same. Somebody else already said it, but Denard is basically the entire designed running game for the offense, due to his ability to make up for subpar blocking upfront. Not having a designed running game at all, doesn't seem like an equal tradeoff for a better passing game.
