    Worse Quarterback - Tyler Russell of MSU or Jeff Driskel of Florida?

    Watched both games and came away shaking my head at both. I know Drexel is only a Sophomore, but he has a long way to go before he can lead that team to a championship.

    Both QBs hold the ball too long and make poor reads. Both had chances to run, and both seemed to run into the sack instead of the gap about 8 times out of 10.

    Considering the talent around each, who is worse?

    Driskel... Jeff Driskel, not Drexel.. I guess if I had to choose one or the other, I would take Tyler Russel.

    I got Wittek (USCw) and FSU's guy right there with them. Simply terrible performances by the entire lot. I hope to see a similar effort from Mr. Golson.

    I don't really fault Wittek for a poor performance since he was starting his second game. The entire team was pathetic on Monday, and that falls on Lane Kiffin.

    EJ Manual has been hyped for awhile now and rarely lives up to it. The playcalling by FSU on Tuesday made me wonder if ESPN paid them to keep the game interesting. Not even sure why he was throwing the ball.

    Hands down, Russell was terrible. Throw in the fact that he seemed to roll his eyes at the coaches trying to correct him and he "wins" this contest in a landslide. Driskel wasn't good and that first INT put UF in a huge hole, but it was just a tipped pass with a defender in the right place at the right time; Russell threw into coverage a lot and had one pick where he just lobbed it up to midfield when MSU still had a fighting chance (rather than just throw it away).

    Driskel is a fine QB, and I expect him to have a solid career at Florida. Most of his INTs this season that I have seen have come on tipped passes, so the Gators need to work on that part of their game. Russell had the worst game of his life and handed that game to Northwestern on a platter. Not sure what to take away from a performance that bad.

    Driskel's biggest problem - at least last night - is that he was telegraphing his passes. Not sure that he looked off his primary receiver once.

    Russell is just not that good. Period.

    Driskel also had poor O-line play, and he held on to the ball too long. I didn't see Russell play, but I thought Driskel was pretty bad.

    Russell is apparently the classic case of an average QB padding stats against bad competition. I would take Driskel in a heartbeat over him. He led his team to some big wins this season. Florida still has a long way to go, as evidenced by their close calls against the likes of Bowling Green and LaLaffeyette. Louisville is a good team, and I'm not terribly surprised they won, but it was a shock to see them dismantle the Gators. All of this comes down to discipline. It's something Muschamp will have to address, otherwise, he won't be long for that job.

    A team often reflects the way they view the head coach. True disciplinary type coaches have teams that play disciplined football. I don't like the way CWM acts on the sideline but that's his way. Coach Saban goes berserk sometimes too, but notice the difference in the the teams on field. Something is missing off the field just like UGA and Aubs.
