    Maybe, but it certainly didn't look like it in games. He hit the freshman receivers in stride. He completed passes to the seniors, but it just wasn't the same. So something was different, and I think it was reps. Admittedly, I could be wrong.

    Part of that can be attributed to them all playing together during the summer before their senior year as well as playing together in All Star games.

    Certainly possible - reps count - all reps count.

    Anyway, we`ll damn sure know a lot more about Mac Jones as we head into summer.

    He is most definitely the beneficiary of this. Hope he has good spring.

    Let' not forget about Jalen. He is your best QB should something happen to Tua during the season. This injury should help the entire team stay behind Jalen. You may need him at some point this year. He needs to continue to improve.

    Just watching the QB's during the media period yesterday I came away with some observations, admittedly with a very small sample size.

    Dan Enos will have a very positive impact to overall QB effectiveness. It is a world apart from the way Daboll worked with them last year.

    Jalen was very focused and throwing the ball with good arm speed.

    I tend to think that what has held JH back has been 1)him having an opportunity to mature to what is required at this level of competition and the confidence that comes with maturity.
    2) Having consistent coaching on an everyday basis to enable him to become all he can be.

    Can he improve his passing accuracy? I believe so. Can he improve his decision making? I believe he will make dramatic improvements under Enos.

    I expect JH to be a very good QB by the time we get to Louisville in the fall. How he compares to Tua who has a spectacular arm and QB instincts. A call CNS has to make!

    If Mac Jones sees meaningful snaps at Alabama we are in trouble.

    Many thought the same thing about Cardale Jones. Stay supportive of all of your players. You never know when you might need them, nor do you know what you might get from them when the time comes.

    I disagree. We have no idea to what degree a kid will develop both physically and mentally from one year to the next.

    I could definitely be wrong, but I haven't seen it from him. Maybe he's improved *a lot*. I would be very nervous if he had to start a game against a quality opponent

    He's only been on campus a year. Give the kid some time.

    Amen! Kids reach maturity at different ages. It causes me to wonder what Greg McElroy looked like at the same age.

    Someone has already mentioned his name, but think back to Greg McElroy. Could you imagine what he looked like his freshman year going against the one's, heck, even the two's? Lost as a goose. But ultimately developed into an efficient quarterback that played a big role in us winning a title and winning a lot of games. Everyone doesn't develop at the same rate. Don't give up on him just yet.
