    I think if he was good enough to start then he wouldíve been starting a long time ago. If Jacoby Brissett was good enough to earn a stewardship starter role based off 3 games then I believe there was enough film on AJís 4 games to make a decision. The NFL is quite aware of who AJ McCarron is by now and all 32 teams see him as a clipboard holder. He did get a real chance and didnít impress enough people to try to get him as a starter.

    The overall point is you are acting like Stidham is just this average qb that canít throw like AJ. But when you look at what it means to be a Patriots backup qb you realize you are going to get more than 3 starts for someone down the road. And the Patriots are one of the most selective when it comes to players... especially qbs. Heck they selected a qb that 90% of this board never heard of in the 2nd and let AJ plummet to the 5th round. That qb got a starting job as the Star qb a few years later. Point is the Patriots selected Stidham in a round that has a guaranteed contract, meaning they see some real potential in him.

    We definitely want the Auburn powers that be to always think he's at least the 6th best active HC...

    I'm not acting like anything. We just disagree.

    I love that AJM is getting a little love on TideFans. Strangely, you'd think he was just an average player who accidentally left with 3 NC rings and two of those as a starter.

    AJM's ship to be a starter in the NFL might have sailed, but this I know: he was a perfect fit for CNS those 3 years he started.

    I think Tua probably fits more of what CNS wants his offense to look like today, but I could easily see us going back to an offensive MO that used more of a drop back guy who maybe isn't the best athlete but who understands the game like AJM.

    Right now, we kinda have a guy who is pretty good with his feet and arm.

    In NFL its always the next great sensation until those QBs dont pan out but they will rinse repeat same formula even if it doesnt work

    I am not certain the brand of offense that we ran in those years would win it all in this day and age. In fact, I think it's good bit of the reason why we've knocked Georgia out of the NC race each of the past 2 years. Whether Kirby likes to admit it or not, he's pretty much built his program in the mold of the traditional Nick Saban scheme - not what we morphed to with Lane Kiffin. And I think that's why we ultimately beat them the past two years despite them getting the jump on us both times. We were more dynamic, and could adjust on the fly.

    UGA's current QB, Jake Fromm is from the same mold as AJ McCarron. Good leader, understands what the coach wants, manages the game plan, more than adequate passer and not so fleet afoot. Also great defensive support.

    Totally agree with you on that. The type of drive he engineered there is one that all QB's should be measured too. I don't get how AJ with two championship rings and a great performance in the playoffs as a NFL back up can be called a game manager.

    I believe you would agree that there remains a lot to be played out this year in terms of how several QB's will be viewed as NFL prospects. The obvious ones being Fromm, Tua, Hurts and Lawrence. That is without getting into the second tier and potential surprises.
    There will be many lines of print and pundit commentary between now and the NC. Then we will be into Mock Draft time. It will be interesting for sure!

    I agree the upcoming season will tell us a lot about the QBs you have mentioned. I don't see Fromm leaving UGA early so he has two more seasons to improve his stock. I am also not 100% sure Tua leaves after this season. I believe that being at OU will improve Jalen's stock at QB. I still believe at this point, Lawrence possesses the best skill set to make it in the NFL.

    I admit I dont watch preseason that much unless there is quarterback controversy, but someone sent me this. All I have to say is what Tom Brady and Josh Mcdaniels have done in a few months dwarfs what Gus did in two years with Stidham. He looks far more comfortable based on one game than he ever did with Auburn
