Jarrett Lee has a legit chance of starting

44 posts in this topic

This news is extremely exciting. All reports out of spring practice indicate Lee has been the best by far. Chris Low says he thinks Lee has a very good chance of being the starter. Miles has said hes not counting Lee out. Those of you getting all excited, dont be. Lee is a good QB and we have WR's this year that care and dont give up on routes like Byrd. Hopefully Lee can take what he does in practice and transfer it to the game. Make your sarcastic remarks because Lee has all the tools to get it done but lets hope the fan base is open too it.

FWIW it wouldnt surprise me. Some fans think Jefferson is the second coming of christ when hes proven to at times be a liability. Miles gets a ton of heat for the Ole Miss game but Jefferson deserves just as much.

1) Hes the QB he has to realize he doesnt have enough time to spike but hes not the brightest crayon in the box.

2) He took a huge sack when he should have just thrown the ball away.

Even when he makes a good choice to throw it out he gets booed. The fans will be on of his biggest challenges. Hopefully there are others like me that still lie him and want him to get another shot.

Yeah there's obviously been a lot of trust issues between Lee and the fanbase. If this happens, a lot of LSU fans will be ready to hang Miles without even giving Lee a chance. I can't imagine how it is to go out there for the team you love in your own school and get booed off the field numerous occasions. Lee wasn't ready to take that starting job as a true freshman back then and it really hurt him. But he's a junior now and maybe he can turn it around but the fans have got to get behind him. This is still a kid we're talking about here.

Last year fans used the excuse that Jefferson was 19. Lee was 19 but nobody gave him sympathy. I was embarrassed to be an LSU fan 2 years ago for the Ole Miss game. Everyone started cheering when he got hurt.

Lee is one helluva good sport. He has taken criticism and hung in there like a champ. I hope he does get a chance. He can throw better than Jefferson but he can't evade tacklers when the pocket collapses like Jefferson can. I am also hoping that Christ Garrett will get some looks as well.

In 2009, we were plagued with one of the worst OLs in the SEC. If that is fixed, any of our three QBs should be able to make some noise. Also, with WRs Rueben Randle, Terrence Tolliver, and Russell Shepard, the QBs have some really exciting targets.

The WR's for LSU should be scary good. I just don't like your options at the QB position. Doesn't "pick 6" always look great in practice and then do a complete 180 during the game?

I can see LSU's rationale here. It's time for change. Jefferson isn't getting any better. They have to do something.

Yes but apparently his improvement from last year to this year is "unbelievable"

They are hoping that with maturity he can overcome some of his nerves and preform to his potential which is sky high

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't they only have one truly proven receiver in Tolliver?

Hell this could turn out to be another Chris Todd situation. He could end up being solid.

I think that Jefferson, while more athletic, is a dummy. If Lee can have better awareness, he will make better decisions than Jefferson ever could.

Ceman is right, Tolliver and Randle are going to be great. Russell Sheppard will also be very useful and used in a wide variety of packages.

Lee was a boy thrust into a man's job. He may be better now. Besides, those were some pretty ridiculous Bama teams he was chunking passes at too, man.

Absolutely, he was a third string freshman thrown into a starting job after Perrilloux was dismissed and Hatch got hurt

wow! when did jefferson get so dumb?? was it the ole miss game when the head coach couldnt get a play in or at least the field goal team? he played one year and now he's a lost cause to get better? he was NEVER as bad as lee. i had hopes lee would bounce back, but if you cant make plays against la tech then its time to move on. btw, jefferson made the dean's list last fall.

      LSU just canned Les Miles.    Was reading tiger rant last night, and dude came on and called it for 4pm today. Guess there really are some insiders over there.   Orgeron interim.

      I'm assuming Armada might take over as interim(for some reason this was included in my quote as well?)

      He's definitely earning his check.  I've watched all of y'alls games this year and it just seemed like Tennessee was either playing to their competition or wasn't on the same page or I don't know what....spurts of really great football and then spurts of what the hell?   The difference this year is y'all have been able to overcome those things early in the season.  I think this win is going to be the galvanized game that takes y'all to Atlanta as much as it pains me to say it.

      What he was good at doing this past off-season is hiring Bob Shoop. I had the incredible pleasure of watching John Chavis coordinate our defense for over a decade here, and Bob Shoop brings me memories of Chavis' defenses. So good at halftime adjustments. How many DCs in this game can gameplan to overcome losing 3 of their top 4 players, when those 3 will all be drafted in the first two rounds?(Sutton and JRM this upcoming draft, and Kirkland whenever he decides to leave) If Shoop isn't one of the top candidates for the Broyles award(top assistant coach in college football) so far, the award is a sham.
