1st TEAM QB Jeff Driskell is horrible, terrible, the reason they lost GA, didn't play for SEC Champ, Natl Champ and lost the Sugar Bowl.


And Bridgewater played great in that game. In Bridgewater's few games against top competition, he has played great. Bortles has been exposed to more of these games and has not played as well as Bridgewater. Giving him credit just because he played those teams is ridiculous.

For some it easy to understand, that it's all to easy to pad your stats when you schedule weak sisters that allow for you to complete 80% of your passes, throw for 5 TDs and then take a seat on the bench for most of the 2nd half a couple of times a year. Then there are others who don't understand it or are in denial, making excuses and refuse to face the reality of the situation and find no difference between Ohio, Florida International, Missouri State and schools like South Carolina, Penn State, Ohio State and Missouri.

Perhaps we should just draft Logan Thomas instead. I mean he did play against Alabama, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Duke, Boston College, Miami, Maryland, and UCLA this year. It shouldn't matter that Bridgewater or Bortles played better against their top competition, Thomas has been exposed to more and has played against a much higher level of competition.
and the idea of drafting Logan Thomas is a perfect example of those that engage in some very irrational thinking. Sometimes they just don't make any sense.
