He's thrown a bunch of touchdowns against teams like Kentucky and Jacksonville State; aside from that, what has he done this season without Adams/Childs/Wright?
My opinion on Gabbert the Pro and Gabbert the prospect aren't that much better. He's improved yes, but he's still one of the worst QBs I've ever seen. This goes back to his college days, where he was absolutely horrid at Mizzou.
You also compared the spread offenses. Mizzou and Arkansas couldn't be any further apart. When Gabbert was at Mizzou, they were running a variation of the Purdue "catch and throw" quick pass spread (but with Air Raid offensive line splits, because Pinkel liked the wrinkle after playing one of Leach's teams).
Ryan Tannehill threw a bunch of TDs against bad teams and sucked against good ones. You guys have GOT TO STOP TAKING THE EASY WAY OUT WITH THE NARRATIVE SCOUTING. What did HE do or not do well?
I see you with the pre-emptive scrambling, though, but I've only seen him do it a few times. Whereas with Gabbert, it was every other snap.
