Good article on SDS today with some good film breakdowns

I certainly like what I see in Newman, and it will be refreshing to enjoy one year of a true & seasoned dual threat QB. But I'm going on record right now and saying that I'm reserving my excitement until I see what Newman looks like against SEC defenses and a completely different playbook and offensive philosophy from what he ran at WF. He's also facing defenses in the SEC that are orders of magnitude faster and bigger than what he faced in the ACC. The thing that struck me in watching some of those videos was how slow the ACC defenses are. It's almost as if some of them are in slow motion compared to what we're used to seeing.

To be effective from Game 1, my money says he's sitting with Monken, Faulkner, and Coley and discussing the creation of the playbook and learning it from the ground up. Not a lot of transfer QB's get the chance to essentially review and provide input to the playbook as its being crafted. So that goes in his favor, vs. a transfer QB that comes into an established system. Still, for Newman, there's a lot of kinks that have to be worked out that can only be worked out on the playing fields in the fall. Let's hope those are minor and short lived, because our schedule gets real in week #3.

I like him, but I have a general philosophy that you can't trust highlight films.

If you want to really figure a player out, look at the plays that didn't make the highlight reel.

Little doubt that the learning curve will affect Coley and Newman more so than Monken and Faulkner. Both of the last two mentioned have coached together prior to partnering up in Athens. Monken worked with Jameis in Tampa extensively. Much of what he "taught" got through, "much" did not. Film shows Jamies' arm and leg talent, wish often that Jake had been blessed with a better set of "wheels". One thing about Jake, what he had between the ears often not the case with other quarterbacks . . . . and coaches.

Could not agree more with the statement yd1 about receivers going and getting the ball. Coach Monken will be all about receivers going after the ball. Coach Monken had Winston throwing to a "spot". Timing is everything with this offensive coach. Monken will spend about as much time with the receiving corps as the quarterbacks. Matter of fact, he will have receivers and quarterbacks in the same film room together . . . . often.

I'm wondering what the competition will reveal. Will Beck or Vandergriff step up to challenge for the job, or is this a forgone decision? Honestly, were not exactly hurting at qb for talent, but I wonder who really wants the spot?
