Brennan perspective
Did he have a good game? No, I don’t think anyone can stand here and say that. He took way too long to go through his progressions. But if I told you in 2014 that in 2020 we’d have a QB in his SEC debut throw for over 300 yards with 3 TDs, the 2 picks were cuz his arm was hit and a hail marry, and we scored 34 you’d all take that and run to the bank. That’s a bad game and he did that. If he improves, which I think he will, we’re cooking

re: Brennan perspective
Don’t forget the 46 attempts the most we had in 2014 was 26 attempts

re: Brennan perspective
the game was moving just a hair too fast for brennan, imo. not too, too fast, just a little bit. it was his first start. if he can settle down a little, and I think he needs to realize how important it is to take off and get 4-6 yards running instead of throwing the ball away....

with a brand new team and a first starter he looked allright. threw some nice balls - hell, we scored 34 points and got screwed out of a score at the end of the game with some really weird officiating. maybe they were protecting the betting on the over/under. it was strange.

19 of the last 20 years we would have won the game with 34 points.

re: Brennan perspective
Brennan had a terrible first half. However, he got better when we got the running game more involved.

re: Brennan perspective
Brennan will certainly improve as the season progresses - how much is the question. Some QBs never get rid of the nervousness or develop pocket presence. If he does, the offense will be fine, but the defense is another story.

I think he’ll improve but he’s more Danny Etling than Joe Burrow. He has a better arm than Etling but he’s not as athletic

FALSE.

On 29 of his 46 passes (that is nearly 2 out of 3 attempts), he got the ball out in less than three seconds. He completed 72 percent of those throws.

When he was unsure he held it too long, but that was on a little more than a 3rd of his throws.

He needs to work on his consistency and recognition at the line. He could probably work on protection calls as well.

To say he holds the ball too long most of the time is simply not based on FACTS.

Three seconds is a literal eternity. Not a good benchmark

This. We went 3 and out to many times in the first half, the defense was on the field the whole half with nothing working on offense. Offense looked pedestrian. Not being able to run the ball with these backs is inexcusable. The oline was a major fail. And that defensive line is not stellar. We will face much better dlines than this. Florida, Auburn, Bama, TAM for starters.
