Point 1. Potts on Davey O'Brien watch list.
Point 2. Potts wins the "Air it Out" contest at the Manning Passing Academy. This contest involves hitting moving golfcarts with a football.
Point 3. Radio shows in Austin 104.9 had a show with Geoff Ketchum (orangebloods) where all of his sources were saying Potts was the man.
Point 4. Adam Zuvanich of the AJ had an article declaring that most people outside of Raider fans were thinking Potts would have the job.
Mr. Ketchum said that Sheffields success came either against weak teams: KSU, UNM, and that the Nebraska game was a team effort and SS's 234 yards didnt win the game. He also iowns orangebloods.com who would wince at the thought of a great qb being right under their nose and getting away (wait that happened again with Brewer ).
I live in Pflugerville but grew up in Lubbock...so you know who I am for. I used to coach HS football and it is so obvious to see the emotional lift and quality leadership that the team gets from Sheffield. Sheffield fits the mold of a very good passing quarterback that is mobile.
The statistics from last season favor Sheffield, who had a completion percentage of 74.3% to Potts’ 65.7%, a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 3.5 to Potts’ 1.7, and a QB of rating of 177.6 to Potts’ 137.1. That is an off the charts QB rating.
Adam Zuvanich said "Count me among those who think Potts will prevail in the preseason competition, just like he did the year before under Mike Leach. Potts has a better upside, with a bigger build and a stronger arm, and I think he'll turn out to be the better quarterback".
Anyway, I know it's still early. Both players have been hurt. Both players can be great but I just wanted to get some more opinions just because it's on my mind. I know its been beaten to death. I know the choice is not ours but Coaches Tuberville and Brown.
