Ok, now we finally have a starter in place, and yes it's not the starter most of us were hoping for... But honestly I see it having tremendous potential. We all know Potts has the physical gifts to be an outstanding QB, he just made some bonehead decisions that would cost us BIG TIME. Now when you look at Leach's system, it was almost all put on the QB, plays being called at the line and check offs/audibles as well... Honestly this was never Potts' strong suit. Brown has already said that the plays are coming from him 100%, which honestly bodes well for Potts, take away the mental distress of choosing plays and just giving him what he needs to run is probably why he was always so great in practice and not in game situations under Leach. I mean we all use Harrell as the litmus test but most of us forget that his father was a coach, and he was raised around coaching, some of these concepts are harder to grasp for other QBs. Another thing to look at is that Brown has apparently been working on the throwing off the back foot, which was his other major fault, if that has indeed been worked on I'm thinking this is going to be a good choice.
Potts completely earned my respect last year, true I am a Sticks man and would have picked him #1 there is no denying what Potts persevered through last season... College football is hard enough without having your fan base turn on you, but week after week he stuck it out and never had a bad word to say about it... I don't care who you are that takes GUTS. I personally wish the best for this kid and hope the student fan base embraces him.
