I've heard horror stories about Greg since he's been at 'Bama. His INT against Arkansas this year looked down right scary.
I'll give the young man his rightful and respectful shot, but he needs to do better than what most have seen.
When JPW was going through his nightmare last season, and never got pulled, I think that showed most people all they needed to know.
Just my thoughts.
I can't recall the play Greg threw an INT on vs Arkansas. I remember he had the INT, but don't recall the circumstances.
Greg is a smart one. I say that because some of the mistakes we saw out of JP when he was hurried aren't the kind of mistakes I would expect to see out of Greg.
FWIW, and I know it was against WKU, he looked pretty damn good in that game.
The pick against the Hogs was the first snap he took if memory serves. It was a 7-10 yard route that was right to the DB. It was a joke. He never threw a pass again in the game.
Not saying he can't be great, but he will take the controls with a shaky hand.
From what I know of GM, I can't put shaky hand in the same sentence.
Right after he signed he shot me an email one day asking about people I knew in the business community around the SE. Literally, before his first day of classes he was looking to establish networks (in the business world) for after his collegiate days.
I mention that because it goes a long way to describing the head he has on his shoulders. Granted, never talked to him in person, but I can say by his written words via email he comes across like a very stable guy (mentally.)
Simply put, he's not made of the same cloth as JP.
