    Anybody else think this kid has the makings of a great, not good, quarterback?

    I think he looked very, very good on Saturday. These next two games will show us a lot more, but for a redshirt freshman, he looks like he has the tools and the talent to take CU to the next level, and then take himself to the NFL.

    Good decision on Hawk making him the starter.

    :thumbsup:

    I think he can be a very good, Klatt-esque college QB but I don't think he has the arm stregth to play in the NFL. I think CU is in good hands with him at the helm, though.

    He is a leader and winner, and I see him doing big things in Boulder. However, his size and arm strength will prevent him from being a good NFL QB. He might be able to work on his arm strength however.

    I thought he looked pretty good for a youngun. He needs a bit more discipline in the pocket and a couple better, lemme rephrase, improved WR's and TE's and I think he'll work out nicely. No power on his arm???? I thought he had some horsepower on his arm, I like that.

    I guess I didn't see any problems with his arm. They said that about Detmer too. The key is good decision-making and working the short routes anyway. Looks to be a good one to me.

    No problem with his arm, but he doesn't have much zip on the ball when he's throwing it 25-30+ yards. Not many do, but then again, there's not that many QB spots in the NFL, either.

    Not ragging Cody in the slightest. If he could do what Klatt did here (hopefully with a better supporting cast than Klatt had), CU is in great shape. I don't think Klatt gets enough credit for being a very solid QB at CU.

    He'll be on the CU coaching staff in 5 years.

    We didn't see CU try to go vertical. He was good hitting the short and middle receivers. I can't remember seeing him have to just fire a ball into coverage. So, I'm not sure how his arm strength is. I thought on the flea flicker, he under threw the ball. Of course he had a guy in his face, so he was kind of falling backwards as he released it. Now, maybe a guy with great arm strength could have muscled that out another 5 yards or so and avoided the INT. But that is being very picky.

    Thats exactly what I think he will be doing as well, and I think that he will be very good at it.

    I saw him connect on several passes into coverage and he was money. One of his biggest strengths is accuracy. I don't think he'll be picked a lot.
