As I stated in another thread, I'm fine with Embree going with the veteran for game #1, but when we lost that game and QB play was not good, I'm not sure why Hirsch never got a serious look.
Makes sense to me.
I don't know, Nik. I have not seen him complete a pass to anyone that wasn't his first look. No progression at all and he does not stand in the pocket. Glad he is a Buff but I am not seeing a lot here.
I'm trying to pick out the tallest midget here.
Edit: At least he can throw a slant and also puts up a catchable deep ball.
I admire your continued hope and wish I could share your delusion.
looks like he gave you four reasons today.
He was recruited to CU by Hawkins, that's why.
Yeah. It was a tough call for the coaches on this one. Hirsch and Wood show flashes but can't read a defense. Webb can read a defense and doesn't make many mistakes, but is incabable of making a play to help us win.
I still would have gone with Hirsch (or Wood) and seen if the player developed over the course of the season. Webb was obviously not going to take us anywhere.
Hirsch obviously threw some risky balls, and made some poor decision, but the offense looks much, much better when he's leading it.
From the 10 minutes of the game I watched it didn't look like he was very accurate with his throws and couldn't lead a receiver properly.
He is not very good. He would not have been any better.
You have to remember who we played. We may have beat some of the lesser teams, but he would have throw 7 ints against Stanford.
Edit: And by lesser I mean CSU and Sac State. That's it. Obviously, not Utah.
Utah's defense is no slouch. Not Stanford good but still a pretty good unit...except today.
Hirsch is who we thought he was. We all knew what his strengths were and what his limitations were, and both were on display today. I agree with NM that he could have led us to wins against CSU and Sac State, but that's about all the difference I could see.
If he had been starting since game four or so he would have a rhythm and could have posted a great game. Utah is almost as terrible as we are. Best passes I've seen all season came today
I didn't see one bit of progress in any aspect of this team. Not any squad on the field, not any play-calling and not skill-development.
He was consistently off target, even on most completed passes.
That does not contradict TimmyDUBs statement about it being the best passing of the season.
He threw 4 interceptions today? I didn't realize that until I got home. They are all 3rd string QB's.
Throws the hell out of a slant and can do what little Hawk and Webb couldn't do; get rid of the ball and put it out of bounds or in the stands. He put it what 2, 3 times in the stands? No progressions though. What killed me was that throw along with Kasa and other TE's were there all year long. Got to be able to throw to space or see over the line.
I think the point Nik is making, and all of you, is that though Hirschman still isn't great, he is the best of the lot. So, it isn't an argument about Hirshman's ability, it is that he is better than Webb, Wood, and um, um, Strock?
Yes, Hirschman probably should have started. I don't think it would have mattered, except for the first two games of the year. But I don't even know about that, considering how terrible the playcalling was in those games.
He wasn't great, but he was better than who we trotted out there for most of the season. It shows on the score sheet for Arizona and Utah
I hate to say this, but I don't think Hawk loses to CSU, Sac St or Utah.
4-8 is not much better than 1-11, but well, it is better.
Tony Jones probably threw one of the better passes of the season.
The same reason Thomas gets the ball once a game...Jon DThree and Eric Blowenemy cannot see talent.
