What if JG...

... doesn't play any better than he has?

Not a prediction. Certainly not a hope. If the players play better around him and he succeeds where the Dormady led Vols failed... then I'm happy. UT wins.

But I still maintain that Jones has badly mismanaged this whole situation. If he believed for any reason that JG was his QB of the future then he should have just made the call in January, let QD go wherever he wanted, and gotten JG ready to play. Who knows maybe S Jones would have stayed if he were the first back up?

Now... where does he go if JG doesn't play well? Back to Dormady whose little remaining self-confidence has now been ground to fine powder? McBride who is nowhere near ready?

Dormady may be among the tiny percentage of people who can get up from something like this. But... this sure looks like a one-way street for Jones.

He will get benched and QD will go in.

Both QBs have had to play with the unnecessary added pressure of getting the hook after a few bad plays all season long.

There's a chance JG plays better than QD, but it's not because he's a better passer. It's because our Wide Receivers are playing terrible, and even when they do get open, QD can't seem to hit 'em unless it's the 4th Quarter. If we can't throw the ball worth a crap anyway, we might as well take the QB who can run the ball better.

Still a major indictment of Butch regardless IMO. No excuse for our WRs to be this horrible. No excuse for QBs to be throwing the ball this poorly in Year #5. I think this is really Butch's undoing. At no point in the past 5 years can I remember saying "we have great QB play." Now that we're on our 3rd Offensive Coordinator, 2nd WR coach, and 3rd QB coach, I think we can safely say the common denominator here is Butch.

It's not really JG or QD's fault. Bring in someone who can actually coach QBs and WRs and I suspect the results would improve quickly.

If have two OBs you don't have one. Butch needs (prays) one of 'em has a breakout game and demonstrates consistency, resilience .

Win or lose, short of a 9-3 season, Butch is out of here in my opinion.

It's a huge combination of reasons that go back 3 years.

I hope JG comes out and smoke SC and we turn things around. I also hope we have a new coach next year. I can't support Butch's mismanaging the team, not playing the best players, and not having the team ready to play.

We all say Butch recruits well, but does he?? We have a bunch of kids that look good on paper, don't get in a heap of trouble, but can't seem to run or throw or catch or block consistently.

If you are a Vol fan, you hope JG plays well and the team wins. Leave it at that.

It is a lose-lose situation for Butch. JG plays well we'll all ***** and moan Butch was stupid not to start him all along. If he plays horribly we'll blame Butch for not developing a better quarterback.

I get it, CBJ has lost some of you forever and short of revealing himself as the second coming of Jesus Christ himself you hate him and want him fired. So it won't matter what our team does from now on.

The head coach and offensive coordinator need to put the guys in position to make something happen. Good play calling can help these guys succeed.

This. Plus CBJ said in Monday's press conference that Will was 1 play away from being in there. So I assume QD is not number 2. Who knows?

Meh, I've got enough to be upset with Jones about without worrying over the back-up playing. After the spring game I would have played Dormady also.

I know you can make an argument against pulling him 2 games in a row but not the first coach to flip QBs around.
I swear I thought Spurrier was changing by the series if not the play, once upon a time.

Jones is doing too many things that good coaches don't do for me to worry about one that I've seen several other coaches do before him.

I agree but doesn't that leave UT even worse off than they were?

Not sure it can be undone now. Maybe QD is just that mentally tough and would play well if re-inserted. I just haven't seen many people in any walk of life recover from where he is without a major change of scenery.
