We all know about JG’s inconsistencies in the past. We also now see that at times his experience and knowledge can get us a W in some tight spots. I have been pretty critical of his performance thus far going as far to say I wish he would just quit or transfer.
I’m walking that back. I’m glad he is in orange and I hope he sticks around for next year!
anyone else agree?

He has overcome some adversity I will give him credit. I don't think we win without him last night, Mauer suddenly looked like a freshman again. Perfect backup QB. 6 for 6 off the bench to open the 2nd half.
I think him not getting any reps last week really hurt him. If he was not able then I get that but if he was ready then he should had gotten some reps. He has a high ceiling but he had some good moments last night. Tn biggest problem is they have no running game and continue to run up the middle, they run decent on the edges but zero up the middle.

I hope they give him the ball against MO to start and he plays lights out. He needs to string together good perdormances in games we should win for me to be convinced. Having said that, he pushed us over the finish line last night by cutting back into the D, took a huge hit on his left arm and made the first. Earlier in the year he stepped out when the heat came. He earned the start against MO.

It's my honest belief that JG is better than we all realize. He hasn't had an OL that was worth owl poop during his time here. Now the OL is doing at least an adequate job. If that OL gets any better than it is playing now, I think we won't be surprised at a wholly new JG, but utterly, though pleasantly shocked.

Something has changed with JG. Maybe he was humbled by being benched, maybe he was putting too much pressure on himself to be perfect, maybe by sitting for a while and watching BM he realized his shortcomings but for whatever reason I think he playing his best ball in two years and I hope he continues to play well. That said, I believe Bailey is the future. After having watched him at Marietta this year I believe he is the real deal and will be a game changer and I wouldn't mind rolling with him next year even though he's only a freshman ... a la Jake Fromm.

Don't really know what to think. Been crtical
myself of him. His weak point is inconsistent
from week to week. Wish him the best and hope he can overcome it. Agree he plays better coming off the bench instead of being a starter. I think it's him and Maurer the rest of the season. Shrout seems to be in JP' s dog house.

With his play last night, he has shown why he gives us the best chance to win. He handles the offense better than the others.

His biggest problem is inconsistency. We don't really know is Shrout or Maurer is any more consistent. As long as he doesn't make boneheaded plays, I support the way coach is using him.
