If he had Bama offense maybe. You still haven’t said how Hurts would be if he played for Missouri.
NOW you didn't answer my question... WHO do you want to put in with the SEC or national Championship on the line? If you say Lock over Hurts I just don't know what else to say.
For what its worth a QB is a leader, architect, and above all director of a game and individual metrics (most passing yards) don't matter a lot to me personally. In the same vein that a DE has the most sacks on a team or in the conference it doesn't matter one bit if he loses containment regularly and opposing teams score on sweeps with impunity. He has a great individual metric but didn't do what the team required to put up points. I know there is a lot of variables in that including a sucky defense but the bottom line is lots of yards in the air no results. Winning games with your arm, legs, head, or heart to make the people around you better is what is required from a QB and Hurts wins over Lock IMHO.
