Maybe. But its not like both were unknown, not highly recruited QBs that needed tons of development. I like Cut but I dont think he is this development guru.
Eli was redshirted because he needed development and Cut is who Peyton trusted when he needed to relearn how to throw the ball after fusion surgery...sounds like development. 🤔

Realistically if y'all had to choose to start a foundation who are you taking based off of HS film right now? Haynes King or Harrison Bailey?
Not off film because I’m no scout and both film looks good. But I roll with Bailey just because of his commitment to us thus far, his embracing his role as torch bearer etc.

Honestly don’t think you could go wrong with either.

Wait people are actually questioning Cut and saying he's only perceived like he is because of the Mannings?

Did you see what he did with Ainge at Tennessee? Have you seen what he's done with Duke's QBs in general, not just Daniel Jones?
Yeah I can get on board for some hot takes, but "Cut isn't that great" ain't it.

I guess I’d take Bailey because he is already committed, hasn’t wavered, and has put in work with fellow seniors to try and win them over to Tennessee, be it successful, or not.

If neither were committed, and you asked me, it would be a tough choice. Bailey has the prototypical size and a cannon for an arm, while I think it is fair to question King’s arm strength just a bit. It may be stronger than I am giving him credit for, but I don’t see many instances of him throwing a frozen rope 25-30 yards like I do Bailey. However, King is a coach’s son, definitely has the better wheels and mobility in and out of the pocket, and is crazy accurate despite the lack of elite arm strength. Bailey is accurate, as well.

It’s a tough choice, but a good situation to be in. I guess, gun to my head, I’d take Bailey, but not entirely confident that is the right answer.

This is a straw man argument. I didn't see anybody claiming that Cut was not a good coach of QBs, only saying that he might not be coaching all that much longer due to health, and that campus not the best fit for us country boys.
Cut's great. He's also not our coach. I wish him nothing but the height of success with recruits we aren't recruiting, and wish him only pleasant days when he retires to Boca.
