    JG doesn't have it. It's obvious.

    Let's take a look at some former Tennessee QBs:

    Casey Clausen was a frosted tip, Zima drinking douche. No one really liked him off the field, but on the field he played like a frosted tips, Zima drinking douche and was 14-1 on the road. He would will teams to win despite mediocre play calling and some not so great receiver play (especially 2002 and 2003). He's extremely underrated by the majority of the Vol fanbase.

    Brent Schaeffer was fun for a few games.

    Erik Ainge was mentally and physically fragile, but when he was on, he was pretty damn good. When he was off, it was terrible.

    Crompton didn't realize his limitations after shoulder surgery, but once he had a non dysfunctional offensive staff coaching him, he got drafted.

    Matt Simms was a robot and played the role of tackling dummy well while the freshmen oline gelled.

    Tyler Bray was the gunslinger that loved to talk shit. He never met a throw he wouldn't attempt to make.

    Worley wasn't that good, but he was also crammed into a read option style offense and was screwed hard for two years by Butch.

    Dobbs singlehandedly kept Butch employed.

    What good things can you say about JG? He's tough?

    He throws a good spiral.

    And Casey in his oversized clown shoes would never slide a yard short of a first down on 3rd down against anybody

    Clausen runs better than JG. Let that sink in.

    Unbelievable people saw him play and stuck with that.
    He runs like he thinks the grass is going to give way

    Casey would’ve hurled himself head first toward the marker.

    Clausen was an arrogant California kid who wouldve never been the player he was, without the arrogance, matched with his effort.
    I remember seeing him down at an Old city late night dance club dancing with his shirt off. He was a west coast gronk loving being the big dog.

    Clauses never met a 15-20 yard throw he didn’t like...on third and 2!

    By now, JG should have a feel for the game, but he has no instincts at all. It is really odd. I think he is a bright kid and a decent athlete. The really odd thing is that when you take a beating like he has historically, you are generally well respected by team mates. Doesn’t seem like he inspires any camaraderie among teammates. He’s like Tyler Bray without the arm strength/confidence.

    He is tough. He can sling the rock. He has ok mobility.

    Unfortunately, he has no touch. He’s usually a statue, very robotic. He can’t read a defense. He usually doesn’t lose the game, but he will never rally a team to victory.

    The play Saturday that sums up JG’s career for me was the 4th and 3 where he passes to Andrew Craig for a gain of 2, when he had Callaway open for a first down. Those plays don’t show up statistically, but that’s how you lose to Georgia State.

    3rd and 3, down 1 in 4th, good posituon on field, and he dumps to the flat, afraid to zip it to a wide ass open easy throw for a first down to extend the drive. I think GS scored the next drive.

    His mobility is terrible.

    Why in the hell do you have a tight end running routes behind the line, anyway?

    I think it has more to do with awareness than ability to move

    That’s a part of it. He isn’t elusive, agile, or fast, either.

    I think he has some speed, but he hesitates so much that you never actually see him run with purpose. I'm not saying that to be funny. Even when he "runs" he is still unsure holding back.

    Have a feeling if JG was in a big track event, he'd be late off the block and run a 5.5.
