    Whaddaya got?

    Big QB Battle for me. I've got 2 RS FR QB's of the future, pretty torn with who to go with. Both are 68 OVR tho but thats all I got.

    Teddy Wilkerson 85 SPD 77 BTK 76 ELU 80 THP 70 THA
    Lester Lee 76 SPD 61 BTK 61 ELU 80 THP 77 THA

    Wilkerson was a former 4* ATH turned QB. I'm going to try both obviously and see how the 7 accuracy point difference plays out, but what I gain with speed and running ability with Wilkerson I lose in the accuracy dept. Tough long term decision here.

    I've got a feeling when it's all said and done Lee will be the guy but I have to try Wilkerson first.

    I always choose accuracy as scrambling QB's aren't my thing.

    I say choose Wilkerson...

    I still cant decide on my QB battle. With my offense I'm projecting my QB to have around 15-25 carries per game and maybe 8-15 throws... so Mack's break tackle is really appealing as he couldve been a 77 overall running back if i wouldve moved him there. They both have the same shitty throwing accuracy.

    QB Bobby Cooper - 77 overall, 84 speed, 85 accel, 80 BTK, 87 THP

    and

    QB Kevin Mack - 72 overall, 81 speed, 79 accel, 86 btk, 77 THP

    Yea I think coopers the no brainer there. More speed more accel and power. If their accuracies are the same I think you gotta go coop.

    I don't really consider it a battle as I know the starter, but I'll let yall have a look at my starting RB spot...

    Senior John Newby: 82 OVR 91 spd, 84 agi, 91 acc, 72 btk

    Junior Cornelius Sparks: 84 OVR 85 spd, 82 agi, 84 acc, 87 btk

    Sophomore Eric Archer: 80 OVR 87 spd, 84 agi, 83 acc, 83 btk

    You gotta go with Sparks. Look at that break tackle rating!

    I can't tell if you're being serious...He really the one you like best? They're all 3 pretty close, but Newby has been my starter since he was a freshman... And he was rated a 67 then...He started ahead of 3 guys rated higher than him cuz he ran the best. Tough to go against him...Last year he missed almost the whole season and Archer carried the ball for over 1,000 yards...

    I agree with this...even if he isnt being serious. Sparks looks like a beast but I prefer big lumbering backs over burners.

    Hammer I would go with Lee. Redd I would go with Cooper.

    I have a QB batter also.

    Turner (RS) Senior 77 OVR 66 SPD 68 ACC 85 AWR 70 THP 85 THA
    Parks Junior 71 OVR 86 SPD 78 ACC 63 AWR 75 THP 79 THA
    Small Junior 69 OVR 66 SPD 67 ACC 58 AWR 82 THP 79 THA

    So Small was probably the best one for me last year. But I would love to redshirt him or Parks this year. One question I have is; does awareness matter? Because based on their arms I like Small. Parks could add another dimension. But Turners overall and awarenss is so much better then both.

    AWR doesnt matter unless the game is simmed or something. It does greatly effect their OVR tho. Hmm... I don't know what to tell you on that one Galt...

    That was before I saw Sparks...besides... just because sparks starts doesnt mean Newby cant get the other half of the carries as well.

    I'm just going off the ONE single time I played you.. but you seemed to run with your QB a little more than anyone else I've played so for you I'd suggest Parks. Turner looks like Chad Pennington JR.. great accuracy but no arm.

    One thing I do know is I'm ready for the advance. I kind of hope I have a wk 1 game.

    I think awareness matters for everything but the player you are controlling at that exact moment. It probably matters the least for QB's.

    Ya that was what I was thinking that about awareness too. However, I think I am going to RS Parks and Small. And to start, go with Turner, but I could see myself removing Smalls Redshirt (for the second straight season) and going with him if Turner's arm is just too weak for me... Or I may just go with Small to begin with. We won't know till kickoff...

    If you remember the Coleman-Butler QB comp at USU last season, I have decided to start the season with Butler at QB this year. Im going to a pro offense and the accuracy is too big of a factor now.

    Accuracy is about the only thing I look for in a QB.

    After a quick late night practice session it looks like LL (Lester Lee) will most likley be getting the nod. Wilkersons legs just can't make up for his lack of accuracy... I'm sure both will get snaps in week one.

    sorry I'm late...

    QB

    Nate Barbour JR(rs)
    78 ovr 82 thp 77 tha 74 spd 80 acc 66 agi 72 car 79 awr
    71 ovr 80 thp 78 tha 72 spd 74 acc 74 agi 72 car 62 awr
    Travis Marks FR 4*

    Marks has a similar arm as a freshman so I wouldn't mind rolling with him as I bet he'll progress, but 7 ovr points is hard to ignore. Barbour gets the nod for now.
