“It is an interesting race because each guy brings a different dynamic to to the table. We need to figure out which dynamic fits our team best,” he said in an interview with 680 the Fan Tuesday morning. “Each one of them are so different. I have never been around a situation where they are so different,” Smart said in an interview with 680 the Fan earlier on Tuesday.”
By Tuesday night Smart said he and his offensive staff were trying to figure out how many snaps each signal caller will get, and which one might play on two different teams.
“We are trying to decide about it,” he said. “We might have someone play for both teams. We want the reps to be about even. Its really not about who wins or loses, but about how they play for their respective units. If there are 100 snaps we want it to come out relatively even.”
Then Smart expressed his concern that none of the quarterbacks had separated themselves from the pack.
“I really don’t think there has been a lot of separation,” he said. “It is frustrating because you want to have a guy take a leadership role and take the bull by the horns. It seems like every time a guy steps forward he makes a poor decision and comes back. There have been a couple of times where I thought Greyson was going to stick his head and shoulders above the pack, and maybe he makes a poor decision. And then Brice makes a play, and then Jacob makes a throw - it has really been a seesaw battle.”
“I really hope someone steps up,” Smart said.
