After last year, you could hear fans begging for another quarterback. With the signing of a junior college quarterback this year, that threw for over 3,000 yards, almost 30 touchdowns and had a completion percentage above 60, there were many ready to give him the job even before he arrived.
With spring practices 6 days in,
"Joe is much improved from a year ago and Zac, for a guy that's just come in, he's really starting to put the principles together."
Dailey, the incumbent should have been expected to be where he's at. Considering the fact that the junior has a year of starting for the team under his belt, that along with having the off-season to figure out where the mistakes happened has apparently given rise to some improvement in many areas.
"It's like a dust cloud at first, but when it starts to clear up for you, you start to execute."
The battle would appear to be a two-way one currently, but Norvell wasn't so quick to dismiss at least two other quarterbacks that have since spring practiced started, have done nothing but improve their stock on the team. "Joe Ganz did all of our scout teams snaps (last year) and he's really showed some poise," Norvell said. "And, Beau Davis stepped up today and did some really good things."
"So, I am really proud of the progress of all the guys. They are really competing, they are locking in, they are trying to do the things we ask and in the next week, it should clear itself up a little bit more."
