11. Did Brian Kelly really want to coach at Florida and did Florida really turn him down?
Another undersized "athletic" quarterback hyped into the first round.
Oh I'm not saying he won't be drafted. He will. Because the woke NFL and sports media hype "athletic" quarterbacks because that's what they want all QBs to be. But look at all the Super Bowl winning QBs over the past 20 years. Almost all are not "athletic".
AR lacks the passing acumen to quarterback in the NFL. Physical attributes alone don’t cut it. Ask Feleipe.
Physical atrributes alone do not make a quarterback. AR lacks the passing acumen to play in the NFL.
Not all the potential. Physical attributes alone do not make a quarterback. Ask Feleipe.
AR, you were 9 for 27 (33% completion rate) because you're NOT ready for the NFL. Frankly I don't think you have the passing skills to ever be ready for the NFL. Ask Feleipe.
Yeah but the PI keeping the Gators' TD drive alive was BS.
Brian Kelly was the guy. Did Florida really turn him down?
I ask again: Did Brian Kelly reach out to Florida and Florida turned him down? At the time, this was reported by a Jacksonville reported who covered the Jaguars (read: Urban Meyer) and a Chicago website that covers Notre Dame.

I read two reports, one from a Jacksonville reporter who covers the Jaguars - Urban Meyer connection - and another from a Chicago station, both saying Brian Kelly wanted to go to Florida but Florida turned him down. Is that true?
Did Kelly really approach Florida and did Florida really reject him? If so, it's not looking too smart right now.
The Falcons have Feleipe Franks playing tight end for the same reason. "Athleticism" alone won't make you a quarterback.
No difference between taking a snap and running and taking a handoff and running.
He’s a bigger stronger version of OJ Simpson. Why are they trying to make him a passer?
Anthony Richardson's future is as a running back or receiver.
He showed he should be a running back or receiver.
I read reports from Jacksonville and Chicago saying Brian Kelly wanted the Florida job but UF was not interested. Really?
Actuually he has beend the same. 0 touchdown passes in all 3 games.
"he hasn’t looked anything like he did against Utah" Actually he has - 0 touchdown passes in all three games.
"Florida is breaking in a new quarterback — albeit one with first-round NFL talent." Oh, my. So many things wrong with that. First, calling AR "new" is misleading. This is his 3rd season with the Gators. He threw 66 career passes before this season. Compare Trask, who threw only 22 career passes before being thrown in the fire at Kentucky, down 3 touchdowns, and yet Trask was able to excel without skipping a beat. Second, AR may have first-round running back talent, tight end talent, and even linebacker talent, but throwing 0 TD passes in 3 games against weak to middling opposition is NOT first-round quarterback talent.
You need to define "smart". Not my word. Some quarterbacks struggle with the mental aspect of quarterback play. That's a fact. Look at Danny Wuerffel. He had zero athleticism but could run Spurrier's offense. Doug Johnson, on the other hand, was bigger, stronger, and had a bazooka for an arm, but made real dumb decisions on the field. One won a Heisman and one didn't.
AR15 - so far - is showing once again that all the media hype about "athleticism" - see Treon Harris, Feleipe Franks, and Emory Jones - doesn't mean squat if you don't have the mental capacity to play quarterback.
Agree. That’s another issue. Why are other schools able to start freshman QBs, and have them succeed, but at Florida it’s always “Oh, he’s inexperienced, he needs to develop"?

AR15 has not thrown a TD pass in 3 games against mediocre to bad opponents. That's stunning. By now Trask would have 10 TD passes. And don’t give me the bull about AR needing more time. Before this season, AR had 2 years with the team and threw 66 passes in games. Trask had 3 years with the team but threw only 22 passes in games before being thrown in the fire at Kentucky in 2019 and immediately excelling. You can have all the athleticism in the world – Treon Harris, Feleipe Franks, Emory Jones – but if you don’t have it upstairs, you’re not going to excel. The question is, does AR15 have it upstairs?
