    There's almost no scenario where all 3 backups are here in 2018. Frankly urban has been lucky that he hasn't already made it clear who is the loser of the competition.

    If Burrow transfers I'll be seriously unhappy. He's the best QB on the roster other than JT and I don't care about someone's arm strength. It takes a lot more than that to run the OSU offense.

    The one I most want to see stay is Martell. He is electric.

    Burrow physically does everything well enough in passing and running but doesn't have the strongest arm and doesn't run as high end as a true speed guy at QB.

    However, Joe makes instant great decisions and that is his greatest calling card is his smarts.

    Not sure I agree with that statement.

    I've personally repeated this ad nauseum, but Burrows - not Haskins - won the QB long ball competition. Plus, as we've seen in his (admittedly limited) snaps, he throws a beautiful long ball.

    Burrows might not be the second coming of Jamarco Russell, but he has a more than capable arm.

    in my non expert opinion Burrow is/could be a better passing/throwing QB than JT with the same mobility. Now can he LEAD like JT (if given the chance) that is the $$$ question.....

    i just feel he is better suited than Haskins for what Urbz wants to do

    Running QB’s is Urban’s Blanky..if Haskins is to start he needs to improve his zone read game.

    You can't improve his speed. If you think defenses dared JT to keep it so the backs never get the rock, just wait.

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun

    This

    We have seen the QB's with the extreme skill sets (Miller, Jones) and we have seen JT Barrett be no worse than "above average" in any skill category.

    My gut tells me Haskins ends up giving way to Martel because from what limited playing time I have seen his lack of running ability (both zone read and actual running) is alarming.

    The other part of me thinks Wilson/day can design the offense around a one dimensional passing QB if need be so we shall see
