Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is . . .

Who do you want starting at quarterback for the rest of the season?

There are valid points for each.

Barry Brunetti is a younger player who would therefore have more time to progress. Coaches say he doesn't make a lot of poor decisions, and he could get it to the pass catching backs we currently have on the team. His downside appears to be that he is afraid to throw downfield, is short, and doesn't have good accuracy outside of fifteen to twenty yards.

Randall Mackey is a junior who has won consistently everywhere he's been. He is a capable runner but is known to make poor decisions with the football.

Zack Stoudt is the best pure passer and has displayed good accuracy (outside of deep passes). Unfortunately, he cannot run away from pressure and moves out of the pocket inexplicably making it easier for pass rushers to get to him.
