    Bill loves players with NFL legacy. Probably not necessary to lobby

    One thing that baffled me was Clemson dropped 8 on some plays. Georgia employee that strategy and abandoned that quickly. It just doesn’t work.

    For all the praise Lawrence has gotten (and it mainly being appropriate, he certainly is talented), he seemed to be maybe not the weakest link.... But certainly a huge reason they lost. His accuracy was abysmal.

    So many times he had a guy who got enough separation, for decent chunks, and he ended up sailing the ball over their head. Granted - the pocket wasn't always clean, and there was decent pressure. But he lacked that next-level poise that the greats have, where you stand in the face of a noisey pocket, have a firm plant in your stance, and deliver a laser.

    He's shown he can be that good, though. Just unfortunate he couldn't get it together that game. He was rattled or something. I think some more offense would've been a great defense to LSU, they were neck and neck up until the 4th.

    Living in SC, I have watched many a Clemson game. For the most part, he is a single read guy and is throwing to a wide open man. Last night, he was asked to make tight throws and he did a poor job of it. There are many reports that he is also REALY dumb.

    I would not be surprised if they trade the pick. IMO Burrow is not a sure thing. He doesn't throw the ball with anticipation and has some bad habits that will hurt him at the next level. He needs to get more cerebral in his approach to the game to be worthy of the hype. Many college QBs fail to make that transition.

    If I were the Bengals and some team offered me multiple high picks and a good player, or something along those lines, I would probably move #1 overall and take my chances.

    It will be nice to see Pittsburgh and Baltimore having to deal with him twice a season.

    I kind of see the "really dumb" take, but I had chalked it up to a boring personality. But these are definitely interesting points, I didn't know that he was that kind of QB.

    He just didn't have a good game, that's all. He definitely got rattled, and was borderline choking. It pretty much was the first time he was completely outperformed and thoroughly schooled by a superior QB.

    This is absolute bull.

    I challenge you to name one.

    You don't becoming the starting QB as a freshman if you're dumb. Also you don't run up tempo, no huddle offense if you're dumb. And certainly not a spread offense.

    There's also Dabo- do you really think he would tolerate a dumb QB?

    These are from the many kids we know that go to Clemson. His term paper on his hair is legendary and a great example of the modern student-athlete.

    To me, it looked like he was too focused on the game within the game (him vs Burrow) and was pressing a lot more than he usually does. You didn’t see any of the hallmark stuff that Clemson does on offense (back shoulder throws on comebacks, for example). It looked like he was trying too hard to make the big play and lost focus on taking the easy completion.

    Curious where you see the dumb thing.
    I haven't heard anything implying he's dumb. Not doubting. I don't know anyone at Clemson but talked to someone who played hs with him and he didn't mention that. Didn't really tell me anything good tbh but figured he would have mentioned that. Did rave abt his on the field smarts though.
