Leader Of The Pack

I hear a lot of talk about who should be the starting quarterback at The Ohio State University. I get it we all saw that J.T. Barrett took over the offense and became a Heisman Trophy candidate. We also all saw when he broke his ankle verses the University of Michigan and Cardale Jones came in and the rest is history. But in this whole situation we forgot about the best quarterback at Ohio State, Braxton Miller. There is a reason that he was the starting quarterback, but I believe with all the talent that Ohio State has we have forgot what he is capable of.

Two time Big Ten player of the year, a Heisman front runner until his shoulder injury is why he is one of the best. Now by know means am I trying to throw shade on J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones. These two quarterbacks could go to any University in the country and getting the starting job. They both have developed a relationship and a chemistry with the offense that is undeniable. With J.T. running the offense his feet are a threat. Cardale has a cannon that can put the ball down theĀ  field. Urban Myer and his coaching staff have found a way to play to the strength of each athlete. That is why Braxton Miller is the best quarterback at Ohio State.

The talent that Braxton had to play with is not the same that J.T. and Cardale had to work with. Braxton was dealing with a much younger inexperienced team that was just getting their feet wet. What he did with the talent around him J.T. or Cardale could not have done. The knowledge of the offense and the play making ability is why Braxton Miller is the best quarterback at Ohio State.

Just because Braxton should be the starting quaterback does not mean he should be the only quarterback. I think Urban Myer should use his quarterback situation like baseballĀ  does. When Urban Myer was at the University of Florida he had his two quarterbacks that ran his offense. With Tim Tebow and Chris Leach he was able to win a National Championship. He needs multiple signal callers just in case someone gets hurt, like this season. Like I tell all sports fans, Ohio State has a problem that every team in the country would love to have. Can you say REPEAT?
