Jack Sears vs. ASU (broken down by Max Browne) AnnenbergGrad Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,031 Likes Received: 1,186 Aug 24, 2019 #1 Since we're talking the QB 4 deep and how Sears ended up at the bottom of it, I thought this would be good to repost. I always love Browne's informed take on things. Great future as a broadcaster. As for Sears, I'll always say that USC could be letting go of a gamer. There's a real risk that they are, and we'll see if Jack wins games for someone else if he chooses to transfer. Staff has said over and over that all four QBs could start elsewhere, so I don't think this is a situation where Jack is being intentionally humiliated. I think it's more a situation where he's being dealt with honestly and in a way that allows him to move on as seamlessly as possible for all involved. However, in this one game where he did play well, there were some big time limitations placed on the offense that made it very difficult to win. In this new system, the whole field is used, not half of it. And Jack just wasn't consistent enough in his reads on HoJo to move up on the depth chart. In fact, he's always been below second string, and that's essentially where he stayed. As for his "mobility" he ran for 10 yards on one attempt in this game, but also fumbled away a zone read pitch when staff tried to utilize him that way. (Not in the Browne clip, but I was there.) He also couldn't turn the edge for a first down we badly needed for a chance to win the game. Last edited: Aug 24, 2019 SC200SC, TrojanFireHorse12, AtownSC and 4 others like this.
