Maybe how Tua did against UGA is irrelevant? He was a national title winning QB and a top 5 draft pick.

Also, Mac Jones is good.

Tua was good. Mac is better. We are better team for having Mac. He’s not selfish. He takes what’s given. He doesn’t run with wide eyes when the first read isn’t there.

This is a fair take and healthy discussion. Don't hyperbolize things just to put a former player down who did great things for the program.

I didn’t put him down. He was a good quarterback. He’s just behind 3 others. Don’t put down Golding anymore either. No one. Bunch of freaking patsies.

Golding is our current DC.

What you do is say "Najee Harris is a great back and Damien Harris was overrated trash."

Hostility in your heart.

Damien Harris is light years better than Najee. Najee is good, but Damien was better.

It's way too early to say anything like that.

Mac is having a great season, but nothing Tua did was ever as shitty as scoring 14 points for the other team and single-handedly losing the game. But hey, he puts up lots of yards.

So sure, lets evaluate those first 4 starts. Especially the TD/Int ratio and W-L record.

He got broke again in that game? Durability of a geriatric.

I was using that as an example. Again, light years is strong here.

Nah I just have my opinions and you ladies get rattled to easy. Doesn’t bother me one bit if you agree or disagree just don’t get you panties twisted about it.

re: Negativity towards Tua
Sorry but saying "light years" better means you just like to be that guy. If you think one is better, fine - that is a fine discussion, I might even agree with you - they are certainly very comparable. But they are both very good.

If you feel like offering some opinion as to why you think one is head and shoulders above the other, go ahead and try.

Ha I don’t give a shite what you think and you won’t control anyone’s opinion on here because it isn’t yours. I’ll say what I say and if you don’t like it scroll past it. You aren’t running anything here.

re: Negativity towards Tua
So you don't want to provide support for your statement that Damien is light years better than Najee?

Damien did average more yards per carry and seems to have more breakaway speed in his last year. Personally I think they are pretty similar quality backs, Najee has been awesome in pass blocking thus far this year but that could be recency bias. I can't recall if Damien excelled in that part of the game or not.

Two 1000+ yard season with Bo Scar running behind him. Blocking ability on film was much better. As a sophomore Damien was able to do what Najee could not. Najee is good. He is not Mark, King Henry, or D Harris.

re: Negativity towards Tua
I don't put either Harris on the same level of Ingram or Henry personally, they are on a tier that I felt like neither Harris has reached.

We have a different style offense, so it is hard to compare - but I am just not sure if they can completely take over a game and wreck a defense like Ingram and Henry. Both are very good, just not quite at that next echelon IMO.

Henry was a freaking stud no doubt. A huge man when given a seam was deceptively quick. Durable beyond belief. Got STRONGER with more carries.

Ingram alone is what won us the SC game. He started taking direct snaps. He just knew when it had to be him and carry a team.

Mad respect to both.
