There is no bright side unless you are in denial. Tanner is tossing too many picks. The first and last picks were his fault. That line isn't great, but it is better than the one he had at Tulane. If he is special like some of us thought he was, then he will find a way to not throw so many picks. He has already tied his amount of INT's in his second year here in just 3 games with Nebraska! That's horrific. I am still rooting for this kid, but he is about to ruin his career if he doesn't pick it up.

That first pick 6 was insane. Like the CB knew the play before it was called. Really hard to blame that on the QB the CB just gambled and jumped the route . . Nothing to lose in that part of the field.

The film study is that Lee stares down receivers for too long.

I have family that are huge Nebraska fans and I have watched all of their games under Lee. He stinks.

Yes. But on that particular play he took the snap turned and threw. Happened so fast he didn't even stare there. They scouted them well. He's running out of opportunities. They won't hesitate to pull him if this continues.

Lee was and is a turnover machine. I called him Pick Six Lee. It was easy to blame poor coaching and bad talent around him at Tulane, but it looks like the same old Pick Six Lee at Nebraska.

However, I believe that Lee is two or three years away from being ready to shine on a division I level. Instead of him wasting a year being a third string QB this season, (because he is not going to start over Powell or Montana), CJ needs to sit him out a year. From what I saw from his film and my own eyes, Lee has some good tools, but he needs to be redshirted. What I am loving about CJ is the fact that he is bringing in "all" solid QB's with raw talent and wheels. This is going to make instant QB battles every single season. I love it.

Lee is in summer school now and taking a full load, coming from Jesuit I don't see him being a 5 year student (he'll be done in less than 4 years). If he's good enough to play he's going to play. CJ doesn't believe in redshirting if a kid can contribute. We'll see what happens (Injuries and such).


It's kind of fun going back and reading some of these posts from 5 years ago.

As for Lee’s future, LaMothe said, “If you’re looking for a pocket quarterback, a pro-style quarterback, he’s got the tools. He’s got all of the tangibles and the intangibles. He has a strong arm, probably the strongest arm of any kid I’ve coached (in 17 years). He has a great pocket presence. He can throw the deep out. He can throw every pass.”

Not sure what the difference between qualified and unqualified is. It looks like it may be the total number of plays. Not sure. But in the qualified, he's #110 of 130. In the unqualified he's #130 of 173. Neither Brantley or Banks is listed in qualified, only in the unqualified list, but QBR is still calculated the same. By comparison to Tanner Lee, Brantley is #43 and Banks is #51, where Lee is #136.

That's even higher than the number of pages in this 5 year old thread :lol:

Fun Fact - Sader made the 1st post in the thread. Armageddon ensued after that.

The latest. Tanner Lee past beatdowns:Tulane
https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebra ... ogical-one
"He always had something,” offered Eric Price, Lee’s old offensive coordinator with the Green Wave. Then he chuckled morbidly. “We didn’t protect him well, to say the least.” "He has been through some things where something bad happened, everyone’s looking at him, and they’re blaming him, the media and the fans,” said Price, now an offensive analyst with the Jacksonville Jaguars. “He had a lot of pressure on him and he was playing hurt a lot of the time and he was beat up. I remember thinking, ‘I don’t think he’s gonna go,’ and he’s going. He didn’t say anything about it — he just showed up. And he’s awesome in that way. And that experience was very valuable to him, especially early in his career.”

Banks has a very strong arm. Making it a bit more accurate is a mission the coaches are taking on.

I'm sorry, but as much as I like Tanner, and hope he succeeds, I cannot believe someone that's watched him to date can make a comment that he "has a great pocket presence". He has a very live arm, shows leadership (bouncing back from bad plays, calming in the face of adversity, etc.) but I think his pocket presence is horrible. If it were better, he'd get the ball out before taking the sacks or hits that lead to bad throws, INT's, etc.

LMAO! It (the # of pages in this thread) would be at least doubled. I miss JJ. Yes, oftentimes his posts would stir the pot and/or piss me (and a whole lot of others!) off. But he also made some very good points.

Well, soon Lee will be able to confidently say that he got coaches fired at two different FBS programs. That's actually very difficult to do since the the 2nd coach would have to actually want the player after the player got the first coach fired.

He stared down receivers at Tulane and still does - you could see he was still doing that when throwing for all of those yards in nebraska's spring game.
Nevertheless, when he has time to throw he has had several good games and he'll have some good games at Nebraska.

And the funny thing is, I'm sure every HC he's played for, going back to HS, tried to teach him to look off the defenders. We're not smarter football wise than the coaches he's had for the last 7-8 years. He has to learn, and quickly, or he won't make an NFL practice squad. If he does FINALLY learn, he'll be A draft pick and make himself a nice chunk of change. His arm will take him places ONLY if his mind can lead him there. Right now the mental part of his game isn't even on the CFL level, no less NFL.

And as easy as it is to bash Tanner, it's also easy to root for him. Always seemed to be a good kid from a good family. I hope he figures it out, and quickly.
