    Again, 'great' - where does that come from? Is it that hard to read a post?

    In any case, when have all freshmen at WR and in the backfield, I'm not sure you can look at LT's line and say he 'struggled'. He made several quality throws today, and it wasn't only ECU players dropping easy balls from LT.

    But, it's not like he was the player of the game or anything.
    You don't have a clue....how many open WR's does he constantly over throw? He don't do a good job of "reading" in the read plays...IMO he just isn't a very good QB but I'm sure you disagree because he had his first decent game in over a year

    And player of the game yeah that's a great award given by 2 idiots doing the game on TV.....Chris Simms was one of them...boy he was a great QB himself

    Do you remember 2011? Was LT 'not a very good QB' in 2011? Really? Then we had 2012, a disaster by all accounts, and Stiney was fired as OC because he was terrible. Now we have a QB with a new OC with half a brain, so let's see what happens when you play all freshmen at WR and RB. Only the most critcal, myopic fan could ignore the big picture here.

    You titled this thread using aggressive and combatitive language and then act suprised when people react in kind. It's fascinating.

    LT was fine today, he wasn't great and he wasn't bad. He was what he pretty much always is.

    He was pretty bad today, even with the ridiculous awarding of the Player of the Game given by Fox Sports. That horrible screen pass should have been a pick 6 and that would have lost us the game. He's lucky his errors were not costly today, but they will be later on. This was not a good game by LT. His passes were all over the place.

    He's our all time leading passer in completions and attempts...apparently all VT QBs in history have "sucked"

    If LT is considered the best statistical QB we've ever had, the bar wasn't set all that high to begin with.

    1, the screen pass was poorly thrown, yes, but wouldn't have been a pick 6...the ECU player made a great adjustment just to get to it on the move. LT misread what the defender was doing, but IF he caught it, he would've fallen down...he dropped it because he was off balance

    2) after his first two overthrows, and one other I remember, he was only inaccurate due to hits and pressures

    He was EASILY the player if the game

    Manziel just threw an INT in the end zone hat cost aTm points, should they move him to RB and put in the backup QB??

    Half the reason he gets hit and pressured as muh as he does is because he holds onto the ball for way too long.
