Whatever Tajh does in his professional career [1]
Posted: Aug 30, 2014 5:38 PM
 

doesn't do anything to negate his incredible record breaking career at Clemson. In his three years as a starter our team turned around completely. Chad Morris certainly has a HUGE impact on that turnaround, but a QB doesn't account for 4000+ yards of total offense and 38+ total TD's in 3 consecutive seasons unless he has something going for him regardless of the offensive scheme.

Before Tajh, our Tigers had that peculiar streak over several years of only being ranked in odd years and unranked in even years. In other words, there was never any sustained success from year to year, not to mention the success we did have was typically a final ranking somewhere around 20.

In no way am I trying to say that TB alone was responsible for the transformation from our Tigers from a borderline top-25 team to a perennial top-10 threat on the rise. However, it would be both unfair to Boyd and shortsighted to perceive his performance as something that could have been recreated by any QB that Morris would plug in.

Overall I don't think there are many areas where Tajh deserves to be criticized as a college QB. Other than his seemingly psychological issues against SC and his performance against FSU last season, he typically did nearly everything we needed from him.

He seemed to have an issue with sometimes trying to do too much in a couple games. I think he put an incredible amount of pressure on himself and held himself personally responsible for the games where our offense didn't perform. That characteristic may have led to a few games where he was unable to find a rhythm, but that same trait probably also had a lot to do with his ability to have monster games from time to time.

Whenever Tajh got himself into a rhythm early, it's incredible the type of numbers he put up in some games.




That being said, I don't necessarily believe that someone is denigrating or diminishing Tajh's legacy by saying that they aren't surprised he didn't make it in New York. I'm just about as big of a fan of Tajh Boyd as there is, and I'm wearing my #10 jersey right now, but I had my own doubts about him making the team after the performance in his first preseason game.


No one knows what the future tolds for him as a professional QB whether that be getting claimed off of waivers, going to the CFL, or starting off on a practice squad, but I think that given a few years to develop behind a veteran, Tajh could possibly emerge as a mid-tier NFL starter one day.

I don't think predicting him to likely not be more than a 3rd string NFL QB for the next year or two means I'm taking away from what he did while at Clemson.

But maybe I'm wrong. Whatever the case, I wish him the absolute best in whatever he does in the rest of his life whether that's as a professional QB or some other career, and he will always be universally loved by all the Tiger faithful.


GO TIGERS!!
