The difference is that while Taisun isn't great, DJ was the second worst QB in the entire country last year and the worst Clemson QB in history compared to the other QBs of the year. Lets Compare that to Jeff Sims:
he’ll be wishing he had a “yellow jersey” (no contact jersey) on come Sept 5th . . . It’ll be the first time he’s ever been hit by a Tiger . . . he’ll have a new appreciation for our Defense before the game is over.
Poor guy is going to regret that decision come 05 Sep. I wish him nothing but the best, but not a good look going to their first opponent. But I guess he wants to show the world he's a better QB than DJU, so he will have his chance.
Regardless where he will end up on the depth chart, I have a feeling multiple QBs will be playing on that day in ATL. Breese hasn't even practiced in the spring since he's been here. Dabo doesn't even play our 1st team DL vs the 1st team OL b/c it isn't fair. Murphy, Bresee, Davis, & Henry/Thomas is insance and I think will have a better year than the Power Rangers. Tough to top Dex and CW, but I think Bresee and Davis just might.
Idk if he'll be opening day starter but this could be a future positioning play.
They have Sims still but he hasn't improved much since Freshman year when he made some noise.
TP7 may actually be a better passer than Sims so it'll be interesting if TP7 rolls in and takes the job but my guess offhand is he's probably setting himself up to try and challenge for the job next year -- Best of luck!
TP may not have been better than DJ but he was certainly his equal and should have received more time on the field IF he was healthy enough to play. Clemson just DID NOT have a quarterback last season capable of playing and winning big games. I honestly did not see a great improvement in the spring game but it isn’t fair to judge any player in games played with the “relaxed” rules of spring games. Ten wins last year says a LOT about the Tiger coaching staff and the guys who never quit on us!.
I will still follow the career of TP. He may get the last laugh.
