When we actually seen with our own eyes that Pearman is better.

Before people say Cade didn’t play with the 1’s…. Neither did Pearman.

eh - i assume the coaches don’t want to lose and will be playing the best player in a football game

probably a fairly safe assumption

I'm not buying that Pearman is "better"....he's not. I think Cade is still a work in progress--he's still slow to make reads and it seems the college game is still a little fast for him.

But in terms of pure tangibles, Cade has more talent. Undeniable.

This will be really interesting to see if Riley can "fix" some of the lingering issues Cade has in his second full year.

Wesco dropped one from Cade and got bullied out of bounds on a fade where Cade tried to give him a shot. Did you actually watch the game?

Cade played well, IMO. His arm talent was better than Pearman’s for sure. Just two bad decisions, that could have been on the receiver. Zip, very quick release, nice deep ball. 55 yards on that deep ball, but about a 65 yard throw.

I find this argument funny when you hear Dabo saying live that Cade is checking into the correct plays pre snap. An aspect alot of people are not talking about is how radically different play calling was for Pearman, I'm more annoyed that Riley doesn't dial the same concepts up for Cade, how many slants and posts were called for Cade? Most of the plays they called for Klubnik were RPOs and difficult throws to the sideline and my least favorite all curls. Trent ran your traditional air raid style plays with recievers crossing his face and ran them well i want more of that for all of the QBs going forward.

It's almost like gee maybe each QB had particular things the coaches wanted to get film on in a scrimmage environment......

from 5 yards deep to the other 45. Beautiful pass to Streko on the swing pass for the TD. Some nice throws to Antonio Williams right where he needed it to be to get up field quickly. Nice scramble throw to Wesco for 20 yards, but he dropped it. No running game to speak of without Mafah and a complete oline. No Briningstool. No Tyler Brown, Troy Stellato, Cole Turner, Noble Johnson or TJ Moore.

Not great offensively by any stretch and not expected given what was missing and our first game opponent, our defensive talent and speed and their knowledge of our offense by the end of the Spring. I read the comments on the board after golf Saturday and Sunday and it sounded like the end of the world was near for Clemson's offense. Not what I saw in actually watching the game.

This is reality. And people are forgetting this was a scrimmage. Coaches are looking at specific things from specific players, play calling was different for all 3 QBs.

because we are not there at every practice and watching and grading every rep... if you trust the coaches then the best guy will be on the field... if not, good luck as you will endlessly complain...

Pearman was the best QB on Saturday, but that does not mean he's the best QB every other day... coaches make alot of money to make those evluations.

Pearman will move up and CV will either elevate his game or hit the portal.. which unfortunately is the new normal.

I am the eternal optimist. I am not a fan of too many from the portal. However,
what I saw Saturday indicates, Cade is what you see, adequate but does not excel.
I really believe this spring if we do not get a QB1 from the portal, we have to try
Pearman, and hope it works. Otherwise, I really worry about the upcoming season.
But being an optomist I think our defense may be elite. And may carry us to greatness.

Why do you pretend to know more than the coaches after watching one glorified scrimmage?

Pearman looked better than the others but almost every year we see a guy have a breakout spring game to never be heard from again. I have no idea if this is the case at QB or if this is actually something to consider. Guessing Dabo wants to win so the right decision will be made.

very true. they said the same about Vizzina, and he looked like dog #### that game. i mean some of their interviews and such they probably use to encourage their guys. I think pearman might be the go to guy eventually, but probably not the best idea to throw a true freshman at georgia if we dont have too.

There’s no need to overthink this situation. Cade has the highest ceiling with regard to QB talents. The problem is he’s still sitting down on the sofa while Pearman is standing up and jumping up to touch his ceiling. Somehow our OC/QB coach has to figure out how to get Cade up off that couch and start reaching for his ceiling.

It's ridiculous to suggest that Pearman is better based on the spring game.

Now, the hope is that Dabo is honestly going to evaluate the QBs this summer and fall with an open mind. If Pearman is truly our best QB, or has a chance to be, then Dabo should play him in real games and see how he does.

This isus as typical Clemson fans. The grass is always greener on the sidelines. Pearman made a few good plays at a practice and suddenly he is the best QB we have? The year before last everyone was saying the same about Cade because he came in an made a couple of plays that were better than DJ's. Cade actually starts and we find out it is the offense in general that is the problem and not just the QB. We won't really know until August..probably not until the week before the Georgia game if Pearman is better or not. Based on recent history I think I'll stick with the coach's judgement as to who is best.
