Default Ken Suigera: TW not a difference-making type of quarterback"

http://hamptonroads.com/2012/05/ask-...r-georgia-tech

AB: Quarterback Tevin Washington handled Paul Johnson’s spread option offense well in his first year as a starter. How do you think he’ll fare in Year 2, especially now that top receiving targets Stephen Hill and Tyler Melton are gone?

KS:

"I think he’ll be better, but losing a playmaker like Hill and a hustler like Melton are notable losses, particularly in light of the fact that no receiver on the roster has a single catch. Washington may be the hardest worker on the team and is an unquestioned leader. However, the big question is, as noted by his performance last year, how he can do against tougher competition.

"Washington started out last season hot, throwing 10 touchdowns against one interception in his first five games, part of Georgia Tech’s 6-0 start against the likes of Western Carolina, Kansas and Middle Tennessee State. However, he didn’t throw a single touchdown pass in the Yellow Jackets’ last seven regular-season games. Not surprisingly, they followed up the 6-0 start with a 2-5 finish, including defeats to Virginia Tech, Virginia, Georgia and the Sun Bowl loss to Utah.

"Washington has shown he’s capable, having led key drives and knocking off then-undefeated Clemson. He’ll be better, but I’m not convinced he’s a difference-making type of quarterback."

Can't say I disagree!

That is exactly how I describe him, and how I have seen many others describe him. He can play well, gain a lot of yardage when the option is working, and he won't lose any games for us, but he's also not going to singlehandedly win a game us. He's not stealing back any fumbles.

Can't say I haven't heard that a million times already in this forum alone. Nothing new.

As much as I hate to admit it, that is a dead-on analysis. Tevin has been excellent at managing games that are in control early or where we have an athletic advantage. He struggles in the tighter contests. Finishing 2-5 in last 7 games without a single TD pass is quite telling actually. He still has things he needs to do better. I guess that is why they get 5 years to play 4 huh.

Is this a shock? This is common knowledge.

Every D1 QB should throw 10 touchdowns on the likes of Mid Tenn St, Western Carolina, and Kansas.

It is what you do against VA Tech, Clemson, UGA that define you as a playmaker. Tech beat Clemson, but it wasn't solely due to TW. He played a good game and had some runs, but if you remember the first two possessions were awful and Tech finally caught a break when Clemson fumbled the ball on their own side of the field.

TW is a decent QB, but seems to wilt (especially passing the ball) against strong competition. Tech hasn't had a very good QB since Goose. Nesbitt was a warrior, and could make a play, but overall I wouldn't even call him a very good QB and I loved Nesbitt.
