For Those With a Better Memory Than I
« on: August 14, 2006, 12:30:43 PM »
From all accounts, Robert Johnson has had very good practices thus far at QB in pre-season workouts.

Does anyone recall the reports of his practices last season?

HEADLINE: Johnson wins three-way race for Arkansas starting QB job
DATELINE: FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.
BODY:
Sophomore Robert Johnson, the only current Razorback to have taken a snap during the Matt Jones era, has been named Arkansas' new starting quarterback.
Arkansas coach Houston Nutt wrapped up Sunday's 90-minute practice by naming Johnson first-string, with redshirt freshman Alex Mortensen his backup. Those two were in competition with freshman Cole Barthel for the starting spot vacated by Jones, who is beginning his NFL career as a wide receiver with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
"We feel good about what (Johnson) is doing now, that he didn't do in the spring," Nutt said. "He's been accurate, but like we told him, 'We're giving you this because you earned it, but you still have to come to work every day. You've got some guys right there on your heels and they're going to work even harder.' We're excited about his progress, but I still think we can get better."
There was some concern about Johnson's confidence, even though he has been with the team for three years and is the only one of the three to have seen any action in an NCAA game. The coaching staff began by giving each quarterback an equal number of snaps at practice, then started increasing repetitions for the ones who performed better. In that time, Johnson's confidence shot up.
"There's a confidence level there, and he's better in the huddle," Nutt said. "You can see when there's pressure he's doing things better, getting rid of the ball and not holding it. He hasn't thrown an interception in the last couple days. We've been real pleased with that."
After a tune-up practice Sunday, the Razorbacks are back to two-a-days starting Monday.

I heard an "insider" report yesterday that the assistant coaches think he is an All-SEC practicer and an Non-SEC game dayer.


Which means of course, that he'll start for Houston Nutt's football squad.

We need to remember, in the scrimmage Saturday, Johnson went against the number 2 defense.  Mustain went against the number 1 defense.   Big difference.

Question for anyone that saw Johnson Saturday.  Did he look off of Monk the 3 times he threw it to him, or did he eye him the whole time?  The incompletions that were thrown for both qbs, were they bad throws, wr mistakes, ect?

RJ went against the 3rd team defense, and Mitch went against the 2nd.

That report Charlie posted sounds so familiar....can't quite figure it out...oh, here:

"Robert has been improving," Nutt said. "He had a good spring. I think Coach Wood understood why we started him last year. He is a very good practice player, he does some very good things and that is what he carried over tonight. He is a year older now and we all know he is better and more confident." 

Improving....better than in the spring.  Same as last year.   Come on, Mitch...put this guy on the bench, before we go 4-7 again.

Question:

Who did the 1st defense go against?

Nathan Emert and what I guess would be considered the scout/3rd team offense.

That is EXACTLY the reason that I think Johnson has no business on the field.

On the third completion to Monk, he actually threw into somewhat loose double coverage, and I swear if all 11 defenders would have been covering Monk he still would have thrown it to him.

The first two completions to Monk were the right read, but only because there wasn't anyone within 15 yards of him in the middle of the field. But he was going to Monk no matter what. He never looked him off.

Mustain, on the other hand, went through a progression on a least a couple of occasions that I noticed. AND, (some might argue this) on the TD pass to Reese threw about as good a ball as could be thrown. Reese was doubled by the time the safety closed and helped, but Mustain threw the ball in the only place that it was either going to be caught for a TD or fall incomplete or out of bounds.

On the "almost" pick that he threw, the defender could have been/should have been flagged for interference, but wasn't. And someone else can refresh my memory, but it seemed like Mitch checked out of a lot more plays than RoJo did, which was nice to see.

It's Rees not Reese but other than that you did a fine job. We need more quality out on the board, slackers will not be tolerated. Do we need to find a pink jersey for you?

I had forgotten about that, but he checked out of plays two or three times.
