I liked what I read about Nassib leading up to the senior bowl, but the reports from practice along with his poor INT in the game, are real concerning. Specifically that his arm strength is very overrated, which is a huge issue IMO as his ability to stretch the field with his arm allowed for some lack of talent in other areas.
The thing that is most surprising reading these posts, is the above comment about nassib being "most ready to contribute now". I honestly think it is getting to an absurd level how underrated matt barkley is right now.
The guy is a 4 year starter, with impeccable off field and football character. He understands offense, he hangs in the pocket while keeping his eyes downfield, changes plays/protections at the line, and is accurate. Plus, he got his ass beat all season in 2012 and kept fighting even as the team struggled.
His arm strength is far from elite, but outside of that, what really is the problem here??? Is the USC QB stigma this bad? Because it seems to me that barkley isnt a "typical USC QB".
If for some reason he is available in the 2nd I think we have to take him, even if we have already acquired flynn or some other veteran.
