I am as over this offensive coaching staff as the next guy but Mertz just hasn’t been good either. So many missed throws.

Story of everyone of our QBs. Do we not remember making fun of Hornibrook for missing throws deep, then doing it to Coan and now Mertz? It seems like it's a systemic issue and not just any current QB issue.

If I'm a QB recruit, I don't even give Wisconsin the time of day. It's insane how terrible the position's been since Russell Wilson. It was arguably better BEFORE his season here. That's flat out absurd to me.

Those were untalented QBs, this is a mental issue for Mertz. He has the ability. Sadly you can't coach fear out of a player.

I've got to think some of the playcalling is for lack of confidence in the QB. When he is missing wide open WRs it certainly can't make you think he is going to turn it around. ND can sell out on the run at this point, Mertz isn't going to beat them. And I think that takes out some of the plays in your playbook knowing your QB probably won't make the right read. A lot of pressure on a 20 tear old? Yep. But he was a 5 star recruit, was handed the starting role, and has done squat outside of one game ten games ago.

Again, I also think Chryst is not a good offense playcaller to start with. Especially when his bread and butter of a dominant running have isn't there this year. But extra shame on him for the QB situation, in no way is Mertz better now than Coan is.

Well, unfortunately, it looks like our first highly regarded QB turned out to be Feleipe Franks and not Trevor Lawrence.

Also, PC getting roasted in Portuguese as well.
