Ohio QB Tyler Tettleton Is Grasping The Offense

Practice scrimmages are kind the NFL equivalent of pre-season games except NFL teams also have practice scrimmages. In pre-season games teams are playing against units that they will likely never see during the regular season while in practice scrimmages they are playing against units they will see in every game of the regular season - only they'll be wearing the same jersey.

Because of that, some may not put much stock into what comes out practice scrimmages. But for what it's worth, Jason Arkley of the Athens Messenger reports that Tyler Tettleton, who was named the starting quarterback for this season not too long ago, has looked good.

Tettleton hasn't made many mistakes. Good grasp of offense, tempo. Just has to show that when it counts. less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet Reply

 

Now, it'd be one thing of Tettleton was completing 50-yard bombs, in which case I would be sad for our defense, but since his success has come in the mental part of the game I think we can take something away from this. I'm sure some would expect Tettleton to struggle picking up the system after just being assured the starting job but he has been in the program for two seasons (going on three) and it looks like he didn't miss a beat when he red-shirted last season.

Arkley also reports that the battle for the back-up job is becoming interesting. Kyle Snyder seems to be the favorite but Derrius Vick is also a candidate. I don't want to wish bad luck upon Tettleton but I think we all remember what happened to the last Vick that was a third string quarterback on a team that's primary color was green(ish).
