Monday Whispers: Can Player Power Impact QB Derby?
I asked one of USC’s starting wide receivers who the players want to start at quarterback?
“About 90 percent want (Jack) Sears,” the wide receiver said. “It’s not really close.”
I’ve heard from other players that Sears is the preferred choice but here is what really surprised me from talking to the starting receiver.
“Everyone assumes Amon-Ra (St. Brown) wants JT (Daniels) because JT always throws to him,” the wide receiver said. “But when we talk about it, he says, `He’s not my guy.’ “
If Daniels doesn’t even have his Mater Dei teammate’s endorsement, maybe Clay Helton should think twice about his preference to start Daniels. But I doubt he will.
