Are You Confident in Robinson at QB?
Obviously, senior Chris Turner is the guy at quarterback this season. But how comfortable would you be if backup Jamarr Robinson had to play at all during the season?
Robinson’s development is one of the interesting subplots to camp. Coach Ralph Friedgen has occasionally praised Robinson, but he has also repeatedly said that Robinson has been consistently inconsistent.
In Thursday’s mock scrimmage, Robinson completed 16 of 28 passes for 250 yards. He threw three touchdown passes and one interception.
Friedgen said it may be important to get him a little action during the season at some point to see what he can do.
“He will scramble and make a play,” Friedgen said. “What he has to do right now, he has to make better decisions. He is like a lot of quarterbacks I have had. They never think anything negative is going to happen. All of the sudden they throw an interception in the red zone when they could have run it for a first down.
“So it’s a fine line. You don’t want to take their aggressiveness away, but they have to be smart about it. Don’t take points off the board. He took a sack in the red zone today.”
