Anyone else think that Logan really struggles to read defenses and also what are your thoughts on Loeffler instilling a better sense of the QB position for LT?
Always seemed to me that Logan never made his own audibles at the LOS and often made God awful reads while running read-option (which accounted for about 80% of plays this past season ). For all the natural athletic ability Logan has, I am still concerned that due to his overall lack of QB experience, this will continue to be an issue. I really want LT to shine in this regard and I'm not sure if Loeffler's ever coached such a raw QB prospect in terms of in-game awareness and general quarterbacking knowledge. No way am I saying that Logan is a dunce at QB, but I think we can all agree his experience, or somewhat lack of puts him behind the curve of many of his peers in D1-A who have QBed literally their entire lives. Maybe someone can ease my worry! Thanks fellas/felettes.
With all due respect, is this a troll post? What are you talking about with Logan's lack of QB experience? He is absolutely not a raw QB prospect. Can he make better decisions with the football? Absolutely, but so too can every quarterback in the country. I suggest you do some research before posting something ridiculous like this.

Not at all. Quoting myself, "No way am I saying that Logan is a dunce at QB, but I think we can all agree his experience, or somewhat lack of puts him behind the curve of many of his peers in D1-A who have QBed literally their entire lives."
Now, in terms of that, would you not say he's just a "tad" raw?? He QBed a couple years in HS and that was it before he came to Tech. In his time at Tech, I'm honestly not sure if O'Cain really made him a better QB.
In no way is this a flame, so please don't take it like that. I do apologize if it came off that way
Apologize if I took that out of context. I don't believe Logan is lacking in experience (or raw) a tall. He was the starting qb his last two years in high school and has been in VT's system for 4 full years now. That's a lot of experience. If anything, I think some fine tuning of Logan's game will do wonders next year. Personally, I think he had to shoulder too much of the load last year and tried to make too many plays instead of letting things happen. He lost two of the best receivers in school history, 4 offensive linemen, and statistically, the best single season running back in team history. That's a lot to replace.
It's been dissected plenty of times on this board and on others, like Key Play, that Logan made the right read with the read option but someone missed their blocking assignment or some other mishap. I think being the QB, as the most visible offensive player, Logan took alot of unwarranted blame for the lack of success this past year. I think he's better than many give him credit for and his failure last year was from doing too much when others did too little.
Two years in High School is NOT much experience, hence why he needs to come back.
To the OP whose question was legit, I do think Loeffler will help LT bigtime.
Two years in high school plus 4 years in college constitutes a lot of experience to me. The OP said LT was inexperienced and raw. I don't think that's the case at all.
I do agree that Loeffler can and will help LT a lot.
Lt is inaccurate forget inexperienced or raw... can loefler fix that is the real question
Loeffler will help LT a lot. Having a line ,wr's and te's that carry out their assignments will help a lot more. Last year we kind of let off the gas a little but I believe these new coaches will have everyone going full bore this year. We have very good talent and I believe this team will be out to prove it. I'm pumped.
