A lot of us have criticized Chiles passing ability (or lack there of) as a true freshman. VY had a whole year to get into the system, Chiles didn't. How much does a redshirt year help as far as quarterbacking I wonder. Also, did Chiles have a strong arm in HS and just hasn't shown it, or is he too raw for anyone to know yet?
Also, we talk a lot about how bad a passer Chiles is, but we tend to forget how mediocre the passing game was as a whole (receivers, O-line, playcalling) in 2007. Would VY have torn it up like he did when he debuted had he been given a shaky O-line, and decent but not explosive receivers?
VY had Benson, Roy williams, Limas Sweed, a veteran O-line throughout his career. All Chiles has gotten to work with is Mcgee (good, but unproven), freshman and true freshman receivers, a lousy o-line and every other play called is a draw or handoff.
I guess what I'm asking for, aside from general comments is your current opinion regarding Chiles. Can he be good, great, dare I say Vince Young-esque? okay, forget the last part, nobody will ever be VY.
