VY redshirted, JC didn't...

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.
