Jim Harbaugh gets biblical when he explains his two-quarterback approach to Michigan.
When it comes to picking a starting quarterback for his Michigan Wolverines, Jim Harbaugh lauds both Cade McNamara and JJ McCarthy for his biblical two-quarterback approach.
McNamara was the Wolverines’ starter last season. He helped Michigan win the Big Ten for the first time in ages and made his first-ever trip to the college football playoffs. McCarthy is a former five-star player just waiting for his opportunity to start games for the Wolverines. Meanwhile, Harbaugh references Solomon about what he’s going to do now…
“It’s based on the Bible. Solomon. He was known to be a pretty wise guy,” Harbaugh said on the podium Monday about his decision to have two quarterbacks in the starting XI.
Let’s just hope McNamara and McCarthy didn’t sign their NLIs to be halved in the Big House…
Jim Harbaugh references the Bible as he continues with his 2-quarterback approach
While playing multiple quarterbacks in the college game has worked before, there’s a reason it’s always a recipe for disaster NFL Sundays. When you say you have two starting quarterbacks, it really means you don’t have any. There are far worse quarterback rooms than the one in Ann Arbor, but we see how it could have been if Justin Fields had stayed in Georgia.
For those who don’t remember, Fields couldn’t beat Jake Fromm during his freshman year on campus in 2018. A coordinator change helped pave the way for his move to Ohio State to become one of the most successful quarterbacks in school history. Had he stayed in Athens, Fields might have been able to beat junior Jake Fromm as a sophomore. We’ll never know.
As we look forward to the 2022 season, we’ve achieved a similar scenario in Ann Arbor. Like Fromm before him, McNamara helped guide his alma mater into the college football playoffs as a starter. When it comes to McCarthy, we can all see his talent, much like we saw in Fields’ lone year at UGA. Thankfully, Michigan will sort things out.
Appointing McNamara as team captain means everyone has Harbaugh’s trust in him, as he should. But will he really be the guy to beat Ohio State in the Thanksgiving weekend horseshoe? Not to say McCarthy will too, but his ceiling as a college passer is infinitely higher than McNamara’s. Meanwhile, Michigan will have fun playing its pathetic non-conference.
Look for Harbaugh to keep it interesting gigantic Games against Colorado State, Hawaii and UConn…
