Here’s another Clay Helton quote from yesterday.
“My job on game days will be managing game situations,” Helton said.
Personally, I want Helton doing as little managing as possible on game day.
He won’t call plays, which is good. But what does he need to manage? He should just keep an eye on John Baxter because special teams keeps having problems getting 11 men on the field.
I also don’t want Helton managing who plays otherwise it will be another season where JT Daniels starts no matter what.
It’s better if Helton emulates a mannequin. He can do as little as possible that way. It won’t fix the defense because Clancy Pendergast refuses to make adjustments but it might help the offense if he lets Graham Harrell decide who starts at quarterback and everywhere else.
Helton can stick to making masterful comments like this one last season: “I can’t wait for people to see this team come November.”
