Just caught wind of Lambert’s stats and it brought something to mind. The kid threw 2 INTs all year. If you’d have told me before the season that Lambert is our starter all but 1 game and he throws 2 picks, I’d have said we were in Glendale.
Over the last 2 seasons, we have thrown 14 interceptions. Six of those were thrown by Hutson Mason and Greyson Lambert, who started a total of 25 games in that span, playing at least the majority of 24 of them.
Faton Bauta and Brice Ramsey threw EIGHT of those 14 picks, with Faton starting one game and Brice starting none, playing about 2/3 of one game.
It’s a remarkable stat. It’s almost hard to believe. I’m excited about the future. I’m not glad we tanked this season in the most weirdly emotional way. I’m not glad I spent a grand to go see us get rocked by Florida. I’m not glad to see a good man in whom I believed get fired. I am glad for new beginnings and the excitement around the program now. But, one day, I want an answer for why in the world we started Faton Bauta in Jacksonville. It’s just not hard to imagine us winning a tight game with Greyson playing.
FWIW, the kicker of all those stats is that it is incredibly clear that Hutson and Greyson were our best options the last two years, and that’s why we were so incredibly uninspiring in many ways. Chubb and Gurley were what was inspiring in 2014, and Sony and Isaiah in 2015. We had no sort of inspiration in the passing game, as our most memorable pass plays of each season were thrown by a running back and a wide receiver.
