IT is about time Jefferson should have been starting.

Jordan Jefferson should be giving a chance .Lee is the worst quarterback Ive seen in the last 20 years at L S U .And he seems to be regressing instead of progressing.

I agree, but it's too late. Why waste a year of Jefferson's eligibility on a blown season? I say you make Lee fight for his job next year by making him finish the season. His only shortcomings seem to be mental, such as his lack of ability not to stare down his receivers. They should not have to throw the ball against Troy or Arkansas to win those games. They can probably beat Ole Miss even with Lee giving away an instant 6.

6?... Try 14... even 21?

Congrats to Bama on a great game... but that win doesn't mean shit if they don't win out and win a National Chamionship. They are in control of their own destiny and I sure as hell hope they do it!

Anyway... Lee's first int was almost returned for a TD and was put in a few plays later. And those who say you can't blame Lee because the ball was tipped are just kidding themselves. He should not have thrown the ball in TRIPLE coverage to begin with. His Second was returned... That's 14 points directly because of his int's... without those LSU wins. Same thing with Georgia. 2 int's returned for TD's. 14 points, which is what they lost by. I don't know if it would have helped in the florida game, but the game would have at least been 14 points closer.

Now... I'm not trying to take away from the victories by any of the teams who beat LSU... But LSU (Namely Lee) has been it's own worst enemy. The Defense has not played to it's potential, but done fairly well for such a young group (only 4 returning starters!) The Offense has been rather productive (not counting the Turnovers) To be able to spot your aponent 14 points on turnovers in almost every game and still be there in the end.... YOUTH!!! That's the key word... YOUTH!!! All you guys, forget about LSU... ignore us... put us out of the polls and rule us out of any championship talk (SEC or NC)... go ahead... That's how we like it. We'll be back! We are rebuilding, and teaching these young guys how to do there job well. I say 3 losses with a team that returned 9 starters combined is doing pretty damn well.

Next Year. As for now... Bama! You better make the SEC Proud this year!!!

Why doesnt he(Jarrett Lee) just go away. He is a psyched out mess. I am surprised he has the courage to face his teammates after letting them down every single game. Get rid of him and the coach that can't see the problem of a worthless Q back. They should center the ball to the halfback and not have a Q back at all.

Let,s not forget that we already have a verbal commitment from the #1 Quarterback out of the state of Texas according to Rivals.com and leaks from LSU alum. Let Jefferson play and at least get experience thi year. Lee can be #4 on the depth chart next year.
