Decisiveness could determine the Texas quarterback battle

·1 min read

Hudson Card and Quinn Ewers will battle for the starting quarterback position at Texas. And barring erratic play from either of the two, the more decisive quarterback should prevail.

Card possesses immense talent. The No. 2 dual-threat quarterback from the 2020 recruiting class has a good arm and solid speed. While the measurable traits are present, the Lake Travis product has yet to take hold of the starting position.

Ewers comes in with many strong tangible and intangible qualities, but lacks the game experience for us to definitively project how he will perform.

One of the quarterbacks will face the toughest second-game test imaginable.

Texas will play against an Alabama defense with Will Anderson and Dallas Turner terrorizing an already fragile pass protection. Steve Sarkisian will need the quarterback to make good decisions as quickly as possible.

The decisive quarterback in that scenario figures to win out.
