    Smooth, to the point that he kinda lulls you to sleep and then drops some absurd throw to Wilson or Olave. In total control right now and it feels like there's plenty more in the tank to work in as the season goes on.

    Didn't think I'd say it this soon, but he's already past Haskins and any other OSU QB I've seen.

    Justin Fields has two concerns this season

    1) weather
    2) covid

    The 2nd best defense in the B1G just held him to a completion percentage of 82.4

    He faces the best defense in the B1G in practice

    (going to go ahead and chalk up that 4th qtr to happy valley weirdness

    Didn't get hurt missed like 2 throws high all night. He was great. Could have pulled it 2 or 3 times on runs that got nowhere for 10-15 yards this week but I'm fine with him not taking the extra hits.

    There’s no doubt he’s the greatest Buckeye QB of all time and it’s really not close.

    The only thing missing on his resume to validate that is a National Championship and hopefully it will come this year.

    And a Heisman Trophy. Which he now has a realistic shot at.

    Absolute master class by Fields last night. His down field throws were on point, and how about all those passing plays on 4th-and-short? Those were executed so smoothly and should give opposing teams nothing but worry when they're studying film on Ohio State.

    Penn State held Justin to a passer rating of 199.74

    There will almost certainly be some weather games this year that keep his efficiency below 200 for a game, but the pedsters probably have the last defense that will do it. After a season of development, it may not even happen in the playoff.

    The really important question he should be answering is: Who took care of Uno while he was away at the game?

    JERRY JINX. Justin Fields almost had an Ohio State record all by his lonesome, but he got hit with the SID version of the announcer jinx.

    Seconds later, Fields missed Garrett Wilson in the corner of the end zone. It was almost poetic.

    It's fine though because there is not a doubt in my mind that he's going to have a chance to break this record again. In all honesty, based on how this season's started, I think it would be a disappointment if he didn't.

    Sure, a lot of people are going to put minimums on what a QB has to achieve to be considered the GOAT but that’s not fair because there are too many factors outside their control.

    If we are just talking talent alone, Fields is absolutely in a class of his own.

    RugbyBuck Our church has no bells.

    My QB calculus is, am I ever/always nervous as to whether a play will be successful? Over the years, there have been varying levels of anxiety with our guys, ranging from none (see Bauserman because I just didn't see them getting it done so anything we got was a gift ), to acute anxiety (Braxton if we had to throw), to latent/lurking anxiety (Smith/JTB). There's no anxiety with Fields on the opposite end of the spectrum from Bauserman. You just know that he'll get it done and that he knows it. He's got the right car and the keys and he knows how to drive it.
