A few days after A&M QB Jerrod Johnson had one of the best/worst games of his life in a loss against Okie State in Stillwater, Aggies coach Mike Sherman was asked if his QB's problems were as a result of the shoulder injury he suffered and had surgery on last spring.
"Early in the season, not having had spring ball, he was a little rusty at times just throwing," The Sherminator said today. "I think we constantly checked his shoulder. Both he and the doctors said it's fine. He rifled the ball (at OSU) a few times which warranted saying his shoulder is fine."
So if it's not the shoulder, how to explain JJ's sudden penchant for being Mr. Nice Guy with the ball? He had five turnovers against the Cowboys, including four INTs. It ruined a game where JJ threw for 409 yards and five TDs.
JJ has thrown eight INTs in his last two games. He threw eight INTs all of last season.
Sherman said some of the picks were not necessarily on JJ, but that this turnover streak is about choices.
"He's always been pretty good with (the ball)," Sherman said. "It's decision making."
Sherman said he will stick with JJ, that he gives his team the best chance to win.
The Obvious Statement of the Day - A&M has no chance this Saturday against No. 11 Arkansas is JJ continues with his giving ways.
