Don't get me wrong I love Driskel as our QB, but with Brissett at QB obviously defenses will stop loading the box and play more honestly b/c they know Brissett is more likely to throw it downfield. If the line can't keep JSU out of our backfield I give up on them, but if they actually give him time I think Brissett will bring another dimension to this offense. What is your pros and cons on this?
I don't think the line can pass block anyone.
Driskel can throw as well as Brissett! We are not going to see anything different I don't believe besides no QB runs.
I got to agree with some of these posters. I think the issue is the O-Line being able to block well enough for anyone to pass. JD can pass, and we saw some flashes of it earlier in the season. I think injuries and fatigue have set in on the O-Line, and the results have been almost no time for routes to develop and reads and progressions. I know there has been some opportunities for JD to get the ball out and downfield, but your internal clock goes off much quicker when you're constantly running for your life more times than you have opportunities to sit in the pocket and pass. That being said, I do think JB moves better inside the pocket; there just has to be a pocket to move in. Also, maybe he won't have as short of an internal clock due to him not being put on his butt as much as JD has this year. Thoughts?
My exact thoughts.
Anybody expecting to see a totally different offense is setting themselves up for failure.
Lots of sacks
I hope not, but wouldn't be surprised!

scrape the sides up...
Nate is my boy. We're gonna (we better!) walk all over Jax St regardless of who plays QB. I'm saying. Same line, same back, same wideouts.
Yea i feel that.. cant hide that line..
It all depends on the O-Line IMO. If they can block like an actual D-1 school it will give time for the wideouts to run their and routes and keep the D honest. If not...yeah I see a lot of sacks happening. Hope for the best I guess.
I'm not sure why anyone would stop loading the box with Jacoby at QB. If I were the opposing DC I'd load the box and make Jacoby beat me with his arm. He still hasn't really proven much himself. I'd love to JB be really successful and have time to throw it around, but I'd be surprised. If we run it as much as we have with the guy who won the QB battle why would we run less with the guy who lost that battle even though it was close. Id expect to see more of the same in terms of our run/pass balance with maybe a little more wildcat.
What I have been described is not really different but a modified version of what we have seen so far. A different and more balanced attempt with emphasis on some different targets and areas of the field. The golden ticket is to be what has been done but noone expects. But dmb is right, it will boil down to execution. If the guys don't execute or they are not healthy it won't matter. Jacoby will look different in an entire gameplan than what has been seen so far as he has only been seen live in specific scheme situations. He has not had the chance to start, develop, modify, and finish a gameplan so he will appear different if given the chance. Jack state will serve as a practice round and to work out some kinks so lets see what happens and how everything falls into place. there is just as good of a chance that execution is bad as well as timing and BP reverts back to the early season way as a fall back and try again next week. Coming out early and executing could be the key for a qauntum leap for the O as they are so close to being very good if everyone could perform on each play. 10 of the 11 have no exscuse but they need to do it.
Gators need to come out and try to play efficient in preparation for FSU. Use it like a final scrimmage to work out some kinks. Show the coaches how focused and business-like they can play -- particularly, the OL, even against an uninspiring opponent. Need to build some confidence going into the following week.
i hate when our offense starts to look OK than booom penalty and there goes that series...happens every time
