RETTIG TO EXHALE


No, we aren't trying with the blog posts titles. Thanks for asking.

We're into the second week of STG's incredible day-by-day preview leading up to kick-off on Labor Day weekend. It's early in the previews, but since he's going numerically, perhaps the most important piece of the puzzle is under the microscope today - Junior QB Chase Rettig:
Anyone who knows Boston College football and has two or more brain cells to rub together is aware that Rettig is pivotal to this team’s near-term future. Unless you think Josh Bordner will turn into an ACC quarterback tomorrow or that some other quarterback not on the two-deep will suddenly prove worthwhile, Rettig is realistically all we’ve got. His spring performance was troubling, but it must be our hope that he comes through these problems with a renewed energy and makes 2012 his best season yet.
As STG notes (and many other previews as well), Chase has had to deal with offensive coordinators as if it was the cursed Defense Against the Dark Arts position at Hogwarts. That's a lot of learning, unlearning and relearning. There is good news: the weapons he has at his disposal may finally be aligned under Doug Martin, the question is if he will adapt and grow into that over the summer.

There aren't many options when it comes to the field marshal offensive position on this depth chart, or really next year's either. Rettig *has* to step up for this team to come around.
