You know you’re the definition of a “dual-threat quarterback” when not only are you completing passes, but you are making yourself a huge deep threat in the process.
Auburn’s Nick Marshall proved to be exactly that against Mississippi State on Saturday night. The Tigers’ signal-caller caught a pass tipped back to himself and then broke out for 37 yards right after. Not bad at all.
For those wondering, the young man is already looking better than Brett Favre. Favre’s first pass ever as a Green Bay Packer was also completed to himself. However, as you can see, the results weren’t nearly as favorable.
