Focus will be on Mavericks' QBs this spring

(Continued)

So the quarterback doesn’t need to be Wolf-like. But he does need to hang on to the ball and be efficient on third down. Last season, teams would try to stop Wolf first, the rest of the offense second. This season, at least early, the opposing defense is probably going to force the quarterback to make plays.

Brozovich has followed a similar career path to Wolf, who played sparingly all over the field as a freshman and sophomore before grabbing the quarterback spot as a junior. Brozovich, who isn’t as big or athletic as Wolf, will get the first shot, and he’s done OK with limited opportunities.

If he can make a similar jump in production that Wolf made as a junior, the position will be set for the next two seasons. If not, one of the youngsters will get a shot.

Ideally, coach Aaron Keen would love to have this position solidified by April 27, the day after the annual spring game. It would make things a lot easier in the fall, when they need to worry as much about opponents as themselves.
