Notre Dame Football: Analyzing Tommy Rees' Strengths and Weaknesses

Adam KramerNational College Football Lead WriterJuly 24, 2012

Tommy Rees just plead guilty to two misdemeanors as his push to get back on the field continues. As Brian Kelly waits to see how the quarterback’s punishment should go, signs are pointing to the junior having at least a shot to get back on the field. For some Irish fans, that is a good thing; he helped lead the team to some key wins a season ago and played well in spots. For other fans, the prospect of Rees getting back on the field is troublesome; if he is playing, that means the darling of the spring, Everett Golson, is not.

Whether he wins the job outright or not, the big issues with Rees remain the same. As one of the three quarterbacks vying for the starting job with camp on the horizon, now is as good a time to look at what Rees brings to the table. The kid has some obvious strengths, but some big weaknesses too. What do you think Rees’ biggest pluses and minuses are entering 2012?
