Who else would it be, honestly? Bray will emerge this fall stronger and perhaps five pounds heavier. Though I am concerned about what he has learned from the playbook, I have no doubt in his delivery or arm strength.
But, he still looks a little unpolished with his touch. Critics at this point could argue that he throws much too hard and that is why the receivers drop so many of his passes, but at this point, the receivers should just remember to wear gloves and suck it up.
Bray is a capable QB but will be tested many times going up against the likes of Florida, Georgia, LSU, Alabama and Arkansas. If he comes out of all this unscathed, win or lose, he has won his due respect.
Matt Simms, as capable as he is missed the train when Bray seized the reins last season and will most likely see the remainder of his college career as fourth quarter finisher. And even that he will have to share with Justin Worley.
The good thing for the Vols is that at the moment, there aren't any negatives from the QB position other than deciding who the best man is.
