Another trick shot QB looks for his 15 minutes

Posted by Chip Patterson

Everyone hopes for their chance at fame, and few backup quarterbacks have gotten attention like Connecticut's Johnny McEntee.  McEntee recently lit up the interwebs with his trick shot compilation video.  Currently the video has hit 4.8 million views, so Johnny Mac might be on to something here.

So here come the impersonators.  I have no problem with replication, or trying to improve the product.  But Monmouth quarterback Alex Tanney gets advertised in his YouTube video as "even better than Johnny Mac."  While many of Tanney's throws are impressive, I fail to see the difference between these videos and something that would be put together by Dude Perfect.  Is it cool? Absolutely.  But does it display actual quarterbacking prowess?  Not entirely.  Which is why it was so silly that a radio host recently asked McEntee why he wasn't the starting quarterback.

So it's the battle of the trick shot quarterback.  Who do you think is more impressive?  Monmouth's Alex Tanney or Connecticut's Johnny McEntee?  Let us know in the comments section below.
