    Cody Hawkins is the awesomest

    QB Hawkins studies up to get leg up on competition - Buffzone

    Maybe I'm reading this the wrong way, but this kid needs to check himself.

    1) Starts the interview by referring to himself in 3rd person.

    I've always kind of been more of a field general and a leader. You know, when we've got guys in place, I think Cody Hawkins can be pretty good.
    2) Continues his theme of "it's not me, it's everybody else" by blaming his teammates for his lack of execution last year.

    I just got to the point last year, and I think it was because I was so competitive, that with a lot of the injuries we had I was focusing so much more on the end result. Like if we can't block this blitz, how am I going to complete this pass. Rather than, this is my drop, this is what I've got to do and I've got make sure I have good mechanics.
    I feel kind of like last year I knew what was supposed to happen on every play, but when there is so much gray area in your mind like, 'Oh my gosh, this is what is supposed to happen against Cover Two, but I may not have time to hit that if we aren't holding up on the right side.'



    Or I'm sprinting out and he's the only X we've got and I know he's supposed to be a winner here, but can I trust that? I've stopped worrying so much about what the result of the play is and I'm just focusing on my job.
    3) Says that the top-performing QBs aren't better than him, they just have better players around them.

    I'm good friends with kids in the conference who have thrown for a ton of yards. I've been places, like camps, and thrown around and they aren't supermen. A lot of it is their situation, the personnel and what they're putting into it.
    4) And then there was this gem:

    I mean, I feel like I'm a very cerebral quarterback. I'll give you $20 if you can find a guy on our team who can draw up Xs and Os better than I can and explain stuff out on the field better than me.

    There are a few others in there that made me shake my head, also. Good grief... how lucky are we to have quality guys like AA and JT leading our team?

    I thought you actually had to do something to be that cocky.

    Nope!

    Hopefully daddy smacks him upside the head for this, but I'm guessing it won't happen. This season is do-or-die for Coach Hawkins. I've always had a lot of respect for him but his son is a bit arrogant with nothing to back it up.

    Wow, what a conceited little jerk. I'm sure those comments will inspire his linemen to work even harder to protect him.

    Or hopefully make them just let all our D lineman go free when we play them

    Re: Cody Hawkins is the awesomest

    If they have a healthy O-line this year the one thing that's going to keep them down is lack of a D1 QB. Hard to believe he can make those kind of comments when he wouldn't start on any other team in the conference.

    I believe that it will become apparent to more and more people this year that Hawkins misses having Chris Peterson running his offense.

    Is he mental? Cylax wants to know if Cody Hawkins is mental?
