2014 Boston College Football Offense: Quarterbacks

Tyler Murphy was a find this season, and there is no question whatsoever that his coming to Boston College played a major, if not definitive role in the Eagles being bowl-eligible again in 2014. <p>He constituted nearly all of the team’s quarterback play this season, with backup Darius Wade getting a small percentage of snaps.</p> <p>Murphy added a dimension to the Boston College offense that we have rarely seen: mobility. The Eagles typically have a pro style pocket passer who does his best work inside the hash marks. Tyler Murphy did his best when he had to take off by himself, whether by design or if the play broke down, sometimes breaking off huge touchdown runs.</p> <p>As a quasi-running back, there was very little more of which we could have asked Murphy to do. The final grade here was affected by Murphy’s passing ability. Throwing the football, he was shaky at best, though some of his passes showed nice touch. He had the tendency to force plays, usually with disastrous results, though his passer rating amongst starters was sixth-best in the ACC (even with a low completion percentage).<br /> </p>. QB.
