Talkin’ QBs with Chase Goodbread: Discussing The Manning Passing Academy
Chase Goodbread, co-host of the "Talkin' Tide" podcast and Crimson Cover on WVUA 23, joined Host of "Southern Fried Sports" Travis Reier Thursday morning to talk quarterbacks with the 24th annual Manning Passing Academy gearing up.
"I think you got to give it to (Trevor) Lawrence." Goodbread told Reier when asked who's QB one of the MPA. "He's the one wearing the crown right? No one's name is going to pop more than his. Obviously Tua Tagovailoa has more of a resume in college football than Lawrence does, so he's right there too."
Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa will be one of the camp counselors among the 36 college quarterbacks, and one of the eight SEC signal callers.
"I think that a lot of the value in it for the college quarterback is in the classroom," Goodbread told Reier about the significance of the MPA. "I think the Mannings have a pretty direct role, providing them some guidance in general."
You can listen to the full conversation between Reier and Goodbread as they talk quarterbacks and discuss some of the stars they have seen in previous MPAs, and it's significance.
"It was a pretty big year for quarterbacks," Goodbread told Reier about the MPA in 2014. "Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota were down there. Dak Prescott was there, and some other notables. Although, you keep in mind too when you talk about MPA classes, that's not really what it is because a lot of these guys are going more than once."
