If there’s one prevailing assumption about NC State’s 2014 football team, it’s that the Wolfpack will be much better on offense with transfer quarterback Jacoby Brissett at the wheel.
“We have a good quarterback, and that’s not to take anything from Brandon Mitchell or Pete Thomas,” senior running back Tony Creecy said Sunday during the ACC Kickoff interviews at Greensboro’s Grandover Resort.
“But Jacoby is really good.”
Creecy put obvious emphasis on the “really good” line. He was smiling when he said it, too.
“This offense is going to be a lot better, a whole lot better,” Creecy said.
Brissett threw for 365 yards in the mid-April game and provided the sort of leadership the offense wants.
“He’s leader and we’ll have a lot of leaders,” Creecy said.
That, too, should be important. Brissett will work behind five veteran offensive linemen. Make that six, depending on the recovery of former tackle standout Rob Crisp, who missed all of last season but once was projected a first-round NFL prospect.
