Brent Venables might think twice about blitzing Texas QB Quinn Ewers

Shutting down freshmen quarterbacks is usually simple and straightforward. Throw complex blitzes and coverages at him and rattle his cage. It might not be that simple for Oklahoma on Saturday.

Quinn Ewers’ arm talent is well documented. Albeit, his instincts and ability to keep composure rival his arm strength for his best trait.

Ewers has an innate ability to make plays on the fly. Some call him a gunslinger for that reason. In addition, Ewers is a cold-blooded assassin in the pocket, unfazed by adverse situations he is presented with on Saturdays.

Can you rattle a quarterback who fearlessly stared down the team of the last decade in his second start? I will have to see it first.

The Longhorns can also count on three players for which Oklahoma has no answer. Texas can get the ball to Xavier Worthy, Bijan Robinson and Ja’Tavion Sanders fairly quickly. If Oklahoma blitzes, they better get to the quarterback quickly.

Shutting down Quinn Ewers is not going to be a simple task for Oklahoma. Brent Venables will need to bring his best game plan of the season on Saturday.
