Sleeve Gate: Where do you stand on Quinten Dormady’s Big Sleeves?

We are answering the tough questions this morning.

In an unexpected turn of events, one of the top storylines of fall camp has been the now infamous sleeves of Quinten Dormady. Apparently he’s elected to go with the old school non-elastic sleeves that you saw back in the late 90s.

The fanbase is split. The sleeves have driven some to compare Dormady to Peyton Manning, who wore those loose sleeves his entire career. Even they weren’t as big and baggy as the ones Dormady has though.

Maybe he’s trying to channel his inner Erik Ainge, Casey Clausen or Peyton Manning. But I’ve got to agree with Ryan here. They’re bad.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen sleeves. With the evolution of the jerseys, elastic sleeves have taken over. I honestly didn’t know the loose sleeves were still an option.

This just looks unnatural. I can’t get the thought of Sam Bradford’s goofy looking sleeves out of my head when I see Dormady now. I mean, wouldn’t these things get in the way? I feel like this would be a hinderance to my ability to throw the football.

This reminds me of NCAA 2014. The first thing that I would do after signing a recruiting class would be to go in and edit my players to make sure they had the tight sleeves. The big loose sleeves looked atrocious on the game.

For some contrast, here’s Jarrett Guarantano rocking the much cleaner elastic look.

Should Quinten Dormady ditch the big sleeves?
