Charlie Weis still has confidence in Brissett, Driskel



The return of senior QB John Brantley is a welcome relief for the Florida Gators as they head into Saturday's Georgia game, but that doesn't mean offensive coordinator Charlie Weis doesn't have faith in backups Jacoby Brisett and Jeff Driskel.

The two shared time during Brantley's absence, with Brissett starting against LSU and Auburn. And if Brantley is unable to return, as expected, this weekend, Brissett again would start.

Earlier this week Weis talked about what has pushed Brissett ahead of Driskel and why he still believes both will be great quarterbacks for Florida.
