Notre Dame QB Everett Golson Knows He Needs To Keep Getting Better

Many of the Notre Dame faithful believe in Fighting Irish sophomore quarterback Everett Golson after his solid 12-for-18, 144-yard, 1-touchdown/1-interception performance last Saturday in Dublin, Ireland, in a game the Irish dominated, 50-10, over Navy.

While fans might think Golson is the man to settle the position and coach Brian Kelly reaffirmed his decision to continue with Golson in comments this week, Golson sees his standing as a week-to-week situation.

"My job is not certain right now," Golson was quoted as saying in the Chicago Tribune. "I still have my foot on the gas pedal."

Meaning he has to keep moving forward and faster in his development in order to keep the high-profile job, in his opinion. Golson cited a number of things he has to work on, including mechanics, footwork and being more decisive with his reads.

The 22nd-ranked Irish (1-0) face Purdue (1-0) in South Bend this week. The Boilermakers figure to be a stronger opponent than Navy was last weekend.
