Glad for this thread. Some players who were somewhat wrote off or were struggling in the past are playing well. Dontre Wilson is one of those and our little punter is booming. Washington wasn't playing bad but he is now a force.
Yea, I thought Lewis(59) played a very good game at DE.
It's not just that Jack. I haven't yet re-watched the game but off the top of my head, Bell lets a ball slip threw his fingers on a punt at the goal line, Powell(I'm guessing here) has an interception at the goal line hit in the gut and drops it, I have no idea what Powell was thinking on his pursuit of the QB when he slowed so much he couldn't cut off the edge on the TD run, A mental error in coverage leaves a receiver wide open. I'm sure you can think of a few. I know there were a few possible ints missed but right off hand I can't remember. Later I'm going to watch again and make a list. This things turn a good win into a close game.
Read my comment again. I did not say Cardale was not a leader but wasn't the leader JT is and Urban made that clear. I was responding to a comment about things not being Cardale's fault and I was pointing out that a few things were, not that I don't back Cardale. Please don't twist things I say into something negative.
When does the first playoff poll come out? I doubt we would be #1 with body of work.
Urban said it. Don't you read Urban' comments. He said that JT was a natural leader and that is why he is the first voted soph captain. He went on to say they have to work it out of Cardale. Maybe you should get your ducks in a row before you criticize.
Would like see JT start a game instead of coming in to a game already screwed up with the other team inspired by our bad play.
You can turn that around. There is a lot of talk about what Cardale did last year. All we can see is the product on the field and it's not pretty. He locks in on one receiver and telegraphs it. I can't help to think JT legs would be a factor. JT did have some bad games last year but not every week. If you are right then we are in trouble because eventually we lose with this set up. But if we lose, we lose, not the end of the world because we had a hell of a run and I for one appreciate it.
I don't know about anybody else but my heart hurts. Can't take a whole lot of that. 5-0
The play calling shows how little confidence they have in Jones.
You know Hove, I for one thought it was a mistake not going with JT because of leadership and his running ability but what I don't understand how can we come out trying to establish the run wit 8-9 in the box with our throwing QB.
I can't blame Marshall, that ball was thrown hard on his finger tips.
But those missed TD throws are his. He is not a leader like JT is. Some of those yards were against a prevent.
If you are going to play conservative then go with JT to utilize his legs. If you are going to have a gun slinger QB then throw the ball.
But get near the goal line he is. I miss what JT could do with his legs.
The offense is struggling and not getting much better. Every time someone has the gull to say so they get hammered. No one said fire any body but the ones who feel opinions can't be expressed.
You are stating the obvious.
It's a typical pack. A little bickering but would come to the rescue if anyone of them was in trouble. The little ones sleep in the bed and the rest around the bed.
MSU plays Purdue close every year and people give up on them. It's this time forward the usually come on.
I agree. We will lose eventually and maybe today. It was hard to watch Cardale the first quarter. They screwed up the Saturday game thread so can't have that either.
WE have 11 dogs and 5 cats rescued that now are ours. WE have 2 black labs, A Scooby doo and black lab mix, A corgy, Corgy weiner mix. Mini rat terrior chi mix, a mini ST Charles, Weiner lab mix, some sort of terrior mix, another corgy mix and a beagle.
For Michigan to get there they would of had to run the table. No way do I want them beating us at all.
If some don't like it, so be it. The have the right to say they don't. Quit trying say there is something wrong with it. I want to see it on the field before I know if I like it for sure but I like early pictures. One thing is for sure, If our players want it, then I want it for them.
man you dense punk. It's not the uni, it's the other crap.
All the team I would want to beat are teams that I want to crash and burn during the season. So I'll go with Kansas ST. and Houston because I like the coaches and just getting there would be a great thing for them.
