Lol thin? Worley, Baker and Jones would beg to differ. Of all the spots on the team and you're worried about one of the deepest units on the team. We have LB's out the a**.
He's not in rivals.com top 100 but he's a 5 star on 24/7.
Antonio put on a ton of bad weight watching him run in the all star game was like watching a full back. Once he gets back in shape he runs similar to Bryce Brown, Nick Chubb and Damien Harris.
Another one not mentioned was the ankle breaker juke move vs Cal for 55 yds.
Last time I checked Sparty doesn't have a Peppers.
The passing game will be a new offensive wrinkle Beck shows next season. He's also saving the Miller passing game for the 2016 season.
Looked nothing like the Michigan state game last year. Ok so you named one game in a tough environment.
Both are great backs but run with different styles so I don't see how you could argue that losing him is good. His speed for his size is impressive. We go from having 2 great backs to now having one, and our rivals get exactly what they need out of the situation. Don't know how you're spinning positives, we don't really have depth at the position.
That's an easy one because of many events: Playing as an underdog in each game and being told by many that we couldn't win the games, finishing the season for Barrett, playing for Karageorge, and Urban Meyer's post season motivation tactics are 2nd to none (see 2006). Playing with a mean streak is pretty easy when there's many doubters.
I mean he could have thrown it in a 5 yd radius and they would have both still been TDs but cardale is hitting guys more in stride.
When the defense has to account for 2 effective ball carriers running different directions it spreads them out. It makes both runners more effective.
I think it's pretty clear that JT can throw hence 2800 yds and 34 passing TDs last year. It's just a matter of what the coaches want to do and how much they want to show. Barrett hit Thomas for 18 yds on 3rd and 16. JT is the better QB in the red zone for 2 reasons, a more versitile playbook (read option) and quicker decision making. The play calling/ holding back the reigns on offense has hand cuffed us. They are finally catering to both qbs strengths and we should see results accordingly. Both qbs have presnt great skill sets. The read option should really be revisited because it presents some gapping holes in the defense as we saw with our defense getting exposed. With Barrett and Elliott running the read option, Elliot started ripping off some big runs.
Yeah the single season big ten td record holder couldn't have hit 2 wide open receivers in the end zone. Still way too many stalled drives by Jones. Need to pour it on early.
Jones has had zero red zone TDs before today until his throw to Miller. Barrett still looks the better of the 2 great options. His skill set is more versed.
Finishes drives with TDs. The read option makes our running game hard to stop. It's pretty obvious to see, Meyer went to him in basically every red zone trip.
Right now he doesn't hit guys in stride, see the field, make quick decisions or throw TD's in the red zone. So the 1st and 2nd round stuff is out the window right now but he has time to improve.
What Cardale Jones have you been watching?
You're blaming Jones inaccuracy on 6'0" recievers instead of 6'3" recievers that's pretty laughable Barrett and Jones didn't have that problem last year with the same receivers. You act like there's that big of a difference, the average tallest reciever per team in the NFL is probably 6'3". There is a little bit of difference in catch radius obviously but the problem is redzone accuracy and touch. Thomas was wide open in the endzone yet he threw it the only place he couldn't catch it, over his head. Marshall's had too much velocity on it.
He could be 30 of 32 for 500, but the problem is he's falls apart in the redzone. We have 0 passing TDs in 5 games in the redzone. The goal of a QB is to finish drives that with TDs. 1 passing TD per game is going to lead to a bunch of losses. It's not all his fault but the throws in the endzone where he had Marshall and Thomas were his fault. He threw Marshall's way too hard and Thomas's was too high coming out of his break. He's completing a good percentage but he has to make the redzone throws and has to see the field a lil better.
You mean the read option we saw in all 15 games last year. Oh no you don't care about anyone except Cardale Jones. His games are the only ones that matter to you.
It's not the same offense, there's no read option anymore. Makes Zeke less effective because the defense doesn't have to account for Cardale's legs. Why did Samuel disappear for half the game and magically re-appear in the 4th quarter, he's been arguably our best offensive threat.
