I expect him to know how to adjust, which he clearly doesn't.
Some people have contracted a permanent hard on for Jalin since he committed. Some people have done the same thing with Dontre. Pretty much any thread discussing one of the two turns into a "who I personally like more, I won't use stats to support my argument" fest.
The 49'ers Front Office is also ran by dumbfucks who are equally as difficult to work with, yet much less successful.
Braxton is a better playmaker, JT is a better QB.
I said the exact same thing this past Saturday when Herman repeatedly tried to force it up the middle inside the 10 (and repeatedly failed). So, yes I agree 100% with what you're saying...but I have no idea what the cause for Herman "clamming up" is, I just hope he figures it out soon.
You all do realize the revamping of the pizza was started when Brandon was there, right? It was his idea, it just went live with the public after his departure.
Alex Smith, the list goes on and on. It happens quite often.
Unnecessary? Yes. Valid? Yes.
When he begins catching well thrown balls, I will gladly retract my statement. Until then, I stand by my comment.
If Corey Smith never took another meaningful snap, I can't say I would be sad at all.
JT Barrett and Vonn Bell
Chip Kelly is/was an "offensive genius", Tom Herman is not. He is not even in the same stratosphere as other "offensive geniuses", IMO. Herman lost my confidence against Northwestern last year when I watched him (and it wasn't the first time by any means), as he calls it, "Fall into old bad habits." From there I kept quiet and gave him the benefit of the doubt because he was winning games. Now it seems that Braxton and Carlos helped to hide many of his inadequacies. He has shown no real ability to make necessary in game adjustments and I think a team with this much speed and talent deserves better. He seems to show up with a game plan (in most cases not a great one) and he runs it into the ground regardless of it's rate of success or failure. The few adjustment he does make are generally overdone and make us predictable.
I don't hate the guy, but I'm def not on the side of things where I am fearful he will take a job elsewhere. I actually hope he does so that things organically take care of themself.
Are you familiar with Bear Cover 0 defense? There isn't an O-line in the world that is holding that back type of pressure back for very long at all; especially not one that isn't very experienced and lacks chemistry. Sure the offensive line struggled greatly and should have given JT an extra couple of seconds, but the dogshit play calling by Herman (his standard inability to adapt or design/call quick hitting passing routes) and the inability of our receivers to get separation off the line did us in...the times that they did, they dropped wide open catches on well thrown balls. Those things are a recipe to crumbling under heavy blitz pressure, which is exactly what we did. They brought extra guys and ran 1-on-1 press with no safety help; very high risk but our receivers and play callers couldn't make them pay.
Herman, Smith, Fickell...that's my wish list to be free agents before next year.
Having Braxton out for the season has taken some of the cover off the severely flawed areas we have on the staff and in the offensive scheme. In the long run, I hope this will lead to some positive changes. Until then, we can just watch and hope that the team and staff continue to improve as the season goes on.
Take a lap.
Stopped reading when I saw you were taking things you saw against William & Mary as relevant bases for projecting against tOSU.
I think Dontre will get us a few this year. He's a ton of fun to watching returning the kicks and punt.
You just f'ing jinxed us, god damnit.
In regards to #1, might not have been the best decision by JT to keep on the 3rd down option but he wasn't going anywhere anyway. Stupid play call by Herman, similar to what he did against MSU last yr. It was also stupid not to have the 3rd down run by Eze looked at before rushing to the line for the 4th down, but that's a whole different discussion.
In regards to #6, I'll be the one to say it: I'd guess there's a bit of blame to give to the guy who coaches them and also got demoted from calling the plays and designing the scheme. Down vote away if you must, but I agree there's something wrong there.
#9, agree 100% and I was livid at the time.
He got a run or two...didn't do too much with them though.
And on the first downfield pass, he was on target and Dontre alligator armed it...so he was close to 13 for 15. I, too, was impressed with the young man and feel optimistic about his upcoming season.
Me too, so much.
This is what I am STRONGLY hoping for.
lol 66 points, I like it.
Trey had a knee, which allowed Booker to pass him.
