I like the 'Or' here. I thought Jalin should have been given more carries last weekend. It's a 'win/win' situation in my book and keeps more options for offensive weapons and planning.

Comment 01 Sep 2014

Understood; but I wonder if this is similar to last season when we found out Rod Smith was suspended for the first game just prior to it being played, which stemmed from an incident during previous Jan/Feb timeframe. This 'may' not be something that just happened, but a suspension that was known to MB since before Spring ball. Again, speculation on my part.

This is not a dig at Dontre, but if that's what it means, then get Jalin more touches. I was impressed with him (and Dontre), and believe it's more than a good idea to have both as legitimate options.

Agreed. Stated similar feelings in different thread. Let's see what happens against 'normal' offensive schemes before the 'Fire Fickell' threads go full steam. Relax and breathe a bit until then.

Not agreeing with the OP one way or the other, but two thirds of their starting DL went down with injury during the game. That contributed to the fourth quarter run gashes; along with fatigue.

Comment 31 Aug 2014

My take for what it's worth... running game and plays seemed predicated on the OL situation; once that is sorted out, a more consistent and wider array of plays and personnel will be seen.

Linebacker play / scheme is still a wonder at this point. Part of it, particularly for this game is the uniqueness of Navy's triple option. However, they didn't have an answer the majority of the game to get the pitch man, and using a safety/corner at times seems desperate or shows a lack of confidence in personnel. In addition, again, I know, Navy is unique, but I don't want Kwon to disappear all year like Vonn last season, and then wonder why he didn't get in sooner.

I like J.T.'s touch. While he may not have a cannon, I didn't see him overthrow a receiver at all. I don't expect Braxton in the running game, but I like the fact he will run to keep the defense honest.

One note- in the opening it cites J.T. as leading rusher with 50 yards, then states EZ had 53.

Absolutely on the 120; it's just pretty difficult to find.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

We never really said there was a Sante Claus. We kept with the true reason for celebrating Christmas, and let them know that while the individual Sante Claus had some 'factual' basis, he was more of a symbol for giving.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

It may be premature and bold...but while initially stunned by the news of Braxton's injury, it occurred to me that this could be a rallying point for the team, the staff, for the entire season. All the pundits will now totally dismiss the teams' chances, and the team can use that as an 'us against the world' mentality. It's not a given, just the gut feeling of the opportunity before them.

Concur. Do not agree with the assessment on Knox and J. Jones, possibly Taylor. If Knox and JJones are surefire redshirts, here's betting all the 2014 OL are surefire redshirts. 

Also, I wouldn't sleep on Erick Smith being a contributor. He has a Ronnie Lott type of playing attitude.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

Don't know why, but I get a 'Ronnie Lott' type impression about Erick.
