Gotcha, I missed those plays.  One of the joys of streaming is that it freezes and takes a few minutes to get it back up again.  In response to the drops, I guess old habits die hard.

Comment 13 Sep 2014

I realize that I tuned in late to the game.  (7-0 when I was able to turn it on) But where is all this hate coming from?  Last week or today's game?  I didn't really see any drops today when my internet was working (streaming is the worst).

I think he will play a lot on Saturday and then from that point on he will see a significant rise in his snaps.  We played an insanely unique offense in week one and a huge prime time game in week two, so he really hasn't had a chance to get his feet wet yet in situations where the coaches feel comfortable taking the starter out of the game.  

Grant has been good in the first two weeks, however he has not been a game changer and I think McMillan can be that guy eventually

Ross,

I noticed this and you mentioned it, that when the D-line would get pressure on the QB he always seemed to escape.  It appeared to me that the pass rush was undisciplined in their rush lanes leading to holes in the pocket for the QB to step up and avoid the rush.  Is this a correct assessment?

Also, VT did a nice job of moving the pocket to help avoid the rush.  Based on what VT was doing up front defensively, would we have been able to do this as well to buy JT some time to make the throws down field?

I challenge the first question, but agree with the validity of the last two.  The TEs have been forced to stay in and block because our line is still trying to gel and get this whole pass protection thing down, so they need them to stay in and help block.

I said JT because he still gets credit for a TD if he threw to the person who scores

Comment 04 Sep 2014

I here you, another thought picking up what you said is that he is trying too hard in practice to make plays to take over the spot and putting himself out of position if he is gambling too much and at times playing out of position.  Which could possibly lead to the lack of trust.

Comment 03 Sep 2014

It sounds like he needs to practice better.  Purely speculative, but I wonder if during games he is just going out there and playing and during practice he is thinking, which would then lead to him not playing as well during practice as opposed to games?

How did Ole Miss move up?  They struggled for almost the entire game against Boise St.  It wasn't until a few fourth quarter TDs that they pulled ahead.

Here's the deal.  Navy is cutting all the d-line with one extra o-line men to then go cut the middle linebacker.  It appeared that the middle linebacker was responsible for scraping to the pitch man.  The entire game came down to whether or not we were able to get off the cut blocks.  When the ends were able to shed their cut blocks we blew up the outside plays and let to mistakes by Reynolds.  When the ends got cut their play was going to be successful because they had the numbers advantage on the edge.  Also we had no answer for their counter play.  As soon as we would begin to over play the options to the outside they would destroy us with they quick hitting counter that would hit the weakside A/B gap.

They really didn't have he space to juke someone.  I will say that Samuel is very good a spinning as soon as contact is made and so he typically gets an extra few yards.  Same thing with Elliot, he did a good job with showing some of that power.  

Comment 31 Aug 2014

I understand why you think Perry should be on the field always, here is why he wasn't.  We had to have a balanced linebacker front due to their balanced front.  This years scheme is all about making things simple.  So we did, we played with two walk out backers on each side with the same responsibilities so that way we would be in theory ready if they ran to the left or right.  Perry spelled Grant in the middle bc Grant is the starting middle linebacker.  Hopefully that makes sense.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

Hands down it has to be the O-line after the first game.  Do I think they will get better and get the kinks worked out? Yes.  But after what I saw today they have to get better if we want to be able to move the ball with some consistency.  It also was a reality check to how spoiled we were last year with El Guapo and the 4 graduated señors.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

I agree.  For as many tackles he was in on, is seemed like he missed just as many.  Same thing with Bell, he was all over the field making plays and there was only really 1 play that comes to mind where he got like ran over.
