I hope he doesn't throw that many passes a game because it means we will have a defense similar to the 2018 one.
Baron Browning may have more straight line speed and a faster first step, but his lateral quickness is nowhere near that of Pete Werner's. He is very stiff.
Oh you misunderstood me. I am not saying that we lose to Maryland with Burrow, just that the defense nearly lost a game when we had about 700 yards. Joe Burrow definitely could of won it as well, but it wouldn't be a forgone conclusion considering how poorly the defense played. Jk Dobbins also had over 200 yards rushing as well.
Joe Burrow's mobility could of helped in winning the Purdue game, but I could also see Joe Burrow losing that Maryland game because the defense couldn't stop anything.
Definitely has some sarcastic undertones. Probably a troll on their site lol.
Yep, that is true. I remember a post in this forum of Curtis Grant firing up the team with a speech. He was the ultimate leader amongst men. Hopefully Baron Browning can follow suit.
I could see taking Dwayne Haskins over Joe Burrow, but not Justin Fields. At least for right now. All 3 QBs can make all the throws, but Justin Fields needs to improve the speed he makes his progressions, which usually takes some seasoning to do. Not sure if it is by design or not, but I would also like to see Justin Fields hitting some of those quick hitters over the middle. Most of the passes seemed to take a lot of time to develop. That last drive we had was perfect up until that interception because the ball was leaving Field's hands in a hurry, similar to what we seen with LSU. Add in a to rushing attack, and our offense will be unstoppable.
I believe we would of been in good hands with both QBs (though I do think our offense would of been slightly better with Burrow because of his mobility) so I don't see the need to bash either. Dwayne Haskins was not the reason why we did not win the championship and for anyone who thinks he was a problem, just stop. Our Defense was subpar and the offensive line not nearly as good as this year's line. I felt it worked out for all parties involved.
Josh Perry, Raekwon/Curtis Grant and Darron Lee I believe.
I agree and Pete Werner's improvement was most impressive. In 2018, he was too weak to fight off blocks, a poor tackler and was in the wrong position a majority of the time. This past season, he was arguably the best linebacker. Didn't have flashy stats, but he was always around the ball, showed off great coverage skills and was a much better tackler. If he can make another jump this season, Werner has a chance to be an all BIG linebacker and even All American.
So since I made an observation about our poor mlb play, I should root for LSU? Maybe I should of said that Browning and Borland were amazing then.

We had no Patrick queen at mlb and that was a big difference
It takes a QB to put the ball where it needs to be, and Joe Burrow always puts it in that spot.
Burrow is a much better passer than Lawrence
He was "defenseless" way more than Lawrence was. A much more dangerous play
When you say linebackers, it should be just Baron Browning and a little bit of Malik Harrison.
Simmons is one of the most impressive college players I have ever seen. Without him, Clemson defense would be trash
The terrible field didn't help with tackling in space, that is for sure
I think his speed is about the same as a healthy Justin Fields. Neither is super fast, but both can move
Go Joe Burrow*
Fixed it for you
Kind of easy to run past the defense when the linebacker is constantly in the wrong position.
Feel kind of bad for him. He is like Marty, always choking in the big games
I see us being more like Clemson under Deshaun Watson than LSU with Joe Burrow. I feel confident in Pete Werner but the other 2 linebacker spots are a mystery. Browning simply was awful that last game and Malik Harrison had a surpringly bad game as well. The offense should be fun to watch.
