lmao this is why Luck isn't playing

I was just thinking the same thing honestly. The line isn't ready, no point in dangering Luck.

Great pass protection there, just a bad pass by Tolzien. Dorsett was wide open for a 1st down. Now because of that Pat gets a Punt blocked. At least it's only a safety.

Recievers seem to be getting seperation, which is positive. Right side of the line has been swiss cheese and Tolzien has been inaccurate.

People need to remember though..1st year center, Good new at RG... so it's probably gonna take a number games to get it together.

Really wishing we had that extra game to go towards the right side of the line getting their ducks in a row.....

I know people are already gonna start with our line is still trash and all that jazz and act like it's a dumpster fire already. Cause they expect our O line to all the sudden be great right off the bat. Not wanting to realize the new guys we got in there and the fact that Kelly had not seen alot of the looks he gonna see from NFL level defenses so it's gonna a learning time for him as far as being able to recognize things and make calls.

Yep, which is why pre-season games are so important. Let's give them learning experiences without worrying about the games counting.

No one's saying that right now. I mean, it's not like the line could've gotten any worse.

Green hits with his shoulders a lot. That could get him hurt if he isnt careful..at Clemson he did the same thing.

Bills seem to be running plays on offense and defense they would run in the regular season. Not anything vanilla.

Butler has looked terrible every play on defense so far. Green has looked alright! D line still getting nothing.

 

Sometimes I'm glad there are so many preseason games. Lol

That was a good throw from EJ.

I think it was probably one of the better fake handoffs I've seen in awhile can hardly blame butler

    • I buy his change in attitude, it's refreshing.

      But my problems, or I guess my questions, with Pagano are more just about his actual coaching ability. He can change his ways all he wants but we'll see if he's actually able to coach this team up.
    • Part of it is the negative side of a zone blocking scheme.  With zone blocking the line is supposed to flow to the play side so that means a lot of times on even fronts there is a guy unblocked (I don't remember if the D was in an even front or an odd front on this play).  On the play mentioned by the OP (I think it was Turbin on the delay not Mack) without knowing the specifics, that could just as easily be on the QB and not the scheme.  The QB needs to be able to see uncovered defenders, he should have sent the TE in motion to that side.  If there is a defender not covered by the zone, you usually want him near the POA so that player gets caught up in the cluster as the oline flows to the play side.  That is why I think this is on the QB, he has got to know the blocking scheme well enough to identify the player that is not going to get caught up in (we call it the wave but that's because it's easier for 7th graders to understand a wave rather than a moving zone) the wave and adjust the formation accordingly.   It could also be the scheme which, if that's the case, then Philbin needs to be fired immediately.  You cannot develop a blocking scheme that leaves a defender on the LOS unblocked on a delay or misdirection type play, players in the NFL are too fast for that.
    • I'm buying that he is noticeably different in what he says. You can tell in his press conferences that he is vocally expecting more out of players than in previous seasons (atleast publicly). Time will tell if this mantra produces any changes.
    •   Yep, that is why I used the term 'mediocre' for Tolzien, that is why he is a backup and has a limited ceiling, IMO.   I also felt Chud did him no favors in the game vs Cowboys till a few drives later when he called for a few plays down the field (or maybe it took Tolzien a while to realize he had to look for those reads because typically wide outs are available at different levels for most plays called). What I did not like about Tolzien that he chose to run for the goal line twice vs the Steelers last year thinking he was Luck, he should know better not to do a QB scramble by the goal line, he is not as fast as he thinks he is.  
    • 5 Point Plan 1) Ask Ballard to sign me a couple of serviceable backup OL 2) Ask Ballard to sign a decent backup QB so I don't throw up every time my O comes off the field 3) Ask Ballard to sign me a veteran CB who can cover AND tackle 4) Pray 5) Polish up my resume
