Yup....   especially now with a more diversified offense...   there’s no need to force the ball this way.... 

 

Use all your weapons...

 

 

I really thought a good screen to get TY or Hines in open space was smart there. Punt the football instead of forcing something on 3rd and long. Defense is playing way too strong to gift wrap 3 points there.

We just don't look like the same team

I would Have to disagree. We’ve been a team that seems to fall off the tracks 2nd half. Cannot keep putting your Defense on the field quickly or giving the other team short fields

Pretty bad display by the offense right now.

 

Have some pride and make some plays!

It's been a long time since I had more confidence in the defense coming up big as opposed to the offense. I expect D to get a big turnover soon.

We have seen it happen way too many times for us to be optimistic.

Not enough pressure now. It’s gone

 

For the D to have held the Skins to 6 points thus far is amazing.  The troublesome part is the offense just looks horrendous.

Well, it is a familiar blueprint.

    • Also I want to note something else.     I don't think the talent around him should be used against Fromm.  Tua is on a loaded team and so is Trevor Laurence who everyone has already crowded as the #1 pick in 2021.     Shoot Tua has 3 receivers who are projected to go in the 1st round.     And quite frankly Burrow's team probably isn't lacking for talent either.  If you want to hold the abilities of his teammates against Fromm I think you should hold it against those others as well.     My biggest worry with Fromm is that he doesn't have the zip to put it in tight windows.     Tua there is actually a little concern about arm strength but the bigger worry is if he's going to survive in the NFL.  Dude has had a lot of injuries for a QB playing behind an Alabama OL.  On top of that he's also on the small side which helps lead to the impression that those injuries are more than just bad luck.  
    • I actually don't think so.  I think with the success of Lamar Jackson (and the NFL being a copycat league), some team will overdraft him and probably take him the first round.
    • I wouldn't support it. Brady has sharply declined. Give me Rivers in a one-year deal. Better version of Brady at this point.
    • Based on his game by game stats here are my impressions.     He folded against some of the better teams.  I understand he doesn't have the talent around him to pull out a win in these games, but I expect a good future NFL QB to have a decent game where he would at least post a stat line that would show that they are alone willing the offense to moving.   Just doesn't happen.     Against LSU - 15/30 for 130 yards 0 TD's 3 INT's   Again I get that he probably had to play hero ball here but I would like to see some hero ball that is actually successful   Against BYU   29/49 394 yds 1 TD 3 INT   His team was down only by 7 at the half.   So you can't excuse his 3 picks on him having to force things.  He chose to force things.    On top of that in games that are competitive.   Against Wake forest.  A game that I will note Utah State was leading at the half  (No excuses)   33/48 416 yds, 3 TD's and 3 Int's.  Given that this was a 3 point game his int's probably cost his team the game here.     On top of that he had an RB that had 141 yards on 19 attempts for 7.1 yds/carry.     Against Nevada which they won handily.     13/31 169 yards 1 TD 1 Int.  In this game he had 2 RB's over 8 yards per carry, another at 6.2 yards per carry, Defense chipped in 2 Int's and he had a kick return for a TD.   Who the heck throws 31 times with your run game and defense destroying them like this?     To be fair towards the end of the season and the bowl game he had some pretty strong games.   But I don't think I can look at this and say "he was on a bad team".  To me the best construction I can put on this is a guy who started believing his own hype, called his own number far more often than he should and endangered the ball far more than he should have in order to impress the scouts.   To be fair if that is the case it can be corrected and it does seem like he might have done that late in the season, in fact he has some statistically solid to good games towards the end of the season after his team was destroyed by BYU.   But at the same time at the beginning of the season he never seemed to lift his team to victory and based on the stats it seems like he might have called his own number or forced some things that actually cost his team the victory.   This does raise questions about his maturity which I think he has to answer.
