Moss is the hero for us so far.....he dosent rush well against Clemson...we are 0-2 and Im wearing a brown bag on my head at the OB (j/k).
Our D is good...but Shannon needs to explain to me the zone D call on the long TD drive where Whitehurst picked us apart...what the hell was that about?
Werner is an ass....seriously, we are so vanilla on first down...run up the gut behind Winston every time. No joke, I was right 50% of the time on what play we were running.
We need more shotgun for Wright....the kid dosent understand that he has 3 seconds top to throw the ball or get sacked. Also, I understand play action is effective, but only if the QB can pull it off effectively...so far, Im not convinced Wright is effective doing this. More plays need to be called where we roll him out of the pocket but behind a lineman, this will give hime time to throw and Quad Hill has proven to be an effective receiver for this set.
Where the hell are our wide receivers? Sinorice came to play...but Ryan Moore needs to make that deep catch, Lance Leggett needs to show up to play. Very unimpressed with them. Olson was often doubleteamed....someone should have been open.
Our O-line needs to get their **** together......14 sacks in 2 games? Winston is an all-american? my ass........
Now......had you told me before the season we would be 1-1 after these two games and both went down to the wire......I would have been pissed. But seeing how inept our offensive passing game is, I'll take it. We have a few home games where we should get organized and start to click on offense. I have full confidence that we will be 6-1 after the Temple game. But if our O dosent come around and we dont hang 40-50 on a few teams....Its going to be really hard if not impossible to go to VT and get a win. The things in our favor are the early year experience in hostile environments (Death Valley might be tougher that Blacksburg), the emergence of Moss, Jones, and Thomas (who will be an animal) at TB, and our solid D. The wildcards will be the passing game and the coaching.
So far Im ok with this season.......aside from the fact we are supposed to be an elite program who starts out with two tough road games. I blame Paul Dee squarely for this...the man might be a good attorney....but he is a ****ty AD. I also would have waited until after this season to give Coker an extension (5 years!!!!). If we let coker go, get used to seeing more road games against tough opponents as we are going to be cash strapped from our obligations to the contract. My fingers are crossed....this season is a crossroad for us, we need to roll the rest of the way, establish some dominance again. Can we do this? absolutely, we have the talent, we just need to find a way to show it on the field. This is where the coaches must step up.
I will be at the OB on saturday.....I am going with the expectation that we are going to make a statement out of this game, much like we used to with anyone that dared play us here. Let us not forget....we are still in the picture here for the NC. GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!
