Re: Are we being too hard on Deke?
In short, yes. The man needs to be able to have time to get a feel for the way Ward likes to call his defense, then Adams can adjust his line calls accordingly. We've already seen Adams get confused during one play against Vanderbilt (which isn't good), so give the man a little more time before passing judgment. If similar issues remain by the time we get to week 7 or 8, then I think there's a legitimate problem.
