I was in the "Shaw is the guy" crowd last year, but Thompson, though different, is not much of drop off in my opinon. He will take his chances down the field and when he gets the keys to the car he will impress.

Mike Davis was awesome in that game. Mostly on screen passes, but still, without those we lose.

I believe so as well, and I also think the nation is going to get a taste of this backup named Connor Mitch. How awesome would it be to run up the score and have him come in real time situation in that game. (TAMU game)

Totally agree, I'm ready to see David Williams as well.

Same with UAB that year. I remember seeing Spurrier chunk a playsheet and told Seth Strickland to warm up after Dylan missed on 3 or 4 passes in a row. As soon as that happened, Dylan hit a big one and got going.

Its imperative that he connects on some medium/long range throws early this year.
He stared 1 of 3

I personally like Thompson's style. We're going to need a guy that may take a few chances in a game this season. Gone are the days of running the football, playing conservative, and trying to win 14-10. You HAVE to score points and remain balanced.

Can't wait for August. Thompson will finally get the chance to prove himself as the undisputed starter. He will dismantle TAMU - an appetizer before the rest of the season.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

When it comes to the Mizzou game, the complexion changed with Davis' fumbles. This year, I trust Thompson, but don't want to rely on him. With the players we have, we should be a run heavy offense. We have one of the strongest RB stables in the nation. Shaw has spoiled us, and we are going to have to get used to a QB who throws an interception or two in the game.

This is what I am most optimistic about with Thompson. He has known for a long time that he is the starter of the South Carolina Gamecocks. I think (and hope) that that pressure has caused DT to be a workhorse when it comes to practicing, gym time, and the viewing of game film. I hope Shaw taught him a thing or two about leadership and work ethic. I want to see a dramatic improvement from this year to last year.

Thompson has been a good QB. I have been nothing but impressed with him and never disappointed. A few games that come to mind was Carolina OWNING Clemson in Death Valley with Thompson as our QB. Then Thompson's performance against Michigan. I also have a feeling Carolina is going to win much more then an SEC East title for 2014. (With Thompson)

Agree. That pass to fuller was a perfect dart 25 yards down field on a rope right where it had to be. That being said... Excited for the future but Dylan is the best option right now. He should know the offense like the back of his hand.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

The question with Conner was Stop the QB run with 8 men in the box and one spy on Conner Shaw. The question with Dillion is which passing game to stop. The tighends, Wideouts, Slots. This will also open the run game. We are strong in both areas. How would you approach stopping the gamecock offense. The only way I see it is to keep them off the field. By the third game, Dillion will be the #1 QB in the SEC, Mike Davis #1 RB.
What would you do.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

The way to beat USC is to blitz and play man coverage.

Teams could not blitz us very much because of the threat of Connor breaking loose for big yards with everyone turning their backs to him. So they played a lot of Cover 2 zone and tried to bring some different looks to keep everything in front of them. That is when USC starts picking you apart with Curl/flat combination routes and down the seams.

With Dylan, however, you can man up on the outside and bring a bunch of people to test an offensive line that has been mediocre in pass protection. If you have success getting to Thompson, you'll eventually get Spurrier to go into a shell and at that point you can load the box to stop Davis.

USC's key this year is to play ahead of the chains and don't turn it over. Do those things and things should hum nicely.
