Good post. We need to find some way to disrupt the timing of their pass routes, and I don't think we'll get the push we need from our front guys. I think we'll have a hard time stopping them between the 20's, but should be able to match up better in the red zone.

I fully expect us to give up at least one score due to busted coverage. Ball control is the key to this game.

Game could be a shootout but the X factor is our house.

Respect your opponent, but fear no one. Sounds like too much fear in this thread. Old Carolina again!

Correct. If you can control the TOP for a good part of the game it will go a long way to helping your cause.

What you saw in the past 2 years is not Sumlin's offense. You will see a system who's teams have averaged 360 yds passing per game before JFF keeping that on the sidelines will be a huge factor.

Not sure who is going to bring the pressure. One would hope that English can get around 10 this year.
English or Dixon Jr. needs to go off this year. I think we will see them
Both have 5+ sacks this year. I'm staying optimistic.

Good point and I agree that long drives from us could have a psychological effect on A&M's offense making them speed up even more and perhaps be forced in to careless turnovers.

On the other side of the coin we need to make sure we protect the ball and don't give it away.

Yes, but we'll force them to work it down field methodically and keep everything in front of us like we normally do.

I think they'll get plenty of 1st downs but Red Zone Defense wins this game.

As a football coach and an offensive coach at that, I WANT you to run Cover 2 and try to stop a smash route. Easiest read in the game. If the cover 2 corner sits on the curl, throw it to the corner right right in front of the hash safety. It's pitch and catch. As a matter of fact, it's a sight adjustment for Steve Spurrier's offense, you see cover 2, if smash is not on, call it. (obviously depending on the situation).
