I was just trying to find the stats on qb pressures..I can on remember 2. One where Moore sacked Hill and one where he escaped pressure and threw for the 1st down..Maybe one or 2 more..

Something tells me we're going to ditch it.

I don't think we need it, period.

Sometimes you've got to experiment just to prove that something should be avoided.

I swear that last night on at least two or three plays where they ran to the right I saw the biggest running lanes I've ever seen in forty-five years of watching football.

Their running backs could have broken to the second level in freaking wheelchairs!

What I didn't like was Whammy's look on the sideline. He reminded me of Todd Grantham with the "deer in the headlights... oh, shit, what do I do now" look that he normally has when he plays us.

Whammy did not have a clue how to stop A&M, yet he should have known exactly what they would do. Our adjustments at halftime were either nonexistent or not well thought out.

And moving forward, non one on defense should be named a starter. They should have to survive a knife fight to get out on the field. This team needs to get tough in a hurry.

72% of our plays we ran the 3-4 giving up an average of 7.7 yards a play
28% of our plays we ran the 4-3 giving up an average of 4.4 yards a pay
Dump the 3-4 and play nickel in passing situations. We going to have to live with our DL play.

Usually, that is from running the ball...but like we saw tonight, it can also be accomplished by a short passing game (screens, curls, quick outs, slants, etc). They established, we didn't...we tried to play catch up and veered from the gameplan I am sure SOS had in place.

Unfortunately, as the game progressed the defense shit the bed continually and we got deeper into a hole where no matter what...run or pass, we needed big gains and first downs.

Not only that, but the passing game never really got under control. Never had a rhythm and we didn't set a tempo with passing the ball around. Thompson was really erratic (high throws in the short game, underthrows in long game).
these are the two best posts in the thread. i agree 100% with both of the above statements.
first, you CAN NOT expect guys to be hardnose football players if you treat them like delicate dandelions in practice. the coaching staff not having guys hit hard in practice makes them soft. i understand the coaches don't want injuries, but guess what, this is a man's sport. and it is a tough hardnosed sport. successful coaches make the practices hellishly hard, so the games seem easy by comparison. we need to practice much, much, much more physically. how can you expect them to tackle in the games, if they don't tackle in practice????????? you can't. plain and simple.
and the running game would have kept their offense off of the field a lot more, than we actually did, by passing every down. we could have established the run, with four different rb's. but instead we abandoned it, and only down ten. going for a homerun ball, on a third and one????? really??????

You don't know football. You can't run the ball when are you down by a bunch because it keeps the clock running.

a) I didn't know we were treating our players like "delicate dandelions" in practice. Maybe you mean you are calling for more frequent physical drills like the Oklahoma drill?

b) This is not the first year we have not been physical in pre-season practices. Spurrier has been doing this since he got here. If our previous defenses were physical, it seems that your logic is flawed. You may be engaged in a false cause fallacy here. It is like saying that before a rain you see more people carrying umbrellas. Therefore, people carrying umbrellas cause it to rain. IOW, I don't think your supposition is correct here.

That said, our defense played tentative. That should be corrected. I expect ECU to pay the price of an increased emphasis on physicality.

Our defense has looked shaky in tackling the opener every year. That is due to not hitting. It's a timing issue. Our defense has not hit on all cylinders until later in the season. Practice like you play. I'm not saying Oklahoma drills just live practice ,

Yes I am talking about practice. Practice
