Default Did we blitz at all? Offense took foot off the gas early!

I saw some pressure from 4-5 at times but for the most part we rushed 3-4 guys and anybody could see that the offense took there foot off the gas early. I said all week if we scored fast and early it would get Vanilla to say the least & it did, every time we ran Davis or Wilds and then mixed in the pass we scored, there was a few of our possessions where you could tell "they were trying stuff". But overall considering how the nation was saying UNC could beat us it was a good, safe, vanilla at times, no blitzing game.

positives: Shaq, Davis, Wilds, kickers

negatives: running Shaw to much & Hampton returning punts/kick offs! we can't afford to lose either of them & Thompson not getting enough playing time.

not worried about: the defense, yesterday was the hottest, most humid its been all summer, it was 110 in my shop at 3:30.

go cocks!

When a team runs screens and short slant routes, they are wanting to you rush 5-6 guys. Luckily we didn't fall for it.

Don't know about taking our foot off the gas persay, as some of it where a few drops and penalties. Its the first game...par for the course. Based on our normal history of looking bad, but always winning in our openers, I'd say it was pretty good.

Shaq did some good things, but he also had the drop in the end zone. He is getting there and will be there. Jones was the most consistent one out there.

With Shaw it is less about them running him to much, and more about what Spurrier has been telling both him, and Garcia when he was here...slide. Both seem to think they are Jerome Bettis or something.

From what I can tell the LBs did a good job of things, considering the youth there, you didn't see much of it. Sure there was some, but nothing concerning.

Positives for me: RBs, Kickers, Jones, LBs, depth

Negatives: Referees, and David Pollock (can't find much on the team I'd consider a negative right now)

just some of my thoughts.

It may have been the size difference but the offensive line opened up some big holes last night

I did not see us blitz at all. We held unc in check while only rushing 4 or less all night. They scored the fewest points and gained the fewest yards against us than in their previous 12 games.

We didn't need to blitz against them, our defense was light years ahead of their offense.

Default Re: Did we blitz at all? Offense took foot off the gas early!

I was about to get sort of concerned about the DL play in the first game post-lawing, but then I remembered when we played Southern Miss and they didn't do a ton either. So I think maybe it was largely the offense they were going against. I would like to see better tackling on the back end, but maybe that's first game stuff. Thankfully Gurley came in and he can get a guy on the ground.

No reason to blitz UNC when you have A. a great D-line B. the offense getting the ball off in 2-3 seconds every time.

Exactly, you don't blitz this type of scheme except in maybe 3rd and long situations. I think the announcer who likened this offense to the triple option is right. It is designed to get the ball on the edges in space where your skill players can make someone miss. Then you have a numbers advantage if the first guy misses.

Impressed with Skai Moore. He seemed to be in the pile on almost every tackle.

Also wasn't expecting to really see Griffen at DT. dude made some plays though

Default Re: Did we blitz at all? Offense took foot off the gas early!

I thought Connor looked a little shaky at times last night. He missed picking up on the blitz about half a dozen times, but overall I thought we looked pretty good. That hit on Vic should have resulted in an ejection though. Really hope Spurrier sends that one to the NCAA for review, the kid deserves to sit a game.

I thought we were a little vanilla on defense. But as I saw someone say in the previous post, there wasn't really a need to. The defensive line was in the backfield alot, its just the quarterback got rid of the ball so quick. I like our match up with a more traditional offense like Georgia's next week.

against a team like UNC you keep it in front of you and get them to make a mistake. We diid that very well. If we hadn't helped them on that 1 drive for a TD they would have scored 3. Pretty positive start.

Default Did we blitz at all? Offense took foot off the gas early!

This is my thought of the matchup
Our "undersized" receivers played well and did enough to keep the run game wide open.
Our youth at linebacker didn't hurt us and this is maybe the most pass happy team we will see until we play that team up north. I'm not too sure but it looked like we didn't let them burn us over the top. That's there game is to hit the flats until the backs pull up and play soft and then they throw one to the posts and put 7 on the board. We didn't let them do that. I'm proud of our guys and I'm ready to go to Athens next weekend.

Yeah good point, Griffin was already playing a lot in the middle last night which is damn near unheard of for a true freshman. It looks like he was a GREAT steal! Skai Moore was also really impressive for a late steal type recruit as well. Our defensive staff can freaking recruit. They might need to work on the DE slot though, man those back-ups look like lacrosse players.

Don't forget about Darius... dude needs a sandwich or 8, but he's got a motor... saw him in on a bunch of plays last night.

Dixon Jr. also had a good game too.

Why would you blitz a screen oriented, quick out offense?

Considering that Deke Adams is our DL coach AND was on the staff at UNC last season, I think our Defensive scheme was just fine
