Exclamation Cack's Toast Of The Game: Arkansas

Minus the opening drive, we finally play a complete game. There was a lot of talk about some Defensive starters losing their starting position, and starting out on the bench. I think we saw what this Defense can do with a little light under their tails. Every game this season, our guys would be out of position or be in position and miss the tackle. Minus a very few plays Saturday, they were where they were supposed to be, and brought the ball carrier down when they got a hand on them.

Another thing I saw Saturday that we hadn't in other games. When one guy hit the ball carrier ... 2-3 others were quickly there helping on the play. We've been used to seeing gang tackles in recent past from guys flying to the ball. This season everyone would just watch the play and not help out. I saw a lot of help on Defense bringing the carriers down.

It was a great Defensive showing, but the toast is going back to the Offensive side of the ball this week ...

THIS WEEK'S CACK'S TOAST OF THE GAME ... AGAINST ARKANSAS IS ... CONNOR SHAW

Connor has really opened up the Offense this year, and it has blown up. I have been one of the fans that hasn't been 100% sold on Shaw, but the kid is beasting it this year and deserves some recognition. He went 19 for 28, and from what I can remember, not a lot of those were dump off passes. He fired it into 3 man coverage to complete a first down to Byrd, he read the play perfectly on the first Ellington TD when he went outside and was left wide open, and he hit Byrd in stride on another bomb play. Connor is starting to trust his eyes and arms and it's really showing what time of a QB he can be. Mix that in with his tremendous running ability (3rd and 17 pick up and TD run) ... and I don't see any Defense stopping this Offense. If he's on his game ... the Atlanta Dome is still in the picture.

Honorable Mentions:
Mike Davis - I believe it's been enough for me to start saying ... Davis being Davis

Jadeveon Clowney - The broadcasting crew (although they were completely clueless about MOST of everything else) finally pointed out the impact that Clowney REALLY has on the game, even if he's not making every tackle.

Defense - I think the whole group deserves some love this week. They stayed full speed ahead the entire game. We don't expect keeping every team to 7 points, and shut out after the opening drive ... but we'll take it. We have to have a performance close to this the next few weeks if we want to win these next 2 road games.

Offensive Line - Wow, just wow. So many plays show the amazing job these guys are doing. With just 1 senior on the team, we can only hope and pray all of these guys come back next year. If they return, there's no doubt we'll have the #1 Oline in the nation next year. These guys force their will on any and everybody they're matched up against. Whether it's giving Shaw tons of time on 3rd and 17 before he decides to just take off, or if it's 4th and 2 and Shell gets behind Davis and throws him 5 yards down field. This group is a bunch of BEASTS!!!!!

Pharoh Cooper - Soon, Williams Brice Stadium will adopt the "Cooooooop" cry that we grew to love at Carolina Stadium for Blake Cooper. Pharoh is a PLAY MAKER! He doesn't look that fast, but you just can't take him down ... unless you're the punter

EVERYONE RAISE YOUR GLASS ... HERE'S TO YOU CONNOR SHAW

Week 1 - Offensive Line
Week 2 - Mike Davis
Week 3 - The Receivers
Week 4 - Mike Davis
Week 5 - JT Surratt
Week 6 - Connor Shaw

Agree! Connor played lights out. He is trusting his eyes and arm and his O-line is playing their butts off for him.

Like you say, if these guys come back.....look out!

Side note. I don't think Patrick is playing this week is he?

19 for 28 and his completion % average goes DOWN. When is the last time we could say that about a QB?

Why do you not use "h"?

And screw the 400 yard game, I just hope he doesn't lose another game, regardless of yards..

I personally think the defense had a better game than the offense, especially in the first half.

Shaw has been in Beast-Mode all season!! I also loved the scamper on 3rd and 17 to get the first down! Hated the play after it!!! But then it was the dagger to their psyche when we scored before halftime.

Sweetness never looked so good or felt so right...

Although I never felt Thompson was a better alternative to Shaw, I was never really sold on him until this year. He is still late on a few throws, but last Saturday he was right on the money on everything. Even most of his misses seemed to be throwaways to avoid a sack.

I think it also shows you can be the best coach around but until you get talent and depth of talent the results won't show.

Great write up. Our offense has really exceeded my expectations for this year. It looks like Shaw feels comfortable engineering our drives.
