Default My Key to the Clemson Game

I believe a healthy Shaw will be the key to the Clemson game. Shaw clearly isn't healthy, his mobility is extremely limited. I think our offense is significantly weakened when Shaw doesn't have the ability to run. Teams don't have to respect the QB run on the zone read and Shaw's ability to pick up 3rd downs with his legs isn't there. Two years ago his ability to scramble against Clemson was deadly and I believe it could be the X-factor IF he is able to get healthy. I was hoping that after the bye week Shaw would be significantly healthier than he appeared to be Saturday night. Honestly I found the lack of improved mobility discouraging. Hopefully his health can see a much bigger improvement over the next two weeks than it did in the previous two weeks.

Yea. I feel like he was under a lot of pressure to make better passes against Florida for that reason. It showed too. He was off most the night lol. I was literally "jaws on the floor" after the passes to Bruce and shon that he over threw. Obviously Florida has a better defense than Clemmy, but they can still get some pressure back there if our O line doesn't get back to being a force.

Florida did a great job on keeping Shaw in the pocket. He was just a bit off throwing the ball. A few inches here or there and it was not a close game.

We will have to figure out a way to get pressure on Boyd with our front 4. Something we haven't been able to do with any consistency all year.

This ^ coupled with a tough zone coverage.

Clemson likes to play man to man and use their fast DE for a speed rush. That is a recipe for Shaw scrambles like he did two years ago.

If Clemson plays zone, then Spurrier will pick it apart.

Clemson likes to blitz so watch for a better screen game. UF oth did a great job of containing both screens, swing passes to the backs, and scrambles.

Nah, usually this is the case, but not with Clemson. Stopping their run will have very little to do with the outcome.

GT pretty much completely shut down Clemson's rushing game and Clemson still scored 55 points. Clemson's rushing game has been shut down several times this year in games where they have scored 40 points or more.

They key is to stop the home run ball. Even if we get called for pass interference and give them 15 yards. They are not a good offense in the red zone. But Watkins, Bryant, and Williams will burn you if they get a chance to catch the long ball…. Even if you have good coverage.

They have three legitimate future 1st rounders at WR.

But we have consistently done it v. the taters. Has to be our best pass rushing effort of the year.

This isn't fantasy land you know? You can't just make this stuff up as you go along. Don't jump in here with assertions not supported by clear evidence.

This shows me how little some people know about the game. Score output has nothing to do with the outcome of a game.

Just look at the Clemson-FSU game. The final SCORE was 51-14 FSU, yet if you talked to any one of the reliable Clemson fans you would have realized that Clemson won that game convincingly and your whole "score more points than the other team" is proven to be way off-base and just downright offensive.

Take your magical "Final Score" statistical theorem someone else buddy, we have no use for it here...

pressuring boyd early.. force him into bad throws ... clemson is going to score.. they will have a few big plays as well but if you can limit those and force quick 3 and outs ... coupled with long offensive drives ending in td's not fg's when we have the ball... i think we are going to have to play our best game of they season on defense especially in the secondary .. clemson has good WR

Stop the run and make Boyd move. If you can't get pressure on him he will light you up. In part years we've found a great job of getting consistent pass rush but this year that been an issue so that's my key to the game

This, it's what we've done the past few years. Control time of possession, finish drives with touchdowns, frustrate the Clemson offense by keeping them on the sidelines.

A big part of that is Shaw running for first downs to keep drives going.
