I think accuracy is a bigger issue than decision making with him.

Agree, when he stands tall and throws the ball with touch he is a very good QB but if he is tense, feet get happy, or he is amped and tries to throw it to hard he is not accurate, this is what he needs to work on the most. Protection to allow him to stay poised in the pocket as well as pass catchers being on the same page because DT will throw it to a spot with a little pace and touch will be vital to our success this year.

DT did not have a bad game really against Mizzou. People seem to forget he drove us down to the red zone twice and Mike Davis fumbled.

We will be fine with Dylan. Dylan seems to play better when he knows in advance he is the starter. I think you will see a better Dylan now that he knows this is his team. The offense will have to carry us in the first few games until the D gets its legs under it. Much like last year. In fact, I predict this year will be pretty much like last year all over again.

Agree, he is a 55% passer for his career and he will have to improve on that this year for us to be successful.

I didn't say all we will be able to do is run the ball. We will be run-first if they stack the box Dylan will beat them deep.

He will be alright, when he misses it's just barely.

If you have watched the offense when Dylan is in the game, we are far from a run first offense. The only time we even came close to being run first with him was the 2nd half of UCF.

The ball is going into the air.

I'm calling it DT will be above 60% this season the kid has played sparingly for the most part last year and sometimes of the bench he would throw for a td . I think he is getting raked for a mizzou game that a lot went wrong . He knows that what he does on the field doesn't define him. I feel confident with Dylan under center and will support the young man regardless.

I find a lot of this funny. Let's remember Shaw's 1st game vs ECU, IMO he did a good job, just had people drop balls and fumbles. He turned out pretty good. I think DT will be fine this year as well.

And how many times did he just give up on the run game all together? Many more than just one.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

he got us inside the mizzou 35 four times in that ball game including his only drive of the 2nd half. i didnt find anything really troubling about his performance that makes me question how he'll perform this coming season.

he needs to improve his accuracy, but some of the flaws in the past i hope will keep us from asking him to go win a game by himself when its not necessary. its going to be even more important for him to involve the backs because hes not as apt as shaw to gain 10 yards on his own to keep a drive going. the running game, the short passes like in the spring game will hopefully keep him in good down/distance situations and open up some big plays downfield.

we'll see how he responds to adversity this season, but again its not something i worry about. he played well in tight 4th quarters vs clemson and michigan in 2012. he shook off a subpar 1st half vs ucf and went 6-10 146 yards in the 2nd half. there are more reasons to be hopeful than there are to be concerned about him. he can make the throws, he has the smarts, he has the coaching, hes dedicated, he has the size, hes been in the fire, and hes had a chance to watch our best qb ever for multiple years. i expect him to play well.

We'll be more run-first this year though, but Thompson will take his shot down the field.

Default Re: D.Thompson vs mizz u.

Watching the Mizz game, I thought Dylan was only a little off, and frustrated with the situation rather than having a really bad game. With his skill set and tendencies opposed to Connor, I expect to see just how good our backs and tight ends can be catching the ball. I'm also hoping that having Mangus coaching both QB's and tight ends will treat us to some things that've been almost left out the last few years.

Exactly!
Connor's fantastical comeback victory performance could just as easily been derailed if we had two fumbles in the 2nd half as well.
USC went 11-2 because when one man had a bad day another man would step up. The rest of the team would step up as well.
Without the two fumbles by Davis in the first half Dylan would have had Mizzou put away early.
