Default 400 pasing yards

Since Spurrier has been here we havnt had a QB throw 400 yards in a single game. Which is pretty crazy. 400 yards isnt what it used to be. But its still a lot of yards. And something id like to see. I know stats dont matter if you dont win.

Garcia was the closest at 380 something at UK in 2010. Had like 300 at the half.

I think steve taneyhill was our last QB to toss 400 yards. Thats a long time. We normally put our backups in way before our starter has a chance to rack up that many yards.

That's not our style of offense. Even in blow-out wins (eg, UK 2011) we don't have a QB throw for 400 yards.

Default Re: 400 pasing yards

Spurrier offenses don't run the tempo required to get 400 yards. He always seems to want the offense to call the play at the line, see how the defense reacts, then decide whether he wants our QB to audible into another play or not. That makes our offense move at a snails pace. Unless we straight up torch a team for 250-300 yards in the first half, I doubt any QB ever throws for 400 yards under Spurrier again.

They'll get their chance when they deserve it.

The coaches think Dylan, Wilds, and Davis are better, which they are, and they will be the ones that play. Stop trying to beat a dead horse.

Default Re: 400 pasing yards

We have had a fair number of games in which the QB had huge first half numbers but then hardly threw the ball the second half. Like Connor v. Arky and Kentucky last season. Dylan v. UGA this year. Seems like we get pretty conservative in the second halves of those games. Fine with me if it works, but I do think we run an offense capable of producing 400 yards in the air every once in a while if we stayed with the passing game more.

Default Re: 400 pasing yards

If we have a QB throw for 400+ yards this year, it will likely be in a game like aTm..... where we have got our ass kicked, abandoned the run, and throw every down trying to make a comeback!

This is not SOS's formula for victory any more.....

Having said that, one thing may change after last Saturday..... we may no longer sit on a lead..... In my opinion, next time it is 20-7, we will still be trying to score! Maybe not taking as many chances, but not sitting on the ball either!

aTm was a devastating loss...... and losing to Mizzou was equally devastating! Now we have to win in Auburn and Florida to even come close to making up for the 2 losses..... god help us! LOL

Not giving up, but I have definitely lost that swagger..... the team may have as well! Perhaps that is a good thing. We will likely not meet the high expectations we had entering the season. This could lead to 2 possible outcomes: 1)we embrace the underdog status 2) we fold like a lawn chair!

Playing in Lexington will not be an easy task! Stoops has UK believing they can compete, and the offense they run along with a QB capable of running could give our already struggling defense more problems.....

Instead of passing for 400 yards, I would be much more happy if we could run and pass for 200 each. This would give us balance, and our best chance to win......

Default Re: 400 pasing yards

I don't really care how we win, so if our qb has to throw for 400 yards, so be it.

That said, for our history, we've had 4 games where the qb threw for 400+ yards. 3 of them were Taneyhill (473, 451, and 405). Todd Ellis (425) has the other one. The most recent game was Taneyhill's 473 game against Miss State on 10/14/95. The closest we've been to 400 under Spurrier was Mitchell throwing for 388 in 2006. Garcia threw for 382 in 2010 and that's the closest we've come to 400 in the last few years.

And we went 2-2 in those games.
Most of those high passing games are shootouts where both defenses are getting creamed or can't defend the long ball. I enjoy watching balanced offenses much better than shootouts.
I enjoyed watching Steve Tanneyhill play, but I'd rather watch a healthy Marcus Lattimore with a 2013 version of Connor Shaw.

You do know that when Thompson got dinged up Sat that Orth was the qb that was warming up. Does that indicate that Mitch is ready?
