I don't get the hate for the offense. Down 10 right away changes the game plan. Spurrier saw how bad the D was he knew he had to be aggressive. I thought the O played good under the circumstances. There is a lot of room for improvement but this loss isn't on the O.

I've never...I repeat never understood running the zone when you're in the 3-4... It serves no purpose except to get your ass whooped.

Because you don't freak out down by 10 and turn to "catch up" mode and abandon the run. A run game controls the clock and gives room for the field to open up for the pass. The team who controls the clock wins the game. Usually, that is from running the ball...but like we saw tonight, it can also be accomplished by a short passing game (screens, curls, quick outs, slants, etc). They established, we didn't...we tried to play catch up and veered from the gameplan I am sure SOS had in place.

Unfortunately, as the game progressed the defense shit the bed continually and we got deeper into a hole where no matter what...run or pass, we needed big gains and first downs.

Not only that, but the passing game never really got under control. Never had a rhythm and we didn't set a tempo with passing the ball around. Thompson was really erratic (high throws in the short game, underthrows in long game).

It says a lot when you realize the total points the offense put on the board didn't even match what A&M put up in the first half.

Yeah, I know someone will say, "We got behind early and had to change the game plan." Ya know what? I don't care, because when it's all said and done, the offense has one job just like the defense. And while the offense did its job better than the defense, BOTH units failed. It is still a team sport, right?
True, the D wasn't worth a crap but the O stunk as well. A&M's D is not a good as we made them look. We won't be able to long-pass our way to wins this year.

The offense did enough to win that football game. Keep in mind the offense never had a chance to execute any sort of game plan because the team got down so quickly. Spurrier even said they had to throw the second half so they didnt even bother playing mike davis.

Eh...we had 2 long TD passes on busted coverage. Other than that, we punted on our other 3 drives and 2 of them were luckily extended by questionable PI calls.

We weren't exactly moving the ball well while our defense was crapping out.

The only time the offense was in a rhythm during the game was for about 3 plays before the 2nd half...other than that, they were pretty terrible too.

it is hard for the offense to get into any kind of rhythm when the defense only gets 2 stops all game.

And yes Dylan wasn't great tonight, but he threw a lot of balls where the receivers had a chance to make a play and didn't...and I am not just talking about the balls that were dropped. To win a game like that at some point your receivers have to come up with a big play...our receivers didn't do that enough tonight.

Well I am pissed at SOS. Are you really telling me that SOS didn't know we have no defense? He is the HBC, the buck stops with him. He should take the blame.

Well, the offense was by no means great at this point but they appear to be repairable at this point. If DT can improve his accuracy, the receivers can stop dropping so many, and we can get a running game going then the O is fine.

It was hard to say the defense on the field tonight is fixable. Maybe they'll improve week by week and be decent by the end of the season but they looked just plain terrible tonight. It wasn't just the poor secondary play, we didn't any real pressure with the front four and ... most importantly ... they looked to be in general disarray from the first series. It's as though they didn't know what they were doing out there.

If the defense gets just 3 more stops, this game would have been competitive with the offense's performance. Not a win, but not an embarrassment, either.

HBC can and should pick at the offense to a certain extent. But 75 percent of our problems are defensive at this point. They gave up more than a third a of a mile of total yards.

I'm not blaming the players as much as I am the D coaching staff.

There's no way there would be that many missed arm tackles if those boys were coached correctly.

Sure did remind me of some of those years not so long ago when I wondered why they kept trying to tackle air. I thought we were beyond that...Evidently not...

I didn't see any questionable PI calls. If anything I saw a couple of calls that were missed, in particular one incompletion where the safety just came up and hit the WR just after he made his break (and beat the CB).
