Does your friend pay a lot of attention to the circumstances surrounding a player's performance? Just two years ago Allen put up 11.5 sacks. And last year he had pneumonia and lost 18lbs. And now he's playing out of position.
I think only a little bit is due to Stewart. Like 1 in 3 runs for < 2 yard gain he might be missing a small hole he could have run through. But for the most part it's just not there. The line is just a big jumble of bodies with no real holes opening up. Some RBs would bounce the ball outside every time they see that, and who knows...maybe that would be more successful for us right now. But that's not Stewart's game and I don't think it's the game our coaching staff wants from their RBs. That style requires good run blocking WRs (we don't have those), and gives you a much higher percentage of truly negative running plays. Those are drive killers for this offense.
I agree, though I am still a bit worried about his tendency to take bad angles. On that really long pass play (can't remember when it happened) where the Houston receiver fell down while running to save the touchdown, Coleman once again took a bad angle when the ball was in the air, which is the only reason that play had a chance to be a touchdown to begin with.
I think we should run the Triple Option like Georgia Tech because we have no receivers and Cam can run well. I wonder how many people will think I'm being serious.
But if I'm actually being serious, I think our offense currently resembles the E-P most closely, and I think that fits our personnel pretty well, tbh. The only problem is the red zone. Cam just struggles to make some of the throws he needs to be able to make to score consistently with red zone passes, not to mention the fact that he's not likely to get much help from his receivers this season. I don't know what the solution is exactly, but I think one place we could start is putting a little more nuance into our read-option plays. There seems to only be about two variations to our read-option right now, and it's being called in pretty predictable situations. We also, imo, don't make enough use out of the dive when we option. Maybe that's just Cam or maybe that's the scheme. I don't know.
I'm pretty sure the reason he got moved was that his arms are too short for an elite Tackle or some such nonsense like that. But Amini is nimble for a big guy, so there's actually a chance that could be true. Also the bar is very low for him to be a better OT than he is an OG, lol.
It would be interesting to see if TJ Graham can be more productive with a competent QB, something he's never had in Buffalo. But honestly I think he's pretty much the same player as Corey Brown. Speed guy with sub-par hands and not enough polish on the rest of his game to make an all around good receiver.
Lol, what? What plays did he take off? He had one bad drop. No different than the stupid mental mistakes half of our starters were making that game. IIRC he only got like 2-3 carries apart from that, and the line got no push on any of them.
Where the hell did the Cotchery hate come from in this thread again? Didn't we put that to bed just last week? Did everyone start hating on him again because he was never targeted this game or something? Also the notion that he is not sure-handed is utterly ridiculous. Dude has dropped 1 pass in his Panthers career. People just remember it because it would have been a game-winning TD.
So....is "Camp MVP" the kiss of death for our team now? Last year it was Frank Alexander and he missed almost all of the season (granted that was his own fault) and this year KB is gonna miss the WHOLE season. Can we start naming opposing players as our camp MVP?
