anyone who watched AE return punts.. or i guess I should say attempt to return punts as he COMPLETELY messed it up...

after he messed up 2 punts in a row... was I the only one rooting to see AE try for a third... was I the only one wanting to see just how bad it could get?

You could've put this in one of the other threads... but no, I didn't want to see him try again.

I dunno if the square has to go into the circle then the time to engineer that is not now, maybe during practice when the season is tanked because if we want to salvage this season we can even pretend to try that garbage in a real game

i don't understand why they wouldn't let him keep tryin'. I mean obviously he can do decent in camp. so maybe he is just having game day jitters. I know it sounds dumb, but he wasn't on national TV up in boone, and maybe just maybe nerves and stage fright is his problem. so give him reps until the nervousness goes away, and maybe then he will produce. I mean its only preseason. the wins don't count. so therefore the turnovers don't matter. so why not? I understand it kinda matters during the first half. we need the ball to see what the offense can do, but why not take the bulk of returns the in the second half and all in the fourth quarter?

Because they wanted to see the offense play a little.

ha.. i know, but by the fourth quarter atleast give him some more reps? by then you have seen the what the offense can do on that particular D. if the return game is just asimportant as the offense and D shouldn't it be just as important to find out exactly what you got on ST before its to late?

definitely

What a disaster. I wish the young man luck and hope he has a nice career, but its certainly looking like and awful, awful draft pick. Which i think everyone really thought deep down inside anyway.

Again... two preseason games... major position change... did everyone expect him to be superman? Just how many 2nd and 3rd round picks contribute immediately and excel?

This is the time to learn, I think I would have left him in. At this point he needs something to go his way- I think a little confidence will help him a lot.

    • Of course, he's so massive he has his own gravitational pull. 
    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.
