I know this aint the football bored, but ####, it's like Elliot is trying to lean into every bad thing people say about him: https://twitter.com/gmraynor/status/1442516298706022403

Highlights include: Clemson runs the same plays as everyone else in the country, but they don't work for us, unclear why. Elliot wants to simplify the offense(!!!!!) to make things easier for DJ but doesn't want to slow DJ down. Wanted to take more shots downfield but couldn't because...we couldn't get 4 yard runs? What?

I was skeptical coming into this year. This dude needs to be gone.

Thats almost worse imo. We are not just bad, we are possibly the worst offense EVER at Clemson.
We are now 121st in total offense in the entire country.

What he's saying is he can't get them ready 4 games into the season.
The lack of fundamentals is his doing, not the kids. He gest paid 2 mill a yr to get them ready to at least be respectable.

fun to play Augusta National. Plus Pinehurst #2, Whistling Straits, Harbour Town, Sawgrass, Bethpage Black, Pebble Beach, St Andrews, Greenbriar, etc. Esp with the real golf club attachment, pretty darn realistic. Except you can't really hit it fat, kinda like at a mat driving range. All the other shots are there though, good and bad.

Only video game I own.

it worked before because of the players we had

the players out there this year are not getting it done but it is up to the coaching staff to make it work and if that means not running the same plays then they should probably do it

front, 3LBs, 5 DBs, Hand it to Shipley on the right side on the zone read, center blocks middle guard, right guard blocks DE, left guard takes MLB, RT takes OLB on right side. It ain't rocket science.

Plus, like I say over and over, execution is also the responsibility of the OC.

Yep. Criticizing the play-calling is lazy.

[2]
Sep 27, 2021, 4:21 PM

The problem with this team is, like you said, the execution. With how long we've been elite and with how long the rest of the ACC has been chit, we should be able to just line up and run up the middle and win games and the fact we can't do that is shocking (this has been a growing problem over the years, too). It's a failure from Dabo on down to the offensive coaches and it has to be fixed through recruiting and coaching.

It's not play calling, it's the scheme.

running draw plays on 3rd and 8 or throwing deep over and over on 3rd and short, yea.

It seems we do give up on the run too early but if you're continually being stuffed for a one yard gain over and over, you do have to switch to your passing game almost exclusively until you hit some passes to open up the run game.

I agree with TE that it's mostly an execution issue, but that's also his responsibility.

We've run a pretty similar offense since 2011. I'm not in favor of any kind of complete overhaul. We just need to toughen up in the middle and the playmakers need to make more plays.

I'd say it's pretty different, at least to my untrained eyes

[1]
Sep 27, 2021, 4:32 PM

we don't run hurry up, jet sweeps, or shifting formations nearly as much as we did with Morris. Whether or not that's an expected and necessary adjustment or a condemnation of TE, I don't know. Before you jump to the obvious "condemnation b/c look at this year!" remember that Chad Morris and Muchamp's careers have been destroyed possibly because they didn't make an adjustment and everyone caught up to their scheme (I don't know for sure that's what happened).

To me, the problem is execution and misses in recruiting more than the play-calling. When we had NFL-caliber offensive talent on the field we were elite, but we don't seem to have that on our offense right now and the woeful condition of our O-line certainly exacerbates everything. Honestly, at this point, we should be so stacked that we can just run up the middle every play and blow people out (I'm reminded of the WF game a few years ago where we had 3 100 yard rushers in the game). The fact we can't is a condemnation on our recruiting over the last few years more than the play-calling.

Feels like we're getting some double whammies here

Sep 27, 2021, 2:32 PM

There were some times on Saturday where the play calling looked pretty good and DJ flubbed it. Or the O-line didn't hold up.

We may just have a perfect storm of #### this year.

[3]
Sep 27, 2021, 2:49 PM

TE has been calling the same exact plays for 6 years and defenses have finally cued in on his playbook? Now that he doesn't have generational talent at QB opposing DCs can make every position group look at lot worse than they actually are because they can blow up plays before they even start.

flag link

That may be a factor. All defenses key on certain tendencies

[1]
Sep 27, 2021, 3:19 PM

We need to be able to recognize when this is happening successfully for the opposition and catch them off-balance.

I still think execution is 90% of our issue. GT was playing a three man front and stuffing our running game. That ain't the D being cued into what we're doing. That's an execution issue.
