Can’t help but wonder if TL16 was bothered by cold weather tonight


Posted: Dec 5, 2020, 11:38 PM
 

12 of 22 for 190ish yards, but had some big runs and rush TD’s.

I can’t remember many other really cold weather games but I’m sure they’ve been at least a couple. He just never looked comfortable tonight and made some really poor decisions on throws.

Any thoughts or was tonight just simply an off night for him ???

Probably had something to do with our terrible OL play

It wasn’t great but he had some time on the Int in end zone and stared down receivers on lots of passes. That’s not like TL so I’ll chalk it up to just a poor night, hopefully not due to the weather. It’s cold in NY which might be where he ends up

No excuses, he had ample time to throw tonight...***

Rain , snow, weather is not a reason.

Long as both teams deal with the same conditions it’s a non issue

Yea it’s not excusable, conditions are same for all players in a given game.

But was his performance lacking due to weather is my worry ?????

35 point blowout, but it seemed odd they were trying to force it to Galloway early. I wonder why.

Maybe the Jets won’t draft him...

They aren’t drafting him. They are staying with Darnell and will trade down and get some players and more picks in return. That’s a good thing ??

He may end up in Dallas.

I bet Darnold is going to be traded for a 2nd rounder. Jets are going with TL. They have two first rounders already. I hope they do trade him though.

lingering effects from the virus, but I'm not so sure that the cold weather plus two-week break didn't have some role.

Now, I'm not complaining...we won...but he did appear a little off at times.

Maybe he was just trying to not get taken by the Jets.

Just think Trevor had a mediocre night...simple as that

Even great players have a game or two where they are not "in the zone". Doesn't happen that often with Trevor (against LSU last year being one of them) but he just had a sub-par night passing by his standards.

Look at it this way - I'd much rather Trevor have a sub-par night against VT where the margin of error is much greater than in two weeks against Notre Dame.

I am often wrong and most likely wrong again but who cares. I blames it on the OC for poor play calling. When ETN was in the games they loaded the line, run play. ENT out, TL16 was passing on most plays, coverage was good. A few times clemson fooled them and had to 19 yard runs by Dixon and the 50 yard td run ( cant spell the kids name). In my opinion play calling has been vanilla and suspect with the loss of the other OC.

The “other OC” didn’t call plays when he was here***

I believe that they shared the duties of play calling, one in the booth the other on the side line. They had discussion and came upnwith a plan.

Pretty sure Scott only helped with the game plan

Elliott has always called plays.

Not true... Elliott called the plays...

Scott only helped call plays during Chad Morris last season.

TL did not have a bad game. VT played well especially early. Some of you people have unrealistic expectations and clearly don’t understand the game of football. We ran the ball more last night and Virginia Tech dominated the clock in the first half.

It was also incredibly windy. That plays more into the passing game more than the cold. The wind was blowing like #### the entire game, which is why some of the kicks and punts were short. Spires did have a bad shank, but the wind was a factor in the game. They made that 55 yard field goal because of the wind.

Trevor did not have a bad game, are you serious ??? Interception in end zone, another SHOULD have been a pick 6 as defender baited him into the throw to Galloway and was waiting. TL did not go through progression and he did have time. The OL played well enough, not great but TL has time.

No, the expectations are due to his performances through 33 college football games with the exception of 1 bad game against a very good LSU defense. Now last night was a poor showing, I don’t think VT did anything special and if you look at the year they’ve had then you might know this. Injuries, COVID crushed the year for VT

VT is not good, I repeat VT is not good. Do you think they are good then maybe YOU know nothing about football.

The passing game last night was bad. He made some good throws but overall performance was well below his norm.

My point was simply that maybe the cold weather played a part in his play, not trying to say he is terrible and can’t play. Good lord try to understand the point.

VT isn’t just good at the run, they are one the nation’s best.

We took their best shot and won.

Wasn't BC two years ago colder than last night? Not like we don't get cold weather here. It was 24 at night last week.

Yea I was thinking BC. It was 27-7 Tigers. BC was 7-2 going into the game, but shows nothing about weather. It was played 11/10 so I’m sure it was COLD lol

TL threw for nearly 300 yards, 29/40 1 TD 1 Int

Bad playbook and poor protection is the problem.


Posted: Dec 6, 2020, 10:15 AM
 

If he is playing for Bama, Fla, or OSU his numbers would be crazy good. All protect their QB, and run plays that have the receivers open...not jumping for 50/50 balls.

It was very windy and we were playing into the

wind in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. IMO he looked much sharper in the 1st and 4th with the wind at his back, but he didn't really get that many snaps in either quarter. VT had the ball for a lot of the 1st and TL got pulled after 2 or 3 series in the 4th so a lot of his time on the field was with that wind in his face.

I might be off on this one, but I think the wind was a much bigger factor than the cold.

Simple answer. Yes. That is what the NFL scouts will take away along with ongoing poor o-line and average wr play last night.
