Putting together a playbook for the Clemson offense against Syracuse.
First 11 plays of the game so far.
-DJ is still overthrowing critical back shoulder designs. -Ajou completely missing blocks. -Elliott runs DJs 3 favorite receivers deep on 3rd and long. Nothing over the middle. -Ross drops a wide-open pass. -Taisun package includes DJ at WR hinting at an obvious run. -Bockhorst is told to pull to the right but play is a counter to the left and causing the NT to go free.
- DJ is still overthrowing the receivers especially on touch passes. - All of WR's including Ajou need a lot of work on blocking. - DJ's third down target is very predictable. He tends to focus almost exclusively on Ross - On the Taisun package, if he hands the ball to Pace, it goes for a huge gain if not a TD. - Why is the OL being asked to pull? They have enough trouble blocking the defender directly in front of them.
Thanks, this is good stuff. Finally someone going to quit bitching and just lay out what went right/wrong...
First series, here is the summary. 2 positive plays followed by 4 negative plays and a punt. less than 40 yards so I add that to the overall negative.
