DJ hate

emoji_events [35]
Dec 30, 2021, 5:50 PM

7 WRs hurt
3 freshmen RBs
Mediocre OL

We started Will Swinney in the slot for the final 3 games. And two true freshmen alongside him. Pace and Shipley aren’t the receiving threats that Etienne was. And neither are the home run threat that he was either.

Perspective is important.

We return our top 6 offensive linemen next year. Pace, Shipley, and Mafah will be a three-headed monster. Davis Allen and Briningstool at TE. Hopefully Ngata and EJ can stay healthy for a full season. Beaux and Dacari showed a ton of promise. Spector, Stellato, or Will Taylor could emerge in the slot.

DJ is still that guy that torched BC and ND last year. He just didn’t have much help around him this year. Calm down.

People don’t hate DJ the human being. A vast majority hate DJ the QB. Because DJ the QB is not good enough to be the QB at Clemson. That’s all there is to it. Cade Klubnick will be here in a few weeks to right the ship.

Maybe you should calm down? There won’t be much to complain about soon concerning DJ the QB.

I’m talking about DJ the QB. Everything I mentioned was about him as a QB. How he had play with a ton of injuries, freshmen, and walk-ons.

Trevor had a healthy Tee Higgins, Hunter Renfrow, Amari Rodgers, and Justyn Ross his freshmen year. He had Higgins, Amari, and Ross his sophomore year. He had Amari, Cornell, and EJ his junior year. Trevor had Travis Etienne every year. He had our best OL in Dabo’s tenure.

Deshaun had Mike Williams, Renfrow, Artavis Scott, Deon Cain, and Ray Ray McCloud. Deshaun had an experienced Wayne Gallman at RB. He had Jordan Leggett at TE. He had an above average OL that stayed healthy all year.

DJ had Beaux Collins, Dacari Collins, Will Swinney, and Will Brown for his final 3 games this year. He had three freshmen RBs. He had a banged up OL that was mediocre at best.

Perspective is important.

Agreed not all on Dj but a good portion was. He made poor decisions at times, poor defensive reads, was inaccurate on deep balls, stared receivers down, and seldom went through his progressions. Some of that was due to poor O line play some due to youth. Countless dropped passes but also countless missed passes to wide open receivers. Blame does go all around. That being said if he is the starter next year I will be right there cheering on our Tigers no matter who is on the field playing. A Tiger is a Tiger and a name on the back of that jersey doesn't change that.

“We played really poorly around him earlier in the year” - Dabo, in his post game presser


We dropped 30+ passes in the first 6 games. Many would have been first downs in big situations (Galloway vs UGA). Some would have been for TDs (Ross vs NC State). We had WRs run poor routes that led to INTs (Ross vs UGA). We had offensive guards running into each other (Tate and Putnam vs GT).

Dabo said the players around him played poorly around him. The stats certainly bear that out. Plus, the coaching has more knowledge about the offense than we do.

Maybe you disagree with the coaches.

Go back to 2019, Trevor’s sophomore year. Amari Rodgers was still recovering from his torn ACL. Justyn Ross moved to the boundary position. Diondre Overton becomes the starter in the slot. Travis Etienne is still our RB.

Trevor struggled those first two games with Higgins, Ross, and Overton as his starting 3. Against Georgia Tech and Texas A&M, Trevor was 37/57 (65%), 218 passing per game, 2 TDs and 3 INTs. He had all 6’4 WRs on the field, no true slot, and no threat in the screen game. Then, Trevor got Amari back in the slot. He got a WR that could take a screen 80 yards for a TD, like Amari did in his first game back against Syracuse. And Trevor started playing better. Again, keep in mind he had Higgins and Etienne all year. Trevor also had three offensive lineman starting that got drafted, plus 2 more seniors in Cervenka and Pollard.

DJ starts this year against UGA, with the best defense in college football. He didn’t start against an awful GT team like Trevor did. DJ had the same probably at WR, we were starting all 6’4 guys (Ross, Ngata, Ladson), with no true slot, and no threat in the screen game. Trevor didn’t have the best RB in school history though, he had Lyn-J (who transfers later) and two freshmen. And DJ has a much worse offensive line than Trevor did.

So, naturally, DJ struggles early on like Trevor did. The difference? Trevor had better players around him, while DJ’s best players start getting hurt. Ladson goes down first, then Ngata, then Ross, EJ played hurt all year. DJ never had a WR as good as Tee Higgins. DJ never had a WR like Amari Rodgers. DJ never had a RB as dangerous as Etienne. And DJ never had a great offensive line, like Trevor did.

This is what Dabo meant when he said that all of his QBs have struggled, but we weren’t as good around DJ as the other guys. He was right. DJ struggled with all 6’4 WRs starting, just like Trevor. Then, all of them get hurt, and he finishes the season with a walk-on and two true freshmen.

Dabo is never going to throw any of his players under a bus, especially not his starting QB. DJs a great kid and I can’t understand anyone not wanting to see him come out blazing next year and be the man but this year he missed way more passes than were dropped and in general his decisions were not good. Numbers don’t lie- he had more picks than TDs, was very near the very bottom rated QB in all of CFB and was personally responsible for opponents scoring 34 points against us. That’s not hate, that’s facts. Hers to hoping that he is as good next year as he was bad this year. If so, we’re back in the CFP.

a playoff game regardless of how much better the rest of the offense plays or our defense plays.

It is important that our QB make good decisions, have good mechanics and accuracy, be able to move his feet when things break down which they inevitably do, and either make a play in the throwing game or by running it himself. DJ was not good at those things this year. No matter who was playing at the other positions.

Before the game last night in the radio broadcast interview with Coach Swinney, he was commenting on Coach Streeter getting the OC job. He mentioned Streeter's work with DeShaun Watson, Trevor Lawrence and soon to be Cade Klubnick. No mention of DJ. He's compared him to DeShaun Watson with more speed. Sounds like he knows something.

Just waaaay below our standards. RB emerged as a great asset, and I thought the OLine started playing really fine by the end of the year.

But a lot of DJ’s throws were ducks and way off the mark. He fixated on his target. His running was slow. There is much to be done to improve his performance. I’d love to see it but it will be a lot of work.

DJ is a well mannered young man who has been one of the worst starting QB’s in the country in 2021.

He was a recruiting miss who did not attend the top h.s. QB camps where his shortcomings would have been better identified. That said, DJ’s lack of mobility, lack of accuracy, inability to audible, inability to hit secondary & tertiary receivers, and inability to lead greatly impacted other 2021 starters and players. From game 1 to the bowl game, it was clear T.E., Street and Dabo did not respect DJ’s skill sets and his ability to make routine plays. In turn, this impacted Clemson game planning and opposing coaches’ success in game planning against a very predictable Tiger Offense.

Hate is not the right word. It’s disappointment. There is a difference between hating a player and understanding how his play negatively impacted the team. I’m usually a fan of your posts, but in this post, you seem to blame injuries and other players for DJ’s shortcomings.

If W. Swinney starts ahead of Ajou, it’s because coaches believe Swinney is more effective. It’s next man up. It’s best is the standard. No excuses. And Tigers got the job done in the bowl game. Job well done! Now it’s time to rest, and then develop and prepare for 2022 with competition at every position including QB.

Re: DJ hate


Dec 30, 2021, 9:05 PM

Instead of using the word “hate,” we could just state the blatant facts? DJ is a great young man; however, you need a commander in chief like DW4 and TLAW were. There were problems all around him… yes. Not denying that fact. But when the offensive line is protecting him good and he throws it 10 feet over the receivers head, there is obviously a problem there. When he has an open lane to run and gain a first down and he fails to tuck it and run, there is a problem there. I hope he fixes this and gains chemistry with the receivers coming back + the new ones. It seems as if the biggest thing he lacks is confidence in the pocket. I know he has talent… he has a good arm. But there are just some obvious things he needs to do in order to keep the starting job next year. Maybe he needs that fire under him with Cade coming.

I’ll be shocked if Cade starts by game 3 or 4. I think there is a very good chance Cade doesn’t start until 2023.




The transfer portal changes the whole seniority BS he does. If that trash can is allowed to trot out there next year before Cade, this is assuming he isn’t a bust like DJ, then he will take his as and talents back to Texas. Can’t play those games anymore. Players will leave. And if he is a bust and can’t eat out a historically bad QB, we will struggle to win 10 games again or the ACC.

Hate is a strong word....how about unsuccessful....Love DJ as a person/student, but as a QB he falls short of "good". His year was mediocre at best. When you throw as many interceptions as touchdowns, it's proof in the pooding. We will see what spring practice brings. i do believe in Dabo's decisions.....Go Tigers!!

A solid assessment. I am pulling hard for him to find his way out of this sophomore slump and be the starting QB next year. I think many of us are perplexed to see quarterbacks like Sam Hartman and Kenny Pickett have much better years with comparable -- at best -- supporting talent, especially considering what DJ did last year in limited action.

Hartman was 10th and Pickett was 11th in the ACC last year. So things can change.

Trotsky, you were a brilliant Russian and a very smart Tiger. DJ could not have won games by himself and he did not lose them by himself either.

He looks good in the passing drills. Maybe flag football better suits him. Plus he doesn’t have to take hits.
