Nah....DJ has had almost 2 years in this system....no excuse....He looks completely lost and his football IQ is nowhere near what we saw with Watson and TL. It shouldn't take til October for him to pulls things together.
Is Tony Elliot more Chad Morris or Rob Spence. I'm thinking we're getting a lot closer to the answer....
You just freaking nailed it. There is too much talent for that OLine to look like that. That crap has been going down hill since Scott left. Blah blah blah .. same plays over and over and over. There is no spark , no fight !! Someone needs to get them the paddles so they all can get a jolt!!!
"I love this place, I've got a spot already picked out where I want 'em to put me when I die - up there on that ole hill near the stadium. I want to be there so I can hear all them people cheering my Tigers on Saturdays; then I won't have to go Heaven; I'll already be there."- Frank Howard
Kelly was a pure zone read QB who couldn't read the pressure

He also wasnt honest with his strengths and weaknesses. If he had been, and had been able to successfully run the zone read he would have been a fine college QB even for a team of our caliber at the time. From what I have seen thus far, I would say DJU has more similarities to Kelly. I do believe the coaching staff is not letting him run as much this early in the season. If you remember after DWs frosh year, the staff has SLOWLY worked the QB running game more into the gameplans as the seasons have progressed...unfortunately this OL version needs the QB to run now in order to open other things up for this offense. It is ugly right now.
