Don't understand the rebuilding talk on here

[3]
Posted: Jan 25, 2014 10:37 AM
 

In truth I get the feeling we are re-loading this year. We have very solid depth at all positions.

OB - both Stoudt and Swag have good game experience

WR - Williams, Peake, Humphries are game ready, plus have lots of 2 deep players

TE - Cooper, Leggett, Seckinger are ready

RB - all bigger stronger backs following a better OL

OL - almost all returning and the replacements have lots of playing time last year

DL - we are gonna be real tough here

LB - good mix of experience and young talent

DBs - this could be a slight learning curve but my bet is on Venables and Brooks making them better than we've seen for 3 years

I see our offense being just as potent

I see our defense being a mean and nasty unit with attitude

To all the 8-4, 9-3ers on here, we are gonna shock ya'll


Agree. I feel very confident about this team.***

ReLoading - agree wholeheartedly - just good rational

thinking - thanks and if you notice the percentages of the naysayers, it is usually pretty low with many of them below 70% which is FAIL, and the ones who are higher percentage, are just innocent and gullible!

I agree. We can beat every team on the schedule!

We should be favorites in every game but FSU and GA. I think USuC has several losses by our game.

We only lose the best QB and WR we've ever had

And our RB. I guess we are the only team in America immune to rebuilding. Smh

Our RBs will probably be better w an improved O line. I liked Hot Rod and he earned his play time but these younger guys have more talent. We can't replace Sammy but we have 3 solid starters, TE play will be improved. And defense no doubt will be better. I loved Tajh but the system we have will be fine if we take care of the ball.

Let's wait and see if the O line is improved. The O line has been a weakness for 10 years. Hard to see that changing.


thanks 50% Cugrad? you proved my point = FAIL***

Tennessee was doing its thing when Peyton came along.....their HUGE mistake was firing PHIL FULMER.


You missed the point. UT won all 13 games after Manning

AND they won a national championship.

That glass you see as half empty.......it's actually almost full.


I respect Tajh, but he can be replaced. We have system


Posted: Jan 25, 2014 11:56 AM
 

that will make Stoudt and Kelly look just as good as Tajh, and maybe better in some aspects of the game.

I don't think QB will be a problem next year AT ALL. There should be no drop off there.

Losing Sammy and Martevus will hurt, but we are really deep at WR and I think many of these guys will standout. I just want WRs that have reliable hands and run reliable routes. Sammy's hands were amazing --- some of the best WR hands EVER, at any level.

No longer rebuilders but now reloaders - some sports

writer coined that one.


And it is an excellent reframe - big difference between

rebuilding and re-loading - I have never seen Clemson be in this good of a re-loading ability, and I graduated in '66! Thanks to Dabo!

I think our D-line is going to mask a lot of the issues on both sides of the ball next year. I just don't see any way teams are going to be able to run on us, so the story again is preventing big plays through the air.

The season will hinge on QB play and O-line play, as it has every season since Chads been here.


so

SC will lose to UGA at home (longest home winning streak in the country) but Clemson will beat UGA on the road. Keep drraming. Not saying we are a shoe in to win but if we are a shoe in to lose then so are you. Good logic there.


You should go back and read some of the abuse I took...

when I said we'd be better this coming season than last.

It was good for me though, it reminded me to never marry again.
