If our DBs play that soft coverage and give a 10 - 15 yard

cusion it will be hard to get the D off the field.

If Morris calls too many long bombs, Boyd will be on his back more all night.

If Boyd gets rattled early, well...

But I don't think any of that will happen. I think Clemson wins and it won't be as close as most expect.

Play of the defensive secondaries will determine who wins. If Shaw hits the wide open receivers that GT and Citadel missed the last two weeks, it could be ugly. Hope Tajh is on his game.


I think El Cid only missed 1 open receiver ....***

I agree with your sentiment, but being thin at that position

still doesn't instill a lot of confidence. I know Blanks hasn't been playing up to the standard that most have expected of him so some may be quick to write off his injury as a minor loss. I'd still much rather have him available and playing...more often than not, we see the one or two bad plays and overlook all the great things he does.

If we have an effective pass rush and our DTs stuff the run, it'll help us out tremendously. I think Vic and company can get it done. Guy gets held all the time and still manages to make plays...

It really isn't fair to compare their play to teams like GT and the Citadel. They run 98.7 % of the time, so you kind of expect a DB to let a receiver go past him when he comes up to help stop them.

Who doesn't miss a WR in a game? Really? Boyd has overthrown plenty of guys wide open this year, so if he's on...it could get ugly too lol. All that kinda talk is pointless.


This place is infested.***

There's something in these hills.


Our CBs have played much better this year on a whole

I expect us to jam them at the LOS and play our safeties deep unless their run game gets going and we're forced to cheat a safety in the box. However, if that happens we are already in trouble.


I think a lot of that can be attributed to a more effective

pass rush...they go hand in hand. QBs are having to make quick decisions and force some passes making it a little easier on our secondary to make a play.

If USuCk negates the pass rush, our secondary will look bad but that is to be expected. You can't cover a guy all day long...sooner or later the QB will find a guy open or make the play with his feet.

Lot of ifs on this board. Here is an if for you. If we play like we have the last 4 weeks there will be no ifs. We win.

Our D is 10 times better than last year and unlike last year for this very game, we atleast have more than 2 CB's available and all are healthy. As far as the offense goes, I think Morris will mix it up a lot and keep SC on they're heels. We will have to take shots down field, but only when the time is right. I expect to see a lot of read options, screens and quick slants to open up the deep ball. I just hope Boyd does a good job on the Read option, he tends to get Hot Rod murdered on several occasions when he should have pulled it back. Again, all this boils down to PROTECTION and creating holes!

Line play will be the determining factor. Win the trench warfare.

El Cid only threw six passes!


We ran NONE of our screens last year


Posted: Nov 26, 2013 4:25 PM
 

not even or normal WR screens to the outside. I can't remember seeing us run those once all game.


Re: We ran NONE of our screens last year


Posted: Nov 26, 2013 4:46 PM
 

We probably didn't, that would explain why Boyd got sacked about 6 or 7 times. We're going to have to run some quick plays to neutralize the pass rush. I just hope we don't do those long dragged out play action passes that looks like they're in slow motion, he will be sacked before he looks down field if they do that to much. Just gotta mix it up.


Re: We ran NONE of our screens last year

That is true. We ran the ball pretty well the first half too, but got away from it in the second. All downhill from there. I'm still at a loss on the playcalling last year.

Screens will not work against the #####! Down field blocking isn't good enough and the chickens cover to well. If the OL doesn't block .... I will not 'tune in' to tigernet sunday morning.


To me, this will be the determining factor as to whether

our O line has improved. If we give up another plethora of sacks Saturday, I think it will be time to make some changes...whatever that entails.

Agree with that. The line play has kept us from being as good as most fans think we are. I hate to say it but the elite teams in the sec have them and Bama especially has the big guys who win big games. RECRUIT tough guys and let the little athletes go somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!


That's why I'm excited about guys like this

Can't wait to see our line next year...


Jam their WR's at the line.

I don't believe they're physical enough to beat us on a jam.
