Deshaun Watson

For those that think Watson has been off this year, his stats are actually better than last year.
Completions Attempts Comp % Yards Yards/Completion TDs INTs Yards/Game
2016 164 258 63.6 1950 11.89 20 8 278.6
2015 131 189 69.3 1553 11.85 13 8 221.8

I think he was a more dangerous runner last year but that could have something to do with Oline.

Yeah but he didn't start running a lot until about the middle of the year

I'll assume you mean thru the first seven games of last year vs this year.

Yes, that's correct.***

was that not a given? Did you REALLY need that explained?***

His numbers have been better...

Posted: Oct 21, 2016, 7:58 PM

but it doesn't look like it really matters in the media viewpoints.

In the latest ESPN's Heisman Watch, even with 75% completion with 39 compete passes and 378 yards in the air, although Watson is still #2, they listed Watson's trending as "down". (Look at the red arrow besides his name.)


I guess Watson will just need to continue what he's been doing, eliminate interceptions, have maybe another signature win against Florida State and then hope Jackson to fail miserably in order to get to the top once again.

Lots of season left to play***

Well, this primetime monster of a game

coming up in Talley is going to go a long, long way in getting him big time in the Heisman race -- or not.


Deshaun Watson = expect him to get better every game all the

way to the Championship, where he is at his best again, and our defense is better - not giving up the long plays with better safeties, and a much better special teams. GO TIGERS DW4 ALL THE WAY!


Numbers only part of the story

More dangerous offense in 2016 with known commodities plus allamerican wr... but offensenot up to expectations

Just admit it, hes been a tad off, its okay

If we didn't already amass 16 turnovers this year, (6 of which were in the red zone), and have 23+ dropped passes, I think Deshaun Watson would be the only name in the conversation.

Catch every pass, don't give away the ball & we cannot be stopped. Let's go Tigers!

CUYankee. I agree. But my concern is we are over halfway through the season yet these problems have not been resolved....meaning they will likely not be resolved. I expect Clemson to lose two games by seasons end if these problems are not corrected. As talented as Clemson is, no one can continue winning games while turning the ball over four, five, or six times a game. Something has to give.

I agree to extent but... we have won 21 of the last 22 games and lost the turnover margin in 40% of those games. Currently, out of 128 teams, Clemson ranks 122 in turnovers lost. Between Louisville and NC State alone, I believe we had 9, right? Yet & still, we are undefeated. We sure aren't making it easy on ourselves but as the stats show, minus TDs, Deshaun is ahead of where he was this time last year and you saw how we finished running on fumes. I believe this bye week tightened up the gaps, allowed us to heal up and refocus on the fundamentals that are killing us. I'm expecting a big showing next weekend. Let's stay optimistic Tiger fans!

Just in case you didn't know...

Clemson was among the bottom of ACC last year in term of turnover margin and fumbles lost. It's nothing new to us.

Not that it's something that the coaches don't need to fix. It can be considered as a good thing that we've been good enough to go through even with those mistakes, but at the same time it can be considered as a bad thing as disaster is due to happen.

I agree.*****

he didn't get run like a rented mule until later in the year

Posted: Oct 22, 2016, 11:16 AM

they are probably similar

his completion percentage isn't...anybody who has seen him

Posted: Oct 22, 2016, 11:15 AM

throw the deep ball knows it's off compared to last year

Get that completion % up 3 to 4 points and everything will be great.

Posted: Oct 22, 2016, 11:19 AM

Not all of it is his fault. Lots of drops. But let's get that deep ball working, boys!


Re: Deshaun Watson

Posted: Oct 22, 2016, 11:51 AM

And this was accomplished against better defenses and less run support. Just because he's not hitting 50 yard bombs and The wide receivers have had a dozen drops, people think he's off
