I was at the game and I have a couple topics to discuss.... Well more like eye opening rebuttals to the slander thrown at the QBs, but also the unfair advantage that the defense had...
** First of all, this was an A-day scrimmage and should not be scrutinized OR glorified as being the tell all end all. Here is an optimistic view which raises a good point IMO.
Q) I think this offense has the potential to lead the SEC in rushing yards this year, but how much more dynamic can this O be compared to what we witnessed at a-day?
A) I feel like we saw a very vanilla play book which only utilized the running backs, for gaining yards on the ground, and didn't allow us to see what the QBs could do with their legs. Obviously the QBs weren't live and couldn't be hit etc so therefore they didn't really make the reads that they would in a real game where they would tuck the ball and run. I only saw 3 (I believe) plays where the QB actually gained yards by running. However this does not excuse the bad throws and dropped passes. KF gained good yards the two times he kept the ball, one resulting in a touchdown. Which raises my next question...
Q) how good is our defense?
A) I feel that they sort of had an unfair advantage knowing that the QBs would not be running the ball which left them only defending the RB. The two time that KF kept it they were all out of position. Discipline will correct this IMO. I am confident that this team will make big strides towards greatness this year but I don't feel that the a-day game was a good example. WDE
