    Embarrassing, at best.

    Auburn should be up 38 - 0.

    Exactly what system would he prosper in where he can throw the ball five yards out of bounds or at the reciever's shoe laces? He is awful.

    Stidham is awful.

    Texas A&M at uat

    Two TD passes to the tight end...........why can't we do that? Oh, wait, I remember. Our starting TE just left the team. SMH.

    The REAL issue

    Playing defensive back is arguably one of the toughest positions on the field. When they play well, you never know it because they cover so well that the receiver never gets thrown to (and hence, doesn't get on camera). When they play poorly or just lose on a 50/50 ball, it gets replayed over and over again both on TV and the jumbotron. And, occasionally, they end up on the wrong side of subjective PI call. Cut the guys some slack. The stats from Saturday game indicate that they played reasonably well, at least in my book: LSU was 8 for 20 on third down (40%) and QB was 15 for 35 (43%). I fail to see the glaring weaknesses you say exist. Could they have played better? Sure, but the game was lost in the last two seconds. Maybe you can point to a play or two that mistakes were made but you can't lay this all on the OL and defensive backfield.

    Post-LSU -- Coordinators Speak

    I'm not sure this would help. It seems to me that this (QB breaking down under pressure and not going through his progressions/reads) is more so a physiological issue (afraid of being hit) as opposed to a learned (or un-learned) response. If so, I doubt it could be coached out of him.

    Post-LSU -- Coordinators Speak

    I agree. The defensive backfield has received alot of criticism on this board but they played reasonably well (not withstanding the questionable PI calls, as you mentioned). Well enough to insure a victory, for sure. I suppose you could point to the blown coverage on that one long TD pass/run if you had to find something to complain about. The issues rest with our offense. 21 points is often not enough in any SEC vs SEC matchup. With the talent that we supposedly have on this team, we should be scoring 35+ points per game. Particularly with all the praise that has been heaped on Stidham (who is just an average QB at best, IMO).

    So what's to come?

    Yup. SEC network aired an interview with Burrows leading up to the Auburn game and Burrows pointed this out specifically in his interview. He claimed that he was not afraid to take a hit in the pocket and would stand in to deliver a pass. He showed that several times Saturday. Burrows is one tough QB. Sorry but Stidham is an average QB at best. Often, when the pocket begins to break down, it looks like he drops his eyes and abandons the play. Maybe he has but I don't remember a time when Stidham stood tall and took a hit to deliver a pass.

    Auburn lacks the respect it deserves

    Close loss, in the final seconds of the game, to a better than thought LSU team. I see no reason to hit the panic button at this point. However, I have also said it many times. On average, CGM is a 7-9 win per season coach. Sorry, but that is just not good enough; especially given the amount of money he is paid and the national attention that our program gets.
